I removed the carpet about a month ago. xtra heat not too bad. I did buy a roll of gray auto carpet at Big Lots for $8, plan to cut pieces that will generally fit to help with heat and sound (with proper holddowns of course), but plan on lining the tub first. Line-x nice (had it in a previous pickup) but real expensive. Planning on a DIY. Was thinking about an Al's Liner, heard good things about it. Still researching.
