I believe that it WILL physically fit ,
but the mounting holes will need to be modified ,
and the body lines will be different.

You can make it work,though!

body lines are different, mounting holes are different, the 2000 bed will be wider than the 86. you can make it fit but it wont look good.

are you sure he's not talking about a topper? if so, it should work. i had a gen1-2 tonneau cover on my gen 3. wasn't quite perfect, but close enough to work.

Not sure since the bed body style is so different. Not that it helps you but I have found that a cap from a '98 does indeed fit a '11. Same bed lines.

Now, if the cap is an aluminum one, then I would think you would be ok since the fit on them is so generic to begin with.
