any local hardwear store. Are planning on keeping your topper on forever? If so just use some regular door and window silicone. Or some weather striping

There's a very cheap way to do this. I've seen it in person and it works. In construction you have to put Seal Sealer™ between the bottom plate and the deck(the floor) to keep air and water from sneaking in through there.

It's a styrofoam material. Work well. It's come in 4" wide & 6" wide. Your local lumber yard or construction material store should have it. 4" should work fine for you. Use 1 layer of it. Fold it
In half so it's 2" wide then lay it in between the cap and bedrail.

Will you take a pic of how your topper sits on the bed rail. I assume its like a capital L. And a c clamp to clamp it down.

I want new tires but I can't decide between 235s, 30x9.50, or 31x10.50 lol. I like the idea of lifting the front a tad and going 31s just haven't decided yet.
