You should also put down any sound deadener material you plan on using and put down some kind of padding, whether it is jute or polyfoam. You can then use the padding as a pattern to cut your carpet about 3" bigger than your padding which will make your carpet more manageable. After that, trim it down to size and put the truck back together.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
