    To take the seat out just flip it up and unbolt the telescoping supporting rod then unbolt the two bolts in front and it comes right out. To take the carpet out remove the rear trim plate(holds carpet down) and the front trim plate(plastic piece by the passenger footwell) and the spare tire mount and it comes out. Then take out the insulation. The trickest part is removing the carpet on the wheelwells because it's glued on. Try to get most of the carpet off, then try using a paint scrapper, acetone, or a wire wheel(wire wheel was the most messy but the quickest route) to remove the glue

    I just did this a week or so ago. there are 3 bolts that hold the seat on, 2 at the front and one on the side wall at the end of the shock looking thing. Take them out. Now your seat is out. Unscrew the screws for the carpet and take it out. Be really careful with that black tarpaper junk if you are going to reuse it. Its pretty straightforward, good luck.

    There is no real trick to removing the carpet or rear seat. The seat is just 2 bolts at the pivot under the seat and one shoulder bolt at the 'locking' arm going into the side of the fenderwell. The carpet may be glued down, mine was. It was so badly rotted I just ripped the thing out. The hard part will be getting the fenderwell carpet off...definitely glued, but usually not rotted so they'll come off in one piece.
    Hopefully the inside of your truck hasn't seen too much moisture or the bolts may be rusted. Mine were a little tough to remove but not so bad. A friend of mine snapped all three bolts...[​IMG]
    If the bolts come out instead of breaking clean the threads and nev'r-seez them before you put it back together.
