Bed Sealing Process

Sealed the bed up today to prep for my Camper install in a couple weeks.

Still have a few more things to seal up but will do that when the Camper is installed (tailgate area and the 3 holes in the floor bed up front).

Well let’s hope this helps some.

It’s a shame I forgot to get pics of the header, I did that too with the same tape and sealant.

Tip remove the side caps from tailgate to cab you can do this by hand and slowly pop it up.

Butyl Putty Tape (plenty leftover for usage elsewhere)

XFasten Butyl Sealing Tape

Nashua Aqua Seal Tape (1 Roll was just enough for DCSB gen3 Tacoma, but no room for error)
-Don’t pull on it and stretch this once it sticks it’s very tacky.
-I unrolled the length I needed then cut it. Then started at the cab and worked back unrolled the backing gradually as you lay it down. at the back if you leave the backing and press the curve in the back you can use a razor blade to trim to that angle.

Thank you to @Buhlockaye and @GainzGFC for the tips and others who have posted this work for ideas and help.


Bed Sealing Continued (Post GFC Install)

Did some more bed area sealing today. Still need to install the bed cubby blocks to seal that area (thanks to a FB GFC Group member).

I couldn’t cover the bed hole that’s above the gas tank but I covered the other two from the bottom as well.


Butyl Putty Tape (used this in a couple places, see below)

Nashua Aqua Seal Tape (used this for the bed holes and the bed meets the sides)

ESI Ultimate Tailgate Seal (if you are super precise you might have enough for it all that I did including rear panel spots. I wish it was 6” more of bulb).

^I followed this along with adding the seal to the tailgate.

Added some 3M Strip-Calk in this bed seam.

Rok Block Install

Rok Block Tailgate Gap Seal

Wanted to close up this gap. The more ways for dust I can prevent getting in the better! Getting closer to “mostly eliminating”.

Sealed the passenger cubby holes with the 3D printed parts also but forgot to take pics. Used JB Weld Putty for securing them in place.


Got the fan to use in the camper as I don’t want to cut up and void warranty on the roof if I can avoid it.

Comes with a tripod or can hang with the loop on the fan upside down which is the plan when sleeping.

Install Day: Belgrade, MT


GFC Night #1 (4 of trip): Main Boulder Road Outside of McLeod, MT**





GFC Night #2 (5 of trip): Outside of Badlands National Park, SD

Winds were brutal this stay. Sustained 20-30 with gusts of up to 43 for about 3-4 hours. Tent struts did not like that (with facing into the wind).

-Great quality minus the carabiners, upgraded to Black Diamond carabiners.


Well after a 6 day trip to get the camper installed in Belgrade and over 3,000 miles finally home (would rather still be West).


Love how clean and straightforward this is all looking! Congrats on the new GFC.


Thank you so much!!! I need to get that camera setup installed this week! Stoked to show off that mount.

Tent Lock Install

Got the tent lock installed. Works awesome and looks OEM!!

You just need to trim as you see below. I used a dremel which cut it very easily.

Man the Vernacular bedding catch looks so much better than my Amazon net I use, but damn if his products aren’t double the price they should be lol
