New member, new F150 in transit to dealer. Truck should land any day, a 2011 Screw 5.0L 4 x 4 w/ 5.5 bed. Are the bed dimensions the same for 2009+ as 2008 and prior, more specifically will a cap from a 2008 or prior fit the 2009-2011? I read some reviews when the 2009 came out and know the frames and cabs of the Screws were stretched 6 inches, but does anyone know for sure if the bed dimensions are changed and are the caps interchangeable? I found a cap that a guy has off a 2008 F150 with a 5.5 bed and wondering if it will fit.
Looking forward to getting the new truck, it will be the family "car" to replace a 2007 Toyota Sequoia. We found a truck suited us better than a SUV, and the wife has never liked the pillowy ride of the Sequoia and **** poor brakes. The toyota has been reliable, but looking forward to getting another F150. The last ford truck I had was a 1992 F150 which I bought new and sold in 2004.
Will post new truck pics when we get it, hopefully withing the next week or so.
Thanks for the info Bondo. I will be sure to purchase a cap manufactured to fit the 2009+ trucks. I plan to wait till I own the truck, but stumbled upon a used one for sale for a decent price. Will investigate further and be sure the cap fits before laying down any coin. The owner of the cap states it fits 2008+, but I need to fine out exactly what year truck it came off of.
It would appear based on what everyone else has said that the EXTERIOR dimensions of the bed are different. However the INTERIOR dimensions are the same. So as already said, the BedRug fits 04-11 same part#. Tonneau covers such as the BackFlip, Peragon, Solid Fold, etc that do not encapsulate the entire outer dimensions of the bed, are also interchangable from 04-11. However, solid fiberglass tonneaus that wrap the bed and caps certainly appear to be different part#s.
even though the outside bed rail dimensions are the different, are the inside bed rail dimensions different as well?
Will a top-mount tonneau cover meant for an 09-10 fit an 04-08 of the same bed length?
If the dimensions work out, does the tailgate fit work, and will the underside mounting work as well!
I know, lots of questions, but my local TSC has one on clearance for an 09-10 and mine is an 06.
