If you got the step side, I got prices this weekend from around $975-$1250. I really don't like the way they look. Google camper shell. LEER and others make them.

Truck bed cover

Topper

Softopper.com makes a canvas topper that lets down like a convertable top on a car. I like mine.

"Camper Shell," "Camper Top," and Topper refer to Camper Shells (Wikipedia), which are large caps which enclose the bed, plus an area of space above the bed, following the lines of the cab's roof. They're tall, airy, and can be used as sleeping quarters in camping applications.

"Tonneau," "Bed Cover," and "Roll Up" refer to Tonneau Covers (Wikipedia), which are flat, hug the top of the bed and whose "top" follows the lines of the bed. They're shallow and turn the bed of the truck into a trunk like a car, sealed and usually lockable.

Leer, Jereco, Century, and ARE all make fiberglass caps, and I know at least 3 of them make them for stepsides, probably all of them do.

I believe all of them will bulge at the front, at least all that I have seen. One that I might look at is an aluminum cap. It doesn't bulge at the front, but it doesn't look as good as a fiberglass one (IMO).

I have seen them in fiberglass and aluminum like you are talking about. I bought the opposite of what you are looking for though so my picture of mine would be irrelevant but I like it a lot, in the bulges they added windows to eliminate blindspots and it make for two shelves if you use it for camping.

i have had both on my truck i originally had a gold fiberglass one. one thing i hated about it, was that it was heavy as f***! i sold it at a very nice profit and found a black aluminum one. i love my aluminum one better cause i can easily remove it since its soo much lighter, and i think looks much better. i found both of mine on craigslist.

here's a couple pics that i have:

If you are concerned about looks, then I'd definately go with a fiberglass one man

The aluminum ones are okay if you just absolutely need a cap and don't care what it'll look like.

The fiberglass ones can look good but the aluminum ones look like a cheap DIY storage shed on the bed of your truck.
