    Default Hose bed cover question

    I'm going to Pierce next week for a pre-build conference and I wanted to ask you all a question about hose bed covers. Just off the bat, no, we can't afford the diamond plate covers. My question is do any of you have the webbing or mesh rear flaps on yours? All the vinyl ones I've seen tend to wear quickly from the constant flapping, even with bungees to hold them. We asked the dealer if we could get either mesh or webbing on the rear so the air would flow through and not cause it to wear faster. We were told the couldn't do it, but I can't see any reason it can't be done, especially since that's what they use for the cross lays'. Any of you have this setup on your trucks? If you can post a pic that would be great. Thanks.

    All our Engines are Pierce and they all have nets on all the hosebeds. I will take a picture of one tommorow. If Pierce will not do it, their are quite a few aftermarket companies that will for a reasonable price.

    These guys offer many versions: http://<br /> http://www.dscustomco...bed_covers.php

    Tell Pierce to order them for your rig and throw them into the price. They can do it with all the other add ons, why not hose bed covers?
