I thought about going the thicker Essex route, but the thicker the carpet, the more difficult it is to vacuum. I settled on the Cutpile stuff for my entire kit, as it's thick enough to look good and still easy enough to vacuum.
I figure you're trying to get as close to stock with new cargo area carpet as you can with your remaining areas, but you might think about checking on the condition of all your old stuff and just replace it all to match.
As Dave mentioned, ACC is the go-to source, and that's who BJ's and others use for their kits.
