If you don't drive it much get you some little blocks of wood are plastic ramps and just park on those to keep the front end up. Or it's a excuse to get a nice bed cover or camper 😎

Just don't spit it in his bed, already too much water there.

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.
Boy your just asking for it with this kind of question!.. Lol .. I've taken a broom to mine and swept it out, parked it in the sun for a couple of days, and drove it up a hill to dump the water out.

For everyone taking it as a joke I actually looked at it as a serious question... Maybe the joke is on me.

When I had my bed line-x'd it would not drain water. If I knew it was going to rain I would leave the tail-gate down. but the times I didnt the bed would fill (with whatever amount) and not drain until I opened the tail gate. Which made it fun when I left it up during a tropical storm/hurricane in NC.

I looked into removing the front bed plugs... but they were line-x'd over and I didnt feel like cutting.

I've since added a tonneau and dont have the issue anymore.

TY Sir. Ill have to look into a tonneau cover then. Im going to wash it for the first time today and will see if there is any easier way to let it drain through holes or plugs.

Definitely get a tonneau cover. Not only does it look great, but it will keep your bed dry... I've got one on mine and love it
