    My carpet is just about toast. I'm wondering if anyone has heard of a rubber molded carpet? Sounds alittle easier to clean, and with 6 dogs, would be easier to sweep out. I used to own a 76 Dodge cornet. It was an old RCMP cop car. It had the molded carpet front and back. It was the cats a$$.

    Another option I was looking at is a buddy of mine sprays that "Armour Guard" stuff in truck beds. I'm wondering if I should get him to just spray the inside of my Blazer with the stuff and forget about matting or carpeting.

    What do you guys (gals) think??

    When I repaired my front floors I coated them with that roll on box-liner stuff. Its great now I can hose it out when it gets too dirty, and if I get water inside no big deal. Of course it does'nt look near as pretty as carpet, then again I am building my truck for pure function.

    I have rubber mating in mine. It will hopefully be replaced by Herculiner or Rhino lining this winter. If you want it when I take it out, it is yours for the price of shipping! Not sure when it will be out though.

  5. Hey Canuck, try a search on Duraliner, Herculiner, etc (or try just liner, lol) within the message forum. This question comes up a lot. I am probably going to do it in the next couple weeks.

    Well I have a spray in liner and I love it. It has gotten rid of a lott of the littl rattle and squeaks. Tyhe only issue I can see withe the rubber matting is that if you spray it out, you will trap water and encourage rust. Just my .02

    Cool, let me know when it's out. I'm not too worried about it right now, The carpet is still there, but dirty as hell.

    I herculined my interior about a year ago. It has held up great. The only problem I have with it is that the floorboard gets REAL HOT in the summer time b/c all of the insulation is gone. I ended up putting a rubber floor liner in b/c of the heat. Not to mention it's much quieter now too. Just my .02.

    I bought the custom fit rubber mats from JCW that were supposed to fit just right. They fit awful. Even though they were supposed to be molded, they were essentially stiff and flat.

    They are fairly think, and when I cut them up they made nice mats to put over the carpet I later bought.

    Other brands may be fine, but the JCW ones were awful.

    I bought a new mat 2 weeks ago from the GM dealer cheaper than LMC or JCW and didn't have to pay shipping. Some of them even come with a new insulating pad. I like mine, low maintenence.

    If you just Rhino-line it. there won't be any insulation.
