Protecting your truck bed is one of the best ways to keep your trade-in value high. If you want top of the line protection that will also enhance your trucks appearance, then you want a Putco stainless steel front bed cap.

Putco uses heavy duty stainless steel and designs each piece to fit your truck precisely. A Putco stainless steel front bed cap gives you maximum coverage and protection against damage like dents and scratches. These front bed rail protectors have had the edges buffed so you don't have to worry about you or anyone else getting cutting on the stainless steel. Did we mention that each front bed rail cap is polished to a mirror finish that will look great for years?

Mounting is quick and easy too. All front bed guards come with pre-applied adhesive tape that keeps things simple. In fact, pretty much anyone can install one of these bed caps in less than 15 minutes.

You owe it to yourself and your checkbook to add a Putco stainless steel front bed cap to protect and beautify your truck.

Great product, but didn't quite fit my 2010 RAM 1500 with RAMBOX

Ease of Installation
I bought this to dress up my 2010 RAM 1500 and quickly noticed that this wouldn't fit my RAMBOX equipped truck bed. The top rail was measured perfectly but the RAMBOX causes the sides to come in an additional 1/4 inch on both sides so I ultimately had to cut it to fit the side rail. Unless my Ram was manufactured to different specs, I suspect any RAMBOX equipped Dodge Ram is going to run into this issue. Both Putco and RealTruck offered great customer service, even offering to pay for the return shipment but I elected to keep it and make it work with a jig saw and some elbow grease. I thought the price point was fair especially since this is American-grade stuff, excellent quality and finish for years of use. Not your overseas garbage.
