Question toyota canopy on a ranger?

hi, i was wondering if anyone out there has tried to put a canopy from a toyota short box,onto a 2001 ranger short box? i measured, and the dimentions are the same,but im wondering about the front of the canopys forward slanting angle creating clearance problems with the back of the cab (near the top of the roof on the ranger). i can buy a canopy that was on a toyota,its in really nice shape,and its priced right. any input from someone that has done this,would be great.

AFAIK, Toyota doesn't offer their own shell...ppl get them from camper shell sellers, which also sell shells for everything else. A phone call to one of these outfits will answer your questions.

im sorry i didn't respond to fast. they said to measure it,and try it first.they wouldn't commit to saying it would,or would not fit. so i bought the canopy. it isnt an exactly perfect match,its about 1 inch longer overall.so there is a slight gap at the tailgate. its very minimal though,it just helps the air circulate better! lol it looks fine on the truck.also the guy i bought it from gave me a set of quick relese roof racks for free-BONUS!

Be aware that the Ranger bed rails are not flat, they curve up in the middle a little. This may or may not affect the fit of whatever you try to install...
