I'd keep em on, I didn't think that not having mine on would affect a lot but it's quite a big difference and my truck is stock, I'm definetly putting them back on soon before my lift goes on

Remove them as soon as you can. Thats the first thing i've dine when i got my truck. These suckermare bolted to the rocker so if you it something you mess up your low end cab.

If you want side step buy or make some that are bolted to the frame. Im starting looking for some like this, also called rock slider.

I'd remove them, but either pick up some nfab steps, or get some amp....I took mine off and love it but to damn hard to get in and out....for me and others...so I wanted an aftermarket look, wanted the amp steps but damn they cost a lot.....so I went with the nfab...think they look a lot better then stock and do a great job...

You can get the nfab ones if you want those exact ones. But don't forget they also makes the steps for RBP and Smittybilt. Smittybilt ones might be a little cheaper if you are on a budget. If you aren't, go for some Amps
