    I put in the complete Cheyenne Pickup Parts interior carpet kit with the heat reflective backing about two years ago and am very happy with it. Pics on my site below.

    I recently went to my local Chevy dealer to see what they would charge for new capret for my '90. Carpet is no longer stocked. They referred me to a local trim shop that does all their work. I visited the shop and was able to see samples of what they would install and got some prices. At first I was in shock about the prices until I realized he was quoting installed. Complete front, rear and wheelwells of high quality carpet that matches was about $225.00 if I did the install.

    I was actually about to post this. I found this on ebay, . The company has a <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.1aauto.com/>website, but the K5 section does not have any info. It appears that they use the ACC brand carpet and at $199(ebay price, I am sure the price would be the same at their site) it is a great price. My dad works at an aftermarket supply house and the best price he can get it for me is $240. They state to be able to do any color, even custom colors. When I buy my carpet this will probably be the place I go. Maybe we should ask Steve to talk to them about a CK5 discount. [​IMG]

    I had a local upholsterer do mine. He only charged me $200, but I had to help him out (remove seats, pull up the old stuff, and clean up the floor). He also made new panels for the door bottoms and made one for the tailgate. Not a bad deal at all, and I think the quality is second to none.
