    I was on craigslist, just looking what people have put up in the auto section and I came across a post of someone selling a fiberglass camper shell for $100. So I was like :eek:. He didn't leave a number and when I click onto the reply to:____ link it brings up the Apple mail application and pretty much I need Yahoo Mail Plus, which is $20 a year. Not bad, but still. So is there any way I can contact him other than YMP? Also, the dimensions for the topper are: 60" wide X 76" long X 20" high. He said it came off a 1990 Tacoma. I just went out and measured it and all the dimenions were off by a little more or less of half an inch. So would it stay on securely? Also, I still have the factory plastic bed cover, and I don't see how it would clamp on. Any help is appreciated. :)

    i had a fiberglass topper on my 93 pre taco 4x4.... just used c clamps. well... for the front at least... my dad had the brilliant (not really) idea of drilling a hole through the top of the bed rail and bolting the thing down. lol :eek:

    Oh so I came off a 1990 Toyota Pickup. Got it. But what I dont understand is that with the plastic factory "bed liner" its just straight down, and doesnt have a lip like my dads chevy. There is nothing for the C-clamp to hold onto.
