Factory plastic bedrails/bedcaps.. ??

Im not exactly sure what they are called.. but i think someone here might just know what im talking about.

I see a few older rangers ... 05ish models and older with these plastic caps on the side of the beds. They are about 2 inches tall... kinda tapered.

Im curious WTF these are actually called, lol and where i can get some!

Thanks for the help!

I think they would look good on the Sport model trucks, shame they discontinued them

They look like butt! Was so glad mine didn't have them. I would have made the dealer take them off.

They came factory on all xlt+ 01-02 Short bed fleet side rangers and were an option in the following years. They are garbage and tacky as hell. I took mine off on the way home from the dealer and they already scratched the paint. I through them in the shed at my parents house and I am sure they are still there, 8 years later.

I had them and liked them. But then when I got my tonneau I had to get rid of them, they really scratch up the paint bad and some moron stripped before I owned the truck stripped out the screws in all of them so I had to use an ez-out on all of them.

I don't like those chrome bars they have on the beds of some Rangers nowadays. Looks like a chromed handicap bar in public restrooms. And it screams JCWhitney~ized.

It would look good but you better plan on NEVER taking them off... that would be horrific on the paint... I just painted mine w/ krylon fusion... it's holding up great
