4 Holes in the Tailgate?

I've decided on a Jason tonneau for my 06 quad cab short box but the spoiler is removed to allow installation reviling the holes that held in on and the only solution that appears out there is a strip of black plastic to cover. I don't want a black strip there detracting from the clean lines and matching light khaki paint to the truck.

1st MOD. Weather Tech Matts front and back

I agree on the black tailgate protector not looking good, but if you check on having the holes filled and the tailgate repainted you learn to live with it. At least I have.

Most places that sell tonneau covers sell the plastic filler plugs. They are little round headed plastic buttons. They snap into the holes where the bolts used to go. Some guys just paint match them as well.

BAK makes a tailgate cap just for this, and it is paintable. I have them available on my website. I installed one on my truck so I could put the Undercover on. You really don't notice it with that tonneau cover. On thing you can do, check your salvage yards for a late model truck without the spoiler. Not all of them had the spoiler on them. Look specifically for the SXT models...

Good idea. Just drive around and find a truck the same color as yours without the spoiler. Ask the owner if he wants to trade tailgates. He is getting the spoiler for free so why not. Takes about 30 seconds to change the tailgate.
