Carpet To Vinyl Accomplished

Well as some of you might have known I've been looking for some vinyl floor in my ranger because my carpet was just too hard to clean. Well I finally got ahold of some thanks to ScottB and got it in today.

I went out to my buddies house this morning and we started getting out the seats and all the trim. Well all went according to plan until we got up to this point.
Everything but one seat belt buckle bolt.

Well We spent 2 and a half hours working on one bolt that we stripped. We shot it with PB blaster, then tapped it and it stripped again, so finally we busted out the trusty dremel and cut the bolt top off so I could have seats in my truck atleast by the time I had my final.

This is halfway through, we had to cut up my carpet to get the bolt out easier. But my carpet was alot worse then I thought.

My grandparents had the truck so we found some "aged" potato chips in the jumpseats trim. Provided by us little grand children haha

And finally all put back together.

I love it compared to the carpet. Plus it looks really good with the tan suprisingly.

And all in time to get to my final.

With the trouble we had it took us 6 hours of on and off working. Its not that hard, just research and ask questions before you start. I really like it but I gotta realign it a little, its off to the drivers side about half a inch and It looks odd.

The last pic is how my truck normally looks, books and school stuff in the back under the jump seats. I dont think having stuff in the truck would count as messy. The top pic is because of what we were doing.

I wouldn't buy a Ranger unless it had vinyl flooring. That was one of my demands when searching for the Ranger I now own...

you may reconsider that when you have a pile of ice under your pedals haha. plus it seeps under the trim and then you got ice and grit in everything...I still use floor mats for the winter just to catch all the water and junk. they don't slide around at all either

So far no Ice, but I wipe the water up with a rag every night after school. So far just salt residue.

I may want to consider this or something. Spit bottles and coffee mugs turning over onto the carpet that covers the transmission hump=fail, and is a PITA to clean. Anybody know of a rubber floor mat or something that can cover the transmission hump and go down to the floor mats?

But the trucks looks good man! Nice and clean looking.

I just transferred my vinyl flooring from my red cab into my black cab and I really like it so far. I still want to get some good rubber floor mats that wont slide around.
There is a little difference between the 2-door extended cab flooring and the quad cab flooring ... has anyone here had to deal with this issue before?

i've heard some guys say that it isn't something you should have a great deal of trouble with. I have some F-150 Rubber mats (they're a little longer than the Ranger ones and the only downside is they say F-150 on them) would they slide on the flooring? i believe i can get my hands on some and if im not doing anything crazy this weekend i will put serious thought into ripping it out.
