Default Tricks to dumping RAIN WATER from bed?

This is my first Truck Truck (have always owned Expeditions) and my 2015 XLT Sport bed is filled with water.
Other than the obvious pegging the speedometer while driving up hill, whats a good way to drain the water? Preferably while at a stand still.

Park on an incline. *The steeper the more betterer.

Pegging the speedo is not required to get rid of the water.
At the stand still you need to jack up the front end.
I would not recommend drilling holes.

Put a cover on the bed.

Lift weights and get strong enough to lift the front end and dump out the water.

Good idea on the incline parking.

Hookup a hose to the bed and use it for ecologically correct watering.

Plug all the holes and use it for a hot tub, using the seat coolers as the heat source.

I was thinking of an automatic bilge pump!

Unless your purchase came with a very good tailgate seal the bed shouldn't hold that much water. If there is a tailgate seal did you try opening the bed?

Must have a drop in bed liner?


My '14 does not hold water.

Chicago style unload. About 10 mph in reverse and lock up the brakes.
