Know Your Truck Bed Style

The first thing to consider when shopping for truck accessories is what truck style you're driving. Depending on the products you're looking for, this may be an extremely important piece of information. There are four main styles of truck beds and cabs out there:

Types of Truck Beds

Once you know what kind of truck you have, the next step is to measure the bed length.

Measure Your Truck Bed Length

Truck Bed Length MeasurementYour truck bed length is determined by the distance between the inside of your tailgate and the inside of the bulkhead. When you measure truck bed length you may find that the exact number does not match any lengths listed on our product pages. That's because most truck and accessory companies round off their measurements to the nearest half-foot. So, if your truck bed measures 76", you can go with the product listed for a 6.5-foot bed.



Bed Lengths by Make and Model

So you got out the tape measure and now you have the length of your bed in inches. Now what? Find your truck’s make and model in the guide below and match up your measurement with the advertised length and name of your particular truck bed.

Remember: your tape measure may be at a slight angle which could alter the measurement you end up with. It’s best to think of your measurement as an approximation, and match it up with the nearest bed length. Measurements can also vary from body style to body style.
