You’ve probably never seen one of these, and for the most part, they are quite rare. The F-150 Flareside is a pretty unique truck in a lot of aspects. The one-of-a-kind stepside configuration is enough to sell the truck on looks, but the flareside was lacking in other features. The interior was rather bland in terms of design, and the truck had limited cargo capacity inside of the cabin due to the small size. The V8 engine is powerful and gives the truck a good deal of power, but the most common configuration you’ll see is the V6.
The flareside went on for a few years in production and it followed the redesign of the 1997 F-150 model. Stepside trucks have never commanded a large portion of the marketplace but there are still buyers for these trucks. What makes the stepside such a limited piece of the pickup truck market is the fact that the bed is a lot smaller than an average truck.
