The plastic liner shouldn't be a problem. I have a drop in liner as well. I installed a tailgate seal with my Truxedo Lo Pro QT cover and it's water tight....

Did you install it to the metal of the truck or the plastic? I ensure it was on the metal of the truck and nothing on the liner.

I have not put anything around my tailgate
I think Dodge engineers did a lousy design with the tailgate, there is the poor fit & if you look, the sheet metal doesn't even match the side rail sheet metal, the plastic crap is designed to hide that fact

TruXedo TruxSeal Tailgate Seal Kit may be something that would help you.

Just checked it out again and the rubber tailgate stops on each side are sticking out 1/2 in beyond the sealer! Any suggestions? Might run a water hose on it too see how bad it is Curly
