I honestly don't see what the big deal is. You drive down the road, no need to floor it or anything, and the water comes out of your truck. If you don't look in the rear view mirror, you wouldn't even know it was there.

Do nothing, water evaporates.

I think the answer is pretty obvious: open up a mobile swimming pool.

I apologize if I wasted anyone's time with reading my silly thread. With this being my first truck, and living in Florida where it rains a few times a day almost every day, combined with not driving the truck everyday, I was just curious if there was a way to have the water drain more efficiently.

Thanks to the few comments/ ideas to help.

You did not waste folks time! Gives us something to read!

We have a 96 Ranger and live North of Seattle! Our street as is our driveway both have a little bit of an incline! The Ranger gathers water regularly! A LOT of water which you most certainly feel!

We've learned to simply park the truck so the water can run out the back in the rainy season.

The F150 has a hard folding tonneau which blocks 99.9% of the water from entering the bed so no worries there!

Water in the bed isn't hurting anything so no reason to do anything about it.

Looks like a good time to check the brakes and steering!
