Default 7ft. Bed Rail Caps...

Hey guys,

This may have been covered before (saw a few threads about this from a while back), however, I just picked up a '09 Ford Ranger with a 7' bed. I'm not having any luck finding 7' Bed Rail Caps. As far as I can tell no one makes them anymore.

Does anyone know if any manufacturer still produces them or if they would even be available via Ford direct?

As a last resort I'm considering taping off the bed rail and using something like Herculiner to make my own "rails".

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Looks like they only have mirror finish, still searching for the elusive plain black...

What about getting the mirrored ones and rattle canning them?

I take that back, for the price you can get line-x just on the rails.

Also, what year is your truck? The only longbed option I saw on there was for pre-92.

I have a 2009 Ranger XL with the long bed...

As far as LMC, part number 50-5138 (or 50-5148) lists "Longbed 93-10"

Reason why I want the caps is the previous owner got a few dings and nicks along the bed rails. I am getting a tonneau cover, so this may cover it up enough that rails would be a moot point.

Still considering rolling with some roll on bed liner as an option...

the factory AND aftermarket support for longbeds is total crap, almost nonexistent. Do they even make tonneau covers for the 7' bed? I've never seen one in person. In fact ive never seen a tonneau for any longbed of any brand truck

Local detail place around me has one..looks like it's a Downey SST Tonneau. Never heard of the company but owner says it'll fit.

I've also seen this one...

They have an option for both 6' and 7' beds
