Previous owner removed them, but I probably would have done it. I've always found that I adapt to getting in and out of the truck, it's a bit of a jump for my 5' tall girlfriend, but I'm there to help her get in anyways. I personally am not a fan of the stock running boards (just look out of place to me), and of course the truck looks taller without them. I may consider a set like the N-Fabs if I go any higher.
Are the stock running boards lower than the transfer case skid plate? If so, I would have bent them by now, I've some use out of the skid plate.
