THESE TWO TERMS REFER TO TWO GENERATIONS OF FORD TRUCKS. Bump-side refers to Ford F series trucks of 1967-72 vintage, which feature a protruding bodyline midway down the cab and bed, hence the “bump” in “bump-side.” Dent-sides, on the other hand, have bodylines that go inward, much like a dent in a body panel, except it’s on purpose. Both styles have gained popularity in the past few years, partly due to the rising price of C-10s of the same era, and also due to the fact that they’re awesome. It just took people a while to realize it.
