The quality of the skins are great. I'm not pleased with the fit. The edges of the skins aren't flush with the sides of the box like the photo. They are sharp and hazardous. I will be taking them off due to the fit and for safety.

I had a different brand on my half tin that was nit available for my current truck so I went with the Putco's. Easy to install, very good shine. The cut on the outer edge is wavy and the rounded edge on the back look like they crimped it down with pliers to get the bend. I'm not that happy with the overall look.

I actually sent back another brand of rail caps and ordered Putco rail caps after installing Putco fender trims. Just like the fender trim, the bed rail caps are of superior quality, fit, and finish. I have also ordered a Putco tailgate cap that I'm confident will also be superior to any brand available for my 88 GMC Sierra long bed. Just spent 5K to repaint the truck and camper shell and these Putco parts really highlight that job.

The Putco bed skins are easy to install, are highly polished, and look good from a distance. However the stamping and therefore the fit is not as good as it was in 1999 when I put them on my last new truck. Not really worth the price.

I'm very satisfied with Auto Anything Accessories and mostly satisfied the Putco product. The stainless steel pickup bed caps and matching tailgate cap arrived quickly with no packaging damage. However one bed cap had a dent in it. All the edges were sharp (had to wear gloves) and required sanding with 220 emery cloth. The bed caps fit perfectly and installation was easy. The tailgate cap was a little loose for the thickness of the tailgate. This was resolved by adding a faucet washer under the cap at each of the four screws. The mirror polished surface was restored by wiping with acetone. The product gave my truck exactly the look I wanted.

These were apparently damaged in shipping so its hard to tell, I think the box was dropped on its end and that bent the ends in which made the ends not fit well and the holes in the stake pockets off.

HI, I HAVE A 1994 CHEVY SPORT SIDE P/U WITH SOME RUST PROBLEMS ON THE SIDE OF THE BED RAILS. MY QUESTION IS WHAT IS THE MEASUREMENT ON THESE BED CAPS. HOW MUCH DO THEY COVER ON THE SIDE??? DO THEY GO TO THE SEAM WHERE THE RAIL ATTACHES TO THE BED. THANKS CARL
