    Put about 3 good dents along the top part of my tailgate. Backed into a tree...but had no choice lol. Anyways I'm trying to find ways of covering it. Anybody have tailgate caps like these : http://www.autoanything.com/bed-caps-rails/60A5828A0A0A1813444.aspx

    Only thing I'm worried about it the cap not extending down far enough to cover the dents. Anybody have these caps? Or have any other ideas?

    Here's a pic of the dents...look worse in person

    can you not reach them and tap them back out? When I got my rhino lining, the company that sprayed it popped out a few dents along the top of the tailgate by removing the panel on the inside of the tailgate and pounded them out. I have not tried this myself so I don't know how difficult that would be, or how it looks without a liner on top of it.
