Tyler, I hope you dont have to run any wires in your cab because since you have the liner its permanent and cant get it up.

Alright well seems like alot of you are very skeptical about this project and some of you are all for it(thanks for being positve haha) Well I have done it. I have put in about 13 hrs thus far. Currently the panels and seats are still out of the truck(actually stuffed in the back in my shell). I have put down two solid coats of the stuff and i gotta say...i love it! its definately the most useful thing for my lifestyle that i have done on my truck. I called herculiner and a few other brands, told them what i was doing and asked about the smell, they said i would have no problems if i do the proper venting for the first 72 hrs. I had to shut the truck up today because i went out and when i came back i was excpecting the smell to knock me on my ass when i opened the door but no more harsh than a fresh painted room. Really i'm not concerned at all about this. I will post all the pictures once the project is complete and throw in a little "how i did it" too. Plan is to let it vent and then put the truck back together tuesday. Thanks for the interest guys.

P.S I would just run the wires through the plugs pop a panel and hide them just like i would any other time?

some products never cure completely, pay a few extra buck and buy rhino or another high end product, it will only smell funny till it cures. 2 days in the sun well ventalated should do the job, goodluck

That's awesome Tyler! Glad to here the smell is wearing away. I'm looking at doing this eventually; though vinyl would work for me too. Either way, this carpet has to go. If you can, I'd love to see some pictures of how this has gone for you! Or, a picture of the final product would suffice. Way to push on bro!

Default Herculiner in my cab!

Alright, well here are most of the pictures from the project. I am sorry for the wait, I've just been busy this past week. I have to admit I was very worried about this project and went back and forth with it. Now though I realized it was a great idea. Haha. It turned out awsome as far as I'm concerned. Total hours into it around 19, but well worth it. I know the biggest worry was probably the smell, yet after almost a week of curing the smell is 90% gone I would say. I prety well anticipate it to completely disapear with a few more days.


After removing the seats.


There was a padding down that had to go. Just used a razor and some WD40 and it came right off.


After the padding was removed. This was the "O $+!7" point for me.


All I can say is pre work is a must. I probably put in 3 hours on the prep alone. Atleast just sanding and cleaning. The scotch pads they include are a complete joke(atleast I didnt think they were doing much) I poured Acetone into the scratch pad and went over a section real quick the sanded the hell out of it and made my way around the truck. I sanded until everything was nice and dull. I took a cloth and wiped everything down with Acetone and allowed it to dry.


Alright, now my buddy asked me why tape everything off(around the edges) if your not gonna be able to see it anyway. My reasoning was just to keep it clean, I didnt want to go crazy and get everything messy. At first I hand tightned the seat bolts in and taped off around them, first coat sucked doing it like this. I recomend just cutting out tape and placing it over the holes. I did this on round two and not only did it make it faster it also made it easier.


For whatever you may use Herculiner for, just remember the first coat sucks. This stuff rolls on just like paint and the first coat is just that base coat. I let it dry for 2 hours just to be safe.


After the second coat. Nice and "full" coat. I layed it on pretty thick for this.


Here is a close up.


I've got a few more pictures I gotta upload and throw on here, but the little stuff is all your not seeing. Panels went back in like they were supposed to and matched up nice a flush. I ran the wires so that they were nice and hid. The only exception is the wires running down the center. Not enough slack, so just put a plastic coating on it. Also keep the Herculiner handy, I went back to put the panels back on and I missed a few spots and had to touch it up.

yes those are great, I love it, I did this to my ranger , but I had it professionally done, it cost me nothing and I enjoy it, I also just ordered me a full rubber flooring and took out my carpet just for some softness over the rigid floor liner, looks good though, It makes me proud when I see someone just as anal as I am doing it right.

Truck is too nice to mess it up. I was going to have it prof. done, but 1. I love DIY projects, 2. Too expensive for me.

it seems like this would introduce alot more road noise into the cab compared to having a carpet.
