I'm not a fan of running boards but they definitely prevent the doors from rusting out up here.
Why is it going to the body shop?

I use them as well. The reason i actually took the off was one got bent last night going through a field and i caught a stump. I would like to get a set of N-Fab ones or some AMP style ones down the road.

Either you're single or your wife/girlfriend is really tall and doesn't need the steps! That's the only reason mine still has them!

OP, how the heck did you brother put a dent there?

About a week ago my brother was moving my Superduty out of the driveway while he was cutting grass so he didn't spray it with rocks. He turned around and was going up the hill into the back yard. The hill slopes a little bit from left to right. He was putting it in 4wd so he didnt tear up the yard. Well it rolled back a bit as he let off the brake and caught the mirror on my Dodge company truck. The mirror missed my bed but in doing so it caught the passenger cab corner above the bed and you see the rest

For girls to be able to get in and out. That's why I put some on my truck, and they still complain. And they're nice on bodylifted rangers because they block the frame from showing a ton.

Girlfriend has to work to get in...She thinks steps make the truck look short. I think it take the novelty out of having a taller trcuk

My girlfriend hates step bars and she wants me to lift my truck! So I think I'm one of the lucky ones
