I did in my 4X4 but not in my ranger cause it has a cover. Most come from the factory with drains. There just not very big and get clogged easy.

you could drill a couple small drain holes in the bed, just be careful where though so you dont accidently drill into the gas tank/ wiring.

So, I might have a drain already? It's just clogged by something? Hmm. I'll have to go check that out.

Thanks man.

The drains are at the front of the bed. They are little slits between the floor and back wall.

I use a heavy duty nylon brush and some blasts of water to clean 'em out.
