Will a Stepside Bed Fit on a Regular Bed Truck?

A Stepside bed is a type of truck bed that curves out at the wheel wells, creating a stepped appearance. It is sometimes referred to as a “short-bed” or “flare-side” bed.

The main advantage of having this type of truck bed is that it provides more space for cargo, as there is no wheel well sticking out into the bed area. This additional space can be used to transport larger items or to simply make hauling items easier.

Will a Stepside Bed Fit on a Regular Bed Truck?

The short answer to this question is yes, a Stepside Bed will fit on a Regular Bed Truck. However, it may require some modifications in order to do so.

This is because the wheel wells on a Regular Bed Truck are typically not curved out like they are on a Stepside Bed. This means that the bed will need to be modified in order for it to fit correctly.

The first step would be to find an appropriate size Stepside Bed for your Regular Bed Truck. Once you have found one, you will need to measure the width and length of both beds in order to ensure that they will fit together properly. If there are any discrepancies between measurements, you may need to adjust the size of the Stepside Bed in order for it to fit correctly.

In addition, you should also make sure that the mounting holes line up correctly between both beds before attempting any modifications. If they do not line up correctly, you will either need to drill new holes or modify existing ones in order for them to match up.

Finally, once all of these steps have been taken and both beds are properly fitted together, you should be able to install your new Stepside Bed onto your Regular Bed Truck without any further issues.


Yes, it is possible for a Stepside Bed to fit onto a Regular Bed Truck with some modifications; however, it requires careful measurements and possible drilling/modifying of holes in order for it to fit properly.
