Running Boards

Saw this in another thread but didnt want to derail. I'm thinking about dropping the running boards on my Lariat (Not the king ranch style, the chrome tubular ones).

I have the 2.5" level kit with the 350 rear blocks and 295/65s on it now. What is everyones opinion on dropping these? I dont see getting in and out as much of a problem since I didnt jack it up too high.

EDIT: A FEW PICS - AFTER LIFT BUT BEFORE THE TIRES WERE PUT ON.

I have always liked the running boards on these trucks. Not so much the tubular steps but the chrome package steps are nice

A Little OT but: Dude! You sold your truck? What happened?

On topic: My old lady just informed me that she would not be too happy if I dropped the rails.

Dump them!

I had the same setup on my old 06 F250... 2.5" spacers in the front F350 blocks in the rear on 295/65/20 MTs. Took the running boards off and never looked back. I've thought about taking them off my current truck but I think I would get tired of jumping into a truck with a 6" real fast...

It looks good without, but your wife and/or girlfriend may not appreciate it. Mine were off for a total of 2 hours before I was forced to put them back on

I sold the truck to get in a 6.7. I went down to the wire on a new one and backed out. The more I read about the lack of performance opportunity with the 6.7 the more I wanted to stay with the 6.4. I picked up a 08 lariat last week for my new project.

Amp Research steps, best of both worlds but a little ruff on the wallet... it was money well spent.
