Look at the bottom of the shell at the front of the shell [by the cab ] there may be a lip hanging down that hits the bed keepin it from going all the way forward .

I had to trim mine off and pushed the shell forward enough to close the gap at the back, [ gained about 1/2-3/4"]. And ended up looking "EXACT FIT"

Might work......

Well the lip goes alllll the way around the back so a roto zip or a very steady sawzall will have to possibry work

I looked at it yesterday and it was there. Everything looked good except for the janky aftermarket brake light that was installed on the inside. Was gonna be 500 plus the clamps. I go back today he said someone bought it last night but we have this silver one right here for just $200 dollars more. You guys know the deal. I wasn't about to pay that kind of money to a weasel like that so I passed.

BUT.


I am going to look at this one tonight
http://bakersfield.craigslist.org/pts/4317820783.html

Other than the slider on the front and the color, I love it. But I can live with those, especially the color as I can always paint it later. Plus i like that it's already tinted.

Man these seem so pricey. First shell I bought was like $250 then paid $200 to have it painted,
