    Default Truck Topper/Shell Dust Issue

    I get a good bit of dust blowing under the topper from around the tail gate. Has anyone tried weather stripping to seal the tail gate? Or have another solution. Any help is appreciated!

    Its my understanding there are tailgate kits available but I went the cheap route and bought a roll of 3/4 inch self adhesive foam weather-striping, solvent cleaned the surfaces and ran a bead of weather strip along the interior edge of the pickup bed where it meets the tailgate. Marked improvement and held up for a couple seasons. Hunting partners did same with similar results Good Luck

    There is a weather strip "flap" which attaches to the bottom of thr bed. Installed and does a good job.Toppers snd beds are NOT all square.Major problem. Check yours. Other strips are standard and can assist as well.

    Had Radco install a bed rug, topper and seal kit. I drive a lot of gravel with no dust issues it’s an awesome combination!
