    Need pics. Most guys remove them for the smooth look, just like debadging, but will depend on your current paint situation.

    Mine on my 04 were starting to look pretty dull, removed them all. I like the clean look better and only cost a little time and effort, well more then I care to admit.

    I got lucky, they were already off the 06, however the 13 Suburban had some paint work and with the kids, I might just leave them on. IMO they look so much better on the NBS model OFF.

    I'm all for taking them off, I agree it looks better. However with having kids, they do seem to prevent alot of door dings. Mine are body color but have a few spots where the paint is chipped off. I figure if I go to sell it one day I'll take them off and my sides will be spotless.

    You might try to put black and chrome ones off a yukon on, or the small chrome ones off a nbs sierra. Or just tape your current ones off and paint them.
