Thanks for the link, they just make pre-made existing model sizes.
There is nothing on CL that I will inquire about today.

I said that...

But its all just basic aluminum channel with aluminum sided foam for the panels. Would be relatively easy to make.

It looks so much better with the new to me inner fenders that I don't care as much about hiding it now.
I would like something that kept it dry inside, that is why I mentioned a wagon top, but that is just another major project.
Since the weather got better I have not even drove this truck, I would rather drive the 521 kingcab, but I always had it covered because the windshield gasket leaks, need to fix that issue while it is dry outside.

Yes I know you mentioned that about the covers, I was just more or less being clear about why I was not chasing that, they are kinda expensive also, but I would not have an issue with that if I could order it by size.
My box inner dimensions are 69"L X 53"W, but I want the cover to be 72"L X 56"W, the reason is to try and keep the rain/water out of the inside of the box instead of it just sitting inside under the cover rusting everything.
