Default Rail cap glue on or spray on?

I want to mount a canopy on the truck but they scratch the h..ll out of the paint. Protecting the rails and tailgate seem like a reasonable solution. The bed already has spray on bed liner but doesn't cover the rails. So....

Anybody use the glue on plastic bed rail caps?

If so what brand? Are you happy with the way they look and hold up?

Anybody come back later and spray the rails with bed liner? If so, howd it look?

I already bought Bushwacker caps but have not received them yet. The reviews looked good. I could probably get spray on for about the same amount of money.

if i were you i would tape off and use a roll on bed liner, it would probably last long and grip better to both the canopy and the truck rails. i didnt like my plastic ones, they dont stick good and with some heat they tend to flare a little
