Eh I’m not happy with that. I thought it would look like this but it doesn’t. Image

Are they not suppose to get close to the tailgate where the white part is?

No it always stops there. Better for putting a seal kit in there. Sticks to paint much better than the liner. I see there do have a logo in there...must have stuck it on then lined over it.

Seal kit? Yeah my liner looks different than the one posted. I guess different places spray it different. Still the premium though

Yes....a seal kit to seal off the tailgate gaps. Mainly if you use a cover, the tailgate would still allow water in.

What is different between the two pictured? I am not seeing it.

So I need a seal kit if I get a tonneau cover? The difference is the badging in the two pics. Mine is part of the liner and his seems to be a badge or something.

Oh. Yeah ok. Thought you were talking about the stopping point on the bed by the tailgate.

You dont have to get a seal kit but it helps keep water out. And dirt/dust.

I like how they did yours. Looks cool.

There are a number of different ones. Most are universal but work well. I chose this one since it had more than just the seal for the tailgate...also came with foam blocks for the open holes under the bed rails by the stake pockets to help cut down on dust too.
