    I am wondering what kind of rubber people have used to cover there floor as an alternative to LineX or a normal carpet. I want to go this route b/c I feel I can't justify fixing the body too much on my Blazer but would like some sort of flooring instead of just bare metal.

    Searching I think i found one thread with no real answers, so my question is does anyone have pics of what type of rubber they used, where they got it and instaled?

    Thanks

    Stock rubber mat here. Is came on the base models, carpet was an upgrade. I leave the top off and park on an incline so the rain can run out.

    The PO put some kind of rubber down and screwed it to the floor. He didn't do the best job but it looks ok. and its Super easy to clean. Just take the garden hose or pressure washer to it. I'll try to Get some pics for you.

    The CUCV's came with the rubber floor mat. When I bought my CUCV, the mat was in pretty bad shape, so I sprung the $170 or so LMC wanted for a new one. Note they can trap water underneath just like carpet, so if you're in rust country you could be in trouble. I POR15'd underneath mine and repainted the floor 'fore putting the mat in, so I'm not too worried here in CA :D

    It *is* nice not having to worry about getting mud and crap in the carpet though.

    i used rubberized under coating, you can get it at any paint shop or auto parts store. comes in aerosol cans, for anywhere from 3-8 bucks a can. took 5 cans to do the whole inside of my blazer, floor, walls, over the rails with the top off. all i have to do is wash the mud out now. hope this helps. dont have any pics of it right now, just did it yesterday, but i have put it on several rigs before.

    I used duplocolor liner after gutting and stripping the insides. then I follower with Dynamatting from Pep Boys. then I hit the local uphulstry shop for rubber matting front to rear. over that I installed and new front carpet. It is a 6.2 and is really Quiet in her after all that. I would invest in the matting from pepboys and just some generic rubber matting in there. keeps the noise down.

    Thanks for the pics, looks like what I will try and track down, seems alright, and probally cheaper than getting anything from LMC up to Canada. (Plus beats fixing a rusty floor that will probally get replace soon by just a cab)

    Thanks

    Forget rubber. Go to Canadian Tire, pick up a box of Hippo Liner for $50 and do the bed too! Cheap, easy, and durable!
