Scott,look at the inside lip of your fenders,particylarly in the rear fender in your photos. You see black push pins stuck into the holes where the flares would be attached if they were on the truck.

It looks like someone took them off,but put the push pins back in the holes.

No Flaresides were made with factory fender flares...there may be something there to fill the holes or keep inner fender trim in place, but the truck would not have come from the factory with fender flares.

If you like the way the steps look, leave them on. If not, take them off. Simple as that. I have thought about taking mine off since they are mostly useless, but they do keep stuff off of the rockers.

I didn't think the flaresides came with flares, but those holes with the pins in them seem to be in the same mounting location for the flares. True, they could be for the inner fenders. I'm not sure what an exposed lip is supposed to look like as my truck has flares and I've only gone as far as taking the mud flaps off.

hard to tell what they are in the pics. on my truck they look like the plastic push pins that hold the door panels on.
