So i'm getting all my ducks in a row to remove the in-cab fuel tank, and do the under the bed blazer tank. I would have sworn i had seen a carpet kit that goes where the in-cab fuel tank is, for after you remove it....? Any of you guys seen that? I'm not having any luck finding anything now.

Are you looking for carpeting to run up the back of the inside of the cab wall or under the seat?

I checked LMC, and didn't see the kit i am looking for. Tony1963, i'm looking for the carpet piece that just fills where the tank was sitting, so maybe like 8" on the ground, then the rest up the back side. Make sense?

Yes, that's what I wondered if you were asking.

I seem to recall something from the past, but not sure. I remember some type of frame that fits in the rear of the cab that holds the carpet vertical. There's nothing there to attach the carpet to, so other than gluing it in place or fabricating something, I'm not sure how you would hold it.

I had a Ford pickup (Lariat model) back in the 90s that was premium trim and it had carpeting behind the seat. As I recall, there was a trim piece that held the carpet and they had some padding behind it to give it a finished look.

I took some thin plywood and some cheap utility carpet from Home depot and glued it to the plywood. It was cheap and easy to do added some interior trim screws and some sound deadener on the cab wall and we rolling
