seller said it fit on the following midsize trucks:
-a dakota
-a toyota p/u
-a nissan p/u

I don't really know what a mid-size truck is, but do those trucks seem similar sized?

man...I just spent another $130 for front wheel bearings/hardware kits/seals...now a roll bar?

hobbies are such money pits, lol

btw...telemaster, you are really a tough one to reason with...the last time you said go, I ended up with a brush guard hahaha...

the posting expired, but I'm talking to the guy via. email, so I can still get it...I'm probably meeting him this saturday...

otherwise, I measured the truck's bed and...

-from the outside of the left side to the outside of the right side, it's ~61"
-from the inside of the left side to the inside of the right side, it's ~53"
-from the bottom of the bed to the height of the cab, it's ~37"

So I think it'll just fit, height-wise, but I'm not sure about width or depth.

What is it supposed to bolt to? Do I have to drill through the dura liner and the bed?

PA is a little far...it's ~$200 worth of gas plus I'd have to try and squeeze it all into Sunday...for that much, I could probably buy a newer roll bar

seems to wide.... go out and measure from the inside of the bedwalls and thatll be what you need to know....

unless it bolts to the top of the bed rails then it might work.....

I have to stop spending money on mods, and save up for a tacoma.

this is the last mod (that I can always re-sell to get money back on)...I promise

it's not bolted in yet, but move it forward a little bit and that's pretty much what it'll look like...
