I don't see why not. Cap size varies on box size, and has nothing to do with the cab, so I would think it should fit...

If I recall correctly, one of them slopes more at the back of the cab than the other.

You are thinking of regular cab vs access/double. The Regular cab has the different rear angling compared to the others, which makes them mostly incompatible (it might fit, but you will get bad rubbing).

As for access and db - if you have a double cab long bed (what the rest of the industry calls a "short" bed), then yes, a cap off an access cab will work; I know, because over this weekend i bought a cap (ARE CX model) off an access cab, and installed it on my Db lb (fits like a glove, aside for the color.. )

Thanks for clearing that up. I knew the cabs were different with 2 of the models, I thought it was the AC and DC. Good to know
