Rusty floor
 
Ok- so I've found a nice, red '94 4.0 with 5-speed. Rides pretty nice, looks good- no rust EXCEPT a nice size hole in the driver's side floor. I was wondering, how much will this run to fix? Would I need a new floorpan, or can I put a plate on it or somesuch? The price is right, the miles aren't bad, and the rest of the Jeep is in good shape- he said the old top leaked right over the hole. It's not big enough for me to put a hand through. Thanks in advance :) Mark W.

Meh- the guy turned into a jerk- would only give $200 off despite "forgetting" to mention that it's got bald ass tires, the hole in the floor, a salvage title... yeah- f that :) Thanks anyways! Mark W.

I had a 1963 Chevy truck with 3 layers of full length rubber floor mats. They kept my feet off the pavement.
Didn't want to drive using the Fred Flintstone method.

We'll have some jeep floor mats by the end of the week which my brother had purchase. He agrees that it really helps him feel comfortable.
