Wiring Harnesses and Bedliner/Water

Hey everybody,

I've been on this forum for quite some time and am finally the proud owner of a 2014 wrangler. As i'm hoping to use the Jeep as both my daily driver and a mudder, there's a long list of mods I want to get done and a lot of money that needs to be saved in the coming months, but I want to start things off right and have decided to invest in a good Bedliner on the interior so as to prevent rust, wear and tear, etc.

After quite a bit of research, i've decided to go with Bullet Liner. A local company has quoted me at ~$600 plus tax including prep work for the entire tub and the roll bars, and i'm thinking that I'll jump on it as soon as possible because that seems like a damn good deal.

My hope is that after this is done i'll be able to take out the garden hose and spray down the interior to clean out any mud and sand that might be in there, then pull the plugs to drain it all out. I've already taken out all the carpet, the rear seats, the sound bar, plastic side panelling, rear seatbelts, foam inserts and fabric casing around the roll bars. Basically anything and everything that I don't feel is necessary on a bare-bones mudder, because i'm trying to do as much prep work as I can before I bring it in. I don't think i'll ever put any of that stuff back in anyway, even after the liner is applied.

My only concern is with the wiring harnesses, or rather, the companies ability to take out the wiring harnesses, apply the liner evenly and properly, then put them back in. In addition, If I aim to literally spray down the interior of the Jeep, how will the wiring harnesses be affected by the water? I'm not so concerned about the lengths of wire running along the floor and the side as I am about the numerous connections underneath the seats and around the seatbelts. Are they water resistant or waterproof? If not, is there any way to make them waterproof? How do you guys protect your exposed wires when the panelling is not on?

I'd really appreciate some insight regarding these harnesses from anybody else that may have had bedliner applied, or have found themselves in the same situation. I'm more than happy to do the work myself, and so far stripping the interior has been easy, but I really would like to make sure I don't do anything stupid before it's too late. Wiring harnesses weren't cheap when last I checked.

Thank you.

Bump, and I should probably add a TLDR:

How waterproof are the wiring harnesses while exposed?
