cargo area fitted covering/liner

Hey everyone,

I'm a total newbie to all things Jeep, so please forgive me (i've been a Dodge Ram girl until 2 days ago when we picked up our brand new Wrangler!), but i had a question about protecting the interior.

For our lifestyle, its easier to keep the entire rear of the truck as an open cargo area, so the seats will be down most of the time. We have 3 giant dogs, dirty horsey things, and construction material and tools that regularly swap out for one another.

What we've done so far is purchase a rigid but flexible area rug and customize it to fit and cover almost every inch of carpeted area behind the drivers seat (front are leather, so thats not an issue). While its not the nicest looking, its effective but i was wondering if there's something made specifically for jeep to fit the nooks and crannies, really durable and have it look good as well.

thanks, but I'm looking for something that covers the sides and back of the seats too so EVERYTHING is covered, not just the floor

Based on what you sait you need, I'd recommend taking the carpets out and painting on some bed liner. It's tough, durable, protective and looks good.
Don't know if you have a 2-door or a 4-door but In addition to the bed lining, I've seen people with JKUs get a piece of wood and cover it in fabric to go over the gap when the seats are folded down.

I'm not finding anything to cover everything in the back but I just came across this from Kilby Enterprises.
They have side cargo panels as well.

i had the same requirements as the o.p. describes but for my TJ. my dog makes a mess of the tub area, and I did not want to remove the carpeting or apply any sort of permanent liner material as I wanted to be able to return the vehicle to bone stock at the drop of a hat.

i purchased one of those vinyl liners from Quadratec, it was suppose to form-fit into the tub area, including the sides. It was expensive at $350, but what a piece of junk that liner was, no way it would fit, so I had to return it.

what i ended up getting was a furniture mat, also called a moving mat. basically it is a thick, super heavy duty, strongly constructed blanket designed to protect anything it covers. i purchased a 96" x 80" blanket from McMaster-Carr for $29. Folded in half and placed in the tub area, it covers 100% of the carpeting and since it is so heavy it stays put. And at $29 each it is super cheap.

I just tried to figure this out too. In my opinion, there was not a "perfect" solution. I ended talking to these guys and going to order this product: Cargoliner*::*Ultimate Pet Liner™*::*Full Liners
Curiously, I was at a 4wheelparts store today and there is a company making custom formed rigid liners for the back of pickup trucks. They are hard to explain, but they are carpet backed and then almost a spray in bedliner over that. They velcroed in and zipped together to cover every inch of the bed including wheel wells. Like I said, hard to describe it, but it would have been "perfect" for my purposes if they would make them for a JK.

A side note on the link I posted, they will do black ones and I informed them about the new seats and they said that they would head to the dealership to remeasure the jeep and then would test fit mine before sending it.
