carpet gets wet and stinks, should i remove it?

I'm thinking I want to remove my carpet kit from my 2008 jeep wrangler it just gets wet and smells like mold. Is there any reason I should take my carpet out and is it difficult to remove? Also I'm thinking of spraying the interior with an undercoating after I take out the carpet has anyone else done this can it be done at home and with good results? Thanks for any input.

That's up to you. Do you like the smell of mold? NO? then take it out or have it cleaned. Yes coating the tub has been done, with great success!

I just took my carpets out yesterday...I never understood why carpet is in the jeeps anyway. I love the fact that they are out...After i took them out i rinsed the inside out with a hose. Took me back to the days with my CJ. My vote is do it!

Yea take them out, I took mine out a week ago and its better. If you don't want to take them out just take the top off and air them out.

Take em out and free up the tub drain plugs so when it gets real wet in side you can pop em out and let the tub drain.

Easy to remove. Do it, wash em with a power washer and some orange cleaner or something that smells good, let it dry in the sun. It'll be good as new... Then you can stash it in the garage like the rest of us...

Use a low pressure pressure washer and it should clean them up nice.
