I hear they are PITA to take off, but I'll find out when my bull bar gets here. I might sell mine off my 15 only 5k on it. You could probably bedline them or plasti dip them if you don't use them. I never used mine in my 06. I hear bad things about pulling I reverse and knock on wood I've never had to be pulled out. My buddy has been messing with hydro dipping showed me the basics a couple weeks ago. I'm looking forward to trying that with something. That might be a cool idea.
