    i have worked in auto upholstry, and Auto Custom Carpets is the best there is. they're molded to an actual pan so they fit like factory carpet. and you can get it in almost any color available. i'm not sure if you can get it directly from them or if you will have to go through an upholstry shop. just beware of carpet kits from jc whitney and lmc.

    I have an LMC carpet kit in one of my trucks, and I can tell you they are as cheap a material as can be possibly used. They are paper thin, and can be torn just using your hands...like tearing a piece of paper.

    Sorry for the hijack - how did the LMC carpet fit? I have a new set sitting in the gagrage. It seems of adequate thickness and strength - I wonder if it is a different set....? I will be installing this weekend I hope.
