I have no connection with this at all. Looks really good so I thought I would point it out.

So is it 25 or 26-27 or are they all the same?

Appears to be a '27 as the front stake pockets are set back and no, they are all not the same - '25 is a "one year only".

Thanks Steve. The add is a bit confusing about that. So if stake pockets are even with end of bed its a 25? In the front.

25 has rear fender mounts that take a fender iron. This later bed mounts the 26-27 fenders directly to the box..

Apparently, sometime in 1926, it was noticed that one couldn't lower the top if one had sideboards thus by moving the stake pocket rearward a determined amount, side boards & lowering the top was achievable - that's my story & I'm sticking to it !

1925 & 1926 boxes have forward pockets.

Are the 1927-27 Rds fenders the same as pickup?

I just rebuilt a box for my '25 RPU, all I could find was the later box, with the front posts moved back. Thus, I got to learn about these boxes while doing what I could to fit it to my '25. The mounting rails are wider apart for the "improved" car. They are only 32.5" on the '25. I was able to get these rails from Langs and drill out/remove the later rails. I also made the side mounting brackets so now have a hybrid bed. As has been pointed out, the later bed with the stake pockets moved back, is more room to fit stakes. Factory RPU's were not fitted with the top irons that hold the top in the down position, as it just sits on the bed.

The only parts that are the same as a 1925 for 26-27 is the tailgate, and the battery access door. Even the bed strips are different, with a convex center. Steve Jelf posted a photo of these a few weeks ago.
