The BedStep is reminiscent of old General Motors’ StepSide trucks, which contoured inward behind the cab in order to make room for an access step. These single cab StepSide trucks haven’t been around since the GMT800 trucks went out of production in 2006, but due to their relative obscurity and stylish look, they have a bit of a cult following among truck enthusiasts.
Want concrete proof of this passionate following for StepSides? We recently came across a video on Facebook of a GMT K2XX GMC Sierra HD that had been converted into a retro-looking StepSide – an expensive modification no doubt. It’s a bit of an awkward creation, if we’re honest, with the modern front end and old school rear clearly belonging to two completely different vehicles.
We’ll say this about the modern-day GMC Sierra HD StepSide mashup – it looks like the craftsmanship is decent. The fenders have some black protective trim that gives it a bit of a factory look and the builder has also netly integrated the fuel filler cap into the rear fender. The rear needs some work though – the modern GMC bumper looks absolutely hilarious against the backdrop of the retro tailgate.
This GMC Sierra HD truck appears to be for sale at a General Motors dealership in Mexico, so it may be a dealer creation. It may look awkward, but we can at least appreciate the ambition this undertaking required. Clearly there’s a dedicated StepSide fan working at this GM dealer.
If you have any more information on this weird creation, feel free to share it with us in the comments below. For now, though, check out the Facebook video embedded below – it’s a must-see for any GM StepSide or GMC Sierra fans.
