    You should try Quik Out, works great.

    I did an excursion and used my carpet spot cleaner upholstery attachment to extract it and the mat turned out looking new.

    Spray, soak, agitate, extract.

    Much better though. My dad's truck looks like that. I always yell at him. He's an electrician.

    The H20 2 spotter used is one of the best institutional / industrial strength carpet cleaner
    Quick out isn't even comparable totally different ingredients ...

    Re: Why use floor mats...?

    That's a pretty nice improvement. This is the reason I not only use the factory mats but also buy a few carpet samples for around $1 each for a carpeting store and use those as well. In wintery climates or to lessen general wear and tear, I feel nothing beats them. I heard somewhere prevention is the best cure.

    On another note, I had a 1991 Buick Regal and I kind of miss the blue interior that this truck has. Maybe I'm the only one, but I kind of miss a little color in my interior.

    That looks like a floor mat to me, it just wasn't big enough to protect. And the flat shape of it really does nothing to keep the dirt and water away from the carpet.

    I see you have one of the hook and loop carpet brushes that fits your pc, how do you like it?

    Idustrial cleaner and it won't come all the way out, man that must be some kentucky mud in there. LOL

    What if you let it soak for 30 minutes or so keeping it wet(if you haven't already) and have you tried a second or third application?

    Good improvement though!

    I alway use floor mats, there cool! Have you seen the one's at Pepboys?
    I'd replace yours, even with some carpet you find on the side of the road. Any thing is better than that, nice try though, atleast you removed the dirt, but not it's memory. Lot's of companys that sell carpet kits for this truck.
