  • Multiple pieces are designed to surround and protect all vertical and horizontal surfaces of your pickup truck bed walls and tailgate
  • Aluminum construction provides high strength and freedom from corrosion
  • Stylish diamond tread pattern is available in polished bright aluminum or powder coat finish

  • Limited lifetime manufacturer warranty
  • Proudly manufactured in the United States

If you carry heavy objects, sharp-edged debris, branches, and other equipment in your pickup truck bed area regularly, it doesn't take much to leave scratches and gouges in your bed's factory paint. And if you have ever tossed heavy items or debris into the bed, you know it only takes a small miscalculation to bounce something off the bed rail area and leave a permanent dent. Dee Zee offers a stylish solution to all these problems with Diamond Tread Protection pieces for the side areas and tops of your pickup bed walls. All pieces are crafted from high-strength aluminum and textured with a diamond tread pattern that looks every bit as rugged as they actually are.

Not only will Diamond Tread Protection pieces save the walls of your truck from dents, scratches and the elements, the aluminum panels will remain free of damage themselves and continue to look good while they serve you long into the future. Should you choose protection for the inner wall of your tailgate panel, you'll have a flat hard surface that can be used as a work bench. Protect the tops of your left and right side bed rail tops with Side Bed Caps and you'll never have to worry about resting long items such as lumber against them again. Dee Zee proudly manufactures all Diamond Tread pickup bed pieces in the United States and to ensure your satisfaction, everything is backed with a limited lifetime warranty against defects or corrosion.

Since 1977, Iowa-based Dee Zee® has sought to create products and accessories for trucks and SUVs with class-leading levels of style, quality, and longevity. Their success and growth in the marketplace has always been fueled by listening to what customers want, then building the things competitors did not offer. Dee Zee believes that it is extremely important to be environmentally aware and views efficient manufacturing to minimize pollution and waste as a corporate responsibility. That philosophy goes hand in hand with fundamental beliefs that a product which effectively resists corrosion represents a better value for the customer - giving it a longer useful lifespan instead of becoming more junk in a landfill. Our website is proud to offer the Dee Zee product you've seen on this page as well as the company's complete lineup of running boards, grille guards, tool boxes, bed protectors, mud flaps, liquid transfer tanks, cargo carriers, and much more.

DeeZee Bed Rails
Awesome product and quick shipping. Packaging from the company shipping out could be more rigid. First set was bent but CARiD was awesome! Got in chat with a rep, sent pics of item, new ones shipped in less than 12 hours. Killer support love them. Great follow up and very useful application tools. 10 stars on support and follow up.

Nice But Could Be Better
This is a decent product. Pretty darn thin though. One corner was bent while in transit but I was able to bend back and luckily it's not easily seen. CARiD was fantastic with with speedy shipping.

The caps are made of aluminum and not from plastic. They look shiny and are a beautiful addition to my truck.

Didn't Fit
I have a dodge 1500 Laramie. This cap didn't work for my tailgate. It fits the top, but doesn't cover the factory clips in my tailgate. If you have a Laramie don't buy these. Standard tailgates will work fine.

Install on 2016 Ram
Material is a little thinner than expected and they have two holes on each instead of one like the picture implies. They sit kind of awkward on the stock plastic rails with only one strip of double sided tape. I myself picked up some heavy duty trim tape and added two more strips then removed the stock covers and saved them. The bright tread caps fit nicely except for the two holes by the cab show from under the tool box that I installed. With a couple sets of stake pocket anchors I won't even need to bolt them down.
