    I guess this would be more of a preference thing or how you use your truck. For us, my wife and I love to spend time the truck and the carpet is nice, especially for those longer trips when the shoes start to come off (or in flip flops). In fact, I take out my rubber floor mats and put in carpet ones when we do take those longer rides, as it adds even more comfort. In addition to the comfort, the carpet/pad does a great job in helping to keep the road noise down and put some distance between vibration/bumps and your feet.

    What are some of the reasons you are thinking as to why you're considering this?

    Well i think ill like the look and durability. as far as road noise it shouldn't make to much of a difference also it doesn't stain and easy to clean.
    I dont know just seemed like a good thought. So any opinions you have are very welcome.

    It will make a difference with road noise. The is sound deadening padding under the carpet that if removed and not put back in will cause you to "hear" the road EXTREMELY well......

    Pointless without a drain plug so you can hose it down. Try cleaning your spray-in or roll-on bedliner with a rag and you'll find out just what an insane idea that is. Mine hoses down fine and a scrub brush works well, too, but using soft material like rags for wipe-down is a non-starter. The noise issue is a very real one, too.

    Never hurts to ask; in fact, it's questions like these that help others who don't ask but are thinking about it. You wouldn't believe how many threads that have come across in which someone did something and then was trying to undo it.

    Smart people ask questions when they don't know something. Stupid ones don't. Thus, you don't look stupid for asking questions...
