I think that style cap would look good on a stepside .As long as it's not one of those butt-ugly aluminum caps that always look like they were made from old aluminum siding

eh, i wouldn't get it personally. i don't like the style with no side windows. i had a fiberglass cap on my stepside, i thought it looked good. usually all caps look good on a lifted truck. but i sold it in favor of a clean black aluminum one for the weight. it's easier to put on, take off, so when you don't need it, its very manageable.

I say do it. It'll look good and you can't beat that price. Mine was 350 used and then I had to get it painted for another 250.

I would buy it. Its designed for your truck and is your color. $250 is the cheapest your probably going to find. That being said, make your OWN decision about the looks. If you dont like it Im sure getting your money back wont be an issue. Although most dont like the stepside cap its you that will be driving it.

I think certain step side trucks look good with a cap.

Idk there is a guy around town who drives a yellow ranger with a cap. He has stepsides and it honestly doesnt look too bad. I think it looks good on certain trucks.

personally i wouldnt get a cap for any truck. The whole point to a truck is to have a bed, and if you cover that up it is like you have a suv
