    keep the nerf bars or take them off, i'm thinking about taking them off, i dont use them, truck is going in for window tint on tuesday and i've been kicking around the idea of painting my flaking wheels black, i think the silver bars will clash with the red/black theme

    I think the truck would look cleaner and meaner with them off. I used to have similar ones on mine before lifting it, and they always seemed pointless. painting your wheels would be cool as well, but definitely pull or paint the bars them black if youre gonna do that

    yeah that would look pretty awesome, i'll keep the "black badge" idea in mind, not sure if the paint will hold up very well on the nerf bars tho

    I think they look fine, they're functional as steps and off some protection for the sides of your truck. No sense in buying sliders if you don't go off-roading. As far as blacking everything out, personally I don't see the point in paying for nice aluminum wheels just to rattle can 'em but to each their own.

    I like them off. It makes the truck appear to have more of lift w/o them.

    I still have mine. I'd take them off but then my lovely wife and son wouldn't be able to get into the truck anymore, so: stay for me.
    Maybe I'll upgrade to something more pleasing to the eye (n-fabs) when money allows.

    Take the nerf bars off and pickup some Avid step rails in the future and don't paint your rims...

    I'm more a fan of step bars than nerf bars but it's your truck so my opinion shouldn't matter. If you like them keep them.
