Stick Shift

What exactly is under the stick shift if you take it out...from what I've learned on here you have to take everything out of the jeep to roll or spray a liner in it...My brother has offered to help but hasn't ever done this and I'm a little nervous & don't want my jeep messed up!...When we were kids he would take things apart but couldn't put them back together...lol...so imagine my concern! Any pics and details for me please??!

What are you considering the stick shift? The plastic console, or the metal shift rod itself? Under the console is a metal floor, with a metal bracket around the area where the shifter comes up through the floor.

If you remove the shifter, then you will be able to see down into the top of the transmission...be careful not to drop or get anything down in there if you take it out!

Where in FL are you? Im near Orlando.

I'm just out of Jax..but not as far as St. A...um as far as the stick...there is the plastic console...then the metal rod...I just didn't know if there were wires or what if you took the stick out...does the stick have to be taken out to spray or roll it?

You can either roll bedliner over the plate or remove the plate and roll around the hole. if you leave the shifter in neutral it will sit in the middle of the hole you don't have to remove it

Bolt in one of the cup holders..remove it.
Open the consul...remove the bolts in there..
Slide your seats forward...remove the bolts on the side of consul
pull up and out.

Tape around the ebrake handle.

You can see the ebrake and the bracket around the shifter.

Aww,,,,you have the "base" model...not too many of them around. Most all have full consuls. It's been awhile since I've messed with the half consul but I guarantee you it's simple. Should just be a few bolts holding it on...you just have to look for them.

Im west of Orlando...Clermont.

Lining the inside of my tub has been on my "when I get around to it" list for about the last 10 years or so. I took the carpet out 6 months after I bought my 97 (got it new) and have been running just the bare paint since. But I am motivated now that the weather is changing

There are some more good pictures here:

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/spr...a-58563-2.html

I am trying to decide on which brand, and to spray, roll, or brush. I am leaning toward spraying the U-POL Raptorliner. I had a friend who rolled herculiner and it was really scratchy from the roller texture. The raptorliner is about $100-120 including the spray gun to apply it, and the spray would definitely make it easier to get up under the top portion of the tub in the back.

Yep, the base model has just one bolt in the cup holder,
i just "upgraded" mine to a full console from ajunkyard.
and one when you pull the cover on the shifter, mine was unbolted yours might be bolted on so look out for that.. is not visible till you remove the rubber covering from the shifter.
mine was on the passenger side. i've got a 97 TJ

Tearing it apart and rebuilding it is no sweat...its just some screws, and bolts. Ive had mine apart more times than I can count, including removing the seats to re-lube them when the fold-and-tumble seats turn into shove-and stuck!

Just had another forum member Raptor line mine a couple of weeks ago.... I highly recommend it. His has been done for a couple of years and still looks good, that's what sold me on it.. Nice texture, not scratchy, looks amazing...

Did you ever post pics? I don't remember them...

does it feel rubbery? I got a sample patch from monstaliner, and it was hard/plasticy...not what I expected.

I think I did, but here ya go... It's nice, not rubbery at all, just smooth bumps. Mines not as rough as the one pictured above. I really like the texture of it. The last pic shows the texture best.

InfernoGirl that does look awesome...I haven't had any comparison and that is much different...now you said a friend did it...I'm curious the price diff between the 2 or 3 most popular ones everyone talks about on here...oh yeah...how long does it take to completely dry and put seats back in?...also, how many coats?

Idk, about the price differences, look around Amazon, or google them and you'll get ideas on prices. The U-pol stuff can be sprayed or rolled I think, and I'm pretty sure Jason put 2 coats on mine. Seats were back in after 24 hours, then I let it bake in the sun for a couple of days mostly. Short trips were it. It's still outgassing some, but it's hard to the touch and has been since I picked it up the day after he sprayed it. It doesn't fade like Herculiner does, and the texture is nice, not sandy and rough to the touch, or rubbery/sticky. Just hard, smooth pebbles kind of....

How is the Raptorliner as far as being slippery? Do things slide around on it? How about under your feet when they are wet?

BTW - You make some nice looking seat covers. Wish I would have seen them a week ago before I ordered some I went with the smittybuilt neoprene, after being on the fence considering the vastly different reviews of neoprene. I love the look, but worry about the water absorbing/fading/stains you hear about. I originally was looking at wet okole, but couldn't justify the expense without being 100% sure the neoprene would work for me. So i went with the smittybuilt - $150 for the fronts with a free rear from 4WD. I figure for that, if they last a year and a half, I got my moneys worth, and I can see for myself how they work out.

If I end up hating them, I may come looking for some of yours. I like that they can be easily laundered, and being fabric, might be less sweaty in the Florida summer (if that's possible).

I haven't noticed the Raptor being slippery, but we haven't had any rain here to speak of in 2 months, so Idk for sure. I have rubber slush mats in the front, and I avoid the back if at all possible...

Thanks for the compliments on my seatcovers They work for me. I like that they aren't sweaty or cold, and that they are easy to care for.... They've gotten caked with mud, and laundered and look like new again. Hit me up when the Smittybuilts wear out...

Just up about 4-5" on the bars. Didn't want to have to remove the seatbelts and pads... So we just unzipped them and pushed them up a bit. Easier than taping them off...
