Better Protection

I needed more coverage down the outside of my tailgate due to my canopy door hitting below where my current tailgate cap covered causing complete rub-off of the paint. The Bushwacker Tailgate Cap did the trick by extending at least an inch below the canopy door. Good quality product.

Perfect replacement for factory spoiler

I removed the factory spoiler to better fit a tailgate bike rack and this did a great job of protecting the tailgate. I had to push it down really tight and it barely covered a couple of the holes but it's on there super tight and it looks nice. I had about an 1/8" gap on both sides. I also had to trim about 1/2" off the backside to work with my spray in liner. It's been great so far.

Be sure to follow installation instructions!!

Be sure to follow installation instructions. The adhesive is very sticky and will be destroyed if it is not applied in the recommended manner. I will have to order another so that I can reinstall the tailgate cap. Not happy about that issue, but my fault. Will be re-ordering shortly.

Awesome product, easy to install, make sure you have where you want it because once you stick it , it will not come off easily. The material is very thick and the finish is great. Outstanding product

Tailgate cap saves the day

I purchased a 2010 Ford Ranger ,It had very low mileage and it was in nice shape but had a dent in the top of the tailgate ,I didn't want to repaint that tailgate so choosing this Bushwacker ultimate smooth back tailgate cap covered that and give the truck a very nice appearance.

Works great

I needed this to allow my camper shell door to close all the way. It works good. I saw some reviews and a youtube video about it not completely covering the factory holes in the tailgate but mine just barely does. Don't know if they updated the part or if the others' didn't quite get it all the way on, but it works fine for me. I probably would be fine if it didn't quite cover the holes also as it looked minimal and I would have put some black RTV over the holes. Thanks!

Looks great, nice compliment to my Toyota Tacoma, a little tough to install, fits so tight that it's hard to get it proper position when you have the adhesive exposed on the ends. Then the tape is hard to get out without it breaking , I can't see anyone without any mechanical experience installing it properly.

A Classy Look!

It's great! Installed easily & completely covers any scratches and dings on the "working edge" of my tailgate. Not at all wimpy - but heavy duty. Excellent value, too... what's not to like?
