crew cab carpet

I need to replace the carpet in my '99 crew cab. Will the carpet out of an '05-'07 fit?

Re: crew cab carpet

yes, but you'll have a few holes in the carpet under the rear seat for the fold up seats and rack if you don't swap seats. I would sugest leaving the "new" carpet in the sun for a couple hrs. before installing it. That will help get wrinkles out and install better. While the carpet's out would be a good time to do some sound deadening.

Re: crew cab carpet

okay thanks. what would be good sound deadening material? DynaMat?

Also, are there holes that are predrilled and plugged in the floor board to mount the 2005 and up bench or do I need to drill them myself? Thanks again.

Re: crew cab carpet

There are holes in the carpet for the mounting of the 05+ seat. And there are bosses already in place for the bolts for the 05+ seats, all you have to do is drill and tap them, or do what I did buy drilling the holes, using a longer grade 8 bolt and nut from underneath, then tac weld the nuts. My seats didn't come with the under seat tray/rack thing so I have a hole or 2 that's precut in the carpet that you can only see when tha seats are folded up. If I come across one at a good price I'll put it in, if not oh well.

As for sound deadening I used Raamat, the stuff they used to have in the roll. they only sell their higher end stuff now that comes in squares. then I used insolite, and a open cell acoustic foam. here are some pics of my install.Truck pictures from trucks photos on webshots I forgot to take pics of the open cell foam, I was rushing towards the end because we had family comming in town. Here's where I got the insolite and acoustic foam.Closed Cell Foam, Padding, Minicel, Polystyrene Foam, Polystyrene Sheet

how much of difference did you seen in noise reduction? how long did it take to install? did it make a difference in carpet fitment with the extra thickness of sound deadening material?

Re: crew cab carpet

Sound reduction wise, it was very noticeable amount. But where it shines is at constant highway or crusing speeds. I didn't have time to do the doors and I was also thinking it would be best to wait to get a couple big dings knocked out of the drivers door before getting started on them. But from what I hear the doors are a major producer sound so I'm hoping once they're done there will be a big reduction in noise.

Time wise, it took me about 3 days from pulling the interior to having it done with help from a buddy who wasn't much help at all. He was there only a third of the time and didn't do much more than drink all my beer and slow me down with a flood of questions. But it was good company I guess... And a good part of one of those days I had a my nabor who's a carpet/funiture cleaner clean both old and new seats.

As for the carpet fitment, it was off a little but it's really not noticable by other people. It didn't help I did this durring in late Nov. when it was cold and wasnt able to warm up the carpet before tucking it in. With you being in TX I'm sure if you plan on doing this anytime soon you'll have no problems with fitment. Just let the carpet warm up in the sun for a bit, then lay it inplace in the truck with the doors closed for a while. The carpet will relax as it lays in place and the cab gets hot.

I can try to get some pics of the carpet fitment and holes if you would like.

Pressure washing the carpet will help get stains out but it distroys the nap. It looks like someone brushed it with a cat brush. That wouldn't bother some people but it would drive me crazy. I used to be a carpet installer for 8 years and I guess I've leaned to be alittle anal when it comes to details.
