Truck cap question

All-

Anyone know what years of truck caps are interchangeable with the 2005 short bed Quad cab? I am in need of one and can't seem to find a good resource for what will fit if I buy used. Is it 2002-2008? I found a great deal on a 1996, but don't think it will work! Anyone certain?

Many thanks-
Busa

Unfortunately, the 1990's style covers will not work. Fitment will be off.
2002 -2008 is your best bet.

This is what I have on my 2005.

Are you looking for a tonneau cover or a bed cap like I have pictured? A lot of old "Caps" may functionally work and but will look fairly evident you didn't buy one designed for your truck. If you can live with the crappy appearance your good deal is at least worth a fit check.

Tonneau covers you definitely need your generation like others have said.
