Cap fit question

Will a 6'4" cap off a 3rd generation fit a 4th generation? Who has done this and do you have any pics? I'm looking for a used cap for my 2011 and can't find one in a 3 state search but I have found a few that will fit up to 2008. Whats the difference? Thanks in advance for any help!

I don’t believe it will there are some bed differences on some trucks. I bought my 3rd gen cap off a guy that bought a 4th gen for this very reason. Don’t quote me on this not 100%.

Besides the body lines possibly being different, the bed may be shorter. My son has a 15 QC and his bed is shorter then my 3rd gen QC. He has more room behind the back seats. Not sure what version you have but that could be a problem. He had a BigHorn.

Short story...3rd gen QC has more bed room...4th gen QC has more cab room... you will need a different cap.

3rd Gen QC short bed is the same interior dimensions as 4th Gen QC. Reason I know is that the bedrug is the same stock number for 3rd & 4th gen. Put the exact same bedrug in both my old 3rd gen and my new 4th gen.

Now, do not know if there is a difference in the top rails of the bed that would affect cap fitment between the two gens.
