There's plastic caps near the bottom of the bed stake pockets that you can pull out and run the tubes into. I don't think the ones at the top go down all the way.

This is where I ran mine on my 2012 ram.

not sure on the 2011's however on my 2012 the did go all the way down, I had the linex in mine as well and the shop that did it just sprayed right over the plugs and did not pull the plastic/rubber piece out I did not want to pull them out and chance cracking the liner or something so I looked for another solution and climbed under the truck and was able to verify the ones at the top went all the way down so that is where I ran the tube too.

As stated though this was one a 2012, might be slightly different on a 2011 just climb under the truck and look up and see if you can see the holes or not if you can you are good to go, if not you may want to find another solution..

thanks
Jeremiah

This is where I located my drain tubes on my '13 Big Horn with the BakFlip VP tonneau cover. My Linex dealer used the holes in the front of the bed that were plugged with plastic caps. The installer drilled small pilot holes, big enough to barely fit the plastic tubing into, and then sprayed the liner.

after examining the holes near the top of the bed they do in fact open up so i can run the drain lines through them with out having to try and find the other drain holes that were sprayed over with the bed liner

When I installed my Roll-N-Lock cover, I ran the drain tubes in the slot behind the tie down hooks.

I used a heat gun on low heat to heat up the rubber seal. A hair dryer will work well also.

I will soon be mounting a BakFlip F1 on my new Dodge Longhorn Limited.

its been raining here for the past few days and there is definitely water coming in where the rubber seal is not formed tight to the bed rail so after it quits raining i will try the hair dryer trick
