    ya ive never been a fan of carpet it always gets nasty is hard to clean and holds odors and water. just seems like spend $50 on a gallon of liner and a half day slappin it on would be worth it... drill a few small drain holes and u could just wash it out with the hose. seems like it would serve as a good rust preventative also on the floorboards instead of having 15 year old wet carpet just sitting there possibly rusting my floorboards.

    immediate problems id see is the floor is not a flat surface, its probably corrugated and has plenty of indentations and raised portions. itd look crappy if it was exposed.
    washing it out would be bad because theres still plenty of electronics in the cab that are not water friendly. the carpet is pretty think (with padding) so thered be a gap from the bottom of the plastics to the new floor. insulation would also be a problem and the floor would get exceptionally hot or cold and the cab wouldnt retain its temperature as well. also, im sure theres wires and stuff that would have to be extended and moved so they didnt run in a heavy traffic area.

    bottom line, probably nor your best move. buy some walmart floor mats for $15 and save the hassle

    Removing the crap under the carpet is a pain. It'll take you some time but it's worth it.

    Durabak, and it's holding up well inside the truck. I only used a thin coat to protect the metal but it could obviously be applied thicker for more sound deadening. It's a roll-on solution available in a ton of different colors with UV protectants.

    Why not just fix the leak problem, replace the carpet and install some Husky Liners? So not to de value the truck?

    dont really see some nasty ass carpet adding value to my 95.. just though rhino line would be a easy install and even easier clean up than carpet especially during hunting season when im in and out tracking mud and clay all over the truck..

    Try it, if you don't like it just buy an aftermarket supplier of floor carpet and some of those Husky liners or whatever they are that are heavy duty and cover everything. Does Toyota make a vinyl floor? Had an S-10 with it, floor was great!

    3 things to think about.

    The floor pan is 2 pieces. There are tons of gaps that will collect dirt and crap over time if you do not fill them up with something.

    Plenty of exposed wires to shield/protect.

    Number one. Road Noise!

    I too have thought about doing something similar. The route i am taking is to spray some light adheasive to hold down a sheet of plastic. Then use a can of foam insulation to fill the voids in the flood for a smooth finish and then a few coats of truck bed liner. Using the plastic on the bottom will still allow me to peel up the sides if I need to get to any wiring.

    I used the hecuiner! i think the reason it looks so shiny is beacuse of it was freshly rolled on and also the way the light was hitting it.
