There is a leer cap for sale locally, model 122 in the right color for
my truck(89 gmc k3500 longbed ex-cab). It's off a 1988 dodge
longbed. The dimensions are 71.5 x 100 according to the guy selling
it. I went out and measured and the length seems right on, it's a
little wide, within an inch anyway. Has anyone ever used a cap off of
one brand truck on another? Just curious before I go and do a test
fit b/c it's almost an hour away. I've been looking for just this
model for a while and haven't seen a single one for sale near me for a
chevy. Supposed to go look at it this afternoon, so any input is
My only experience was with a Toyota pickup, years ago....
Great deal on a 2 year old cap from same model truck, 2 years newer....
everything fit but the back of the cab, it was a different angle and would have
required too much modification to fit mine..
If the cap isn't too old, you might be able to get specs and fit from Leer..
Please remove splinters before emailing
Thanks for all the replies guys, this one doesn't look too angled
toward the cab, so i might be ok. Yeah looks are not a huge concern
here, i figure it's gonna overhang 1/2-3/4 of an inch on either side
of the bed, but to be honest i can live with that. If anyone else has
any other comments post em up, not going for a few more hours. Glad
to hear someone else has moved one from truck to truck.
For posterity, the cap did not fit. The front was a perfect fit,
length was right on, but in the back it didn't taper at all, so it was
so much wider that it wouldn't even stay up on the rails but kept
sliding down the bed sides on both sides. Knew I had a 50/50 shot
going in, so back to hounding craigslist :-) Thanks again to all who
