    Im getting ready to repaint my new tow rig in the next couple weeks and want to shave the drip rails, I know they screw on and I will have to weld up the holes, anything else I should look for or watch out for when doing it?

    Just make sure that your door seals are in good condition and don't leak air, otherwise you may get water leaks. You can check your door seals by turning the air/heat on full blast and shutting the doors, then hold a tissue and move it around the perimeter of the door and see if it moves. But I think the only function that the drip rails serve is to make sure you don't get dripped on while entering/exiting your truck.
