Not what I expected

This is a nice piece of metal but not what I was expecting. First, the top is L shaped not U as depicted in the picture. I had lost my factory plastic tailgate cover and was looking to replace it with the same. I then came across this and decided that a whole TG protector would be better than just the cap. This product is designed to be installed over that factory cap because now I have a gap between the tailgate and the protector. No option to order black. Would not recommend.

Installation was easy and fast. Fit is perfect and the holes line up with existing bolts. My only complaint is that it does not fully wrap around the cap and I will probably use a sealant at the top. Looks nice and will protect the tailgate.

Very Nice Prouct

The product arrived in just a few days but was slightly bent upon opening the box. I am not whining here but the two ears (ends) were bent although they were easily re- bent back straight. The box (loosly wrapped cardboard with two plstic straps)contained no papers or fasteners. Perhaps since the installation was so straight forward there was no need for literature and the fasteners were common screws. Since I have been away from home over the Christmas and New Years holiday I have yet to see any fasteners. I assume the fasteners shipped. Overall the product was as expected and shipping was prompt.

Great product, fits perfectly on my Tundra. Could use a few more places to attach. Used 6 sheetmetal screws in addition to securely fasten. Will hopefully save my tailgate from really falling apart.

Mounted easily and offers some additional strength for the wimpy 08 Tundra tailgate. I had already torn up two plastic top caps, so the protector helps this part survive and offers some additional rigidity for the tailgate. It's a big piece of shiny aluminum, however, I would have preferred it to be black anodized (but then it would show scratches).

I run an electrical service truck and carry a 1 man lift in the bed of the truck. I was in need of protecting my tailgate from being bent when ever I pulled the 1200 lb lift off to use. With a little reinforcement under the plate (12x12x3/16" steel plate) it handles the job great. It helps to hide the reinforcememt plate and provides a smooth transition from bed to tailgate plus the diamond plating adds grip to the surface when walking on it. It will prevent me from replacing this tailgate several times from removing and loading the lift. A new taigate costs 600$, plus paint, plus installation I called to see about this option and it's no comparison. The ease of installation had most of the factory screw holes line up with the plates making it so I was able to install and not have to pay someone else to do it. Overall this item is well worth the cost which is reasonable and it looks great.
