    One end of the tailgate cap looks as if it was gnawed to length by a beaver, and the whole thing has a slight curve so that the ends want to lift up. Otherwise, as advertised.
    Nice tailgate Cap

    The cap is great once it is installed. But be VERY careful about installing. The tape cannot be separated from the tailgate and re-applied. Start from one end and peel the tape back as you go, per the instructions.

    the cap looks great - the reason for the four stars in the install bracket is that you have to be a little careful as the glue strips are really good. I put wax paper up under the outside of all my strips just to cover the glue strips prior to pealing off the glue tape. worked great
