Factory bed caps dirt traps?
I work at a coal fired powerplant lots of fine dust fine mud. Our shop pickup is a '10 F150. When we wash it, there is always lots of dirt under the factory bedrail /tailgate caps. It seems we never get it all out, no fenderwell liners. It looks like a great place for rust to start.
I have an '11 F250 on order,and I wanted to remove the caps and spray bedliner over the bedrails/tailgate to eliminate a place for the dirt/miosture to hide. The 2 vendors I talked to don't want to do this, as there are many goodsized holes that the caps clip into, making "soft", unsupported, spots in the srayon bedliner.
Has anyone noticed dirt/moisture accumulating under the factory caps?
Has anyone removed the factory caps, what did you do?
I live in southeast Montana, there aren't a lot of choices among vendors, so "just go someplace else" is a pretty limited option, the nearest major bedliner vendors are 90 to 300 miles away. Thanks, Pete
