    should I keep the side steps on or take them off to plow this winter.

    you need 'em to get in the truck? does your wife? I can't see them making too much difference in plowing performance. It's kinda nice to have a place to bang off your boots before you get in!

    Steely some details would make things a little easier for a recommendation such as, height of the steps from the ground and are they stock or aftermarket? If they have 12" or more I have found that to be fine for plowing or if they are heavy Gage you could probably leave them on.

    are you talking about nerf bars

    i leave them on to protect the side of the truck

    rather dent the bars than dent the side of the truck

    i leave em on besides its not like there gonna get you stuck you'd be buried up to your axles b4 that happens just hose the salt off when you hose you plow off to clean the salt off so it doesn't start to corrode them
