Default Interior Trim/Carpet "Removal": '04-'08

Allright guys. This is those who need to get access behind the kick panels, under the thresholds/door sills and how to roll up the carpet/remove it. When I did the audio upgrade in my truck, I didn't remove the rear seat bottom, thus couldn't remove the carpet from the truck. If you need to remove the carpet from the truck 100%, then you'll need to remove all seat components and consoles. Then, you can move on to removing those little bit of extras that are holding the carpet down. I'll show those here. I didn't remove the B pillar trim pieces since the carpet can slide out from under, nor remove the trim pieces at the rear of the cab that are located behind the doors.

Seat Removal: '04-'08 Thread

Just an FYI, the whole dash, according to the owners manual, is considered the instrument panel. Thus, when it says to open the access panel for the fuse box located under the right hand side of the instrument panel, you'll know where to look. Also, a flow through console is one that has the gear selector located on it. It also has 2 vents at the back for the rear passengers. And it's "connected" to the instrument panel.

Passenger Side Kick Panel





Once you pull up the sill plate, you can then remove the door weather stripping. Just start at the bottom where the ends meet, and slowly start pulling away from the body. It's held on by friction.


Now, the drivers side kick panel. Make sure to pull up the door sill and remove the weatherstripping first!

Then on to the thing under the instrument panel, in the middle. Some of you may have this, others may not (flow through consoles and trucks that have the floor shifter, and MAYBE regular cab trucks since there's no need to have venting going to the rear).


Now, you can start to remove the carpet / peel it back. Like I said above, if you want to remove the carpet 100% from the truck, you'll need to remove the rear seat bench. Once you get the carpet out of the way, this is what you'll have:

Flow through consoles won't have these, nor will regular cabs.

good post, I like the way you do the particular details as in all your info
did'nt know about those air vents

time spent sitting next to an M-60 on a Slick, keeps me from enjoying the finer sounds in life
maybe I should be glad I dont have the need for a good stereo
cause that looks like a PITA
why did'nt you just use invisible wireless speakers LOL
