Hey gang,

I bought a bak flip last year before and winter like it alot. Last winter, never had a problem swing tailgate down in winter, no freezing, etc...

However noticed this year it often feezes to the point where I can not get tailgate down without either banging the rubber lip where it contacts tailgate to losen up ice....sometimes I have to use warm water to free up.

What has changed since last winter other than the unit is one year older?

Anyone else having similar freezing issues?

Thanks.

just a guess maybe the rubber had a oil residue on it that helped keep it from freezing solid to it !

try putting some vaseline along the rubber, i know this works for door seals, so it should work for the tonneau rubber aswell.. may make the tailgate a little greasy, but it shouldnt freeze either
