Don't forget about the drain plug under the rear storage bin! Had to air mine out for several days to get it to dry completely and stop stinking.

You may also want to take the jack handle/lug wrench out of the pleather case. The felt bottom soaks up smells and water. Washing and then drying it in the sun for a few days helps.

There is also a plug under the jack as mentioned. Water likes to collect there on mine especially. I show it at the end of the video showcasing the drain plug locations and a close up of my fingers.

Is there any way to minimize the heat that is coming up from underneath?

Mine doesn't throw much heat and I even have the heat goop off. It's only minimally more than with carpets. Bare feet are no problem

Mine throws MAD heat. Especially going through 100 degree temps in Arizona towing on road trips! It bakes you and I have to move my legs near the door to keep cool

Mine's heated up even through the carpet in stop and go traffic so far this summer. Not uncomfortable, but we're not in triple digit temps yet, either.

As for the plug...yep. Also don't forget the maxipad Jeep glue gunned to the bottom of the storage tray. Not sure why they put it there, but I went ahead and pulled that after my first soaking.

Dammit! I'm glad you guys are here to help me do my thinking. I'm tearing that moldy maxipad out next time I am even near it!
