Question Carpet replacement?

Hello all. I'm ready to trash the original carpet in my 95 YJ and was looking for suggestions on what I should use as a floor liner. Do people suggest new carpet or something different like a spray liner? I'm leaning towards the spray because it's easier to keep clean but I've heard it can result in lots of messy wires in view. Thoughts???

Yeah, spray/brush/roll in liners bet the most press. It's a excellent way to permanently rust proof your entire tub from the inside out. However there are other methods. Check out www.4wd.com for your year and notice some of the piece in vinyl liners and such. They look pretty tough, just haven't seen them up close.

FWIW, I bought a 95 yj 6 years ago that had been wrecked. It came with no carpets at all. I found a 1 piece front mat set (that went over the hump), added a set of custom rear floor and cargo area matts cut from a discounted PU bed liner matt. All rubber. Worked great and was easy to clean. It was a little noiser than carpet at highway speeds though. If the carpets ever go south in my latest 92' yj, I'd go that route again.

I'm getting mine Line-X'd. Local guy here says bring it to him with nothing other than the drivers seat in it, and he'll do the whole interior tub (floors, rockers, trunk, and I'm going to have him overlap the exterior to do "entry guards" also) for $650 for me. Same as the truckbeds, 1/4" thick minimum, and I'm going to pre-run all my stereo wires along the doorsills to keep them out of sight. That way when he sprays he'll seal them all in place, leaving just the tails coming out at my amp and speaker locations.

650 is a pretty good quote, especially without prepping the tub. I got quoted 800 even If i did the prep.

I'm gonna go for herculiner or duraliner this spring when I can do it when the weather is more forgiving. It goes for a little over 100 bucks for the kit (gallon of material and rollers and brushes) and is a solid weekend project.

some people say it does not resist heat as well, though many other disagree. Personally i think being able to hose out the interior is awesome though.

There may be an even better way to go about, I was looking on ebay the other day for spray in bedliners, and there is a company that sells a kit with a spray gun the standard or heavy duty (granulated rubber) liner goop for pretty cheap, and you can get it in any color just about. That's what I'm probably gonna do since I already have a compressor. This way you could spray it to the thickness you want, put it where you want it and not have to pay for somebody to do it.

Well....don't leave us hanging. Do you have a link to this company? I have been leaning towards the Herculiner myself, but a do it yourself spray in kit just might be the way to go.

I like my herculined tub... But when it gets wet, the herc. turns a wierd milky color. this goes away when its dry but dont know if there is long term problems...I was thinking about doing the bottom 8-to 10 inches of the OUTSIDE w/ something of this nature. to protect rust at corners and whatever. then put on some side rail gaurds over that. (this will also inhibit drill holes from rusting where the side rails mount) also help against trail branches and the like. But inside it is kool! I also installed some boat plugs in the floor pans so I can let all the water out.

Ok Guys, here it is. If you go on ebay the company name is trkspecialist and to get to it just type in: spray in bedliner , This will get you where you need to be. The kit comes with a spray gun and about 1 3/4 gallons of material. small kit (specifically says to do a jeep tub) has a buy it now price of $85 plus $20 shipping. Color will be more. Hope this info helps.

Thanks, two good ideas. The boat plugs...cool. And I like the Idea of using the Herculiner under the Rocker Guards. My Rocker Guards cover up the existing rust so I am concerned that it will eventually rot out underneath. This will help.

Warrior Products. I can't remember where I bought them, but you should be able to search for their site. Remember, 2" lift shackles will net you 1" of lift, they are 2" longer than the stock shackles and only lift one end of the spring. The are very beefy, welded instead of bolted together and I have no concern of them flexing or breaking.
