The carpet has pads of heat resistance stuff on the bottom half. But as long as you have shoes on I wouldn't worry too much. You could always put the heat stuff under the tub at the same spot with some adhesive spray or use the bolts for the linkage tub bracket that are there to help.

stykthyn Nope. Heat comes from the tunnel. The exgaust is routed directly under there and the hot engine air is pushed there either from the cooling fan or forward motion
11-13-2011 04:19 PM
Kynaston1474 Because nothing has actually been done yet. I've had the Jeep for a whopping two days. :P Trust me, there will be pictures as I farkle.
11-13-2011 04:17 PM
Bruck Umm. How has no one asked for pics yet?
11-13-2011 04:08 PM
Kynaston1474 I was thinking the extra heat from removing carpet could be remedied by plugging the drainage holes.
11-13-2011 01:42 PM
Kynaston1474 You know, I have no idea but I would think it would be a good idea. I think you need to thoroughly sand the floor to promote adhesion.
11-13-2011 01:23 PM
loganInaYj That's what's everyone that sweats alot says ! Haha but i would do anything in the world to sweat normal . My head throbs when I get hot. Really quick . Beside our problems , haha I think I'm gonna remove my carpet today. Do I need to sand off the glue before I rhino line it?

I'll trade with ya, I have a disorder that makes me sweat too much. Seriously though, that sucks.

Kynaston1474 Toughen up buttercup. I was down in SC this summer around 120 in a full motorcycle suit and a full helmet in 120, sitting on a hot engine. Also, fix your AC! :P
11-13-2011 12:13 PM
stykthyn I put down some id the really thick deep well floor mats and it really cut down on the road noise but it didn't do much for the heat. I dd my rig and it was 101* and 85% humidity for most of the summer. As long as I kept moving it was tolerable. Getting gridlocked was a beotch.
11-13-2011 12:07 PM
loganInaYj Nice so it stays warmer huh? This might be a problem in the summer in Cali. Were I live it can sore to 125 degrees sometimes. And I DON'T have a/c :-(

Kynaston1474 I'm putting in a Herculiner on my next paycheck, the carpet is doomed, DOOMED i say! LoL
11-12-2011 06:32 PM
loganInaYj Really? I will have to keep that in mind. I've been wanting to rhino line the inside . The first time I went in the mud my carpets were destroyed. Haha

Mine seems even hotter inside without carpet.

loganInaYj Take some pics of it and some flex pics :-) heres my stock ass flex
11-12-2011 12:11 PM
Kynaston1474 Yea, that's right about where it idles. It sounds great it's very frequent. The engine was just rebuilt. I know the previous owner, he's a good friend. I know the entire history of the vehicle. The guy before him though was a DPO. Underframe is almost completely free of rust, what is there is just surface rust I'm going to hit it with some ACF50 after getting it off. (up here you have to salt proof)
11-12-2011 12:03 PM
GoldenSahara00 I idle 600-900 it actually bumps around every 15 seconds or so and depending on if I am running heater or ac
11-12-2011 11:59 AM
loganInaYj I've heard there supposed to idle around 900rpm . My jeep has a little problem with the idle sometimes drops as low as 300 ( according to the tach) and does not die. Yours seems fine
11-12-2011 11:54 AM
Kynaston1474 Pfft, cold! I scoff at your cold! I've been out on the motorcycle in -2F in the NC Mountains! :P I've been going over it all day. This thing is excellent condition. Question though, what is the engine supposed to idle at once it's warm? It's idling at just under a thousand seems low to me but I'm unfamiliar with these engines. (I can't wait to get familiarized with it though.)

loganInaYj Haha topless is fun .this was when I first got my jeep haha yeah the only thing with no carpet , it's cold!!!! Baha it's ok tho it's a jeep
11-11-2011 10:12 PM
Kynaston1474 I'm in NC. I got it to be sort of half project Jeep and half commuter. I needed something versatile and able to get around, because I live in the boonies. That and all the time I've spent on a motorcycle I like the idea of topless a LOT. :P (vibration is a selling point!) Also, I need to take the carpet out.
11-11-2011 10:08 PM
loganInaYj Sounds like me. I got my jeep . Re wired EVERY thing. Lol did the brakes, plugs , rotor cap, etc . Sounds like a great project jeep. What state you staying in?
11-11-2011 09:37 PM
Kynaston1474 I like it pretty good already. I'm trying to come up with a name for it. I'm stumped for now. :P
11-11-2011 09:34 PM
rjeepr It will be your new favorite toy! I just bought 3 for 1300. I rebuild/repair, paint and sell them, and sold my personal wrangler to finance the startup cost. So I haven't had a wrangler for almost a year. Now all I have to do is plumb the motor and body work and one of the three is gonna get "used" a bit more before it gets sold!
