The bed will bolt up but 11+ trucks have different body lines so it won't look right. 99-10 are the same with 08+ having newer taillights and tailgate.

You should be able to convert your front axle by removing the spacer. The rear axle is wider by 2" per side but the 10.5 found in SRW trucks will bolt in.

Does anyone have a picture of an older SD with a 2011 bed? I was told that the wheel well looked different but the body line at the bottom matches up with the older body line. Would love to see a pic of new bed on old body to see how it looks. There's lots of 2011 take offs around. Or does anyone have an 8' SRW bed in harvest gold for sale??? LOL
