    I’m seeing a few here and there, but not sure what fits my 03 Tahoe! Some are advertised as 66’ wide, some at 63 or 63 1/2.

    I measured the width of the mounting holes in my Tahoe and it’s aprox 63 ish. But some claim they’ll all fit the Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Yukon XL. Some sellers aren’t sure what model they fit, they just say 2000-2006.

    Aren’t the ends spring loaded? And if so, how much do they compress?

    Is a suburban or Yukon wider inside? I know suburban and Yukon xl would be LONGER...but wider?

    Does anyone here have one in their 03-ish Tahoe that they can measure?

    The covers for the short trucks are definitely different than the long ones.

    The mounting points are in different locations. You don't want the 66 inch one.

    As long as the measurements are correct, the 63 1/2” should for your tahoe. Make sure you take some pics!

    Cover came today. No Go!
    Doesn't fit. The measurement he gave me was for the compressed size. It's actually 66", compresses down a couple of inches to snap in.
    I need 63" uncompressed, so from there it compresses a couple of inches to snap in.
