    I made my own, not quite a stepside but close...



    Started off with the tailgate, then made the rest from there, CDS tubing for the bottom (pic is upside down...!!!) 2"x2" box for the uprights, sheet steel for the sides (although go for full sheets, I didn't and it looks ****, but the sheets were free...!!) roll the tops, or have them folded, s/h wings and off ya go...

    Mine took a Saturday to make, but I had already pre bent the CDS...
