Brothers Trucks Carpet Installation

03/01/2016

We started by unbolting everything that sat on top of the carpet. We then cleaned the floor and routed our speaker wires neatly down the kick panels.

For the extra bit of quiet, we opted to use the factory-style soundproofing from Brothers. It came precut and ready to install. We did a test fit to make sure everything was OK.

The only cutting necessary was for the gas pedal stools, seats, dimmer switch, and seatbelt holes. After all the holes were cut, we started in the center and glued the tarpaper down with 3M’s spray adhesive.

With the tarpaper glued in, we installed the layer of close cell foam provided with the kit. Then the cut-loop carpet kit from Brothers was slipped into place.

Again we had to cut the holes for the gas pedal stools, seats, dimmer switch, and seatbelts. Make sure the carpet is in the right position before cutting anything. Using an awl we located the holes to be cut.

We installed the sill plates first to keep the carpet from shifting while we reinstalled the rest of the interior.

To protect our investment we also installed these floor mats from Brothers. With less than a day’s worth of work, our truck was so quiet it seemed to ride smoother.
