Black Metal side rail/tailgate caps

Has anybody found these for the ranger? I'm looking at my buddies' ones on his 2500HD they are Dee Zee, but they dont seem to make them in that configuration for the ranger. All i can find is stainless.

I would really like metal, anyone ever had em painted? or know of a brand that has them in metal with a black finish preferably diamond plate style?

Thanks

I used DeeZee Diamond Plate Side/Tailgate Caps on my ’88 but that was a long time ago.
My EDGE came with OEM Caps, my Steppie came with OEM Caps… how about JY run for Bed/Tailgate Caps ?

If all else fails, not the same thing… but I used JC Whitney’s Rubber Caps and they worked ok; very flexible, easy put on. protected the paint but not sure if they would stand up on a work truck.
