Amen brother. I like the feel of carpet too when I work in the truck. The funny thing is I had floor mats for the cab, but got rid of them because stuff kept sliding around. Now I want them back! I picked up some husky liners here on the site used and they cover up whatever spots and dirt marks are visible in the front, and the center console covers up the rest. I stitched up a small tear and patched some cigarette burn holes in the carpet. Unless I pointed them out, the average viewer won't even notice them, which is all I want from this carpet.

I may have to replace mine pretty soon. It's taken a beating between, mud, cigarette burns, pop and just about anything else you can think of. After hearing how cheap you got that for I might just have to check the jy around here. Looks good too. I agree. I don't like vinyl.

Good Job.
I was thinking of installing carpet in my truck. Was the installation difficult? Did replacement over vinyl flooring cause any problems with reinstallation of center console or rocker panel covers?
Did you check with ford motor company for price of new carpet? What about aftermarket carpet?
Thanks in advance for response.

I took it after removing it to a carwash and pressure washed the majority of crap out of it. It's still stained in places, but gets the job done. I left the vinyl floor in and placed the carpet on top of it, which has caused a few problems. One day I'll probably unbolt everything again and redo the interior, but I'll wait till this current carpet is trashed.

I love my vinyl floor, I drilled two holes in my floor board and then inserted rubber plugs, then all i have to do is spray it out and try and keep the spray away from my dash.

WOW another person that knows nothing about new vynal floors...

it might be vinyl but there is still gute(insolation) underneather. that insolation retains moister like a *****... if you did what i think you did the water is underneath the vinyl and is soaked into the gute... btw when gute stays wet from the moistor the floor rots out extreamly fast i would never advise what you just did...
