Post Need new bed. What can i use???

Okay after looking at the bed really hard. I've decided to go with a new bed over jack hammering out concrete and peeling out caulk. Truck is a 1992 ext cab. I was wondering about using a 1993 - 1997 bed. I am just not sure how much change there was in body lines. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. What about a step side???

I think the step side beds look awesome, if they have a lift of some sort...

Thanks so far for the replies. I have always liked the look of the step sides. it came with a factory lift on it but I plan on adding 6" to it. I was just wondering about body lines matching up. Looking at one it looks as if the top line is the same but the bottom body line looks like it is higher up on the truck. Just wondering. Would hate to buy something and get it home and it not fit right.

93+ beds will not fit on your 92 unfortunately. im sure you could make one fit but the lines wont line up and if im not mistaken the 93+ body style rangers are wider than the 92 and older body styles.

i have a 2000 ranger with the stepside. its more of a pain than anything. the full size bed is still small enough where you can use the tire as a step if need be. just my thoughts on it. with the right set up, the step side can look really nice. i guess to help with perspective, my bed is about an inch to short to be able to shut the tailgate with my motorcycle in it. (1980 yamaha 650) so a small motorcycle is to long for it.
