I'll tell you what my friend. These are some great photos and they're exactly are what I was looking for and looking at all of them is answering a lot of the questions that I had but I have some other questions that the photos can't answer.

First off, what's you name? I'm Ron

The first 10 photos show the horizontal surface of the rail with the oval cut out for the plastic "boot" that wraps around the bottom end of the roll bar.
Then you have some pics showing the "Hinge Pocket" (where the hinge assembly attaches to", a bolt and the small "Front Half Mounting Bracket. There is another piece called the "Frame Cross Member" which you don't show in your photos.
Your last 3 photos show the vertical surface of the rail.
What I need to know is this. When the rail is bolted into place on the inside of the bed, is the vertical surface of the rail right up against the inside vertical surface of the bed or is there a small space between them?
The inside vertical surface of the bed, just below the bottom of the roll bar, has that rounded and tapered area that bulges out from the flat surface so I have been assuming that the vertical surface of the rail can't possibly sit flat against the in side of the bed.
If there is a space or gap between the vertical surface of the rail and the inside vertical surface of the bed, is there any other part that supports the rail and keeps it from being pushed into the bed or is the metal thick enough to prevent that?
I'll have some more questions later but I'll start with these for now.
Damn, those are good pictures. You took all of them looking straight on with the camera rather than at an angle which is important... especially the ones with the ruler in the photos for scale. Now I see that there's a good chance I'll be able to install the cover if I can get all the dimensions that are important but this is a good start.
I managed to get the installation instructions from SnugTop as a PDF file but that was the only information that they had. They couldn't tell me anything else about this specific model. They said they had no other information about it.
I attached some drawings and photos from the install instructions. I tried to attach the whole PDF file but this web sight doesn't allow it for some reason.
I'll need a bunch of measurements but I'll ask you about those after you answer the other questions above.
BTW, I think I might be getting close to locating a source for the large rubber seals that fit around the base of the roll bars. Are you looking for those?
