    I want to redo the carpet in my trcuk soon. But do I have to buy a molded capret kit from a supplier? If so wheres the cheapest one to but it from? And if I dont have to get a molded kit how else can I put new carpet in it. Can I buy auto capret at a carpet store and use my old carpet as a template to cut out the new pice of carpet?

    I know JCWhitney sells a kit. My christmas present this past year aws a full carpet set. Mine was made by a friend of a friend that does interiors. Its 6 parts in all. Wheel well pieces, cargo floor, "cab" floor, and two little squares at the foot of the backseat you woudln't really realize. Mine ran close to $300 I seem to think.

    i just bought some carpet from homedepot (the cheap stuff on the big rollers) and cut it to fit. i through some foamy stuff under it (also from HD) so it's nice and comfy. cost about $60 for the whole deal and i think it looks and feels purty nice.

    I bought a carpet kit from JC Whitney and it completely sucked. Theres a big stich seam around the trans tunnel that looks terrible. It was also way to big. I had to cut 9" of both ends for it to fit right. The rubber foot pad under the brake pedal came unsewn within a month of installation. I just ripped it out. It was cheap though, so be careful.

    wouldn't the fomy stuff (from home depot) suck in water and do rust magic on your floors? (sorry to but in)

    i took the pool out of my truck, so it stays pretty dry /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    my truck has very little rust (none in the bed) and it stays dry with the top on...plus i live in LA - mucho dry here.

    I bought a kit made by Auto Custom Carpets... VERY nice quality and preformed as well. Click Here for an entire manual (warning, it's large!). The price for the entire kit is $220.

    I bought an LMC kit for my 89', and everything fit perfect.
    It looked great for about 6 months, and then it started fading bad. Now it looks terrible. I forgot what I payed for it, but I wouldnt put carpet in it again. I like the rubber matting like my dad has in his 95' 3/4 ton. Mine is dark blue btw
