Default How to remove running boards on 1993 F150

My old truck needs a facelift, but as she and I have years together, I would like to do the work myself. The first that needs to go is the busted up running boards! Is there a way to DIY the removal?

Thank you for asking something I can answer. I have a '91 and it is similar. For this job you need a towel, a drill/screwdriver, and two wrenches.
1) lay the towel on the ground partially under the truck and lay down on it.
2) under the truck the running boards should connect to the truck via brackets
3) using your wrenches undo the bolt(s) holding the brackets to the frame
4) move to the other end of the board and repeat removal of bolts
5) get up and move to the wheel well, screwdriver in hand
6) unscrew the screws connected to the wheel well
7) move to the other end of the board and repeat removal of screws - caution, if you are not supporting the board it should fall at this point
8) repeat on the other board
If i was not clear enough or I said something wrong someone please correct me.

Remember, if you're at work and the coworkers aren't talking to you about the stupid guy, Then you ARE the stupid guy!!!
