TJ Carpet Removal ???

I need to remove the carpet that is directly behind the front seats.

I unsnapped it, and started to lift it up. It seems that the carpet doesn't want to let go, right there at the console.

Do you have to remove or lift the center console to be able to remove the carpet?

I'm sure that I will get flamed for asking this, but, once I pull the carpet out, how do I get the carpet back under the console?

easiest way would be loosen the console and lay carpet back under there

Put a few treats under the console and it will go back on its own.

But I'm not sure what to feed it.

You should feed that carpet to your garbage can, first thing I've done to every tj I've owned.

Carpets are for houses, not for Jeeps. Get some spray or roll-on bedliner and coat the tub. Then instead of needing to get a vacuum out to your Jeep you just hook up the garden hose and spray it out (makes sure you pull the drain plugs)

I agree to just getting rid of the carpet, I just had a shop rhino line my tub for 500 bucks, you can do it yourself but I suck at painting jobs. The lining looks great and will last a lot longer than carpet.

Naw, can't do it.

Maybe one day, but today's not THAT day.

Everything inside is in primo condition. The interior is not ragged out. Nothing is torn.

One day it won't be. When that day comes, the carpet might go. But, until then, the carpet stays.

The reason I want to (TEMPOARILY) remove the carpet is because I spilled a drink while folding the back seat. I just want to clean the carpet, dry everything out, & put the carpet back in.

Like I said, maybe one day, but for now, the carpet stays.

Careful about the floorboards if you leave in the carpet, retains moisture and rusts the floor. My jeeps interior is in "primo" condition as well BECAUSE I took out the carpet.

mine is also in "primo" condition and my carpet is in! Taking care of your vehicle goes a long way. If and when my carpet gets wet, I pull it out to let it dry thoroughly then put it back in. Takes about 5 minutes to pull out or put back in.

Dont want to hijack thread BUT is it really that easy to remove and reinstall? I love my carpet but reading everything on here has got me really paranoid. Have a long weekend coming up so will probably just remove it and figure it out for myself but are there any tricks to make it a 5 minute job?
