    Molded Industrial Polyvinyl Floor Mat.

    Anybody have one? LMC says it will outlast the rubber ones and I am looking for reccommendations on this or any other brand for that matter. I'm putting sound deadner / insulation underneath it.

    So if anybody has taken the vinyl or rubber route I'd like to know some opinions.

    Thanks.

    I have the LMC MIP, and it is great. The only advise I would pass on is lay it out on a clean dry driveway for a few hours in the hot sun. It is very heavy material and difficult to handle when cool. Heat it up and it will lay right down and look like a factory installation.

    Have you had any problems with moisture, rust underneath it? What do you have underneath it?

    It came with a insulating pad that went under the front floors. I haven't had any moisture problems yet, it hasn't rained here in a long time! I don't get in much water at all anyway. My Blazer didn't know what rain was till I bought it and shipped it to Texas. Here at home, you can't find a Blazer that doesn't have rust. I bought mine in Armagosa Valley, Nevada and it had absolutely no rust at all. This Blazer had spent it's whole life in the desert, from Yuma to Indian Springs. I took the carpets out and not even any surface rust. None, no where!
