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.

exellent qualtity and fit

I had to modify it a bit due to my ordering the wrong one. I have the shorter tailgate (splash) and the one I ordered is for the regular gate. It was easy to modify nonetheless.

Nice addition to my old Ranger

Works great to cover scratched tailgate top on my 1996 Ranger. Fits perfectly. Easy enough to install, but I did enlist help from frinds so we could align it and press down firmly over the entire length. Instead of pulling all the tape cover strips off before install, we left the lower tape strip cover on, just pulled the ends loose, the when the cover was in place, we pulled the tape cover strip out. That seemed to be an easy way to keep from sticking before we were lined up and ready.

Fits Perfectly!

After having a camper shell installed on my 08 Ford Ranger I found myself just lifting the back glass on the cover to put things like groceries in the back of the truck. I was looking for something to protect the lip of the truck tailgate and that was not too big or thick so the back glass would still close properly. This tailgate cap does just that. It is very easy and quick to install. Set it in place first to see where it centers before removing the strip on the installation tape. Follow the directions and it will take you about 10 minutes.

No real complaints. Worth the price. It could be just a little longer, to cover more of the tailgate. Overall, a good buy.

Not completely satisfied

Upon receiving my tailgate cap I immediately brought it indoors. After 2 days of being indoors and having my truck parked in a heated garage I applied the tailgate cap. I followed manufacturers directions and prepared the surface. I left the vehicle indoors in a heated garage for 24 hours. The next day I used the truck and noticed that the double sided tape was lifting. I removed the tailgate cap and applied new double sided tape that I purchased from home depot and re-installed the cap. All seems good now. I contacted Bushwacker and asked them for a replacement cap as I explained the problem and thought their double sided tape was defective. They apparantly denied my claim as they have not answered my latest emails

Nice Product

The BushWacker tailgate cap was an excellent fit on my 2008 Ranger XLT. It was bit difficult for me to center exactly on the tailgate, but with a little work I was finally able to get it positioned at less than an 1/8" off exact center. Probably from my lack of skill than a product issue. Fits nicely under my topper rear hatch.
