Steps or no steps...need a vote!

Hey everyone! Just did a super quick photoshop removing my steps on my 99. Figured i'd just do that before i went out and took em off. So, need a vote!

Should i keep the steps on or should i take them off...

Here she is with them...


And here she is without them...

I've been having my jeep for a few years now WITH the step on there and just recently took them off and so happy i did. Makes your Jeep look a few inches higher.

It looks like the poll is a little one sided. I agree, lose them.

Oh i guess I should mention this. Do you have a wife/girlfriend/boyfriend(being PC here)? My wife was PISSED when I took them off bc now it's a PIA for her to get in and out, I have a 4" lift, but she got over it.....I think?

If you start offroading on anything tougher than a dirt road or fire access road, you can leave them on and just let the offroad terrain remove the steps for you.

No steps unless you or others can not get in easily. They serve a purpose for some.

I would, but those are actually screwed into the door and fender...so i'd have the holes there. If i can find some armor i like, then i'll do it so i can cover them but if not, then they'll be stayin haha

Try the Poison Spyder Ricochets. They'll solve the problem of the pissed wife/girlfriend. Worked for me.
