BlackTread Tailgate Protector


Dee Zee Black Tread Tailgate Protectors keep the top edge of your tailgate protected while loading cargo.


Keep That Tailgate Protected.

It happens. Sometimes you have to haul wood, pipes, or other cargo that’s a little longer than your truck bed. There’s no shame it in leaning it against the top of your tailgate- as long as you’re using a Dee Zee Tailgate Protector of course.

Constructed of Non-Rusting Brite-Tread Aluminum our tailgate protector even fits over those wimpy factory plastic covers adding another layer of rugged protection.

Protects the top edge of your truck's tailgate against damage from shifting lumber, falling debris, and even those rookie fork lift operators at the local hardware store who can’t seem to guide the darn pallet onto the back of the truck bed without clipping the top edge of your tailgate- I’m looking at you Dan!
