    New guy question. What are you guys doing for bedcover drain holes? Do I use the holes that are in the bed already or drill holes in the plastic plugs that are in the lower corners of the front of the bed?

    I didn't use the drain hoses on my MX4. I think typically if you use them, you drill a hole in the rubber plug in the front of the bed.

    I drilled holes in the plastic plugs at the front for my Retrax.

    Bakflip here. Used the hose and stuck it in the hole on the side of the bed.

    BakFlip MX4.

    I drilled holes in the plastic plugs. Note, if you have a spray in bed liner and the plugs are sprayed you need to take some care if you want to keep the coating on there. More for aesthetics than anything else.

    Seems like either one is ok. I’m gonna drill through the plastic holes. Thanks for the help.
