Little more awkward getting out and is easier to slide off the seat, but it's still a drop, so I use them to get out also
Same process in reverse.
I do this mainly to keep from sliding across the upholstery and wearing it out.
I can get in and out without them though, if I chose to.
I've got a 2010 TRD Sport 4x4 with no lift.
The highest part of the edge of my seat is at about 33" and my belt line is maybe at 39"
Don't know if yours is the same height. You obviously wouldn't need them in a lower vehicle or if you're taller.
As I stated in my post above, I wouldn't have them, if I did any serious off roading, though.
