Ford Truck Bed Rail Cap

Ford Truck Bed Rail Cap Issues

The bed rail of your Ford truck can sustain damage and become worn down pretty fast (especially if you use your bed a lot) if it's not protected. Fortunately, Ford truck bed rail caps exist. They may be simple equipment; yet, they greatly help in keeping your truck's rails in excellent condition. But despite their protective qualities, bed rail caps can encounter problems of their own. These are discussed below:

Loose Caps

At some point your Ford truck bed rail cap can become loose, thus rendering it useless. This is especially apparent when you're traveling at high speeds since the wind can most likely cause your bed rail cap to flap. What's the most likely reason for this, you ask? Well, it's quite obvious. Your bed rail cap may have been improperly installed or the attachment material is simply defective. Naturally, the solution to the former is to reinstall the bed rail cap. Do it correctly this time. You may have to use extra tape if your bed rail cap is affixed to your Ford truck via double-sided tape. If the latter is your problem, then you most probably have no choice but to get a new Ford truck bed rail cap.

Stains

You would think that stuff like your Ford truck bed rail cap is impervious to stains. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Stains can develop on your bed rail cap regardless of its material. This isn't surprising, though, since your bed rail cap is constantly exposed to dirt, dust, rainwater, and other road elements, after all. Yes, you can easily wipe away the said impurities with good old soap and water. However, if you don't do it in a timely manner, they'll settle on your bed rail caps and become to hard-to-remove stains. Plain soap and water can't do anything against such blemishes.

You'll need the help of a specialized cleaning agent to eliminate Ford truck bed rail cap stains. Fortunately, you won't have to look far for one as even distilled vinegar (a bottle is most likely sitting inside your cupboard) can be used in getting rid of stains. Just mix it with warm water and it can magically wash away even the toughest of stains.

  • Maintenance Tips: Ford Truck Bed Rail Cap 27 February 2013

    As you know, your Ford truck bed rail cap provides protection to your vehicle's bed rail. However, the bed rail cap also needs some loving. That's where you come in. Below are the ways in which you can take care of your Ford truck bed rail cap:


    Wash your bed rail cap from time to time.

    A bit of soap and water from time to time will do your Ford truck bed rail cap a lot of good. By doing this, you can prevent dirt, dust, and other impurities from building up. If you let all those grime sit on your bed rail cap for far too long, they can develop into pesky stains that will take more than the usual soap and water to get rid of.


    If you chose to keep putting off the cleaning of your Ford truck bed rail cap back then, there's a good chance that stains are already present on it. And as said above, plain soap and water will be ineffective against such blemishes. Fortunately, the solution to this problem still isn't that complicated. All you'll need is a specialized cleaning agent. This can come in the form of branded anti-stain products that are sold in most automotive stores or home remedies such as distilled vinegar. Don't downplay the effectiveness of the latter as it can erase most kinds of stains if mixed with warm water. Plus, using vinegar is an excellent idea since you most likely don't have to spend extra for it (a bottle may be sitting in your cupboard).


    Polish your bed rail cap regularly.

    Polishing goes a long way in preserving the sleek appearance of your Ford truck bed rail cap. What's better is that doing so shouldn't take a lot of time or effort at all. Plus, a polishing solution isn't expensive. With all of those, there's just no good reason why you shouldn't polish your bed rail cap.


    Polish your Ford truck bed rail cap every time you clean it. Begin by applying an adequate amount of polishing solution on a piece of cloth or a rag. Wipe your bed rail cap using that. Do this thoroughly and make sure to cover the entire bed rail cap.
