The shipping was fast as usual,to begin with.The rails were in perfect condition,but after opening and looking at the parts,I wasn't sure that they were going to fit because the stake pocket covers on my Titan's factory bed liner were 2"x3",and the "expander"that goes down into the stake pocket was only 1.5"x2" and,being a thick solid piece of rubber,I couldn't possibly see how it would work.(This is my first truck,so I'd never installed rails before.)After talking with Autoanything & Putco,and being told they'd fit,I went on and cut out the stake pocket covers,I saw that the actual stake pockets were smaller than the holes in the bed liner.I was about to return them for a different brand,but I'm glad I "risked" it and took their word for it.They look great and I love the tie downs on all four end pieces.One problem though-on Titans,if you have a factory bed liner,set the black gasket over the stake pocket cover and notice that the gasket doesn't cover the pocket covers completely.I used a box cutter but I left the corners of the stake pocket covers so you won't have four small openings-one at each corner of each pocket cover.But don't worry if you ignore this step-if water gets in them,the bed will not get wet < for tonneau cover owners.Also,if your'e a first timer like me,the tonneau cover does not need to be touched.Be very careful with the box cutter-I put a few unwanted slices in my bed liner.Overall,the rails look terrific!and installed in about 20-25min.I hope this helps bed rail vigins like me.Steve - Sandy Springs,Ga.
