The Best Truck Bed Caps
Videos & Sounds

Truck beds can store and deliver pretty much anything—from pets to camping gear, hay to home appliances. The rails of your truck bed are designed to take a beating, but over time, deep scratches and paint flakes can make a tough truck look tired. Bed caps for trucks provide a barrier for the ins and outs of truck living.

Let’s not forget about the tailgate. Here we have the exit and entry for much of what you haul. A favorite for this area of protections is the EGR tailgate cap, which provides the same level of security to your tailgate as the other three sides of your bed.

Shopping Tips for Your New Bed Caps

When shopping for your new bed caps, look for the following:

  • Custom-made specifically for your year, make and model

  • Stainless steel or ABS construction

  • Easy, no-drill installation, preferably with sticky adhesive tape

  • Included hardware

  • Lifetime Warranty

Installation Tips For Hitting the Road in No Time

Getting sticky with it! Since bed caps are secured with double-sided 3M automotive tape, full adhesion is necessary for a successful install. One side of the tape will be installed on the cap already. Always wash and dry the truck bed rails thoroughly, then swipe with rubbing alcohol. Finally stick the caps on and go. We also have loads of bed caps reviews on our site, be sure to check them out.
