The diamond plate rail caps and tailgate caps I ordered really improved the look of my truck. The first ones they sent me were not the right ones for my truck although they had the year and model. However, there was no problem in getting the right ones, just a little inconvenience and patience.
Verry good quality

This part I ordered was perfect for my Dodge Ram 150. First one I received was damaged and call and emailed customer service and got 100% satisfaction in receiving the new part 24 hours later and they took the damaged part at the same time. I will definitely buy from this company again and again for all my truck needs.
Perfect Addition to my Ram 2500

They send me the wrong cap.The one that I received you have to drill holes to install.plus my tailgate have about a 5 inch over hang that have 4 screws holding it on. If I use the cap that I received u will be able to see the 4 holes.
