all i would do is pull the seats out then the carpet, then get a shampooer and shampoo that unit, or you can take it all out and put some spray in box liner on the floor so that next time you sink your truck you dont have to worry about the carpet, just an idea.

you cant just put spray in bed liner in the newer trucks theres wires all over under the carpet i hate that answer that everyone says that next time look how deep the water is so you dont fill your truck up

like i said in your other trhead....completely gut that interior. There's no way to reuse that carpeting. it'll never dry and the mildew has already started. replace seats, seat belts, carpeting, padding underneeth the carpet.

Were you 'TrucksGoneWild'ing your truck?

Run 'em above the headliner would be pretty sweet.

Did you expect him to go swiming in a mud hole???

Should he of rented a crane to hoist him over the hole so he could measure the depths of it???

Yea I did that a w hile back.

Take out the seats and carpet, clean and dry them. Take off the door panels and make sure there is no water in them also. I'd replace the carpet ASAP it will never be the same...
