A bit surprised at the fit and finish of the product. The insert sites "proudly" on top of the tailgate and was a bit disappointed that the included hardware wasn't exactly the match I was expecting. The OEM screws that hold the removable panel down are 3/4" Torx black coated screws that would fit essentially flush with the OEM insert. What comes in the kit are 2 inch stainless socket head / washers that while they are "flush" or slightly below the lip of the mounting holes, are a bit of an eye-sore and at least for me, detract from the look of the insert. Screw insert covers should have been provided with the unit as these open holes will collect dirt/water and they are a bit sharp on the knees if you happen to press you knee into them. For a few cents (Ok. Maybe a few dollars) more you could have powder coated the screws, made them flush torx or even just plain Phillips head screws and provided some caps to close off those holes. The insert is also a bit heavier than expected and as such it has the affect of slightly over powering the tailgate snubber system to slow the tailgate when opening. Used to be a soft landing if left to its own, not it is a definite "clang" as it bottoms out when opened so no longer self assisted for opening. The idea of the insert is nice and while I'm not bowled over by it, it seems that it will do the intended job of making a flat surface on the tailgate. If I had to do it over again, I might pass on this one. Time will tell.
