I just drilled two and have had no problems. I think these drains come into play when parked facing downhill during heavy rain.

Re: OEM Tonneau Install

Is there a mod to allow easy removal of the back section in the event I need to use the full bed?

Other members replaced the bolts securing cover to the side bed rails with a clip type spring.

Allows for easy removal so you can pull off the cover.

Thanks e-p-ny. I looked at it again this afternoon and cannot visualize this clip type spring. Would HD sell something like this?

TIA

I think others use a 'D clip" instead.

Almost any hardware store, or farm supply.
