Bedlining floors with factory wires all over.

I want to take the carpet out of my jeep and monstaline my floors but my jeep has power windows, locks, mirrors and everything so there is a bunch of wires strung across the floor. Im curious if anybody has done this before and whats the best way to do it having all these wires everywhere, am i gonna have to rewire and relocate my wires somewhere and if so how would i go about it?

When we did my friends jeep , we put all the wires in Black wire lume . Then bedlined the floor (wires and all) . But in my brothers jeep we put the wires in lume and bedlined under the wires . that way the wires could be accessed (if) there was ever a problem .. So its more just a personal preference ..

Yea i kinda see what your sayin, i dont think i would line over them but if i could bedline under them and somehow have a tough loom to go over the wires so they wouldnt get messed up that might work...

Put them in loom and try to organize them as best you can imo. Zip ties will be your friend.

Mine were already wrapped from the factory, I just made sure to route them so the wires wouldn't get wet when I washed out the cab.

Check out the braided plastic kind:

I've used this, but you have to disconnect a wire to run it inside.
If you'd rather not disconnect wires then look at the plastic kind with a split down the side.

Also if you use Raptor liner you can color tint it to match your paint or anything else for that matter.

For a tough wiring cover use garden hose slitted down its length and zip tied shut. I used black hose before and didn't look bad.
