    I am looking for a truck cap for a 1997 Ford F-150 Extended Cab that has a short box 6 1/2 foot.
    1997 to 2003 F-150's with Ext Cabs have the same size and style box so anything in those years would fit this '97.
    Thanks.
    I am looking to spend between $400-500.

    Yea sorry I should have specified I want a used one and am looking to pay between $400-500. Action has nice caps but more than I am willing to pay for one just to move some things around.
    I also already looked on kijiji and all I can find is 8' long box caps.

    Yeah, I did a quick search on Kijiji for you too. I found your wanted ad, but nothing that looks like it would fit properly.

    Depending on how picky you are, the box doesn't have to be an exact match. A buddy of mine owns a trucking company. He picked up a nice used cap for one of his half tons, for $500.00, and he made it work. It overhangs in the front a bit, but there is a tight seal in the back.

    I am not that picky as long as the door worked and it was sealed pretty good. But I don't know what trucks have similar dimensions to my truck anyway. I know there are lots of caps out there somewhere but I am having a really hard time finding anything.
