Keep running boards or no?

So I have an 8" lift on my truck and it just doesn't look like an 8" in my opinion. I did just trade my silverado with a 14" lift for it. But I'm thinking if I take off my running boards it will look a good bit bigger. [/IMG]

looks like 8" lift. if i were you i would leave them on because sliding in and out without them just tears up your seats. if your totally against them then id look into the amp research power steps that fold down when you open the door. these are like 1000-1200 new but i did see a set or two for sale in the classifieds section if that interests you. good looking truck though

I too love the Amp steps (had them on my duramax i mentioned in the original post) I just can't bring myself to spending $1200 on steps again.

I keep mine on in case i get to close to a snow bank plowing.
I'd rather bend running boards than truck.
Factory boards must be pretty strong, had some nasty sounds, but no damage too them.
YET.
Wife needs them to get in. She doesn't ride to often hates the turbo noise. 04

Check out Aries step bars, they are under 200 bucks, black, and sit way higher than stock, I put some on my truck and they are barely noticeable.
