    Looking for something to cover the front to the rear footwells. About 1/4" to 1/2" thick. I though LMC had it but I only see the vinyl one in the catalogue:confused:

    I used a really tough mat used on horsebox floors. Grippy on one side and channeled on the other, prob an inch thick though.

    I guess I should have said molded. I want it to cover the hump and extend all the way up the footwells. Basically cover what molded carpet would.

    Well maybe it was 1/8 to 1/4;) I've seen the vinyl and I think a rubber based mat would suit me better. Anyway it needs to cover like carpet to the rear footwells. I'm planning on a spray-on bedliner for the rear and up the sides to the cap.:laugh:

    Your only shot at that is gonna be to custom form something with heat, etc... Believe me, I checked into it, their is nothing "molded" available other than the thin stuff...

    the only thing not covered on mine is the tranny hump, and that will be Herculined anyway... I'm very, very pleased with the truck mat thruout, front and back... I just bought the huge "universal" rectangle, and cut to fit...
