Canopy on a Stepside

I am wanting to put a canopy on my 92 Stepside. I know there is a special canopy made for these that forms to the back of the cab, but is there another that will fit???

Re: Canopy on a Stepside

You might have better luck in the 88-98 section.

But if I were you, I'd get some measurements (width and length) then see if any of the mid size or mini trucks match, then go from there.

Re: Canopy on a Stepside

By canopy, do you mean a truck topper?

Re: Topper for Stepside

I have seen them, but it's been a while. It's possible to lurk thru some of the people who made/sold them, like Leer, Century and so forth. There are other mfr's, depending on where you live...in some cases.

This company will make what ever you want.

But they are not the smooth fiber glass painted ones.

Re: Topper for Stepside

Go to a canopy dealer. They will have catalogs to order from. Due to age, will probably have to be special order.

Man, you stuck your hand in the poo bucket and pulled out a rose. I never seem to have luck like that. Good on you.
