    for those of you that have replaced your carpet- what company did you use- and where'd ya get it from?????

    how close was it to a "perfect" fit as they claim?

    I used JC Whitneys kit, and it was ok. It turned out pretty good, but I did do a fair amount of trimming to get everything to fit just right. The kit itself fits ok over everything, but along the front edge of the back seat needed trimmed, and along the sides and the door sills neede trimmed. The front fit pretty good, you just have to fit it to your truck.

    Just don't do it like i did and do it when it is 90+ degrees outside, and you have to be inside the truck with little airflow. It gets hot real quick.

    I got mine from Auto Custom Carpets. It was a direct drop in, although I did have to cut a hole for the shifter. I agree with yunit, carpet is way overated and a pain-in-the-bung /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I have used ACC before, and it seems to be good quality with a good fit. Like was stated, have to cut for the shifter, but other than that I was very pleased.

    I got 2 rolls of the cheap stuff from Wal-Mart... you know the kind that is like $8 bucks each. I put some liner down (Duplicolor) and then got some padding with the foil on one side then just laid that ontop and cut it to size. It's not fancy.... but it works. I hid the seam under the seats. With all the trim pieces in place it's held down fine. I also bought some rubber floor mats, so honestly you see more mats then anything. I dunno... for the price it was worth to me... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
