    This summer I'm going to rip out my carpet and put some sort of bed lining in it. I'm getting new carpet, but should I put lining under it?? If so, what kind would be a good investment and what would be the benefits of lining?? Thanks. [​IMG]

    the benifits that i can think of would be to deaden more sound and to stop rust ........the carpet traps water under it and that leads to rust.........hope this is what you needed

    I did this to my bed last summer. The truck is quiter and warmer in the winter! Also the carpet is staying dryer all year round.

    I also want to do this later this year. But I do not want to replace the back carpet, mine is currently all chewed up and greasy as he!l. I do not think the DIY stuff is thick enough for this application, but I would like to hear some feedback from those that have used the different liners(Line-X, Rhino, Duplicolor, Herculiner, etc). Thanks

    I herculined my blazer about a year ago. It's held up really good so far. The biggest part of the install was the prep time involved. Everything has to be sanded so the liner can stick. I stopped just short of the tailgate but I will line that sometime soon. One other thing I noticed. If you don't run carpet or some kind of rubber floormat it gets pretty dang hot inside the cab.

    Hey I just saw a do-it-yourself kit at a Checker Auto. It came with the stuff and a textured roller. Has anone use this stuff before?
    Is it worth it?
    No WAY the wife would let me dump 400 to 500 in it for that.
