My friend had a 2001 ram 1500 short bed with a tonneau cover on it. I took it off his hands for nothing and decided to try to make it work on my 2005 ram. Now, it had to be shortened anyway, but since I have a toolbox, I had to shorten it even more. A lot of people say it doesn't work, but I got it done! It's a bit of a tighter fix, but it works perfectly. Here is a pic!
