    Hey Gang!! I was kicking around the idea of installing a wood floor in my 07 Volvo. Any tips, advice or helpful hints would be much appreciated.
    I just thought I'd do something different. I think a wood floor would be sharp with a couple of rugs. My main concern is how to install: Do I nail the wooden floor tiles directly to the truck floor or should I use a piece of plywood first then place the wood floor on that? Do I nail, glue or velcrove the floor tiles? Do I bolt down the plywood to the truck floor and place the wooden tiles on it ?
    Like I mentioned, just a thought to install it!!

    they make wood flooring kits for trucks, I'm not sure about your make and model in particular but i know they do make them for alot of trucks.

    The CMT show Trick My Truck had a truck that recieved a wooden floor. So you are not the first to do it.

    if you use the home depot or menards wood flooring they snap together now, no nailing. its a floating floor.
