Will Tie-Down Anchors Stop Water Getting in Stake Pockets in 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 With Tonneau Cover?


I have a 2005 Dodge 2500 long bed with a Back Flip Tonneau Cover. Currently with the open bed rail holes I get a lot of water in the truck bed when it rains. Will the Erickson tie downs eliminate water into the truck bed?


Expert Reply:

The Erickson Retractable Tie-Down Anchors for Truck Bed Stake Pockets # EM01003 will provide a type of seal to the stake pockets of your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 but they are not designed to keep water out so I could not guarantee you that it will eliminate water into your truck bed. It should give you some relief from the water pouring in, however, as well as providing useful attachment points.

There are also simple stake pocket covers, the TruXedo Stake Pocket Covers # TX1704210 which are 2.54" x 1.90".

I've added links to a pair of video reviews of the Erickson Anchors for you to take a look at as well.
