Default Bed rail dimensions

Hey all, I frequent the D21 Hardbody forums and would like your help on measuring the width and length of your bed rail Since there are no official aftermarket bed rail caps for the D21, I was hoping ones from the first gen Frontier will fit.
Someone said that the tailgate from a Frontier fits into a Hardbody so I'm crossing my fingers for even more compatibility. Thanks in advance if anyone can make this happen

Extended cab hardbody bed rail is 76" long and 2 1/2" wide. Standard cab hardbody bed rail is 75" long and 2 1/2" wide.

It just occured to me that you probably wanted frontier bed rail measurements lol.

Ok, I measured my 03 crew cab long bed frontier. The bed rails are 76" long and around 2 1/2" wide. The one noticeable difference is that the frontier bed rail has much more curve to it. The hardbody bed rail is flat.

Two very key pieces of information! Thank you, alabama_lowlife! I tried looking for pictures of the frontiers rail but couldn't find any, would you mind taking a picture of yours to see? Since you have both models to compare, do you think a frontier rail cap would fit into a hardbody?

It would fit if it was made of a material that could be flattened out. Like aluminum tread plate.

I have these on my '95 Hardbody extended cab. They're a little wide so hang out a touch. To me worth it for the protection and black ABS. Length is perfect.
