Got my first close up look at a 2014 Silverado yesterday and first thing I notice is the carpet in the wheel wells. What the heck is that all about? Must be for road noise reduction but I wonder how it will hold up under constant rocks, tar and road salt.

I dunno, I am seeing it more and more here lately on newer cars and now trucks.

Noise reduction. It only has to last 3 years or 36k miles.

Sounds about right...

I admit that I've always wanted a truck with "wheel to wheel" carpet! :freak:

I noticed Jeep Grand Cherokees started doing this a couple years ago.

Are they glued or attached some other way to a regular fender liner ? If you could replace them after a few years for fifty bucks or so it wouldn't be too bad.

No worries, it is indoor/outdoor carpeting. :D

Your right it's not carpet.. Gm refers to it as some type of mesh supposedly lighter than plastic. Haven't had a problem with cleaning so far but what is this apc stuff your talking about ryanbabz71?

All Purpose Cleaner. Any of the real car care brands sell it (ie not the cheap stuff from autozone. :lol: )

Ok just making sure this wasn't a particular brand. I've always used simple green and a little Elbow grease

Anybody else heard that they put the cabin air filter back in this model? My Manual makes a reference to it but says see dealer for part.

My only complaint on the new liners is that the rears do not drop far enough down to cover the frame like the ones on the 900s do. So I guess after market will hit on this.

Carpet or not, as much as I drive through the woods for hunting and fishing I doubt it would last long on a truck of mine
