    I have searched and can't see if there is a thread on a DIY carpet removal for the 2nd gens. I see a lot of people on here have done it, just wondering if someone could post a link to a thread, (if there is one) on the carpet removal process, and how easy it is. Thanks

    Seats pretty much just unbolt? Then after all of that is out it just pops out? Or are there clips? Thanks

    Disconnect battery, wait a couple of minutes, disconnect wiring harnesses, loosen bolts, remove seats.

    thats what most people think, i did research when working on my blazer and apparently there were capacitors that stored power for the air bags.

    to be on the safe(er) side id disconnect power and ground and touch ends together, then wait at least a half hour...

    Anybody else done this? A project I was going to tackle over the weekend. Carpet looks horrible and yanking it out and power wash sounds like a good idea.... no?

    Pulling the carpet isn't hard.

    I found it easier to also pull the back wall panel, and the side door sill pieces. They are held in with plastic plugs and just pull off - no tools required.
    (access cab, double/reg cab may not need this)

    Unbolt the seats, and the center console and the carpet will come right out.

    i was just about to start a thread on this, cause I'm also doing mine this weekend, anyone have any suggestions other than a bedliner type material or plastidip that'll do well as an all weather type floor?

    FWIW as the member 06SR5Canada said, to touch the battery leads together ... that won't discharge a capacitor, b/c the actualt capacitor circuit wont make a "circuit" And if you were able to discharge the capacitors in the airbag circuit, once a cap is shorted out, it pretty much loses its charge instantly (unless it is insanely large) and cap's gather a small amount of charge over time, so waiting a half hour, won't help.

    Damn that was long, for no reason.
