tough choice

i have the stepside bed on my ranger, and finding a cap, toolbox, or any bed equipment is tough for the stepside. my main concern is a cap. and maybe a nice tool box. i already plan on eventually repainting my truck due to having to replace both fenders. my question is: is it worth it more in the long run to replace the bed for a straight side, or is there any good deals out there on step side accessories? stepside owners speak up if you have found good outlets to buy parts from, or should i just switch to straight side from a junk yard?

No issues finding a toolbox, UWS.com . Not interested in a cap so cant help ya there and a few good things about having a steppie is--the bed is mostly fiberglass so dont have to worry about rust., a one person job changing the fuel pump.

have you gone on Craig’s List or the web in general to search for a Cap.
When I was interested I found three or four but then changed my mind.
Tool Boxes, there are plenty out there, I have a chest but wish I had one of the rear step boxes that allows the lid a little room to pick up.
I would have to look up where I got mine if there was a need.

As to the Steppie Question, “Should I keep the Stepside”?

Answer: There is no question in my mind that the Stepside is a better looking bed on a std cab Ranger but on an Ext Cab, it is your call but the steppie is still a nice looking bed.
