It should fit but some of the body lines may be different. I believe rangers have a slightly taller cab than the old s10.

yeah, width is probably close enough. you might just be sure the length is gonna match. it should, but sure would be a nuisance if it didn't seal on the tailgate!

Thats why i try to get the more info i can because its almost a 2:00 hrs drive to get-it, so a little bit lower is not that bad but like you said if its too long...i can deal with an inch but more than that, it will be a pain in the ...!

If i can get it for the right price, it look pretty good! ..and i will maybe get the truck with the cap...

can the dude measure it for you? i guess it's like a craigslist deal?
just have him measure the outside/front to outside/back so you can compare with your bed, if he's willing!

----------

or you can skim some s10 forums to get a feel for the bed lengths offered. you might pin that one pictured at ~6ft, which is probably what yours is, right?

99 % sure they sit a little lower than the cab. But width an length are close to perfect.

I can deal with less then 2 or 3 inch. It will just make the future roof rack more level with the rest of the truck , less drag!

I hate to deal with people who want to sell something but don't answer their message...

Get a cap made for the ranger.
I'd personally regret getting something not meant for my truck.
Google any site that sells caps or truck bed sizes and compare.

If you been looking for a cap going on 4 years and still haven't found one....then you really must not need one.
A late model Ranger deserves a new cap and not some poor fitting S-10 cap.
