Default Replacing Interior Carpet w/Waterproof Material?

I want to get rid of my 2001 ranger's carpet like so many others. However I want something SOLID, waterproof, that I could get in there with a sponge and scrub it.

I come into contact with filth of all kinds on a pretty regular basis. Our second to last dog was chronically motion sick when she was younger. I deal with roadkill salvage, butchering game, and taxidermy so I get into my truck with blood, sawdust, fiberglass, mud, and god knows what else on my boots. Our current dog LOVES nothing more than to get absolutely filthy at the river, lake, or beach. And last...the dog hair. Oh my god the dog hair. No amount of rubber glove rubbing, slicker brushing, sticky rolling, or vacuuming is ever going to remove 15 years of sheltie and collie hair. I've kept my seats, door panels, ceiling, dash, etc pristine but the carpet really is a total loss. They've never made a good throw-down rubber mat for the backs of extended cabs. Having a hard floor in the truck like I do in my home would make vacuuming pet hair out a breeze.

What can I do about this? Are the pre-molded vinyl floors from my only option? I thought about sheet vinyl and a heat gun over a pad, but I don't have the experience to know if it would look ok or be less expensive than the pre-molded floors.
