Styleside Only Pics

Postby Monkey-1 » Mon Mar 21, 2016 7:38 pm

Ran across this one at Cruising the Coast 2015. Really a slick little ride:

Reason: Edited by Admin to change thread title from "Fleetside Only Pics" to "Styleside Only Pics". Fleetside is a Ch*vy term.

I had to edit the thread title to change 'fleetside' to 'styleside'. We should probably first make sure we use the correct terminology when describing the different bed styles...it's important! Ford has styleside and flaresides, whereas Ch*vy has fleetsides and stepsides. While both describe the same basic bed style, each is a trademarked tradename for their own versions of these bed styles and are not interchangeable among manufacturers.

Here is a graphic I created a while back which illustrates this. I probably should come up with one that pictures dentside trucks, but you get the idea.

Many argue that 'fleetside' and 'stepside' are generic terms, but that is simply untrue. And Ford actually started using 'styleside' and 'flareside' terms TWO YEARS before Ch*vy came up with their own versions, calling them 'fleetside' and 'stepside'. :thup:
