    Anyone done this? How much was it? worth it? I want to replace my carpet with rhino liner.... i do not believe that carpet in a four wheel drive truck is very logical or practical so it will be coming out! any experience?

    It will make the truck hot and very loud. It has been done to numerous vehicles. Many people in the Jeep community do this.

    idk? pretty expensive i would think because my local place charges around 500 just for the bed...and inside would be harder for then and more cramped

    even if the holes at the bottom that let it breathe are cut out as well? I dont see how it would make it hot....or loud? i though it would provide a thicker sound barrier than carpet...

    Carpet muffles the sound a lot more than the rhino liner does. You'd gain some benefit of things hitting the floor, but the road noise would be horrific. Think about it... movie theaters don't rhino line the walls, they put foam & fabric on them. Same principal applies to the carpet!

    Yup...It's a hard surface so it allows vibration...not a cloth/fiber surface that will dampen. IDK about great heat...I guess it'll hear up a bit more from the exhaust under the floor...and maybe from the sun heating it up.

    You can get a can of Herculiner and roll it on anywhere you want it. It's about 100 bones for a kit (including rollers and stuff) made to coat a bed...I'm sure that'll be enuf for a cab floor.

    It's definitely loud, but then my truck would be even with more insulation. I used Durabak and am happy with the results. Rhino lining could be applied much thicker and could result in a decent amount of sound deadening over the roll-on stuff I used.

    I scraped/cut/xylened the glued-on insulation off of the floor before applying the Durabak.
