After much looking at rubber floor liners and such on the Internet for the cargo area, I've decided to make my own for more of what I'm looking for. My whole tub is bed lined w/o carpet, and I needed something that I could take the seats out and lay down so that a dog could lay in the back without getting jabbed by the metal tie downs in the back, get my subwoofer off the ground away from water, make the jeep look more comfortable etc.

And so it begins with a single sheet of plywood! We've got spare marine grade carpet from a recent boat project. Time to get some measurements, and get to cutting.

Alright I got the measurements and cut out the dimensions around the side. It ended up being 35&1/8"x 35&7/8". From wall to wall is longer than rear to front. I left about a quarter inch for carpet around the sides... It'll be a pretty snug fit, which is just what I wanted. Next cuts will be the holes that allow the liner to fit around the tie downs, and cuts allowing it to fit around the rear seat brackets. It's coming together quite nicely already!

This is turning out to be a lot more cutting and fitment than I thought. And it's freakin' hot outside lol. At this point I'm basically eyeballing and hacking away with the jigsaw. Heck, the carpet will cover up the bad cuts right?

Alright. It's done. A lot more work than I was expecting but I'm really proud of how it turned out. Really cleaned up the look to. Eliminated tiedowns sticking up, gave me a soft open surface to put luggage, it's pretty abrasive, raises my sub of the floor away from water(kinda) and easy to clean, and easily removable.. Best of all, we had all the stuff already laying around and it costed $0.

Real cool. In hindsight if you could change anything what would you change and why? Did the wood and soft surface add to the sound quality from the sub and did it cut down on any road noise?

Well, I'd definitely make sure I made all necessary cuts before carpeting. I forgot to take into account the rubber boots on the rear seat not fitting, so now there are two pretty nasty holes when the seat is lifted up. That's about the only thing! It's pretty awesome. Sub sounds great. It takes a little volume out of it, but the warmth and depth is way better! Road noise, eh. About the same!

There's a lot more cutting around things than you think, so be prepared to cut A LOT. And you're welcome! Glad someone was interested in it!
