    what do you guys keep in the rear storage compartments? im talking about the ones towards the tailgate with the covers, not the ones over the wheel wells.

    im asking because i was keeping my towstrap, rope, tie downs, bungees, etc. there but i notice that after it rains or i go through the car wash water gets in there and they are somewhat damp.

    i was just wondering if anyone ever had issues with their towstraps, tie downs, etc. getting mildew or mold growing on them or dry rotting or even rotting from the dampness.

    do the holes in the bottom of the compartment allow for enough air flow to keep this from happening?

    sorry if its a rediculous question... i like to keep the stuff there, just dont want it to get ruined or weak and break when i need it most either.

    Not sure about your question on the air flow. But we have a couple bungee cords and the switch for our bed lights. We have a tonneau cover though.

    No I really have no clue what your talking about, and no not yet but I have only had my truck for a little while.

    Maybe you could put some small weather stripping in the sealing part?

    Nothing, used to keep tie downs in there but some A-hole took them and on multiple occasions I've come back to my truck and the compartment doors are laying in the bed after another a-hole decided to take a look. Even worse is a few times it's being done by other fisherman at the boat launches at multiple lakes. Now I keep the tie downs under the rear seat where they are always there and dry.

    Thank you for make me laugh and bringing back some sanity. I honestly thought my old buddy and myself were the only ones who remember that skit.

    But on to the post... Bungee cords and a fire extinguisher.
