Tube step delete mod

Pulled my tube steps off because i got tired of ramming my shins into them lol...i think it looks a HELL of a lot better without them and makes the truck look like it sits higher than it actually does

In the '70's and 80's it was running boards.Which rotted out the rocker panels.
In the 90's and 0x's it was tube steps.which smashed a lot of shins.

C'mon guys , WE have to design the next trend.
Let's get it right this time.
