    This is my Husband's new truck, it had no carpeting to speak of when we bought it. So for the past week and a half I installed it.

    It is impossible to do things without our assistants.

    I used adhesive only between the carpet and the insulation. On the passenger side just under your feet is the battery compartment. So to have access to it I couldn't glue it down. I did cut a 12" slice in the carpet in front of the passenger seat to access the opening and put velcro to close it.
    We used 3M spray adhesive from Wal Mart.
