Hot floor boards...

I would like to Rhino Line my floor and do away with the carpet, get tired of taking it out to dry, but I noticed on a trip to Tyler the other day, the floor gets REALLY hot Am I stuck with the carpet? I used to have a truck with vinyl floorboards - it was great - just hose it out - thanks

i plan on herculining mine this summer. i wouldn't think the heat would affect it at all. i read about a bunch of people doing it here on the forum and i have never heard of a complaint.

Not having something as thick as the carpet can and will make a difference to the heat transferred thru the tub. There's a couple different ways to deal with it. You can put down a barrier before you put your lining in like they use for trunks with speakers. You can put your lining on a little thicker to help keep the heat out. Or you can rig up some extra heat shielding on the underside to keep extra heat off of your feet.

Some find they notice no difference and others have some discomfort from it. It's all kind of personal preference.

It does seem to be a neat idea, but I wasn't thinking of the liner being damaged, I was thinking of getting the hotfoot! on the underside of my carpet is silver heat shield, and a note saying something about not removing due to high temps on the floor. As warm as my feet got on a 2 1/2 hour trip, with the carpet, I can't imagine how it would be without....seems like it would take the fun out of driving.... (and yes, I meant the spray liner - had it in a pickup - great stuff)

I took the carpet out of mine and haven't lined it yet. There was a write up in Jp I think that laid dynomat first then lined it. I just turn the A/C on to the floor when my feet start getting hot.

I took the carpet out and had vinyl on for a while but it would get way hot by the pedals in the summer, so I went to a car upholsery place and they gave me a couple of pieces of liner for free. I took those silver shields off. It works great now.

Are you sure that your cat might not be a bit clogged? It would definitely cause extra heat.

Don't drive barefoot... ok, It's a Jeep so ya gotta drive barefoot sometimes.
Amy has some really impressive, industrial duty floor mats that hold about a gallon of mud and water before they need drained, you could probably do something like that on top of the Rhino lining.
Ya just take em out an hose off, they dry pretty fast.. well, when it's above freezing they dry fast.
I hate winter, I want warm feet, wanna trade Jeeps?

Keep us posted...I was planing on Rhino lining mine this summer, and put my floor mats back in. I may line the bottom of the mats with a heat-shield of some sort.

A good solution if you are looking to put something on top of your tub is to use that industrial rubber mat that guys usually see in commercial bathrooms. With the octagonal holes in it. It's about 1/2" thick and lets some of the heat disipate before it makes it uncomfortable for you. Then as Skeeter put it, you can just pull it out and hose it down.

When i removed my carpet (jeeps suck as submarines) Theres stickers underneath that clearly state not to remove it because the floorboards get relatively hot. The floor itself isnt extreme but catch a metal headed screw with a barefoot and it will blister ya. I lined my interior and still use floormats, and the heat isnt a factor unless for some strange reason you drive with your legs wrapped around your shifter. *blink*
