Sweet, thanks man! I've been halfheartedly looking but couldn't find one for a stepside.

I got the one that is a one piece plastic tube and did have to cut a half inch off each end and reseal it. If I had known I would have gotten the two piece one.

Glad that i didn't have to choose between a stepside and a regular, i don't know how long i would have hesitated...

Heck, i'm not even convinced it's a good idea to buy a hard cover during summer for the same reasons.

I love my 98 stepside. Someone write Ford and have them remake them again, they redid the Mustang...

I had a 98 red step side 2.5, and now I have a 98 straight 2.5. I really miss all the added horsepower and torque that the step side adds.
