    I got mine from LMC www.lmctruck.com and it was really good quality. They have matching carpeted lower door panels as well if you want to have everything match. It was about $250 for front and rear carpet I think. Might be able to find it cheaper somewhere else.

    Your carpet looks REALLY good - very tight nap (spelling?)! I wonder if you replaced any of the insulation underneath it? If so, where did you get that and what did you spend? Also, did you go with any sound deadening material?

    Hey Ben, thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I did replace all the padding under it as the original padding was rotting. I got that from LMC too. The padding is about 1/2" thick with a foil heat shield on it. Cost $29 for a 4x6' roll. I've seen similar stuff at the local auto parts stores but it's nowhere near as thick as the stuff LMC stocks.

    As for sound deadening, I looked into Dynamat but the insane price for that stuff scared me away. I ended up getting this stuff called Polymeric Mastic from McMaster-Carr (part #9709T19) and it's about the same as Dynamat. It's $14 for about a 4x3' sheet and it's adhesive backed. There's a thread over in the audio forum on it here. I used a layer directly on the sheet metal, then put down the carpet padding, and put another sheet of the stuff on top of the carpet padding. It seems to work very well, and the truck is much quieter inside than it was originally. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
