I'm curious to know how the sound is in your cab now. Did the road noise increase any? Is there an echo inside now?

I've done this on both of our 2-doors. No real increase in road noise (less than 2 dB), and certainly no echo- Mark W.

did you completely leave everything out of them after the liner install?? im sure the liner lowers the sound abit as well doesnt it?

Not all the plastics- the JK looks rather ugly underneath the plastics up front. Also, I left in the plastics around the seatbelts, for safety reasons.
The liner itself does rather little in terms of sound damping. The JK's thicker body panels already do a pretty good job of reducing NVH- Mark W.

heh, i woulda thought the liner would have helped with the road noise. but then again you dont have the carpet and stuff back in the jeep. what kind of spray on liner did you use?

I have Herculiner in one, and Rustoleum's stuff in mine. Herculiner is grittier and tougher, Rustoleum's not as harsh to the touch- Mark W.

From that I can tell you that despite being in some very heavy, wind-driving summer thunderstorms and rain showers, virtually no moisture has gone in those spaces. For now - seems like a non-issue for me.
Do you leave the cover off the rear "cargo hold" (for lack of a better term) as well? I'm getting ready to line the tub of my JK and was trying to figure out what to do about that since I can't line it too and I kind of want it to match the rest of the interior.

As for the hole in side in front of the well. Did you line the inside at all to make it match or just leave it? I'm tyring to figure out how best to do that.

Finally, how did you hide all the electrical? I noticed today the rear brake light cables on mine that run from the front to the rear tail lights kind of hang down from underneath the lip on either side and I don't want my daughter to catch one and rip it out. I'm just curious how you tucked yours away. If you have pictures of those wires, I'd appreciate it.

I'm glad your project turned out so well. It gives me hope mine will too!!!
