Well here's my question to you all. Will you leave the nerf bars/running boards(whatever you wanna call them) on or take them off? I will most likely take them off. I've just never really been a fan of them on anything..
My Westin Chrome Nerf bars have been used over and over again to get my truck across burms...I don't think those little aluminum things will do the same, so will replace them with Nerf Bars. The stock bumper on my truck got bent up into my tailgate, bed and rear quarter-panel and ended up costing me several thousand-dollars to repair...I think these little aluminum steps will do the same imo.
I am deciding righ tnow whether to ditch them and get the amp research steps or leave it alone. In my opinion they should sit lower to aid more as a step if they are going to be there. Though that would hurt ground clearance, proving why the amp research steps are a better idea in my opinion.
