When it comes to carrying cargo, it doesn’t get much better than your truck bed. Transporting everything from work tools and sports equipment to camping gear and home appliances, your pick-up’s cargo space offers the ultimate utility. While the rails of your truck bed are designed to take a beating, deep scratches and paint flakes can make your rugged truck look tired over time. Add a barrier of protection that’s worthy of your tough truck with durable bed caps from the assortment available at AutoAnything.
Plastic vs. Metal
Loading and unloading your truck bed takes a toll on your exterior — and that’s no more noticeable than those scratched-up bed rails. AutoAnything offers an impressive array of truck bed rail caps in materials that range from high-impact ABS plastic to heavy-duty stainless steel, so you can easily find the best pick-up truck bed caps for your rugged ride. While both materials offer the custom-fit strength to durably defend your bed rails, the answer to this plastic vs. metal debate is all about aesthetics. Matte-black plastic truck bed caps like Bushwacker’s Ultimate OE Style BedRail Caps offer you that fresh-from-the-factory look, while Dee Zee aluminum bed caps are a great way to add head-turning, chromed-out style to your truck’s exterior. Plus, they complement that Brite-Tread toolbox perfectly.
Let’s not forget the finishing touch to your truck bed upgrade — a sharp-looking tailgate cap. Provide the same level of security to your tailgate as to the other sides of your truck bed with one of our top-quality tailgate caps that also come in an array of materials. Some models are even equipped with LED lighting so you can light up the night in style.
Tips to Keep in Mind When Shopping for Bed Caps
When shopping for your new bed caps, look for the following:
- While most bed caps on the market today mount easily with 3M adhesive tape, there are options that may require drilling or cutting into your truck bed. To ensure easy installation, look for caps that are custom-made specifically for your year, make and model.
- Depending on how you use your truck bed on a daily basis, some bed caps can limit your access to your stake hole pockets. If you frequently mount truck racks to your ride, make sure your bed caps can accommodate additional accessories.
- As fashionable as they are functional, bed caps are a perfect way to take your truck bed from scraped and scratched to sleek and stylish. So, choose matte-black plastic caps for a more understated, OEM-look or go for stainless steel bed caps for an eye-catching upgrade.
