Replacing your car’s carpet is a great way to bring back some of the showroom freshness to a tired interior. With a little planning, organization, and the right tools, it’s a job that one or two people can easily finish in a day.
First, buy carpet for your truck. There are a variety of dealers and vendors who will sell you carpet that fits your particular model of truck. Select the color you want, then pick a day for your installation. When it's time to begin, unroll the carpet and let it sit our for several hours or a day or so. This eliminates wrinkles that the carpet may have from having been rolled up or folded in a box.
Take out interior trim. Sill plates that extend along the door are usually fastened with Phillips screws and are easily removed. Most interior panels, like kick panels, pull off with a sharp tug, or you may need to get behind them with an awl or flat putty knife and pry them out. Be sure to keep any fasteners together so you don't lose them. If your truck has a center console, this is time to remove it. You'll usually find tabs for fasteners around the base of the console.
