Today's really Really REALLY dumb question

I have a 69 F-250 Powerstroke. It is time to Clean or replace the carpet. I have it out and pressure washed it.
If I have to replace it all the dealers on the net ask if it is a 2WD (it is) Diesel (yep) Extended cab (yes again) and finally does it have a high hump. Well since I only have the one truck , I don't have any thing to compare it to. So school me; How do I know if I have a high Hump?

BTW the crud coming out of the carpet looked like the Mississippi River Delta. Ran out of gas for Pressure washer so the rest will have to wait.

Thanks for the help.

Pretty sure the "high hump" model is reserved for the manual transmissions only...post up a picture of the transmission tunnel in yours, should be easy to tell if it has that option or not.

HTH..

I borrowed Ben's picture from the sound deadening thread in the interior discussion...his truck shows the "high hump" floor, note the "box" that bolts to the top of the transmission tunnel. I may stand corrected, but this should be the high hump model.

Kris,

Thanks for the info, at least now if the carpet doesn't look good once it's dry I know what to order.

Side note the floor boards are in great shape considering the bed sides are rotted out. But that's what the new bed is for.

These are old ones. New ones as I progress on the resto-mod process.
