    I prefer to just use my steam cleaner in the spring to clean the trucks. Usually use the zep brand soap in the machine.

    Any spray on rug cleaner will work but you need a very good vacuum cleaner to get the dirt out.

    Half gallon of gas and a match. Come on you can do it. It is part of the stimulus package for the economy. Employs fire fighters, Insurance adjusters, Arson Investigators, police, the list goes on and on... Or you can use a can of easy out.:D

    Not sure of the best product, but if you use a steam or wet cleaning method, or have it shampood by a detail shop, make sure to leave the windows open and park it in the sun whenever possible...the moisture buildup inside from evaporation cna be significant...and if your carpets are not properly dried out and the cab venitlated you can have condensation, rust and potentially electrical problems.
