You can always switch to a fleetside bed later on.
As said here if you plan on hauling anything get a fleetside.
Very good info on the differences.
I've posted this before - some plywood like 4X8 melamine and pre-finished plywood is actually bigger than 48X96" - they're closer to 49X97" and won't fit in the bed of my pickup. That's why I modified a trailer to accommodate the plywood and 12' boards. Then I just back the trailer into my shop and unhook from it so I don't have to unload and move the lumber twice
gotta love the matching rims! sweet set up Peter. I do something similar with my 6x8 dump trailer.
My stepside will fit a 4x8 sheet of plywood flat on the floor if I drop the tailgate. Monday I loaded up a washer and dryer and dragged them across town. A couple days ago I used it to drag a couple doors home from the junkyard. I think the 'extra capacity' of fleetsides is overrated. Do I need an extra 8" of width? Not really, and I like having a box that doesn't have wheel wells intruding into it.
The only issue with a stepside for me is finding a toolbox to fit. I don´t haul much but whatever I do haul fits in the bed.
