take them off, i have them in the bed of my truck for almost a year now, i took them off about a month after i got it, i would rather have them in the back of my truck bed then on the side, and if u ever go wheelin, they will get messed up hard!


btw i have them in the back of my truck cuz i dont have a shop:(

those are the 2 door extended cab step bars. Im not a big fan. the bars on my truck are actually made by westin, and stamped with ford. however they are for a 4 door, yet my truck is a 2 door. but they look MUCH nicer than the 2door step bars.

i havnt messed any up. but i can agree, i was out the other day, the rear wheel was flexed out comin down a trail w/ on one a rock.. and anyways, i opened my door, and the rocks and gravel was about 3-4" from my rocker panel lol... they wouldn't have made it


my vote:ditch em, or leave em until u forcefully lose em haha

That's the reason I picked up a set of oem step bars. Besides, I missed having oem sliders =]

I would think that removing them would make the truck look higher, but looking shorter, now you're smoking crack...LOL

I was going to keep mine off, but I'd rather kick the mud/snow off my boots on the step bars then on my rocker panels. The less I scratch the paint, the less chance I have of rust starting......hey, it's a Ford....they rust out quick if you don't take care of them. LOL
