Just my 2 cents on this. We place strategically cut pieces of clear stairway runner on our carpet for cleanup and preservation reasons. The piece that covers the carpeted area between the front seats gets surprisingly wet underneath when driving. I always lift and let it dry at the end of the day. Not doing so might cause the trapped moisture over time to promote mold which is never welcome.
We have the full floor Ford rubber mat over the carpet and I worry about moisture under the mat, held in by the carpet, and rusting the cab floor. I don't know if that would happen but I hope to someday take out the seats, remove the mat, and tear out the carpet (I hate carpet.) My original thought was to have a bare floor and get it spray sealed like they do in truck beds. Someone suggested I check with an installer and see if they'd give me a deal if I brought the rig in when they were doing other jobs as they could use the excess goop in our cab. I haven't checked that out yet. Once we got the rig and experienced the heat, I modified my plan to this: rip out carpet, get floor sealed AND put Ford mat back on top for insulation. Since we went with vinyl throughout, that would leave only the bit of carpet on the stair riser and that should be an easy replacement with vinyl.

Volkemon, I know this is old, but want to thank you for such detail in your pics and write-up. The question I have is: did you just lay the planks over the plywood and vinyl flooring, OR did you take the old vinyl flooring out? If you laid over, did you need to put some leveling compound of some type from the plywood to vinyl?Thanks, Bob
