Looks nice. +1 on gettin the youngsters in on it.

To each his own. Too many forceful opinions on WF these days.

Great looking helper. I am building a 92 YJ for my daughter. I plan on rhino line and then put carpet over it for heat and sound damper. I personally like the carpet look!

I have carpet in my Jeep as well. If I ever lined it, I would still put the carpet back in over top of it.

Bedliner or carpet are both great options over the factory color surface rusted floors. I bedlined mine at first and then a month later bought a carpet. Love the carpet, completely changes the interior

Looks good! Does it make a pretty big difference as far as noise reduction goes?

I've got Berliner down and also carpet. I pull the carpet during the summer because I also pull the top off. My carpet is about 5-7 pieces that snap together with snap buttons. I do not know anything about the carpet because it came from the PO. Luckily I'm going to install my hard doors and carpet tomorrow afternoon. I can check it out for tags if anyone is interested. Also I wouldn't really say it helps much with noise or "weather" but I do like the feeling of going from soft/no doors, bikini top, no carpet. To full doors, soft top, and carpet. It's like a new jeep! Well,... A new yj.

You could get stainless steel button snaps from a boat store ans screw one side to the body and the other in the carpet and stainless doesn't rust

Need some advice or a recommendation on a carpet kit. I'd like to have one that covers up where the center console is because I'm installing an ammo box there instead which is smaller than the OEM unit. The OEM carpet has a cutout in that area and the floor show through.

TIA
