    Could someone with #2 please show a pic of the floor with the seats folded up? Im still trying to understand what this extra floor piece looks like/ does....If there is an extra insert that those of us with #1 could get that smooth out the floor would be great!

    It looks like this was a design change made some time in 2010. The 2 piece carpeted captain chair base covers were upgraded to a smoother 1 piece unit. In the parts description it also mentions "for vehicle with plastic stanchion cover" and "for vehicle w/o plastic stanchion cover. I am not sure what this is in reference to.

    I am interested in upgrading my platinum (linen) to the 1 piece unit. The part number for the 2 piece units are 25831284 (LH) and 25831285 (RH) and they run about $68.00 each. The part number for the 1 piece unit is 20922981 (Linen) and it runs about $102.00. The other colors are slightly higher.

    The one piece unit can be found in the parts section- Section Cab and Body parts: wipers, mirrors, doors, trims, seatbelts. Component: Floor Covering and related parts. It is item number 16.

    I think this would be a good upgrade because the high curbs on the two piece units are magnets for dirt especially with light carpet. Maybe Chris with Rippy could tell us if the 1 piece can be retrofitted.

    Great info, sasakura! I would be in for buying the part as well. I've pulled up the part on the left second row seat, and its only attached with industrial Velcro. I would be surprised if the newer part attached any differently.

    I just replaced all the carpet in my 2008 Escalade ESV so I wanted to get new floor mats that would provide maximum coverage. High End Motor Sports offers 2 styles of floor mats for between the rear captain's chairs. The 2011 and newer style floormat is wider than the 2007-2010 style. The wider style is designed to work with the one-piece factory carpet that Escaldes started coming with in 2011. I ordered and received a new 2011 OEM one-piece carpet section to replace the original style. Here are some pics of the install.

    The new one-piece carpet seems to fit into place fine but I would be interested to see what is underneath a factory installed piece if anyone gets a chance to post a photo (like additional padding, velcro or anchoring points). The new floor mats definitely provide more coverage than the OEM's but they are not as tight a weave. I love that the 2nd row and between the captains chairs floor mat is all one section.
