Bed Liner Tub

This weekend i took out all my carpet and bed lined the tub. I love it!






The rear seat bracket bolts snapped off so the seat isn't on right now.

Does the jeep get louder with the carpeting out? How about the heat too? I would think that the heat from the motor/exhaust and outside would come thru the bare metel. I'm thinking of doing the same, but am afraid of these things.

actually it is used to make it quieter and sound deadens many cars for stereo systems. So no, its actually a little quieter. As far as heat goes i have not experienced any coming through.

Are all bedlining materials good for deadening sound? Or just the one you got. I'm really diggin the look and ease of cleaning. Plus it's another item less you have to worry about getting wet with rain when the top is off.

I used Plasti-Kote Bed Liner. I got the kit at wal-mart for $50. I only used about half a gallon and i used two coats that covered it very well. I only used the given scotch brite pad for little areas, the rest i used an attachment that i had for my drill.

Very nice! I have been wanting to do the same thing but haven't had time to compare products. It's good to here you liked the Plasti-Kote Bed Liner.
How long did it take you?

I personally think it is a little louder... not by much, but some.

as far as the heat goes... i had a small pillow sitting on the floor pan near the transmission.... i was too lazy to pick it up after it fell, but after the 240 mile trip home from Moab, the pillow was partially melted! it wasnt a total lost cause as it was only a camping pillow, but it was a direct result of heat from the floor pan! haha, i just laughed!

Nice!! I am seriously considering doing this to my project 97TJ. I had the same curiosity about the heat coming through. When I yanked out the dead carpet I noticed the factory carpet had foil heat shields sewn to the under side. Have you seriously not noticed any heat or noise difference?

Spanky, is the heat/noise difference enough to annoy you?

the noise difference is not even enough to notice, BUT if i had to pick a "before and after" well then the noise difference after is slighty more noticeable AFTER.

as far as the heat? nah. didnt bother me a bit. i just know now, that anything that might be in contact with the floor pan near the tranny... well beware.

i wouldnt change a thing about the "Herculiner" that i put in last summer.

i cant express the ease of cleaning the jeep now. either your driveway or local car wash, just spray it off and , viola , done! awesome!

I had the carpet out of the back of my Jeep for about a year because it got wet and I got to lazy to put it back in. I never noticed much of a noise difference. Then again I live in Florida and have the windows down or top off all the time so it is always noisy in the Jeep.

Hopefully yours holds up! It looks like you did prep well. That's what was in mine when I bought it and it was flaking off by just barely touching it so I scraped it all out and sprayed in some UPOL Raptor... Not saying it's better or anything, just wishing you luck and hopefully the prep work made the difference!

my center console was junk, so i literally ripped it out. i bought a used one to take its place. it wasnt too hard to install.

my seats are after market, but they are on the stock brackets and sliders so i assume it wouldnt be too different than stock seats.... they were not hard at all to take out, and put back in.

i did this to my first wrangler and was probably the best mod i could have done.

id mask off the dash vents and the sub. go mud with the top and doors off. and then hit the car was and run it all down drain holes. o and get wet okle seat covers. 100% water proof

also i am assuming you dont have an amp and subwoofers.
i really like the bedliner idea, but would not know what to do with the cables to and from the amp and speakers. with carpet you just hide it under the carpet.

does anybody have this setup w the bedliner? or any ideas on how to hide the cables?

i think he meant to rough up the floor before painting. the kit comes with a "scotch brite" abrasive pad that you use to scuff the surface to be painted. he must have used another abrasive pad or sanding disc on his drill.

i would get some "Marine Clean" and wash it out with that first. i am going to be doing a rattle can paint job on the exterior of my cj and will be using that. it works VERY well. i just used it to clean the 26 year old engine bay and it cleaned and degreased it very well. also using an adhesion promoter before the paint is a good idea.

heres what i did, seemed to work just fine....

after removing everything inside, with soap and water washed, then rinsed, so i had a nice clean work area for sanding.

then sanded the bejesus out of it. when i thought i was done sanding, i sanded more!

i vacuumed it out, then rinsed it again with the hose.

had some lunch while it dried.

took some xylene and wiped everything down.

then taped where ever i didnt want that stuff sticking

wiped down one last time with xylene

went crazy with herculiner.
