Insulation and protection...

So, my Jeeps PO was a smoker and dropped his cigs right on the carpet. The day I bought it, I pulled it all out, bought some cheap floormats, and forgot about it. Now I am tired of the bare metal but would prefer some form of carpet over bedliner (I don't like the look of some of the welds and such). Where can I find something that will be weather resistant, insulate, and look good?

You could always watch the forums and such for somebody that is bedlining their rig. If they are just taking their carpet out, you might be able to get your hands on it if they are close.

There are a number of aftermarket carpets you can buy. I wouldn't know which are best though.

I suggest Monstaliner under the carpet. You don't want cheap bedliner under the carpet because the carpet can wear through it. Monstaliner is thick/tough and won't get worn through.

Also those welds aren't welds at all, they are massive amounts of seam sealer.

Good Ideas, So if I were to Monstaline, how long would it take from start to driving? and could I trim the seam sealer down somehow? Right now it looks like the blob is riding in the back.

I keep hearing all these good things about "Bed Rug", may want to check it out. If it gets good reviews, I may go with it after I monster line. (Or similar.)

I just ran into this same issue I was tired of a metal floor and the associated loudness of the vehicle/ heat and cold. Try this stuff SprayDead Liquid Sound Deadener Documents

I pulled the entire interior and painted on 3 coats and then enameled it all black and put in new carpet.
cot 50 for the spray dead, 25 for the paint from Sherwin Williams 100 for Ebay 7 piece black carpet

it is far quieter and a lot nicer inside now, it is also a lot easier to wash out after mudding because I used black high gloss enamel paint nothing sticks to it
These pics are the spray dead before painting...

Wow, so many options... This is my only vehicle so anything I do will be on a time constraint. One of the reasons I was thinking carpet. The bed rug looks cool! weighing my options...

I believe your seeing the soft top, it folds back and stays attached when the hard top is on. The tail gate is open and the soft top is laying down in front of it.
