I wouldn't worry too much about it as long as you take some precautions like that...I ended up drilling holes in the bed of my old truck and didn't have any rust problems, but I did what I described above. With no protection, you will likely get rust in there since the splash guards are subject to all kinds of muck from the road.
Soldierguy, I believe we have the exact same optioned vehicles.
By any chance
do you have pictures with the splash guards installed? I'm going to order up
the door entry gaurds, the front end cover/bra, and the cabin air filter. Still
not sure if its worth drilling for splash guards or not though. Would you consider
them a must? Its either that or I'll leave the front wheels alone, and maybe
install some 3M clear bra material behind the back wheels.
