ok, it`s just confusing when I measure my bed length with the width of the tailgate I have about 4" to play with. I`m not sure where the back of the cap is suppose it sit.

i have always had caps, the rubber strip on the bottom of the cap rear window has always sat at the outer edge of the top of the tailgate to keep weather out. i have not put one my 11 and have not seen how they fit with the rounded top of our tailgate.

Ok it depends on what type of cap it is. Leer ARE. The glass sits on top of the front of the tailgate. Flat spot. The snug top has a molded piece of fiberglass that contoures the tailgate.

Default bed caps

Having agreed to buy a used cap many years ago for another truck, I discovered that it was way off being a good fit. If you have the opportunity to do so, I'd highly recommend that you ask for a trial fit. That flared tailgate edge is very important, if it doesn't match up exactly, go with a new one. I bought a new ARE for my '11 quad cab for approximately $1100. No problems whatsoever.

Well that's about an average price ARE dealers charge down here in SC.
Factory matched color and fit from your VIN number including installation.
Took about 2 weeks for delivery to the dealer. Ordered mine from
Travelier Truck Accessories in Piedmont, SC (near Greenville, SC off I-85.)
This was my 3rd one as I've traded trucks over the years and never had a problem. Tinted windows, sliding/screened sides (didn't order front sliding), interior lighting and braking light all standard. Thing I like best is that water doesn't pour down on me when I raise the back window. A good quality topper value for the money, no fade, no leaks, no cracking and very secure locking. Will last as long as a new truck will.

That is a fantastic price. Even if it doesnt include install, bring a buddy and DIY, they arent that heavy.

Those run $2500 to 3k up here in Washington for similar specs.
