Bed differences (for shells)

I am in the eternal search for a used shell for my 2002 F350 cc lb drw.

Are the 150's the same size bed? Will chevy or dodge 8 ft shells fit?

I'm not sure that the 150s had a 8ft bed like your long bed has. I'm also not sure but I'd venture a guess that drw and srw beds are both capable of having the same canopy/shell.

Hmmm... Ok..then what about chevy and dodge 8 ft beds.

I am looking for a used shell (new ones are too much $$) and I can not find any for a 350 with a long bed...

I would just watch craigslist. That is how I found mine, just be patient. Mine was within a mile of my work and the same color...

If you paint it yourself you should be able to get out of it for less than $100.

My wife goes to pick up mine tonight. its a black fiberglass one and only cost me $50.00 because the lift window on the back was broken, so they replaced it with plexiglass... Pheeewt who cares about that, a cap for my truck for only $50.00, my truck is dark green, i dont care that the cap is black...
