Default Bakflip G2 and OEM Dodge Boxliner

I am down in Florida from Canada and I ordered a Bakflip G2 down here since it is so much cheaper. I received it today and the rails have a little bit of an issue with the OEM box liner that was an option that came with my 2010 Sport 1500 Crew Cab. It seems like I will need to cut the box liner to get the rails to fit. I know some have mentioned having to do this in the past with having a box liner, but I don't know if they cut the tailgate cover or the front lip of the box liner to get it to fit.

As a side note I really don't have many tools with me so cutting the front lip of the box liner might be tuff, but I want to make sure if I cut the tail gate cover it will still seal at the front. So know exactly what others have done will help me make the right decision.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Don't cut the front, the G2 comes witha foam seal to go there if you DON'T have a bedliner. The rear seal will fit the bare fatory tailgate spoiler. If your spoiler was removed to install the liner I wouldn't cut the tailgate liner either.

Thanks! I will just take off the tailgate piece of the bedliner for now to get it on. Thankfully it is over top of the factory spoiler.

I put mine in a few months ago and just removed and trimmmed the front of the liner. I don't think it will work properly if you do any work on the tailgate. Just my .02.

Did you install the foam rubber seal on the front of your bed after cutting the liner there? The instructions for mine said to only use it if I didn't have a liner (which I don't). If I didn't use the seal I would have had a 1/4" gap between the rail and the cover at the front of my bed. My understanding is that an over the rail bed liner would mate with the cover there without using the seal and would not require cutting the liner.

I didn't use the seal across the back except where I had to trim the liner to fit the rails. At that location I cut the tape and filled it in to prevent any water infiltration. Seems to be working well.

Oh, I see, I thought you cut the whole front lip of the liner off.

I have a factory under rail bed liner and I guess that is what you call a box liner. I have a BakFlip F-1 and simply installed it on top of the front bed liner flap, side rail cap and tail gate cap. No alterations were made to anything nor were any seals needed. Shims were the only thing added between the BacFlip and vehicle rails.
