Retrax Owners Show Me Your Drain Holes

Recommended Posts

In the market for a Retrax Pro MX but do not really like the idea of drilling holes in my factory spray in bed liner. If you drilled did you coat with anything?

I drilled forward toward the bed, as to keep the drain hoses up out of the way from wood/hockey sticks/etc sliding toward the back of the bed and hitting them had I just drilled down through the bed.

 

Guy I bought my Retrax from recommended that, as he learned the hard way after sliding sheets of plywood in and taking out his drain tubes.

 

Didn't coat it with anything, works great and gave had zero issues.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks. Any pictures? Did you use a 7/8” bit? I’m in the north east so I’m very paranoid for corrosion.

Anyone else with pictures? I thinking about drilling in the bed wall vs the floor, thinking it’s thinner. Hate to do it to a brand new truck

I was hesitant as well and waited a while before finally doing it. I’m in Ohio so I share your corrosion fears. No regrets at all and wish I had done it sooner.
