Re-carpeting a SW?

Has anyone recently re-carpeted their SW? Curious of the cost and how it turned out. I'd like to get away from the original "mat" system for something more permanent with Dynamat underneath. I received a quote of $1200 (for labor only) for installing custom carpet which seems unbelievably high.

You can dynamat it yourself... AB, RN and Others sell the carpet... Save the $1200 and do it yourself, or invite your local D90 guys over and provide beer and pizza

I carpeted mine myself - I took out the old carpet and had a local auto upholstery guy cut me a new set for under $500 (bound and padded). I "dynamatted" with a different brand and then spray-glued the new carpet on top.

It's a little tricky on top of/around the transmission tunnel but the rest is cake.

Color is not exact but came out great.

Support local. What atlcruiser is selling is also $100 cheaper (before shipping) than anything else posted so far.

The LRI Solutions sets on Urban Land Cruisers site look like they may all be RHD.

Not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Ended up going with the Exmoor full Vehicle carpet set. Will post pics once I get it in and installed. Went ahead and dynamat and dynalined the hood and interior this weekend, so hopefully after all of this is done it will be much quieter.

You may be right, but that would only affect the kick panels portion on the bulkhead that would be different, which I'm not sure I'd want to be carpeted anyway. Plus user Jefhuf here sells those kick panels made out of aluminum which look pretty nice.

Pictures.

Also - I used B-Quiet under almost everything. New carpet with padding. Foam in seat boxes and in console. SafariDust footwell trim with 1/4" rubber filling in gaps. LR Rubber mats up front and 1/4 inch thick rubber mat in back.

Noise and heat abated.

I just bought a roll of indoor/outdoor carpet in a dark brown color (about $75) & a can or 2 of the 3M medium duty trim adhesive ($15?) & it came out fine. Doesn't sound like it would, though, does it? LOL The key is to spend the time fitting it.
Don't try the double-sided ducttape. That didn't work.
