I ended up removing them today. After closer inspection, they were pretty tight against the front trim, and dirt/sand was collecting in the crease. That had me concerned enough that there would be wear on the trim over time, it wasn't worth it to have the step bars on there. Now that they are off, I actually prefer the look of the HA better since you can see that lower trim styling.

Re: High Altitude Side Bars

tried doing some searching versus starting a new thread...

any HA owners with tubular side steps or running boards installed? looking for a compatible set w/ the HA as there are conflicting statements.

I used Westin 4" Platinum Oval Nerf Bars.

The only thing I had to do different from the instructions was mount the front bracket on the outside of the pinch weld vs the inside so it didn't touch the trim (and was more even front vs back).

Added a pic I had sent another member a while back. The support that goes out to the step goes touch the bottom of the trim slightly, but you'd only see that while underneath.
