    Curious if Toyota offers a moulded / direct fit, rubber / vinyl type floor covering that would allow the removal and replacement of the factory carpet in a 2nd generation TRD?

    I'd certainly entertain buying it, if Toyota or another reputable company offered one... Weather Tech perhaps?

    Anyone know of this or maybe has already done a floor covering swap with their trucks?

    Had this type of flooring in my old Ford Sportrac....best thing about the entire vehicle.

    I'm really surprised more companies don't offer this from the factory. Carpet in a vehicle just doesn't make much sense to me.

    I've definitely entertained this thought myself, found a few places google searching but I haven't been too serious into it yet. Sure would make cleaning out sand a ton easier.

    Weathertech or pulling the the carpet out and putting down something else are the only options I can think of.

    Weathertechs cover the majorty of the carpet that gets messy, unless you spill something.
    or
    You can remove the carpet and use bedliner or some kind of epoxy...

    I'd love to have a rubber or vinyl floor in my Tacoma. This feature was the main reason I almost bought an FJ.

    More leaning towards the weathertechs, easier and quicker to remove and clean up. After seeing Oswego's pictures from when he removed his carpeting to clean it I'm going to stay away from trying anything fancy in there. Too much stuff for me to cover up and not enough time.

    I contacted support today to see if this fits? They dont know, as my 2012 is too new and theyre system does not recognize my Vin Number. Our carpet is part number
    58510-04A50-B0 I have a 2012 double cab, pre runner tacoma. Anybody know if this vinyl kit is a sure fit?

    Hello Cain,

    your VIN is too new for our website to decode. That is the reason why the website says your VIN cannot be found. The vehicle came with carpet part number 58510-04A50-B0. If you are trying to switch to vinyl, we cannot verify if it will work.

    Regards,

    Lawrencia G.

    I had this in my ranger. Try finding one and see if it will fit. May have to reshape with a heat gun

    i dont see why it shouldnt fit. could you go to your dealership and ask to look at an older model tacoma (if they have one) to compare? or maybe another customer who is being serviced.
