    I heard that the BAKFlip tonneau cover drainage system does not fit the Tacoma bed drain. Is that right? Anyone dealt with this problem successfully? Can I enlarge the drain holes in the bed without problems? Thanks. Raul

    Just drill them out to make them fit. No big deal. I was thinking of using fitting to make it fit then decided that would be a mistake in the winter. Just make bigger holes.

    Me no problems.

    I drilled in side of bed, not my idea saw another members pic. Seems to work good, the hole is a little bigger than I wanted and can't find a rubber grommet yet.

    That is a good idea. I didn't do mine that way. I used the existing holes but just made them bigger. You get +10 for effort. Wish I would have seen that before, it's to late now.
