Finally got too hot

After this last 1000 mile round trip I took this summer, we decided it was just to hot in the suburban. I really like the Durabak, but it block enough heat and we were all just about cooked by the time we got home.
So yesterday I ordered full floor vinyl with padding; it should be here in a week or so, and hopefully that will cool things off.
My advice for anyone considering removing the carpet in their daily driver is to really think hard first. It wasn't the best choice I ever made.

Yeah, you have to consider it. I think the K5 is going to get Durabak both on the underside and on the inside to try to alleviate heat problems.

My truck will roast you out on the trail. A lot of people will get in my truck, say "man, your truck sure does ride nice" and then they get out at the next opportunity because it's just too hot.

Re: Finally got too hot

Ewww, that reminds me of my buddy's old truck he had back in the 80's. He had a 67 chevy step side that was mounted on a blazer 4wd frame. The floorboard got so hot it could have taken the skin off your feet if you let it. I remember many a hot, suffering trip to the lake in that ol truck. But hell, it looked cool.
