Beyond protection, the Putco Tailgate Cap outfits your truck with limited edition looks. The smooth stainless steel is polished to a mirror-like finish rivaling the brilliance of chrome.

Whether paired with matching Putco Bed Caps or installed alone, this tailgate guard provides great looks and value-saving paint preservation. Your Putco Tailgate Guard boasts a Lifetime Warranty.

Notes:
  • For newer model Chevrolet/GMC trucks with the large GM Boss tailgate cap, the Putco Tailgate Cap reaches lower to cover the bolt holes left in your tailgate after removing the Boss cap.
  • The Putco Tailgate Cap covers only the top rail section of your tailgate. The pictured matching bed rail caps are Putco Skins Bed Caps, available in our Bed Caps and Bed Rails section.

Excellent product for pictures on the Internet need side views because you don't really know how well it's going to cover the inside part of the tailgate

Another great looking Putco product!

The original plastic tailgate cap was looking bad from ten years of use and sun in Florida. The new Putco cap looks great and installed in half hour. We will see how long it lasts?

It is not long enough on the outside edge. Takes about an hour of working on it to get it to fit right. Needs improvement.

Initially durable, looks great, breeze to install

Need some time to see how the finish holds up, but so far the thing seems great. Much more durable and better looking than the factory plastic cap.

tailgate protector

I put this tailgate protector on my 71 Chevy pickup. My tailgate had a slight bow in it but the protector followed the contour just fine. I scribed a line on both sides and used electrical tape to protect the paint and help fill the gap.(two or three rows). You have to tweak them a little to make them fit snug. They are a little pricey but I suppose you get what you pay for. All in all a good product that really dressed up the back of my Chevy. Thanks Ray.

F150 tail gate cap - Putco

It fit horribly out of the box. 3/8 to 1/2 inch gap between tailgate and cap. I had to reform with considerable effort and then only fit adequately after I tore off the plastic cap, which was not in the instructions. Very disappointed and really how hard can it be the make a cap that fits the F150? There a gizzilion of them. Now that it is on, looks OK, but would not do it again. In hind sight I should have just gone to ford and got a new plastic cap to replace the scratched one...

Don't Fit Well.

The curve in the cover does not fit the tailgate. The curve in the tailgate is more round than the bend in the cover. The cover therefore does not fit tight on the outside edge of the tailgate.

tailgate cap doesn't fit snug to the face of the tail gate

Everything about the cap is perfect,, except it has a gap between the face of the tailgate more than there needs to be. If it had of been folded a little tighter it would have been a tighter fit with less gap.

Putco Stainless Steel Tailgate Cap

The fit and finish of this product is excellent. I installed mine with 3M automotive tape rather than the stainless steel screws that came with it. It looks awesome on my Ford Ranger Sport. The perfect end for my sprayed in bed liner.
