This tailgate cap fit my truck perfectly and took no more than 10 minutes to install. It has a great finish just a bit darker than i was expecting but overall it seems to be great quality.

It is not long enough on the outside edge. Takes about an hour of working on it to get it to fit right. Needs improvement.

Need some time to see how the finish holds up, but so far the thing seems great. Much more durable and better looking than the factory plastic cap.

I put this tailgate protector on my 71 Chevy pickup. My tailgate had a slight bow in it but the protector followed the contour just fine. I scribed a line on both sides and used electrical tape to protect the paint and help fill the gap.(two or three rows). You have to tweak them a little to make them fit snug. They are a little pricey but I suppose you get what you pay for. All in all a good product that really dressed up the back of my Chevy. Thanks Ray.
