InfernoGirl U-pol Raptor liner is awesome, not to expensive, pretty sure it can be sprayed or rolled... Mine was sprayed by a buddy, looks great and protects the floor pans from all the grit that will eat through the paint to bare metal in about 3 days if you spend anytime outside with shoes on...... My carpet had probably never been removed till we took it out in Aug and I had a few rust spots from water + bare metal. They needed some quick attention prior to spraying but I was very happy to catch them in the early stages.
And yeah, a column cover will give you good peace of mind if you are planning on parking outside with the possibility of rain, if your clockspring gets wet, it will mess up a bunch of stuff, and they're kinda pricey to replace from what I hear.....
Vinyl seat covers from Bestop, or Iggee would be a very worth while investment as well, if you want to be pretty much impervious to water. If you can stand sitting on them.... Other wise prepare to arrive at work with a wet keester on occasion

anvando I recently removed the carpet and went with bedliner. It's awesome! the sound is dampened a lot and it looks great plus, like previously said, I don't have to worry about rain and mildew anymore. I had it professionally sprayed though, didn't trust a diy job. but definitely worth the money.

KeeblerKO If you just go with the bare factory painted floors eventually they're going to get scratched and scuffed up. It'll start to look like doody after a while.

Bedliner will give you back a little bit of the sound dampening effect your carpet had. A bedliner can really make your tub look snazzy after you take the carpet out. If you go with Herculiner, though, I'd recommend putting a topcoat of the UV protectant down or it will stain easier and start turning gray from the sun if your top is off a lot.

Several folks on here like the Raptor Liner too.

There's also the DirtyMudder covers made by WF's InfernoGirl. Great for protecting the gizmos in your steering column from moisture when your Jeep gets rained in overnight.

ygohome I'd just remove the carpet like you've done. neoprene seat covers sound like a good idea. But if it rains hard I'd remove the covers afterwards to allow any trapped moisture to evaporate. with the neoprene covers left on, the seats might get mildew.

Suggestions for Waterproofing Interior

Hey All,

Glad to be a part of the Wrangler Forum!

I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on waterproofing my Wrangler's interior. Specifically, I have a 2006 SE. The other night I left it out with the top off and it poured rain. I have since removed the carpets. Anyway, it seems like there are a bunch of different bedliners available. Do people have a preference for one over the others? Also, is a bedliner necessary? I'm sure it is if I'm lugging a lot of cargo, but I wasn't sure if it was overkill if I'm just looking to be protected against rain.

Aside from that, I was thinking of getting neoprene seat covers to protect the seats. Is there anything else you would recommend doing?

Thanks for your help!
