Complete Truck Bed Seal...
I am trying to seal up my truck bed to keep out dust, water and wind. I have seen several options via the web, but none appear to shine over the others. I'm interested what others have done to correct the "Wholly Bed Syndrome".
My rig is a 2011 Silverado with a truck cap and BedRug (not yet installed) that will be used for camping. I know that the BedRug is waterproof... but my sleeping bag and gear are not.

I just order the "Access Total Bed Seal Kit". Havn't got it yet, but I'll let you know how well it works. Includes just about everything to seal the bed up as tight as feasibly possible.

Extruded Solutions, Inc.
I just received a canopy seal, extra wide, and a seal for the tailgate from Extruded Solutions, Inc. They are in MN and make the products. No Imports for me.
I have a Leer Canopy and a Bedrug. Yes, there is water leakage. You cannot make it water tight. Buy a camper if you want water tight.
The tailgate seals may or may not seal out your water. You have to actually get inside your truck with the canopy mounted, have someone run water over the top and down the side of the canopy, starting at the front, working around each side but only do the front first, then the corner, then along the side. See if any water leaks in. If none does, then you only have to worry about the tailgate. \
Problem is there is "one size fits all" in seals for tailgate areas, and each truck even within a production run can have a variation in the gap between the tailgate and the bed. However, this company seems good, so I will try to repost after I get the seal on the canopy bottom and the seal on the tail gate area. If I can exclude most moisture, I will be satisfied. I don't expect to keep it all out.1994 Chevy K2500 Silverado, 454 (modified), original owner.

Berry Interesstink!! PILOTJ and FLYBYE have aviatoion names. One has 1 post the other has 4, and FLYBYE has no profile. They mention a specific bed sealer and wait to see how it works out. I bet it's VERY successful.

In the world of forums, it's an insult to suggest, imply or out-right say to someone. I don't know your motive, I hope it's pure and is an honest mistake...either on your side (your comment) or my misunderstanding. Either way it would be easy for a Moderator or the Site Owner to check and see if the posts are even coming from the same area.
My Chevy Silverado is new and is the first truck I have ever owned and my one post was only because I couldn't find the answer to my question when searching. Thanks for the warm welcome Billnorman!

Yep, I kind of figured billnorman was implying I (and you) were trolls. I just let it go. It seems as though any time you mention a specific product on some forums, they think you trying to plug a product. Thats why I don't post a whole lot.....just read through the post's to get the info I'm looking for. I've left other forum's in the past for the same reasons (athough none related to any of my post's). I'm just not into the "accusing" type of people. Great forum otherwise! I've found a lot of great info from these members.

Water coming in wouldn't be a concern if I didn't have a carpeted cap and planon using the truck bed to camp in, but I am. I know that water-in will resultin ripe stagnate water residue setting under the BedRug.
Pilotj or anyone else, when you do install the foam(?) under the side rails, let me know howyou think it will work. (tight fit, will it slide down in-between the panels,any other/better options) Thanks

Yes I have seen "trollers" too. That was a nice personal note from PilotJ and he says it is just a coincidence. I thought so too. It is what it is I hope he doesn't take it personal, life's too short. Let's assume it is legitimate. Good luck on keeping water out.
