i really just want the step bars back on, because the lady has trouble as it is getting into the truck lol, and its stock. the lift will only make it worse. and i also miss having a place to kick all the mud and stuff off my shoes when im out wheelin.

well duh... but he asked how they mounted...if they mounted to the frame....wouldn't you think if his truck had 'em before, and now theyre taken off....he'd know how they'd mount? thus answering his own question?
