You could try velcro. Some come with rather sticky backings, and you can get it cheap from alot of places.

I got the same issue it's sort of intentional to allow them to be removed easily. If you're going to keep the carpets forever, I'd suggest getting some tack strips and pop rivet em on under the plastic where they creep out... I haven't done it, because I'm most likely going to toss mine and herc it, but I'm fairly sure you could get it to work if you are either "macgyver" enough to do it or know someone who is...

Velcro = $3.99 and about ten or fifteen min.

Tack strips and pop rivets = $25+ and an hour or so.

Velcro may not be as perminent, but who the hell cares? Its cheap, quick, easy, and works really well.

Yes, that silly carpet doesn't like to stay in place. We removed ours after it got soggy too many times. A year and a half later we still haven't put it back in, it's been nicer having it permanently out but I don't understand all that junk on the floor beneath the carpet. Do you know what I'm talking about? Rut upon rut to collect muck!

He'd only need two little chunks near the console... It's the only part that creeps out. Having a DJ makes me always think two things as far as mods go... Heavy Duty and permanent

sound dampening like david said not a "sound barrier" like foam, but it's supposed to keep vibrations down so the metal can't transfer sound as easily.

throw out the carpet and hurciliner the tub. So much nicer and you dont have to worry about the carpet getting dirty...

and some of you will say it is louder with no carpet... i say back, with your doors and windows off, you wont notice any difference in sound from the lack of carpet!

Hmm, maybe that's what it is but it looks like a mess to me, I'll photo it and see what you guys think. The floors do get hot, but a lot of the heat seems to just blow up through the drain plug hole, not really a big deal and noise is not an issue, I mean the tops always down and doors nearly always off! And are they really supposed to have velcroed the carpet in at the factory? If so, they missed ours too!
