Shell Spec Question? Please Help

I'm in the prototyping stage of a product that uses the factory tacoma bedrail system. I want to make sure the product will work with all trucks, including those with shells. For those of you with shells I am looking for a few measurements.



I have a Snugtop Supersport Shell and both X and Y are roughly 1/4". If those with shells wouldn't mind taking 2 minutes to take those 2 measurements and post them along with the shell manufacturer it would be a great help. The more brands and models the better: ARE, LEER, VISION, etc....

If the diagram is confusing im looking for the distance the shell overhangs the bedrail. Heres a picture of my snugtop shell lip and the bedrail.



I no LEER for example has a much greater overhang then my snugtop. A little help would be amazing, I no a lot of you have shells.

Thank you, please let me know if the diagram isn't clear enough.

Matt

Yes the front would be very helpful, my snugtop supersport lip nearest the cab (front) doesn't hang over.

Thank you everyone for the help, i'll take all the info I can get. Hope the diagram isn't to hard to understand. The product is currently top secret, but as soon as I'm past the prototype stage everyone on taco world will be the first to see it.

It doesn't protrude into the bed hardly at all, like <1/16". But it sits above the rail by about a half inch.
Y= 1/2"
X=<1/16"

Sorry OP , I got sidetracked

Here is the front overhang on my Leer 100RCC , it comes down to the top of the bed rail and overhangs it by approx 1/2"

2012 Snugtop Rebel - not straight

My 2012 Snugtop Rebel uses the rail system for mounting. The shell has bulges in 3 places on each side and a bolt/clip goes through the shell into the rail system. I don't have carpet headliner so you can see it well.

Any clues on what this prototype is?
