tub liners

So I'm thinking of ripping out the carpet and herculining the tub. If anyone has done this, is it worth the price? Does it allow much heat transfer from the undercarriage (i.e. if I drive barefoot will I be uncomfortable)? Can you apply multiply layers to avoid previous question? Any other thoughts would be helpful.

Lots and lots of topics on this a quick search will bring up a lot of opinions.

Your questions

1. Yes
2. Not too bad. You can make some heat shielding from roof flashing and lay it down first.
3. See 2

There's been a few threads on this in the past few weeks...search "herculiner", and "rhino", things like that.

Based on what I've read the pass side gets warmer than the drivers due to Catalytic converter.

I'd like to see what it looks like with the roof flashing down, and herculiner on top of it....I've used the roof flashing before to quieten cars...just based on that I'm not too confident in how it'd look under the lining..or if the lining would stick to it.

I'll be trying it pretty soon to see how it goes.

i just did it to my tj 2 weeks ago. i did a write up on it click me. it is definitely worth the price, but i strongly recommend going with herculiner (or equivalent) not the rustoleum or duplicolor. i used duplicolor on the roll bars on my cj and it was ok, but it was not the desired texture or consistency. the herculiner will last and take abuse. if you leave the carpet out it will be noticabley louder while driving, but hey it's a jeep.

i had mine done at a paint & body shop and its great! i dont know what its called, but it was used by a buddy of mine in his truck to haul oilfield pipe and equipment, so its pretty tuff! they said it was made from recycled tires. do most of the removal(seats,brackets,etc..) to cut down on costs. very durable, much better than the store bought stuff. oh yea, i know what I did about the catalytic converter problem!
