No rush. Is that an older style tread?

The tires are called their "guard dogs" from treadwright.com. I had them on an 04 D2 and was very pleased with them but they are LOUD. Did well in snow and mud...threw alot of mud and grass around

I finally bit the bullet and bought the exmoor moulded matting kit. It's pretty heavy duty and I plan to get it in sometime this week. I went and picked it up from lucky 8 and they were nothing but a pleasure to do business with. I'll post up some pictures when I get it installed.

Well I installed the bulkhead and floor mats, I haven't put on the seat box trim yet though. So far I'm not that impressed. So far the noise isn't reduced that well. The floor mat fitting is pretty poor too. I have a lot of room around the shift boot, the passenger footwell doesn't fit that well and the area around the fuse box is very tight, so much that I have a hard time putting the cover back on. All and all for something that costs this much, the fit should be spectacular. This is also without even fitting the seat box trim yet. Click image for larger version

You can see the poor fitting where the floormat meets the bulkhead mat.

Very sloppy fit around where it should be fit snug to the shifter boot.

Bill did it a while back in his truck. Not sure he had all of the same headaches as you. It does look better than what it used to, though!
