can i remove the carpet on my jk myself, or is it complicated? and what liner should i use if im gonna do it myself
How easily does it come in and out and is it flexible? My concerns just as with the carpet and mopar mats is salt still manages to get past to the bare metal. And at the price of those BedTreds it might more beneficial in the long run to just Line-X or equivalent the entire floor board.Ditto Mike -- at worst you'll need to "pull hard" on the carpet where it might be slightly captured by the seats. But you shouldn't need to cut anything. Just yank. Took that chit out of mine a year ago and never looked back. The way Wranglers leak when it rains, I'd just as soon not have that Pampers-backed fabric lying in my floorboards holding in moisture indefinitely. I ran bare paint for about two weeks till my BedTred came in. Installed that in about two hours one evening. Couldn't be happier.
I have the Bedtred too and love it. The noise is no greater than with the carpet. Bedtred is basically rubber carpet, look at it that way. It gives you the sound and heat protection of carpet but with waterproofability.NoGaBiker
I looked at the BedTred on their site and it looks interesting. How is the noise with them in?
It can't wick through the bedtred like it did your carpet. This past winter, the anchors for my slush mats would allow melted salty slush from my boots to wick directly into and through the carpet. The bedtred is going to be impermeable on the top side. They're like little tubs, not going to wick water.It looks like moisture and salt can still get up behind the BedTreds just like the mats and carpets, that's why I think line-x would be better.(atleast for me) I removed my front carpets last week after a long winter and salt had gotten past rubber mats, and carpet. Hated it and have been looking for w solution.
Before and After...Do you have a pic without the carpet?
How long did it take for the hurculiner to cure? Looks nice and i am thinking of doing the same thing.I pulled my carpet a couple months ago and used Herculiner and wrapped all the wires in plastic conduit. One of the best things I ever did. I also run the Mopar slush mats over the Herculiner.

Thanks, there are a bunch of tips I can give you if you really want to use the Herculiner, but two coats, put the second one on an hour after the first and then wait 24 hours before reinstalling anything.How long did it take for the hurculiner to cure?
