Genuine Parts Carpet Sets

My carpets are shot. I've been looking at replacement sets and found this one:

Name:	90carpetset-450.jpg
Views:	160
Size:	29.9 KB
ID:	24381

It looks exactly like the one I have with one difference: the factory (Exmoor?) set on my early 94 came with holes in the floor mat and plastic anchors to secure them to the floor.

Does anybody sell carpet sets that include the holes and anchors?

Anybody have a set without anchors? Do floor mats slide around while you drive?

It never had rubber. This carpet was dealer-installed, not factory as I originally posted.

I don't want rubber. I want carpet.

Don't know about the original question but I too was looking at the carpet for my ST.

I don't have water ingress issues (for the most part) and thought it would be a nice was to update the interior. Haven't decided between the Exmoor carpet or the rubber kit on the Craddock site. I don't want grey so that is my real hesitation on the rubber.

I would think you could have a local upholsetery shop do the mounts again in your new carpet kit. If it is what I think you are talking about I like them in my BMW, keeps the mats from sliding all over the place.

Maybe take your old stuff to them and see what they say. They may be able to make a new mat for cheap using your old one as a template. I had a shop re-work some fantastic lambs wool mats out of a Rolls for another car. I think it was less then $100 when it was all said and done.

YOu can get the exmoor in black. I know who makes it for exmoor if you are interested. It will only cost you the piece of rubber behind your fuse box.

you can get them out of my trash. I don't think you can get them anymore but some dealers and RN have sections. I have the piece behind the fuse box if you want to trade for the rubber version.

That's a pretty good idea.

I went ahead and bought the full set that RN sells, without the holes. Bought the inserts and fasteners, too. I'm going to see how it works without the fasteners. If it slides, I'll take it to an upholstery shop to have the holes put in properly.

Double sided tape at the base (close to the seat box) should work too. Let me know how you like the kit.

If you are doing this over the black insulation floor mats I would think they wouldn't slide much at all. But if you are doing it directly to the metal floor pan if could slide a bit.

Will you post up a photo when you get them in?

I'm planning to line everything with Dynamat first. Between the new Badger top and the carpet, I think I should have a fairly quiet cab.

I will post some photos when they are in the truck.

I lined my 90 doors and the tub with dynamat. I have a badger. The sound is better but it is still a soft top.

Another member used Quiet Car, similar application process to Linex. I like that it is a spray on and has a bit of a texture to it. The little Dynamat I have from stereo install applications is kind of gross. I think the Quiet Car is where I am headed I just want someone to go first. Texture might help hold the carpet in place.

Dont know if I'd listen to Barry- I believe he posted somewhere he wanted to powder coat his SD cage pink...

Dynamat can be removed. Try removing something sprayed on.

Chris,
Did you complete your dynamat and carpet install? Would like to see some pictures. Considering something similar since I am really starting to notice alot of heat coming through the floor. Currently I have some type of line-x or rhino liner sprayed throughout the interior with rubber floor mats and a load mat in back. Would like to cut down on the heat and noise in the cab if possible.

Barry - I can't offer you the rubber behind my fuse box, but could I bother you to for your source on black rubber Exmore style mats?

Thanks! - Jerod

I believe Badger also makes a carpet set for the Defender.
