Anyone else having some issues with bolts backing out. So far I have had them back out of

Doors each a couple times
Tailgate lost count, had to get new bolts
and have found one laying under my truck from an unknown spot. this was before I ever lost it out of the tailgate.

Before anyone suggests it I and the dealer have used buckets of freaking loctite. It may just be these damn Detroit roads.

Any other suggestion besides loctite, I was thinking about a small amount of silicone on there.

I live down a long very rough dirt road, and haven't had any issues with this.

I am pretty sure your dirt road doesn't have randomly placed 1' plus deep potholes. There are 3 just like that on my college's main access street.

At times it is horrible, imagine 3.5 miles of washboard roads. Followed by holes and ruts. One day I will take a pic of some of the worse spots. I maintain about 1/2 a mile of it, so I try to take car of that part, but the rest is taken care of by the county. There are only 2 people that live down it, so you can imagine how high of a priority it is for the county to take care of the rest of it.

I've had absolutely no problems. Some in '04 did have such a problem, and JetTech (IIRC) did a thread on all the locations he found needed tightened up.

Sorry bout the assumption on the dirt road, maybe the guy building mine had a few screws loose. I know I know horrible pun. I am just getting a little paranoid, but considering the some of what I have hit the truck is amazingly tight still. It would fair a lot better if those in Detroit would drive in one lane on a one lane road. Going to class it looks like the opening lap of an f1 race, lets see how many assholles will fit. Grrrr, sorry bout the rant, but the roads and drivers are just getting worse.

I hear you, that is why I moved into the country. I could not stand driving in the city I used to live by. My dirt road is actually eating away at my bed cover, it has dimples where the tracks ride. The cover is actually getting harder to close. I will probably have to replace the tracks soon.

Dang I never really would have thought of that, but I have seen what West Texas sand does when it gets behind those old car bras. You think they would warranty that bed cover against that.

The cover had a year warranty, and I have had it for over 2 years. I can't fault them, the washboard roads shake the whole truck, even worse in my wifes quest. Never open a coke while still on the dirt road, or it will be all over the console. The one bad thing about being out in the woods, the good thing is my nearest neighbor is over 3 miles away. At night the closest lights I can see is the town 8 miles away, I love it out here.

You are making me way jealous right now. Growing up I lived out in the sticks in Texas and Nebraska. Well lived in the cities some too but not as often. I really do not like this whole condo thing, I am so ready to be done with school to actually be able to afford something with more than a privacy fence separating me from the neighbor.

It has been my dream for years to own some property to hunt on, and not be surrounded by neighbors. Took a long time, but it finally happened. I don't think I could handle having neighbors anymore.

Btw what grade of thread locker are you using to secure those bolts? They have atleast 3 different grades, the highest is almost impossible to remove. Here is a link I just found. http://www.smallparts.com/products/...standard&OVADID=7759221521&OVKWID=89007090521
