so the front and rear should over lap 10" ? no adhesive needed?

I would say approx 10". The point is there is plenty of front carpet to overlay the rear, and you need to make sure the front is pulled up high on the firewall (usually hits the column) and the heel pad is right place. These are the guides you can use to make sure the front is in the right place. The rear will have "molded-type" sections that fit in the footwells. It usually becomes obvious once you get it in the car.

Correct no adhesive is required, unless you want to use a little to hold down the carpet as it has a tendency to shift while you are working on it.  Once you get it in position and install the seatbelts then the front seats, that will hold the carpet in place.

I think I will use just alittle adhesive as I don't have sear belts to install yet just the bolts. it should meet them where they need to be. I will try to do the install this weekend if the weather is nice enough to warm the carpet outside

Here is a good article on carpet installation from Mopar Connection.  Not an e-body but its generally the same process.
