Not really much information to go on other than it fit on a s10. Doesn't mean it was made for an S10.
I guess the only way to find out what it fits is to get the serial number off of it and contact the manufacturer.

I bought a camper shell that came of an S-10 for my 2004 Tacoma and although it fit length and width wise the height of the shell was about 2-3 inches shorter than the cab of my truck and it did not look right. At first I was just going to go with it but after a couple of weeks it started to drive me crazy. Luckily I sold it to a guy with an S-10 for the same price I bought it for.

Also, the slope (angle) of the front of the camper shell needs to match the slope of the back of your cab or there will be a big gap there. This is why a camper shell off a regular cab does not exactly fit on a extended cab and vise-versa. Trust me, I know because the camper shell on my extended cab Taco came off a regular cab. I just deal with the gap because the shell was so cheap.

I would just wait for something better to come up instead of settling for a shell off an S-10.

I picked up a cap off an S-10 for my previous truck ('97xtra) and it fit good (sealed well), and honestly I thought it looked fine but as veg hed stated it was shorter (height) than my cab and there was a rather big gap between the cab and cap which collected snow in the winter. I scooped it for $40 and it lasted me 6 months so it was a good deal.

It will work but I'm sure you can find something better.

here's a pic:

For $40 I probably would have made it work. But the other factor was that it was also the wrong color! That really drove me crazy...

I took the camper shell off my 96 taco so it should fit yours easy. I'm willing to sell it to you if your interested. It's heat insulated and gradualing raises to about 2-3 inches above the cabin. 6 foot bed right?

I got really lucky that it was virtually color-matched (lil off but no one could really tell), if it was white or something I'm sure it would have drove me nuts too

I'd make sure anyone who is selling one has the truck you have. I called a bunch of igits who had a S10, Ranger, and all sorts of other trucks that said theirs would fit my 2002 and asked for measurements - none fit. I even went to a guy that had an early 90's taco and that didn't fit. I had a 2000 Ranger and kept my nice shell but it was just an inch or so to short and that makes a difference. I finally found a POS one and snagged it as I was moving and needed one "right now" It actually is quite nice but I'll need to sand it completely down and repaint it. Anyway, make sure the person has your model and year before even going to check it out, otherwise you are wasting your time. (my 2 cents)
