Default Tailgate Cap

Is anyone aware of a really good quality tailgate cap, metal preferred, for my 2012 Longhorn Dually? I ordered what I thought was a good one from a DeeZee dealer only to receive one that doesn't even cover the entire top of the tailgate. The top of the tailgate under the cheap warping plastic OEM cap is open to the inside of the tailgate. I would like a black anodized aluminum or high quality plastic with diamond plate preferred, but will consider any nice option. Thanks for responding.

Well, I figured out that when the prior owner had the spray in bed liner installed, the cap was removed, which broke off some of the attachment nibs, causing the factory cap to flap around at speed. I went to the dealer and paid 42 bucks and got a new cap, along with the plastic rivet studs and within 5 minutes after cleaning the dirt off the painted tailgate...GOOD AS NEW! Thanks for the help DRF

a lot of money for a strip of plastic, but not to bad since it is a ram only part.

Mine is broke too and I have tried using double sided tape and glue to hold it down. I guess off to my local dealer to get a replacement.
