    Greetings people of TW,

    I have 2 questions.

    1. Would these clamps work for a topper? If not, what would you recommend?

    2. Is there any differences between 2013 and 2008 as far as the bed sizes go? The topper im looking at was on a 2013.

    Thank you,

    No difference in bed sizes.

    Those looks like the clamps I have on my 2015 wearing a 2005 camper. They work just fine.

    What brand of topper? They use different clamps per the different brands. Bed size is the same within the different configurations (short bed, long bed).

    If it's a long bed, be aware that the regular cab (2 door) caps are different than the access/double cab caps. The contour of the rear of the cab is different causing different fitment.
