    Does any company still make a bed shell for our trucks ?

    I have my dog out with me ALOT, she's well behaved on rides, but she is a pretty big dog, and rather than having her sit on the passenger side bucket seat in my truck (at all kinds of risk) I would like to put a windowless shell on the bed for her to have the bed as her own area. I like the windowless ones the best as far as looks, but I honestly don't know if I'm going to be able to be picky about style anymore reagrding ANYTHING with this truck. I s*ck at looking for things on the net, so I thought I would ask other people that might know first. The cheaper the better obviously, but I'll spend what I have to on my dog. Anyone know ?
    Thanks

    You may have to go custom. Which is a great thing. Find yourself a used shell. I've picked up 2 of them off craigslist for $50.00 each before. I did one for my Nissan and 1 for my ford. Get as close to your truck as you can. do some measuring, a couple cut off wheels, some mat and resin and make you a topper.

    If it fits the bed rails but is a hair to long, then section it, glass it back together and go on your merry way. Try to find a quality fiberglass one. They will mostly hold their shape because they were made in a mold w/ a chopper gun. So if you cut it a part it doesn't spring out of shape. Then after you do all your sectioning glass back into one piece. Try to find one that is too big, because it is easier to remove a section then it is to try and build a section
