Flareside vs styleside?

I've read up on these but still can't figure out too much of a difference. Can some one identify wether this is flare or style side?

Thanks. Didn't realize flare was just another way to say step.

Step side has less bed-room. They also have a step in fron and behind the wheel well.

A styleside is the bed pictured above. The sides of the bed are flush with the cab.

Flareside and Styleside are Ford terms.

Stepside and Fleetside are Chevy terms.
