Hi,
I bought a used bed cap for my pro 4x. It fits nicely except that it is made for a regular tailgate cap. My truck has a tailgate cap with a spoiler. Most people as well as the manufacturer tells me to change to a regular cap.
Apart from the fact that it seems like a rather delicate job I kinda like the spoiler with the tonneau cover that I also have. Does anyone have an idea other than replacing the tailgate cap.
I've posted pictures, the last one is where I would attempt to cut and the fit a new seal.

Just go ahead and replace it. It's fairly soft plastic and scrapes up easily, sticking out like that it
will also have trouble shedding water at the interface.

I believe Wade makes one you can get for $35-$40.

Did you ever find anything satisfactory for a replacement? I actually don't like the little spoiler and would rather have a regular tailgate cap.

Thanks for this post. Just got a 2016 fronty and put a 2011 cap and same issue. I wasn't sure if the tailgate cover snapped on or was just on with double sided tape.

Before I buy one, wondering if anyone can confirm that the 2005-2014 tailgate cap will fit on a 2015+? I'm assuming it would but you never know...
