I'm making a guess... since most replacement body panels are thin cheap crap, could the crease be put there to stiffen the panel, i.e. make it stronger?

I have an english wheel with the dies to make "beaded panels".

That crease was in fact meant as a structural reinforcement, but it's not an aftermarket panel. BTW when it comes to dual-cab pickups, most of the ones I still see on the wild are Diesel.

And now the Amazonas
