    Was a link of forum to Amazon. Can't remember manufacturer and details, sorry. But, package contains two different products, two different ways to seal the box. Choice
    is on you.

    Not the OP, this is the one I used: Amazon.com: ESI Ultimate Tailgate Seal with Taper Seal 10ft for use with Truck Caps and Tonneau Covers : Automotive
    I have no idea if there are better ones or not, I can just say it did work and it stays stuck. They had a set of videos or instructions for various trucks and it took a moment of pondering to figure out exactly how to put it on the sides of the bed for the side edges of the tailgate.

    Well it looks like ESI products get the nod from several places.
    The seal helps tremendously but doesn't close off all the spots. Dust comes in the storage bin, and two square spots at the back of the bed in front of the tailgate. Also look to seal the top side edges of the tailgate and up in the front corners of the bed. I used some extra weatherstripping from my BAKflip for those other spots.

    I have a set in black.
    I initially thought they could be installed and the receiver could be removed. That’s not how it works. So I have the replacement “receiver” that comes without the tow package, but it’s going to require a little grinding and drilling another hole. Just haven’t had the time.

    I’ll have to research it, but I remember seeing a set of seals for the storage bin. Can probably use some foam weatherstripping at the two openings where the cover legs go into, if that makes sense. That’s where the dust enters.

    My bed gets pretty dusty in the summer months off-roading. Even with the tonneau cover closed.

    Good idea, tho, please, keep posted.
    In fact, tailgate seal is a first specific car product I order (of the rubber seals, I mean). Working around/beside/with glass installing guys for last 20 years - I havve very good selection of various rubber seals and caskets in my garage.:D:thumbsup:

    It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine) ...

    But while it dies ... Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden on CBS (I'm is a New York state-of-mind ...)
