Excellent quality, arrived ontime, cost was very fair. In excellent condition and easy installation. My experience was a 5 star overall.

The Putco tailgate guard I received was very well made, very shiny, and surpisingly heavy, which is not bad; more a result of the gauge of the metal used. Installation is fairly easy, but since the 'U' of the guard is considerably wider than the contour of the tailgate, there is a gap of about 1/8" or more. The gauge of the metal is so thick that trying to bend the guard inwards to fit better is risky, as the edges are sharp and can cut your hands, even through some types of gloves, like the Mechanix brand that I wear when working on vehicles. Bending might also result in an uneven, wavy appearance along the edges and smooth mirror-like surfaces that would be very obvious from certain angles. I used self-adhesive weather stripping to fill the gap, but the appearance is not as 'custom' as I'd like.
