    hey guys

    i have been hearing mixed reports about toppers and how they fit on the different body styles. i was wondering if any knew if topper/camper shell fits differently on a reg or a double cab????
    im in the market for one since im going to be transfering up to kodiak, ak soon and there is one for sale on cl and i was hoping that it would fit my truck.
    anyone have any input it would be much appreciated.
    this is wat im looking at>>>http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/pts/2828975090.html

    i have a long bed so the length isnt the problem i was just wondering about the fit of the shell against the back of the cab?

    No, you will have a significant gap if you put a cap for a regular cab onto a double or cab and 1/2.

    I tried to do it the other way (i.e. cab and a 1/2 cap onto a regular cab Tacoma) and the cap sat almost 2 inches off the end of the bed for the top of the cap to not hit the top back of the cab. So I would expect you to have 2+ inches of additional gap compared to the small gap you would have if you put the correct cap on.

    I had an issue with they people who sold me my topper they ordered the wrong one that was ment for a access cab or double cab and it did not fit at all so I'm pretty sure the regular cab topper won't fit very good because our cabs are more straight up and down as were yours has a slight curve
