Hi Mig, you could always just get some nice aftermarket floor mats and not worry with covering the floor with anything. I pulled out all of my carpet a long time ago. No concern over spills, mud, kids, or debris in there now.

there are a couple of DIY bed line kits out there.... no where near the price of line-x, have you thought about any of those?

or just run like ESP suggested... with mats and no carpet.

I have herculined 3 of my 4 Jeeps. For about $100 you can get everything you need, maybe less. If you aren't familiar with it, it is basically a bedliner that you paint on. Very little prep is needed on a newer Jeep, but I have pulled my seats in the past to do it. It is a good weekend project since you will need to plan on some dry time. After that you could slap some rubber mats down and call it a day.

I don't have any of those Jeeps anymore. Here is a link to the product....
Herculiner Truck Bed Liners

You can find it at Walmart, or Lowes / Home Depot probably has it too. My tips would be to put it on thick, in a well vented area. Remove anything that is bolted to the floor for an easy install. You can do it without removing the seats, but you might spend just as much time trying to apply under and around them as you would unbolting. Put a piece of tape over any bolt holes as well to prevent the herculiner from jamming up threads.

If nobody around here posts pictures, try the TJ forum section. I am sure someone will have some pictures of it there!

Quick search in the TJ forum and found that great write-up. If the link doesn't work just search "herculiner". Sorry didn't know how to link another thread!

You brush / roll it on. If the kit doesn't come with a brush or roller no need to get a high dollar one. Plan on throwing your supplies away when you are complete. Goodluck and post pictures when done!

I've found if you have a smart phone (iphone) and the wrangler forum app it's pretty easy to reply to a thread and attach a pic. just a suggestion

You can't post a picture by hosting it on your computer. You either need to attach it to a post using the VB utility built into the forums, or host it at Imgur, or Photobucket, etc. and post the image URL.

How difficult is it to get the carpets out? Do the seats have to come out to get the carpet out?

Just the rear seat I believe. Very easy.

Yeah the dry time is the worst part. I thought you would be good in FL though when I saw your location. That stuff will hold up for many years. Did you go with black? I have seen red and grey as well, but think black turns out the best.

I found some photos from when I did my '93 many years ago. My Father uses this Jeep as a DD today and the herculiner has been holding up great. I did this probably 5 years ago or so when we started restoring the '93. You can see the before, during, and after photos. I went a little overboard on the sanding, but due to the age of the vehicle I had some surface rust to take care of. You really only need to just scratch the surface for the material to bond.

On a side note that '93 has the original 4.0 and just hit 250k miles. Thing will not die...

That looks really good. I kinda want to do it now. I'm waiting to see a friend's (in person) before I decide for sure, though.

It is really easy to keep clean too. Hose works great, and if you haul a dog around, no more hair stuck in the carpet!
