    i'd never go back to carpet. i just know that's why it rusted out the cargo area in the first place. i actually thought about it once....but then it rained with the top off. nope not gonna happne. going with some kinda roll on stuff. debating herculiner or looking into line-x

    the thing is that this truck is not my trail rig, and this truck is very clean so its more of a restoration

    Herculine it under the carpet...added expense? yes...but at least you wouldnt have to worry about it rusting in the cargo area. My blazer hadn't seen rain in well over a month and a half, and the top doesnt leak, but when i ripped out the carpet the insulation mat under it was damp and there was rust bubbles under the paint...luckily it was all cleaned up with a wire brush
