Are there supposed to be drain holes at the front of the bed?

    I back into my driveway (the neighbors park in the street and it's almost impossible to back out of mine when they do) and it rained last night. When I back in, the rear of the truck is a little higher than the front and I now have a small water feature in the back of my truck. If there are drains, it's possible that the spray in liner, or some debris, clogged them. I can't do a search without pulling the toolbox, and I'd rather avoid that. Thanks for any help and advice.

    Seems mine is the same, my Taco had drain holes. It goes at the seam, not much space, couple fall days with some leaves and it will be a bathtub.

    The drain holes are small gaps about an inch wide between the floor and bulkhead. I think there are 5 or 6 of them and they almost always get closed up when a liner is sprayed in.

    Everything. Literally.
    Mines got drain holes with tubes that go from the seam at the far end of the bed up to the last panel of my bakflip. I’m not sure how functional it is, but it’s there. Kinda weird.

    You can always drill a few holes. One on either side and one in the middle in the low ribs, 1/4" would be plenty. A little touch up paint around the inside of the hole and some spray undercoating from underneath should prevent any rust.

    Mine are a couple of coin slot shaped openings at the front of the box. They're easily plugged with detritus.
