    It should 95.5 to 04 is a gen 1 truck

    Now in the later years of the gen 1 trucks there were two bed sizes, ie the double cab trucks were only available with a short box, and the regular and xtra-cab trucks had the long box, but other than that I think you should be able to interchange without a problem.

    05-current is a gen 2 truck.

    Yes a change, but not the bed.

    The early Tacos came out in 3 distinct styles: 95.5-97, 98-00 and 01-04, but I don't believe the beds ever changed.
