    Keep them on or leave them off. I am on the fence.

    I don't really like nerf bars- Not functional for much of anything except steps and they impede ground clearance and side clearance.

    I vote OFF.

    Depends. If they stick out far enough they can protect your truck from doors and shopping carts. They also take away from the weird line on the bottom of the cab without them

    My wife would freak out if I took mine off. She has a hard time getting my kids in the back and getting in herself.

    Are those black? If so I vote OFF and send them to me! :)

    Seriously if you leave em off and they're black let me know, I'd be happy to take them off your hands for a fair price.

    Looks better on. Black matches the red/black color scheme of your truck. I would recommend removing the hood bug deflector and debadging :)..

    If you offroad, off and get real sliders.

    If it's a pavement queen like mine, on. I've been saved from quite a few door dings because of them, a couple I even witnessed myself. Besides, it's easier to wash/wax the roof.

    Sliders get my vote! I also have some smaller more affordable steps soon to debut here on TW. They should be pretty cool.

    VERY interested. Like the sliders look but can't convince my bank account that pro grade off road sliders at $500-$600 are the best idea. Some "beefed" looking slider style bars might just be what I am looking for keep us posted!
