warning: the most i'm gonna have to offer on this board, for a while, is aesthetic mods.

so i got my truck used, and the carpet was nasty. so i decided to replace the crappy stock GRAY carpet with a NEW BLACK carpet.

i went with ACC Mats Carpet for like $209 from www.1aauto.com. it comes in 4 pieces - just like stock except larger (you have to cut it down in spots).

biggest problem was that the rear section didn't come with insulation -- i was able to get some free carpet insulation from a carpet store in town....i just cut it to fit & attached it with some 3M Super77 spray adhesive.

Results -

took all day to install the carpet with the dynamat, with 2 friends helping.....mostly because we were playing it by ear.

2 years later, the carpet is just as good & black as it was the day it came. i'm very satisfied with it.

the dynamat was WAAAAAAAAY overpriced but does work fairly well.

best part: new carpet = new car smell.

Looks good! Your carpet looked clean compaired to mine. Someone had a box of cat litter spill in there and never cleaned it up. Mixed with some water and melted into the carpet. Theres cigarette ashes everywhere, spilt motor oil and tons of candy/gum rubbed into it. Cant wait till I get money to spend on it.
