Im in the process of of putting a 350 in my 2001 TJ and i figured while i had the engine compartment empty, why not empty the tub. my idea is to pull the carpet out and line it with something but i dont know just what i want. i know i want to have something with some sound deadning. i looked at lizard skin by Eastwood but i dont know if it will last. i dont want to spend a lot of money on something that will not last. so here comes the question. jeep are a century old and iknow that im not the only one that doesnt like carpet. does anyone have any sugestion on what to use and not to. this is a daily driver and weekend warrior so i need something real tuff.

Lining the tub is a great mod but doesn't help with noise if anything it is worse. I Herc-U-Lined mine last spring and love it.

I don't exactly agree with the "if anything it is worse". Mine is def ALOT quieter
Maybe because I put 2 beautiful thick coats. By no means is it quieter than when there was carpet but since I've hurculined it compared to bare steel it's alot quieter

i feel ya goldtj. thats the whole reason im wanting to pull the carpet out. but i talked to the people at eastwood about the lizard skin and they told me that the lizard skin is a sound deadner and that theyve have people say that it was just as quiet as it was with carpet and that it was very durable.

and thay have it in beige/ sand color, so you wont even miss the OEM color of the carpet..:rofl:

seems to be a nice product!
Lol i saw a jeep where the guy did exactly that, tan bedliner inside, it looked alright but I was thinking of doing the forest green bedliner inside and the same color smooth durabak on the outside, anyone use the smooth finish durabak? my body is not very rusty besides the rocker panels but the paints pretty beat up
