    Yeah the subject has already been drawn out in another thread last month and it was concluded that 1st-gens were generally 1" larger both ways than 2nd-gen...mainly caused by the "composite" bed's bulk in the second gens.

    Yeah it was started actually back on 5-3, but I gotta find what forum it was in. If I find the measurements I'll copy them here-I'll be back:)

    Just passing info on that I got from someone else. Curious EO, you looking at a good deal on a used topper or tonneau? I'm asking as I thought of keeping the topper off of my '99 but was concerned as to how it would mount to the new truck as well as the measurements. I'd had toppers on the last 3 trucks and decided to tonneau this time.
    Later

    Nope. I found a roll bar with 4 KC lights on Craigslist, and hoped it would fit. It was off of a '95 and with my '07 bed being 3" taller, I don't think it'd be worth it to try and make it fit.

    Holy crap. Have I really had this light bar for 2 years?!

    It was sold by someone and bought by me.

    Question on these dimensions. Inside of rails or outside of rails? I have an 08 and used to have a 98, but obviously I did not keep the dimensions of the 98
