    Has anyone pulled the carpet in an '05 yet? I don't really think that carpet in a truck goes well to begin with. The FJ comes with a rubber flooring like I think the Taco should. I'm curious about getting rid of the carpet for some sort of rubber or perhaps maybe using a bed liner?

    Idk, just an idea that popped into my head.

    Yep. Worked well for me but it's definitely noisy now.

    There's some padding glued to the floor under the carpet. It's a pain to scrape up but worth the trouble if you're going to use bedliner in there.

    Noise would be an issue. Wonder if I could add some sound deadening and somehow get some rubber flooring to fit into the truck.

    I have the factory rubber mats already, I just know that with time the carpet in my truck is going to become trashed.

    I did it to my 2005 Tacoma before I traded in for my 07. It took me about a week to fully do a project like this. I completely took out the carpet, and scraped the sticky stuff underneath (what seemed to be sticky stuff). If you got the talent do it guy, I did it and it came out great. Six months later there was so much rattling in the truck I traded it to someone. I used a type of bedliner like stated above; probably should of went a different root. I like my clean carpet now:) best of luck to you.
