Is it safe?

I would like to take out the carpets from my 2004 Rubicon to keep clean while trailing. I actually did, THEN checked the owner's manual. It said not to do this because the heat can cause injury. I've read of tub liners but it seemed to be more for rust. The Lizard Skin looked the best so far. So, is it necessary to line the tub for heat reduction or is it ok to just leave the carpets out? I like to wear my homemade Chuck Taylor sandals during the summer and hate, HATE being burned.

Yep, that's just liability oriented language put in by chysler's lawyers. The floorpan gets hot but it's not that hot.

Hope they don't have to pursue anyone.

No carpet, no problem.

hmm. i've not had carpet for a VERY long time. no liner of any kind, just metal. it's super slippery when wet. i've also driven in the summer with no shoes after it had been sitting in the sun all day. (i was driving 4 blocks to my friends house to go swimming, thus i didn't wear shoes. lol)

and it's wasn't hot to the point where i thought it was going to burn my feet.

I have no carpets or bedliner in but I do just have thick rubber floor mats in the front and I have no problem with heat except right next to the gas pedal after driving for a long time.

Should be fine

No carpet in mine, only Herculiner. I drive mine wearing flip flops and it's been almost a 100 degrees lately. Feels good man

I've had mine lined for a couple months now and there is definitely some warmth, but nothing too bad. I can't wait until the one month of winter we have here in Texas so I can pretend I have heated flooring.

Personally, I would recommend at least a little something other than bare metal...but it's really to each his own.

In another month here the metal on my Jeep will feel like it was delivered directly from an assembly line in hell.

If you don't mind me asking. How much was that and what kind of liner is that, because that is exactly what I want for my Jeep.

And what are your thoughts about it? Is it comfortable? (On feet)

Well my buddy at work got it installed in his 2000 tj at a rhino liner dealer. You should probably expect to spend anywhere from 200-500 to get it installed, its a spray on bed liner like Line-x except instead of the hard smooth surface of the Line-x, the rhino liner has more of a rubbery feel to it, and it should stop things from sliding around, and reduce slippage by quite a bit

Also it will be cooler than the bare metal floor in your jeep. If it is something you think you would want to do, best bet would be to check on line to find the nearest rhino liner dealer in your area, they can probably give you a ballpark price on getting it installed. Hope this helped.

My 97 didn't even come with carpet and even after 12 hours of driving to vacation with stops only for gas the floor never got too hot to touch. It's actually kinda nice on long drives since it acts like a foot heater to sooth those aching feet. And really nice in the winter.
