Thought I would ask a former Ford engineer for a phone number in Ford engineering (hard to get) Remebered folowing:

Just a note from a recent x-Ford aero engineer I met at church. He says that leaving the solid tailgate up has less wind resistance than down, or off, or one with bars. If you really want to improve things like gas milage that a cover over the top of the bed does wonders.

He just moved here from Michagan to work at Lockheed on the F-35. Guess he knows his stuff.
