    Hey .....I was looking at previous threads about SHELLS.
    I see LEER , ARE and more .I have a 4 door long bed TRD.
    I also have questions about "THE RUBBER BOOT" thing.
    I hear the boot wears at the paint and I know the newer generation boots are better BUT..................
    I have already decided on BEDRUG
    can you add your 2 cents
    Thank you
    Mike

    do you really need dry access from the rear window to the shell?Or do you think you must have that inorder for the shell to seal the bed from weather?If installed correctly it will keep the weather out of the bed without the boot.

    Dry access or no access
    I just want to know what is best
    And what you guys use
    The only reason for access would let my dog poke his face in the cab ,otherwise no need.
    I have seen these with boots and some with rubber cushion and others with nothing.
    I am here to find an opinion
    Thanks
    Mike
