Truck bed carpet kits were very popular in the 1970s and early 1980s and there were a lot of manufacturers making them. They fell out of vogue, as they say, and yet there were still a few who continued to make them.
L.A. BedMasters has been making our custom carpet kits for years, its a brand we trust. We are one of the few in Southern California to offer custom truck bed carpet kits. Each carpet kit is custom made by hand to insure top quality and long life. Handcrafted from wood and plush carpet (which you can choose the color), these carpet kits come with storage compartments and have lots of room for more!
Here Is a page of info and pics for the Truck Bed Carpet Kit I am selling. This is a great unit to make more functional use out of the back of your pickup truck. It can be used as a bed for two during camping trips or as a handy way to store tools, emergency supplies, or just about anything. See below and the next page for more pictures, information, and price.
The Kit came out of the back of a 2001 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. It was custom built to fit a standard size bed with the factory bed liner installed. It is constructed of Flake board on a frame of 2x2's . As you can see all surfaces are covered in a heavy duty indoor/outdoor carpet. The surfaces on the top have a 3/8 inch foam pad underneath.
As you can see in the pictures the whole kit is only 4 pieces. The 2 side boxes, and the 2 middle platforms. The midle pieces can either rest on the bed of the truck or be put up on the rails to create a flat level surface. No bolting or instilation is required. The slight pressure on the tailgate holds it in place. You can have the unit in, and ready to go, in about a minute.
There are 3 compartments in each of the side boxes. The front and back compartments are completly enclosed. They make a perfect place to store food and other things you don't want 'critters' getting into. The middle compartment is construcetd with no sides or bottom so that it fits around the wheel well. A load of storage can also be found under the middle if the kit made into a bed. I frequently use this space to store valauble items, like skis, out of sight. The whole thing is made very solid and easily suppports 2 peple sleeping on top.
