So, now that the monstaliner is done, time to order the carpet for the cargo area. It's just going on the floor, not the wheel wells. In the picture from top to bottom let's just call them 1,2,3,4... Thoughts?

Another 'match the seats' vote.



I'm also: Black goes with everything.

Question: I'm not sure what color #4 is...is it another, lighter shade of grey, or a washed-out beige? I dunno why I can't discern it.

They all match with the seats and the seats are getting recovered with off white... I don't think off white carpet will work with 5 dogs... I worry about the black fading or bleaching with all the road salt that'll get tracked in... I don't want to do tan, last 3 cars had tan carpet and I'm sick of looking at it... So 1 of the dark greys... 1 or 2?

So what is gonna stay the same color then? The tan of your cargo side panels, or the darker brown accents speaker covers and stuff? I’d try to keep it from being 9 different colors...

Changing the speaker covers. Get rid of the darker brown. Keep the cargo panel covers so there will only be 3 colors. Light tan/off white, purple and the (possibly) charcoal carpet.

From a paint matching specialist's perspective, tan would look best. But you dont want that. Black will get dirty almost as fast. The black in my mustang showed all the dirt and mud.

I would go a medium charcoal color. Itll show dirt less and fade less than black, but isn't tan. In both lighting's above, I prefer number 2.

charcoal or black would be my pick as well. Then to make it all tie together I would get floor mats made in the color of your preferance. Doing it this way makes it so you can match anything, and also makes it easier to change your mind, if you decide to later, or get different seats etc... You can also have a "show" set of mats and a general driving around set. I do this with my mustang. All weather rubber mats for just driving, Custom made Hurst Logo mats for car cruise ins and shows.

Also if your going the ACC route I would not pay the extra for the mass backing. I thought it made it difficult to install for no reason. Instead I would get my own insulation and lay that out, then install the normal carpet over that. The last truck I did, I did the later and was much happier with the install and results

Yo MOM,
If one is Purple, see if it matches.
If one what @miesk5 one of the carpets? I did get one sample in purple but it's not right. Too loud... If u mean the speaker cover and ashtray i thought about that too and recovering the arm rests in a deep plum that would match the monstaliner but haven't decided. I think i like the thought of the clean uninterrupted line of the solid monotone color in the back, but i likely won't decide until i get the seat in and see how it all feels together.

Thanks for the input on mass backing @CrazyBRONCOguy... I was concerned this wasn't mass backed but hearing it made the install harder definitely will make my decision on the passenger area carpet easier. For the cargo area i wasn't going to put down a padding because in tops off weather i wanna be able to take the carpet out for weather (wet kayaks, light rain, cruddy camping gear... If i do any padding i might just take a bit odd regular carpet pad, back it with some thin vinyl and put it in the way back cargo area where the dogs will be. Something i can take up easily with the carpet. The passenger area will get nice padding tho. I like the idea of 2 sets of mats. Lol show mats... Oi vey... I guess i should start wrapping my head around the idea of "show truck" :haha'

Me thinks #2 as well.
(and looks good up against the sill plates also).
Thank u @White Dragon . That is an important point to me too. It's kind of the first impression u have when u open a door is the sill plate against the carpet... Kinda a the whole tone... Clean, classy and pleasing to the eye :thumbup
