    Was there a plug for the holes next to hook ? I have a tonneau cover and drive a lot of dirt roads and seem to get a lot of dust in box. I have a tailgate gasket already. Dust seems to be coming from those holes.

    Thanks that's what I thinking but wasn't sure since I didn't buy it new. I guess I'll just need to figure out ways to plug everything off.

    Just remember that what you plug for dust will also stop water from draining.

    Yeah when I first bought the truck used I noticed the spray in liner had covered the drain holes in the front of box. I spent some time cleaning them out. I am unsure if there's more then just the front drain holes are more in the bottom of the bed.

    Fill all and seal the tailgate. You can have a mobile pool until rust makes new drain holes.

    I say, phooey. Now if you have a rubber ducky...

    Not a bad idea. I could use the mobile pool at RAGBRAI and charge a buck a piece for people to dip their tired sweaty bodies into it for five minutes at a time. Heck I could pay this thing off in a day. Well, maybe it would take me the whole week.!

    I have a tailgate seal. and I've dict taped over all the holes.
    Big improvement, but I still get some dust.
