    03 tacoma, stock
    custom paint, shell on the way!
    Am installing a new shell on my 03 taco with a duraliner bedliner already on the truck. Should I leave the rubber drain plug installed or remove it permanently? Once I install the shell, I do not want to take it off unless I have to.
    It recently rained really hard and I removed my bedliner to see the condition of the bed....a small puddle had formed near the base of the bed nearest the cab....think if the plugs had been removed, some of the water would have drained.
    Any info. will be helpull... Thanks and aloha from Maui, Hawaii
    PEACE!!! :D

    well, once you put the shell on, it should virtually be waterproof so removing the plug wouldnt help at all...and also, the rubber drain plug in the bed? Its not a factory option on an 03
