    Hey Guys - can anyone give a recommendation for weatherstripping to seal the truck bed with a tonneau on top? I can see a gap on the sides where the tailgate closes and was going to add some weather stripping to hopefully better weatherproof it back there. Thanks in advance!

    This is what I did. The weather strip is from Homey D and the sheet rubber on the gate is some 1/16 thick that I had laying around, 1/8 might work better. The duct tape is gone, this was the prototype. I attached the sheet rubber with Go2Goo, I think that's what it's called.

    Check out Access Trail Seal. It's inexpensive, easy to apply and it works.

    It's been on for about 5 years and has held up very well. As long as the surface is clean and warm it goes on easy and should be just fine.
