Anything from 93 to present will fit. If you buy brand new it will run about $1000. I suggest craigslist and find one that you can have repainted if it does not already match. Installing is easy, just some clamps or hooks.

Good luck for finding one for 1000.00! I priced them out several months ago and they started at 1500.00 and went up from there

A lot of retailers sell used ones too. Go to the web sites for the cap makers and look up dealers/distributors in your area. Lear is one of them but there are others. I think ARE is another brand. Fiberglass will be more expensive than aluminum and they look nicer but it depends on what you are going for.

That is what some of the local places charge, just before paint.

looks good!! i'm glad you got a flat top cap instead of one of those wedge angled roof looking caps. paint should be cheap, take it by your local maaco or body shop. did you get the keys to the locks with yours?
