    Some of the blazer's used to come with a rubber floor instead of carpet. I know new carpet is available after market but can you find that rubber anywhere?

    LMC does indeed sell it. Not bad, for $170 or so; I put such a thing in my CUCV to replace the rather nasty one that was in it. Donno that it's show quality restoration :haha: but it doesn't mind getting mud and Dr Pepper in it, that's for sure. :deal:

    Rubber floor is the only way to go. Who's bright idea was it to put carpeting in cars, let along trucks?! I don't get it. I ordered my '97K2500 with rubber floor. My '86 c10 is rubber floor, the K5 is Line-X!
    My Favorite is the infamous Chevy Z71 Package, dunno if it's still this way, but for a long time it was, if you wanted the Z71 "Off-Road" package (consisted of: Bilstein shocks,skid plate,leather wrap steering wheel(?!),"off-road" jounce bumpers, and a "Off-Road" tuned stabilzer bar), BUT you HAD to have carpeting as well. What? I want the off-road package which forces carpeting on me? Who's putting the marketing packages together...come on GM....


    Sorry for the ranting hijack......

    I believe ChevyDuty (http://www.chevyduty.com) sells the same thing.

    There's a million types of those.
    Almost any Truck Accessory store can get those for you.
    Bushwacker is the most famous for them.

    Do a google for "Fender Flares"
