plastic bed rail covers shrinking?
haven't been in for a while how ya all doin? i got a question about my plastic bed rail covers. I started noticing this winter that my bed rail covers started to pop up and there is a nice gap forming from the rear going forward. i am wondering if this is shrinkage from cheap plastic covers or just the cold. If it is cheap plastic is there a way i can remove them without hurting the paint and get some real good rail covers on? any advice is much appreciated.

I have the plastic factory bed rail caps on mine and after I installed the tonneau cover the heat build up in the bed made them buckle, I'm thinking about removing them and having the Line-x extended over the bed rails instead. You can see how bad it's getting in the pic, in my signature pic they are straight.

I think Adam has the best solution. The rail covers would have to be pretty thick to withstand really cold conditions.Morgan
