The Bushwacker SmoothBack Tailgate Cap has an easy 3M tape-on installation that takes minutes to install. Make sure it is over 60°F for proper adhesion. Simply prepare the area by cleaning with rubbing alcohol. Line up the cap to your tailgate to ensure it fits correctly. Once you have verified fitment remove the red tape on the underside of the cap and press down firmly onto your tailgate for about 30 seconds. Call us toll-free if further assistance is needed.
