Back when mine was made (2002) the only fiberglass ones were the stepsides. The regular beds like mine are metal. That was true back to 2000 at least because a friends 2000 stepside was fiberglass.

I have no idea if or when the regular beds went fiberglass. I thought they were still metal but I haven't looked at one closely.

1993 is the first time they had fiberglass bed sides on Splash/Stepside/Flareside beds but remember it still has the steel tailgate and inside

lol!

Well, as usual, I have taken the level of discussion to a much lower plane, lol...and gone completely off topic in the process, and brought others with me. Ain't I talented?

My apologies to the original poster -- I meant no disrespect I just get carried away.
