I say either keep them on because it doesn't look to bad to be honest ha. The second thing you could do is try to sell them and get a really nice step bars and want be coming outta pocket since you would make some off of the ones you have on your truck now. I like my N-fab they sit closer to the frame and don't sag as much as the ones you have so they wouldnt look cluttered bud and they also look really good too hope this helps man!
I took mine off for a cleaner look since I lowered the truck, but it's still a little tough for my wife to get in (5' 1") If I ever get to drop it a further 2" she'll be much happier! Point is, if you don't need them, I say remove them.
I appreciate the comments guys. Although I'm still not sure whether or not I'm gonna take em off because I need to keep momma happy lol. But if I do take them off they are welded on and I'm not much of a handyman so how would I go about removing them myself?
They are not thick metal, take a sawsaw with a metal cutting blade and cut them off as close to the frame as you can get, then grind it smooth and touch up with either some black spray paint or a can of spray undercoating (I like 3M canned undercoating).

I forgot, the tubes most likely have a square flange on the ends. I assume they welded the bars on the frame at these square flanges. If this is how they did it just cut the tubes off as close as possible to the flanges and just leave the flanges there and grid the flanges smooth and spray them as mentioned above. Hope I explained this so you understand.:glasses:
