I just cleaned my entire truck's interior last weekend. My step father used to do detailing so he showed me the ropes. You'll need a wet/dry vac though. I used a commercial carpet extractor. Same thing just alot more powerful sucking action. If your going to do carpets and seats try to find a liquid carpet cleaning product (maybe in a grocery store where they rent those carpet cleaning machines) Next follow the mixing directions in a bucket of water. Get a brush with hard bristles. I used a tire brush. Next commence scrubbing. For the panels scrub with one hand and have the vac in the other. Suck up the water as your scrubbing. For carpets and seats. I first sprayed them with some westley's bleche white and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then I just dumped some water on the floors and started scrubbing. When I was done each section I sucked up all the extra water. Obviously be careful around electronics. I have a 99 and don't think it's looked as good as it does now since it was new. I actually had a friend look inside my truck last night and asked me if I bought a new truck.
