Probaly, I'm thinking since I'm going to put a bed liner on it any way, I'll probaly touch it up and see if I can get some bed rails, my old truck has black plastic things around the bed and tail gate, I'm guessing those are bed rails

personally when i get the bedrail caps i'd like to get the bushwacker "dimondback" caps... there are other's out there that are less expensive too though.

My only question is will the bed rails affect the fact that I have a tool box on it? Oh yea the passengerside rail is bent slightly. I'll post pics ASAP, hopefully picking it up on Tuesday

Quick Question would Bend rail work on my truck with the tool box? If you Look on the Passengers side towards the back, the side of the bed is bent.


(P.S. the black out is because i got them off the dealers site, My cameras broken, ill get better pics when i get use of another camera)

As far as I know , it will not because the bed takes up the whole rail . A friend got a tonneau cover for his and had it cut to fit his bed . I have a tonneau also on mine .

i think the tool box will acctuly sit on top of the rail, (the ones im looking at are the flat ones) im just wondering with the bed of the truck bent slightly will the rails still go on it? or because of the bend will they not fit? ill take some better pictures when i get a camera i can use

With the top rail of the bed bent like that, I don't think a rail or cap would fit properly. to protect the metal, touch-up paint if you're patient, DIY bedliner if you're not. Either way I'd look into fixing the bend before throwing any serious money at it. Personally, I prefer a professional spray-in liner.

i am a college student so money tight, i was considering doing a do it your self roll in bed liner and going up on the edge of the bed where a topper or tunnel cover or rails would sit. Thats where the paint is worn down to the medal, im just wonder how would that look with out a topper or anything on it? The bed of the truck is actualy still pretty well covered by the factory paint.
