Carpet or Bed liner??

Hey jeepers, im new to the site and need help, i need some help figuring out if i want to install new carpet or should i rhino line, in Hawaii they call it lava liner. I dont want to lower the resale value of the jeep because im gonna sell her before i get deployed overseas, and buy a newer jeep when i get back So opinions please, thanks for your time

I think carpet would look better and sell better. Rhino lining might make people think the jeep has had a hard life, and most people don't really go offroad in their jeeps anyway so most buyers would prefer carpet. And the stereo sounds better with carpet!

I am going to disagree. My jeep sold because I had already lined it. He liked that he didn't have to do it ... I suggest raptor liner. I used rhinoliner in the last one and it's like sandpaper raptor looks better to me. And you could always line it and put carpet over the liner my friend did that to his yj.

X2 I just recently got my TJ, and the first thing I am going to do this spring is line the tub. Just can't beat how easy it is to clean out a jeep once it has been lined.

I'd line it and put the carpet back down.

I agree with MCat there is nothing that says you can't put carpet in a lined Jeep!

Actually, I'm thinking of lining my guest bathrooms tub. No chance of a slip and fall you know.

yeah lining it and putting carpet down like i said my friend did looks good and is the best of both worlds.. my carpet is stained so i will be removing it and lineing it once it is consistantly above 70 degrees.
