There is a new design for the flare side toppers that I think makes them look 10000X better. The flare for the cab is near the bottom, and smooths out at the top so it doesn't look as dorky.

I don't have any pictures to show, but if you get one of the newer designs, I think it would look good.

I believe A.R.E. and Leer both make a topper with a similar design. The one I saw was for SURE a Leer.

I drive by the truck at most once a week, and it looks like the way I described. I will make myself go that way next Friday when I go into that particular town so I can snap a picture for ya.

Keep in mind, their toppers are the same models as the others for flare sides, they are just built for flaresides instead. For instance, a Leer 100R for a fleetside will have the same options available as a Leer 100R for a flareside.

Just about any topper looks bad to me flareside or not, but that's just my opinion.
