What are the body capping options / differences?

I'm starting to plan a few repairs I need to do over the next couple years, and pretty high on the list is new body capping. The driver side still looks fine, but the passenger side needs to be replaced. And, of course, the NAS parts are no longer available.

What are the other options that I have for this? What was different in the NAS parts anyway, compared to the stuff available now?

If it just has a couple bad places you can patch it with some good bits from another rusted out one. This is what Cgalpin and I are/have done.

Almost all of ROW ones will have the part that juts in where the bulkhead behind the seat is.

Mine's got too many big areas rotted out. So either way I'm going to have to piece together a full one.

The truck was originally a soft top, now a wagon, and still has the rear corner supports for the safari cage. That's what really caused a lot of my problems in the back.

Well, I was able to dig up what I THINK are the non-bulkhead part numbers AMN710160 and AMN710170. Now, I just need to find the damn things somewhere.

Last time I was at George's warehouse at RDS. He had a lot of new and also a lot of slightly used cappings. I was able to find enough to do on my doublecab 110 and I was able to get some for the rear corners which vary depending on the tail light configuration.

I'll have to give George a ring. I just need the top capping, corners are fine.
