Nice, reggie. I'm a strong advocate for doing outer and inner door skins because of exactly what you mentioned. I've also got multiple layers in the dash as well as in the center console.

Question to you guys. How long did it take to remove the carpeting and headliner. The trim I know is easy because it either snaps in to place or has screws and same with the seats. Obviously on an SUV you would need much more than either of your truck cabs, but I'm really just wondering on the headliner and carpet for different reasons (I need a new head liner and maybe carpet)

Every truck is different. On the Tahoe The headliner after you take off all the handles around the top and lights on the inner roof there might be a little glue up there but you should be able to pull it out through the rear.. As for carpet? Take everything out first about 1-2 hours of work..08 Z71 Avalanche Mods to date: K&N CAI,Hellwig Swaybars and End Links, Corsa Sport Exhaust, Superchips Programer,IPCW LOF & 3rd brake light and tails, AMI Gas door,Show Hooks and Door locks, Enkei Wheels, with Pirelli tires, StreetScene Bowties, Grant Steering wheel,Muth signal mirrors,SSBC Big Brake kit,Huskyliner Mug gards,Floor mats and Hood shield, McGard Lug nuts and locks, Bedrug, Cervini's Ram Air hood,35watt HID Fog lights, Sylvania bulbs all around ZXE's Highs and Lows, WhiteNight Back up lights,Sirius and HD Radio, SnugTop sitting on deck now Got a Softopper on now,Tempress Boat Hatches....

Ok, so the head liner isn't too bad. My thing is part of the head liner the fabric is separating from the foam backing. and there are some cuts and damages in it from the previous owner. To be honest it isn't that bad but its separating right at the windshield so I see it every day. I may just use some double sided tape to keep it up for now. I really need to get my leak in the roof fixed but I don't know where its coming from.

My interior B-pillar covers had to come off to remove the headliner ... and that meant removing torx bolts (for which I had no tox bits) since my seat belts are anchored to the B-pillar. Thus, I burnt an hour going to buy torx bits. The headliner for my extended cab took a good 20 mins to remove once I had the B-pillar covers off.
The tricky point that ate most of the time was the twin plastic push plugs that push into the rear of the roof (very technically, into the same roof portion into which the third brake light screws -- it's just the other end of the same metal hollow). I could find no way to get them out (you can't lever against the headliner because you'll crush it), but once I realized they shared the same/similar space as the third brake light I simply removed the third brake light and cut them off from inside the roof (behind the third brake light).
I DO NOT recommend that others do that. At the time I figured they would be about a buck, each, to replace. Nope. EIGHT bucks, each. How ridiculous is that???

Surreal that stinks and I will remember that. I'm lucky that my carpet is in sections rear and front from what I can tell. The seam is under the rear seats I found it while cleaning the truck. My headliner obviously isn't a priority but it will need to be done eventually I may practice with my girlfriend's car because her's is an absolute mess. Its quite literally hanging down and has massive rips and cuts.

Its one of those I'm doing one because i'm already doing the other. Since I'm gonna fix my head liner why not also do the sound deadening since it will have to be removed anyway. I'm assuming this also helps insulate the interior in turns of temperature as well.

for me, including removing my sound system too, it probably took an hour or so to remove everything, its not as quick as you think, but it aint horrible either, but for me, fortunately, i have absolutely NO electronics to worry about , yeah im cool like that...
other than the air bag sensor under the driver seat, everything is manual on the interior, so mine is really easy.
and on the headliner, I put about 3 layers of sound deadener, i did NOT want to skimp on that at all, it has a definite THUD when knocking from the roof and i love it!

ive come a long way now guys!
finally finished my door panels over thanksgiving break, along with the addition of my NEW Alpine SPR-60C component speakers to replace my 12 year old ones that were put in when my older brother had the truck.
heres my old setup, with the boston component set.
still could never really find any specs on this set since apparently theyre so old
moisture barrier still intact
moisture barrier removed
rattletrap extreme applied to door skin
it was really bright outside, but boston(left) alpine(right)
and the finished product, with flush mount tweeters installed ( just used a hole saw, where my old tweeters were mounted with two screw holes, for the new hole)
