New Flooring

So, i am getting tired of cleaning the floor of my truck. i used to work at a dealership, and they had some trucks that had vinyl flooring. i am not talking about where you can buy some sections online, but the entire floor was vinyl. does anyone know where i might be able to do this to my floor. i want to take the carpet out completely.....can you realize how easy it would be to clean the floor......man, just turn the hose on and your good.

I know some guys that pulled out their carpet, drilled a couple of drain holes in their truck and covered the floor in bed liner.

Not the best suggestion, but a suggestion.

Even the modern trucks with just vinyl flooring have tons of sound deadening/thermal insulation under that mat. Cat converter will fry your feet, a/c will struggle to cool, and worse yet if you hose it out anyway, it will trap and rust floors, fog windows etc. You can sweep it out with a small broom, and then use a large wet towel to clean without letting to much run under the door step plate trim. Older trucks did have mats directly on top of sheetmetal with just a firewall pad for insulation, but you won't find them like that now. My 03 Jeep Wrangler had no pading in the footwells, but plenty in the tunnel, when you went to remove tunnel carpet there was a big warniing label under there stating not to operate without floor covering.

EDIT: get some husky floor liners, if you can't keep your feet confined to these, just remove carpet and drill some drain holes like said above.

07TRD: I am in the lazy division, i founded the Carolina Alliance and part of our creedo is that we're lazy and unmotivated. If you're gonna sport that Carolina Alliance tag under your handle you better be lazy too. If we find out that you are motivated and a hard worker thats grounds for dismissal from the Alliance
