    Well, it's about time to get some new carpet for the Jimmy. I'm thinking about maybe looking at the bedliner like rhino liner or line-x. Do they charge by square foot or is there just a set price? I'm thinking it should be around like $500 to do the interior, does that sound right? Or should I just order the rubber mats from LMC and slap them in. Which would be better for the money and the long run especially if the top will be off.

    Go with bedliner. I used $50 a gallon stuff at wal-mart and it works OK. But Rhino or Line-X would be best.

    They have set prices for standard things like pickup beds. But for the floor of a k5, they need to give you a quote. Front and rear floors, probably $500-$600. If they have to do the prep work (like remove seats, trim, etc) probably a little more.
    Well worth it though. Line-x is great! I had my whole k5 done, inside and out!

    Which is better, Line-ex or Rhino lined? Does the spray in liner insulate the cab well, as far as in sound and heat from the exhaust?
