Question What are these?

What's up guys?


Just got a quick question and was hoping someone might have some insight!


I've been doing some searching, but I can't seem to figure out what exactly these are, or moreso what they are named/would be referred to as, and more importantly if they are available. Just from searching OEM Ford part sites, it doesn't look like they are something you can buy/replace.











I'm sure I could get some vinyl and do something custom myself that would be similar, but I'm really curious if anybody knows if these are available, or may be available for another Ford truck, or possibly a universal design that's available.

If anybody has info on these I would appreciate any insight!

Great suggestion and I agree. I’ve tried that along with other variations similar with no luck.

They're pieces of urethane tape to keep the panel edges from getting sandblasted and peeling. I've never seen a name or part number for them, the tape comes in a roll and you cut off what you need.

clear vinyl that protects against stone chips. Start paying attention you'll see most cars have them. Usually just called "stone guard" "protector" etc. Usually can order it pre-cut from the dealer but older stuff you'll just need to make it yourself.

Thanks for the insight! I actually need black because Iím using it to cover up the rust where the original use to be. If you look at the last pic look at the bottom of the one too the right, and youíll see what Iím talking about.


I appreciate all the feedback, I didnít think I would manage to find the exact OE ďpartĒ, but I figured Iíd ask. Iím just gonna DIY it and cut some tape/vinyl to shape.

You could just buy a roll of 6" or 12" protective tape. If you need it in black you could use the adhesive step tread that they use on vans and running boards. It holds up to the elements and is pliable.

Go on ebay and search for black 3m vinyl. It probably won't stick too well over rust, and will be a little lumpy, but if you just want to cover it up then go for it.
