All...I'm new here, but thought I'd share a few pics of the weekend project: new carpet & some sound deadening on the floor.

Stripped (see where someone/something pissed in the passenger footwell at some point in the past):

So, I scrubbed the floor off and laid down some RAAMMat BXT 60:

And some Ensolite sound-absorbent foam over that:

Laid down the carpet & reinstalled the crappy seats:

New seats or recovered seats are next...

Anyway...just wanted to share...

thats cool dude, looks better than it did.

did that sound deadener make a big difference in road noise? i need to put new carpet in my truck again, i got a rip in mine around the shifter boot and was just wondering if it was worth the money.

I already had the sound deadener stuff in the doors & in the sides & rear of the x-cab. Made a *huge* difference just there. I haven't had a chance to drive it since I did the floor - still have to get the passenger seat & seat belts in.

Sound deadener works great, & theres more than one brand out there. I found & used FatMat, much lower in cost.

Agreed - lots of options out there. I had tried the "Peel and Seal" material previously, but picked raammat based on my limited budget and this comparison test:

Here's an update...
1. New carpet
2. New seat skins
3. New stereo (temporary mount)
4. New speakers
5. Custom speaker & tweeter mounts (my first experience with doing fiberglass)
6. Dash & other panels painted with spray-on bedliner ('bout half done)

Pretty happy so far. Just have to finish the mount for the stereo, and finish painting the interior panels for now...

Those are reference speakers right. Fukin rock dont they! I had a pair of 4x6 kappa plates, best speakers in my opinion. I like the mounts ant the seat!
