47-55.1 bed/cab measurement needed

Sorry guys, Iíve search and canít find the answer. Iím setting the bed on my 50. I need to know the distance from the cab wind line (Iím not sure about the terminology, Iím talking about the little crease line that runs parallel under the back glass) to the top of the bed. See pic. Also, how much space is between the bed and the cab?

Mine measures 9.5" where you have the tape in your photo.

The gap from the cab to the bed is 1" at the center of the cab.

FWIW my truck has all new bed wood support blocks and rubber, and the cab mounts are all new too and I'm using a stock GM frame.
