    Hi,
    Newbie Question Alert!

    I'm thinking of buying a 2nd hand topper from a 1994 Tacoma for my 2004. Does anyone know if the years are compatible?
    Thanks!

    It might go on, but it will not match up. They are a different shape and size.

    I think 2001, but not positive.

    Guess I'm wrong. I thought it was changed in 2001, but maybe it was just a face lift.

    so there's a chance this 1994 might fit right? I've already messed up my bedrails and tailgate by putting the wrong cap on my beloved truck... I want the right thing now and I'm on a really limited budget, so...

    No - it won't fit 'right'. As already mentioned, the bed dimensions are different between 1989 - 1995 PreTacos and 1995.5 - 2004 Tacomas.

    Also - as already mentioned - it would be better if you locate a cap / canopy / shell designed for an XtraCab.
