Bed rail caps

I am looking for some bedrail caps for my 81 short bed. Does anyone know if they make plastic ones instead of the diamond plate? Thanks

Re: Bed rail caps

yes they do
i just went thru this looking for smooth stainless caps for my crew. the alum checkerplate was making a mess of the rails on my canopy, even with the fat foam stuck in there, and they need constant polishing....
i looked at a whole wack of places online, can't remember where, most had checkerplate or plastic ones.
this is where i got my stainless, but they have plastic too

Matt , let me know how these look if you order . I have wanted to add vinyl ones to my 82 but could not find them . Did not want the metal either .

Dawg , Thanks for sharing . Is this the only vinyl ones you have seen ?

Re: Bed rail caps

For now I just sprayed some bedliner where my toolbox mounts. But I am interested in the vinyl ones dawg posted.

Don't want to hijack but I am looking for the same thing, except for a stepside.
