    There are no used ones out there! It came as a short-bed extended cab or long-bed standard cab. Norm S -the only thing different about an 08 and later year Superduty is if you have that pull out step in the tailgate.

    Tom Zizzo, a journalist, has also spent many years selling truck and SUV accessories. Given the overwhelming number of questions I have received about used camper shells, I thought it might be useful to write a little guide to buying used tops.

    First I'll tell you a few things to watch out for, and then I'll break down the major changes in truck bed dimensions for different makes in the last few decades. A used top, selling for far below what it cost new, sounds like a great deal.

    But just be aware of a few things to consider before you buy. Keep in mind that if major parts of the top you are looking at are broken, you need to look into the price of replacing those parts before you take advantage of that "deal of the century. In the photo above, the glass is coming away from the frame leaving a big gap.

    This part of the window should be sealed. I saw the top above for sale on Craigslist. The ad says it came off a Ranger, and it now sits on a S I can tell this is an old SnugTop—by the ridge in the roofline—and it probably came off a pre-'93 Ranger. The dimensions though are close enough. A dead giveaway is if the top is not the same color as the truck. Here is some information, broken out by make, about which years had which body styles.

    It will help you know what to expect when you shop for a used top to match your truck bed. This was initially only done to the F line; the F and F heavy duty trucks remained the same until , when Ford introduced the Superduty. The F changed its body style and bed again in except that in the F Heritage Edition, the bed and body are the same as the '97 to truck.

    If your truck has it, the shell door will need to compensate for it. Leer and SnugTop shells have special molded pieces on the bottom of the door to account for it. The F has gone through some changes, mainly the rear, and the bow to the tailgate area that most of the new trucks have now. If you look at the back end of the new F's, you'll notice that the bow to the rear tailgate area is wider, and angled, in a way. Overall the bed looks the same from the previous generation, but this wider rear bow will most certainly affect top compatibility.

    It pretty much remained the same, with the exception of adding a pull-out tailgate step in , which is technically an option.

    This is important because tops on or newer Superdutys will have rear doors that can accommodate this step, that is if the truck has the option. If you try to put a top from a , for example, on a that has the step in the tailgate, it's not going to fit over that bulge. Yes, most top manufacturers can change out that rear door, but beware, those rear doors are NOT cheap.

    The only footnote has to do with the step in the tailgate see above. It wasn't until that Ford made in major changes to the Superduty-most notably, the rear tailgate that has that octagon shape to it. Ford Rangers have been around since , and stayed the same all the way up to Rangers haven't changed much since , except that the flareside bed, also referred to as the Ranger Splash bed, is different.
