Default Opinions on Running Boards.

What is your opinion on Running Boards, I currently have them on my truck and I'm 50/50 on deciding if I should take them off or not. I use them almost every time I get in my truck, but I think it will look much cleaner and somewhat bigger without them.

i like them on mine, because its all black. with a white truck like yours, they might interfere with the lines. im keeping them on because everyone is short but unfortunately the only place my truck has rust is on the passenger side board and the front u-piece is missing and was like that when i got it...

so, if you are going to get rid of them, maybe consider spray painting them white? if you hate it, no loss. if you like them, great and you could paint the foot area with some tacky paint for grip...

I took mine off and sold them on craigslist. Mine didn't look like yours though. I think it makes the truck look a little better without them personally.

I took mine off to make my truck look taller but I'm putting them back on because I'm old at 6' I still have to yank and jump into the truck.

I had/have the surf board on my supercrew and it looks kind of "Old man" on stock suspension but looks killer with a 3" body lift. They hide the frame.

I've never been a running board guy. I understand that they serve a purpose but I don't care for the look. I think tubular step bars look much better. I'm ok with that look and have actually considered them for my truck.

I guess that's why they make chocolate and vanilla.
