spray in liner help with the heat?

I got my tj with no carpet and live in florida where im already seeing some warm days. I already have some liner that I plan on putting in but am wondering if it will be as good as carpet or help at all for insulation from the floorboard heat. I know it will be pretty hot when summer rolls around!

I'm from Florida too and i just bought a jeep that had no carpet and liner on the floor. I wouldnt have it any other way right now. It seems to have some air leaks and is a little warm on warm days, but nothing anyone can't handle. I'm actually going to get somemore and add a second coat very soon.

Its been in the mid to upper 70's here and im pretty sure my brain doesn't even comprehend what -12 would be like living in. That's a bit too cold for me!

Thanks infernogirl for the response. While the 100 degree days are a bit much, i deffinitely would prefer it to the freezing cold. I love the fl sun and short winters!

im sure it will help somewhat just because it is a coat over the tub but not to the extent youre looking for.

Look into lizard skin ceramic coatings. They are bad ass! (but not cheap) I saw a demo at sema where they painted half of an electric skillet and put ice cubes on both sides. The one with the super thin ceramic coating was over 90% ice when the other cube was 100% melted.

Honestly... living in Ohio, we deal with hot and humid days during the summer. Not uncommon to see 90*F with 80% humidity.

The heat from below isn't all that noticeable unless you drive barefoot. When driving topless though, the sun is what'll roast you out faster than anything. If you plan on driving topless and doorless most of the warmer months, check into a good sunshade. I personally like my SpiderWeb Shade...but there's other companies that make a similar product. It's not waterproof...but it's a mesh material that cuts down on wind noise and drastically reduces the amount of sun baking you (it's a lifesaver in stop and go traffic)...but because it's mesh, you still get that open air feeling.

However...don't get caught with it in a rain storm. Mesh tends to hold water...and release it all at once as soon as you hit a good large bump. lol

I really like that spiderweb shade. I wont be completely topless due to the sun in mid summer and that looks to be perfect for air flow and shade. I think im just going to spray in the liner that I already have when I get a free weekend unless someone has seen or used that lizard skin and witnessed a big difference.

Just my opinion-but have found if I am "traveling" like a couple hours on highway-and gonna MAYBE run a/c, cause of rain and humidity, or too much windnoise-I will put just the front carpet back in.

I do have the cheap spray on liner/underbody coating, over the roll on liner (yes 2 coats) and am very satisfied with the wear and functionality-however it does nothing for the heat-so my old carpet goes back in sometimes in the summer. I also use the carpet all winter to help catch the dirt, snow, mud,and salt, and keep it off of the floor-the mats can't catch all of it.

Our 70* days are a few weeks off yet- but they are coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK - HAPPY WHEELING!!!!
