Default Truck Bed Stake Pockets Issue

Hi All,

So I'm aware this may seem like a dumb question but I can't seem to find any answers on the site. When I bought my truck it had a SnugTop on the back which I've since replace with a BAKFlip tonneau cover. When I did so, I realised that the rear stake pockets did not have covers, leaving a gap for water, dust etc to get in -- see attached photo.

Does anyone know if there are factory issue plugs for these stake pockets, or any other ideas on what I could do to fill them?

Cheers,
Rich.

Since your tonneau does not cover the holes just put in some tie downs. The ones with the expanding rubber are probably the best.

Here are some example at Auto Zone:

You might also want to check with one of the Z sponsors, Bully's Performance as I see that Bully's has a tie down product at the Auto Zone.

Get a set of these for the rear stake pockets. You have to cut out the cap on the line with a razor knife so they can drop in and tighten up. Covers the whole opening and works good and looks good too.

Thanks Guys,

Before I buy anything different though, I was hoping to find out if there is some sort of factory-issue insert or cover for these.

It's a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Bighorn if that helps in any way...

Rich..

Google stake pocket covers. Amazon.com has some.

the tie downs are more useful, bedrails would look good.

Good to know. Maybe they would be OK if a small amount of adhesive was used before the installation.

Search "stake pocket bullrings" in google.
i think those would be the best to seal the stake pocket hole.
