Carpet

Post by gump1376 »

So I'm looking for a new carpet for my bumpside (67-72) crewcab and can only find them for the 73+. Are these the same carpet sets between the dentside (73-79) and bumpsides or are they different?

Thanks,
Nate

I believe the 73-79 crewcab carpet kits will fit. From my experience all of them require at least a little bit of trimming. I can't say with 100% certainly on a crewcab but on a std cab they'll fit.

Stock interiors is where I've ordered the last few sets.

I was going to suggest stock interiors as well. I purchased the carpet kit for my 64 Plymouth station wagon from them. It did need some trimming to get it in there, but that's how they intend it to be.

That is an awesome site! Does anybody have any pics of their carpet to show? Is it flat or is it more of a shag? The carpet that was put in mine by a previous owner was a shag...I'm also looking to replace eventually.

If you look at the pics of my 73 regular cab build thread the carpet in that is a "stock replacement" cut pile which is a fairly thin(short) and tight weave and is an ACC carpet. If you order the "Essex" version that is a more plush weave. I don't have any pics of the Essex but I will in a few days as that is what I ordered for the 77 CrewCab.

Honestly, commercial carpet is WAY nicer stuff at the same price (or sometimes even less) than "automotive" carpet. The only problem is if you get some decent heavyweight stuff it's hard to make it look like a stock molded carpet. A lighter weight carpet seems to really lay out nicely. I know a lot of high end builders use commercial carpet, but they have all the resources to form it and add backing, etc.

I bet that carpet wore like iron!

It was good stuff. This time around though I'm just going to get a kit from stock interiors. I think I am going to go a different route with the insulation though. The stuff that I used in the Plymouth was a nightmare to cut.

On the crewcab I'm not sure what I'm going to do for insulation under the carpet. I ordered the kit with the "mass backing" which helps but I'd prefer some extra heat/sound insulation. Normally I'd use dynamat or some generic version, but since they put some kind of bed liner stuff on there I'm not sure I can get it stuck down well enough. I've got a few pieces to try and see, but if it doesn't work I'm not sure what my next plan is. I REALLY do not want to strip the bedliner off, that is a dirty, nasty job.

I purchased a carpet kit from Stock Interiors and think it looks pretty nice, especially for the price. Carpet kit with extra backing, kick panels and lower door carpet for $185. I have not installed it yet. Hopefully next week after running wire to the subwoofer and seat heaters. I purchased insulation on Amazon called Kilmat. it is 80 mil thick. This stuff bends like an asphalt shingle so I put them in by my water heater and boiler to warm them up. It makes them much more pliable to mold. The adhesive is rated a 10 on the yacka-pucky scale. Be sure it is in the right place because once it is there, it is there. It probably would adhere to a rough surface like a bedliner. Just be sure it is not oily and it should be fine. I got one box and did the inside of the doors and full floor on a "79 regular cab.
