    Description

    Give your tailgate top a clean look that keeps your paint fresh and scratch-free. The Putco Tailgate Cap is custom-made to fit over your gate, stopping everyday gouges and dings from ruining the look of your truck.

    Beyond protection, the Putco Tailgate Cap outfits your truck with limited edition looks. The smooth stainless steel is polished to a mirror-like finish rivaling the brilliance of chrome.

    Installing the Putco Tailgate Cap takes only a few minutes, with no need for dangerous cutting. Minor drilling or bolting may be required. Just mount the Tailgate Cap with the self-tapping screws and you're done.

    Whether paired with matching Putco Bed Caps or installed alone, this tailgate guard provides great looks and value-saving paint preservation. Your Putco Tailgate Guard boasts a Lifetime Warranty.

    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.

    Reviewed by michael H (Calabasas, CA) — Jun 11, 2012 12:10 PM

    It fit horribly out of the box. 3/8 to 1/2 inch gap between tailgate and cap. I had to reform with considerable effort and then only fit adequately after I tore off the plastic cap, which was not in the instructions. Very disappointed and really how hard can it be the make a cap that fits the F150? There a gizzilion of them. Now that it is on, looks OK, but would not do it again. In hind sight I should have just gone to ford and got a new plastic cap to replace the scratched one...

    The curve in the cover does not fit the tailgate. The curve in the tailgate is more round than the bend in the cover. The cover therefore does not fit tight on the outside edge of the tailgate.

    Everything about the cap is perfect,, except it has a gap between the face of the tailgate more than there needs to be. If it had of been folded a little tighter it would have been a tighter fit with less gap.
