Thank you. That's what I'm trying to say. I just hate to see them put to waste.

Maybe they are like me and are setting it up for their kids when they die? Really though so what if they want to spend a bunch of money on Mods, that will be a "gently used" Jeep for someone to off road later.

My TJ is fairly well "set-up" but I always laugh to myself when I get the WTF look for guys in their Modded out Rigs when I am driving the STOCK '12JK.

That is okay I have the best of both worlds!!

Im just giving my opinion, but I do see where you are coming from. but also a lot of people in my town have modded out JKs that they just did cause it looks good. They are too afraid to mess it up on a trail. I know this because I know them haha. and they are my age so they dont have any kids to hand it down to, but like I said, I dont have anything against JKs I just hate to see them wasted like that.

Not wasted they are saving them for the future wheelers......JK a little.... lighten up their Jeep what they do is their business...same as I don't MOD the JK it is for street use only..is that a waste? IMO not for the piece of mind it gives me for my wife to drive in the winter and have the best chance of being fine and doing "all right". She wasn't sure she wanted it at first.

She is to the point now that it is the only thing she wants to ride in or drive. We bought a new '13 300 for "Road Trips" and she doesn't like it as well as her JK on the highway or in town!!

If your concerned about value then you want bone stock. But at any rate just keep your carpet to put back in if you sell it, then you can say its beeline underneath (which prevents rust) but still has the comfort of carpet (which provides heat protection.

The value of a Jeep, or anything for that matter, is what someone is willing to spend on it. Someone said to keep it stock for value, I disagree. A stock Jeep is only valuable to someone who does not want it tricked out. For someone who wants to play, a stock Jeep is virtually valueless; unless they are wanting to do the mods themselves. Modding one up increases the value for someone wanting it modded; yet you will never get out what you paid for the mods. Yet, I've only met one person who would mod a Jeep as a hobby then sell it; most others use it.

When we were looking for our Jeep, we wanted the lift already done; but were willing to make any other mods. The first thing my wife had me do is strip out the carpet and bed line it. I used the Herculiner gal can and it came out sweet. The only thing of this is its best to use a paint mixer in a drill and keep it constantly stirred. I took out the plugs and got metal tack strips from Lowes, and cut them to size, just a little larger than the drain holes. I glued the strips on with the liner and this provided drains without having a gaping hole to loose thing out of. Also, living in Ga, we have not hear issue coming from the floor.

The cost was right around $100 (give or take according to what you already have). It shouldn't take no more than about 5 hours; stretched over two days. I use to do paint and body on motorhomes and I'm certified 3K systems; so I had a time advantage and did it in about 3 - 4 hours.

What you will need, for a durable job is:
1 Gal Herculiner
1 Scotch Bright Pad
1/2 gal laquer thinner
1/2 gal mineral spirits
small paint roller with two rolls
two inexpensive paint brushes
drill
metal paint mixer for use in the drill to stir the mixture.

I did it with the front seats still in the vehicle. Remove the back seat (if you have one in there) and all the carpet. There are a couple warning tags on the transmission tunnel; ignore those and tear them off; lol. Strap up your rear seat belts to the roll cage.

Trim the tack strips to fit the drain holes. I used on one each side in the rear and two on each side in the front. They should be slightly larger than the hole but able to fit down into the body line of the floor, over the hole. Don't leave square edges, round them off so as it's less likely for future snags.

Dividing your thinner and mineral spirits into three parts, mix 1 part thinner and 1 part mineral spirits. Do not use thinner straight up as it can cause paint to peel; depending on the paint used in vehicle. This mixture will burn cuts and be absorbed into the skin. If you don't like either of these, you may want some chemical gloves. With the scotch bright pad soaked with the solution, scuff all the painted area's you want the line to be.

Once all the surface is sanded with the scotch bright pad, mix a fresh 1 part thinner and 1 part mineral spirits. With clean rags soaked in the solution, clean over all the area to be coated. This took about five rags. Then, repeat with the last mixture of fresh solution and fresh rags.

Once the surface is dry, it does not take long, stir the Herculiner for a couple minutes to make sure it is well mixed. With a paint brush, brush some liner around the drain holes then place the cut tack strips into the area and dab more liner over. Dab so as the liner does not fill the small holes; or you can take a small drill bit afterward and reopen the holes.

I started from the rear and poured a small portion of liner in the tub of the Jeep then used a roller to smooth it out over the floor, up the fender wells, and anywhere I wanted the liner. I dipped the roller in the can to put on the inside of the tailgate.

Once the rear is finished, move the seats forward and do the rear floor board. Be careful of the drain plugs so you don't slide them out of place. Then move the seats back and do the front floor boards.

Let it dry over night and put a fresh coating on in the morning. It will be ready to drive by that evening, if it's a nice warm day; or you can wait until the next day.

I drive truck for a living and I'm on the road right now. I'll be home by the third weekend of March and I will get some pictures of what to use and how it looks; maybe make a small video of the process.

If you keep an eye on the auto part stores, they run specials on Herculiner periodically. I bought mine from Auto Zone. It was the kit which came with the scotch bright, one brush, and one roller; with the liner of course. I think it was $80 (don't quote me) and I got a $40 dollar mail in rebate for it.
