really contemplating a regular bed swap

Anyone ever have the idea run through their head of swapping your stepside for a fleetside? I really live my stepside but I love the look of the headache rack and the toolbox with a tonno cover... OR go crazy and do the stepside panels on a regular bed but thats a little too much for me. Just some useless rambling, but I keep running it through my head.

same here, especially after moving. I could do a rack and toolbox for the stepside but a ridgeline would have a bigger bed than mine

I just really like the look of styleside over my stepside, I really want a different bed haha. The headache rack and ability to find bed accesories are plus's too.
