I think in 72 was the last of those 8ft stepsides. It could be earlier. I have seen some 67 to 72 trucks with them.
I plan to fix a couple of 8ft stepsides to make one good one to put on my 85. I think it will be cool and different. When I worked in the body shop. Restored a 68 chevy with 8ft stepside and it looked sharp. I could not understand why everyone wanted a 6ft stepside. The 8ft was more functional.
