My Holiday Weekend Project

Well, after finally getting the Jeep back from the trans shop & spending $1648.00 for a rebuilt trans & some other work, it's now time to begin a mini makeover (until I run out of money). Today I installed new front brakes,rotors,calipers & hoses & lug nuts. I removed the carpet & scrubbed away 94,000 miles of dirt,dropped food & alot of hair. Tomorrow, the carpet gets installed after I sand & paint the drivers floor. Any tips on installing the carpet? The pictures are not very good. It's hard to tell the difference from before I washed it to after.

The carpet basically just lies on the floor, held down by the plastic.

It helps keep the heat out, but I just ditched it and got floor mats.

rhino line it while you have the carpet out. Then put the new carpet in. You might as well.

Rhino Liner is a little more than I want to spend right now. Maybe I'll eventually do it if I decide to keep the Jeep for a long time. Today I sanded,primed & painted the surface rust on the front floors. I laid the carpet in just to let it kind of take shape. The next step will be to attach it with velcro & reinstall everything.

The finished product. Didn't turn out too bad. Now I guess I have to get the seats redone because they are in pretty bad shape. Can you buy a kit to redo the seats yourself?

you should be able to get new seat covers and just replace the cover instead of the seat, that's what we did when i worked at land rover. bit of advice if you go that route, you'll need a set of side cutters, hog rings and hog ring pliers to do so, needle nose and peel them apart and reuse the hog rings.

The seller doesn't have alot of feedback because they are a new seller. But all feedback is positive so far. The ones I bought were actually $189.99 Buy-It-Now. I purchased a set of neoprene seat covers for my Tacoma a few years ago from this website. Seat Covers - Car Seat Covers - Truck Seat Covers – Auto Seat Covers & they are very nice. At about the same time that I got them, we got a set of Nissan seat covers from the dealer for my wife's X-Terra, & they were not near as nice & thick as the ones from Shear Comfort. I let my wife take the Jeep to work today, & she called me this morning to tell me that the check engine light came on while she was driving it. It wasn't on yesterday. I saw a post on here recently that said Jeep stands for "Just Empty Every Pocket". I'm beginning to find out that is true.
