I bought this hoping I could remove the original top tail gate protection. Original was plastic and this diamond plate did not cover the complete top of the tail gate. It will prevent items from snagging the original plastic.

It is a piece of junk. It will not protect anything. The material is so thin it isn't worth buying...

The protecor came very fast.Dodge hase a cheep cover on top of the tailgate.The DeeZee plate comes right over the top of it and helps hold the standered plate on.As well as protecting the tail gate itself.Product is a thin plate,but looks good.I don't think it would last long if you were halling Gravel or something heavy.
