    Hello,
    I tried searching prior to this post with no real answer....so here is my question.
    What is a good cheap mod for making my tail gate cap a non slick surface....this for my dog who slips when she jumps up into the bed and either her paws are wet or the tail gate it's self is wet.
    Thanks in advance,

    I'd probably unbolt the OEM fiberglass tailgate cover, and then get bolt or rivet some rubber mat to it, then reinstall the cover.

    Or maybe even a portable step for her to use.

    The best thing I could tell you is put some bed liner on your tail gate, or your whole bed that will give him a ruff service like I did my interior of my jeep. Just used one box.09241016231.jpg 09261016381.jpg 09261019361.jpg

    They have also got spray cans, which one can would do just your tail gate, if that's all you want to do. Got this stuff at O'Reilly Auto.
