How many folks out there passed on carpet? I never thought about having the carpet removed until I saw a gentleman talk about it on a Tremor FB page, now I’m thinking it makes a lot of sense. Even if you never plan to take your truck out to the woods or beach or anywhere muddy (haha) the vinyl floor would clean up so mich easier, and let’s be honest most of us use some form of rubber mats to save the carpet anyway....

hmmmm

I personally like my Weather Tech floor pans ( mats ) I believe the carpet is a good sound insulator and I can remove the mats and use my light pressure washer on them. Plus in a few years if they look bad can be replaced.

My work vans have the vinyl floors and it gets loud in there going down the freeway but its not comparable to an XLT, Lariat or high line SD. They do look shitty after a few seasons. But nobody cares its a work van.

Pretty much same feedback as Papa, I only leave the carpet for acoustics/sound, and like you said I wind up covering the parts prone to wear with weather mats, etc

Vinyl floors and weather techs here. My experience with weather techs or any digital fit liner, they still let fluid underneath and along the edges. So vinyl floors makes that easier to clean.

Did you order it that way or change it out after the fact?

i have carpet in my F150 and have weather tech mats and i hate having the carpet always dirty and wet and weather tech mats are good enough and with my F350 i went no carpet so i don;t have to spend $200 on weather tech mat to not work and destroy the carpet and the vinyl floor is easy to replace if you can put a few hours into doing it .... i also hating have carpet in my jeep always causes rust ... so i bed liner them but that just what i do. also being military wearing boots all the time and always have shit and crap on my boots and don't look and get in the truck ... so it is personal preference i believe.

Yes, it is easier to clean but you may have more road noise but i have a nice sound system to get rid of road noise so the easier cleaning is my vote over having to get a carpet cleaner in there every month to clean them, also the weather tech mats start to curl up after a while and don't cover the surface 100% like brand new and that after a year of every day use. t

Some one posted recently that they got the carpet delete, and the vinyl on the floor looked awesome.

I ordered mine without carpet and am glad I did. Run dirt roads every week as well as do a lot of dog training and hunting. I do have Husky mats front and back, but even though the mats (WeatherTech included) cover as much as they do...it's so much easier to clean.

I ordered mine with carpet delete option. I guess to me carpet shouldn't be in any truck muddy boots, snow covered boots and kids are all great reasons not to have carpet.

No carpet, weathertechs front and rear. No more stained, wet carpet. These trucks are quiet inside and carpet does very little for sound deadening
