    Wood floors in trucks

    Hey guys was just wondering on how hard it was to put a wood floor in a truck. The truck is a 2007 peterbilt 379 48" flat top. Can you buy kits to do this also. any tips and pictures would be greatly appreciated!

    Pretty sure they sell kits for this. Check out Iowa 80 or some other truck chrome type shop.

    I've seen the wood flooring fits on chrome shop websites and Ebay.

    I was talking about doing this wood floor with a lady that does truck detailing today. she said you have t take off your shoes and even so it stars looking pretty crappy pretty quickly...

    Anyone who has the wood flooring - is she correct?

    When i did my house's floor i had some left over so i decided to have polished teak floors on my w9 they look wonderful but are a great responsibility to maintain and keep looking good on a working truck. It took my neighbor 4 days to complete but then again he does floors for a living. I would recommend rockwood accessories, they made a custom dash for one of my old Petemobile's and they did a tremendous job.

    My dads been a carpenter for over 30yrs so I know a little about this. To begin you must take out the flooring of the cab. You have several option ranging from laminates to pure hardwoods. They range from $.50 per sq foot to $5.15. It all depends on what you want.

    this will make a long story short,if you have skills you can use household flooring. i've seen it done in a classic freightshaker. they sell the kits on ebay for $300 and they will install if you come to TN. i'm thinking for a working truck that u may need to add some extra clear coat or sealer to keep the varnish from getting scarred.

    Thanks for the replys guys! We havent decided on what we are going to do yet wood floors or carpet. Do they scratch bad after a while or do you lay mats down first to prevent this?

    If you were to do this, i would suggest the urethane that is used on wodden basketball courts for durability..
