Carpet kits

I have spent the evening searching the web, and old threads. Is exmoor the only current manufactor of carpet kits? I have read and was told the kits are poorly made. Is this true?
Rino-Liner or Line-X (wants $1000 bucks) is not an option, no one in town is willing to spray my interior. So carpet it is!

You can get rubber mats to cover the whole interior for much less than $1000 and carpet will just get wet and smell.

Whatever you do do not rhino line the interior. One of the previous owners of my truck did and I hate it. Everytime I look at it I want to find him and shake the sh*t out of him

Add some carpet style mats if you really want them.

There are factory parts that work. I got the TD5 seatbox cover and genuine mats, but I did not go with the bulkhead covering. Exmoor as noted has some nice stuff.

I purchase the Wright offroad kit from a company in Canada (cheaper than the RN ones "by" exmoor) RN wants around 900 for them I got them for around 700 shipped. These things are HEAVY. shipping wasn't cheap.
I searched all over for the best option and I think this is it. I have yet to install this yet but from what I have read they are hard wearing. and provide excellent sound deadening.
On the sound deadening front, I have installed CLD tiles to dampen vibrations. then the the Wright offroad mat should provide even better results.
Hope this helps (Probably raised more questions then answers)

Do what I did....I went to a custom car upholstery shop and had them make the carpets. I took out the seats, center console, jump seats, etc..and they did the entire truck. It was about $250 and they matched the color, added a car insulation mat to underside, and installed them. I have to say, they turned out better than the originals and fit better too. They even installed snaps so that the driver and passenger mats stay put. Could not be happier and the best part is that they got it done in a day.

Where is the Wright Off-road distributor located in Canada, Darby? I have a V8 so not sure their system will fit my '97 NAS D90. Cheers!

The NAS V8 transmission tunnel is the same as the 300tdi. So yes, it should fit.
