Hey I have a 2021 5th gen longed dually I'm looking for a used shell for it. I've tried Facebook car-parts.com and general Google search. Does anyone have any suggestions where I can look? Not sure if I can ask this but if anyone has one for sale contact me.

I think you and I have the only long-beds in the state. I also think you might be looking for a while. Shells for 8' beds are uncommon, I just put a tonneau on mine.

Around here it's the opposite. I found a short bed LEER 100XR. When we (me, seller and friend) taking it from his hanging storage cradle to the truck, one of the hanging cables hit a side glass and broke it. I traded my tonneau cover even for it and the seller and I agreed to $200 from him to cover the broken window. The $$ was on the money, but the glass is sold as a whole assembly. Not bad for $200, BUT it's been on back order for 2 months and no word on when it will be filled. I went to the dealer and they talked directly to LEER and there is an "aftermarket" name that "should" fit and it is 2 weeks out. LEER won't UPS or FEDEX the glass because they usually get broken. They will ship it with the dealers order.

So long story short, don't buy a used one thinking to just get a replacement glass. Oh yeah, the curved rear window, you might as well buy new so they say.

Yes, but he is looking for a camper shell for a "long bed". Those aren't so easy to come by, at least in these parts. Here, everyone puts a shell on their short bed. Long beds are usually reserved for farm work and no one puts shell on a farm truck.

Yeah, I would put a tonneau cover on but I have a transfer transfer tank in the back that rises above the bed rails.

I bought mine new for a SRW long bed, crew cab, 2500. They are the same as the ones for the 3500 Dually. Finding a new one was tough, used is impossible. Mine is a Range Rider Vista, cost was about $3,000 CDN with color match paint, U.S. cost would be $2,100.
