OK...I'll Jump Start This New Forum.

I just dumped the '07 Suburban and picked up an '08 Expy EL. I am truly shocked that it is quieter and better riding than the 'Burb as it was great.

But, here's my problem. The push button lay-flat third row seats are a true asset and the rear adjustable shelf is right handy as well. The problem is I haven't found anything after market that conveniently protects the rear deck carpet in the various stages of seat configurations.

At present, it seems that my only option is buy 8' to 10' x 4' clear vinyl carpet runner




Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

When I had my 98 Expedition there was a large piece vinyl velcro to the back. Could you do the same with a thin piece of carpet from Auto Zone.

The problem with the '08 is this adjustable shelf gizmo that also becomes part of the lay-flat deck....but, you got me thinkin'. I am staring to like the Velcro idea because the carpet or vinyl would then move with the seat back. In the up position the cover would then hang in place without having to roll it up. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Now for the other two sections....
