    I've always loved the look of color matcched . I'm not a fan of black plastic. I'm getting the same bushwhackers and plan on color matching.

    lotta that
    I took mine off and bed lined with Monstaliner from the scuff line they made in the paint down and also bed lined the rocker panels. I used some tape to fill in the holes so if I ever want to put them back on I can just punch out the tape and get the holes back.

    im not a big fan of DIY bed liner. IMO get them line-x'd if you end up using bed liner. Personally i wouldn't waste the money on that tho id just rattle can em. but thats me.
