Replacing floors on a Cherokee

I bought my jeep a couple months ago and know there was some rust but I had no idea I had so much until i tore the carpet to bedline it but now I've got a u-pol raptor kit sitting at home until I replace the floors. Basically I started this thread to document my replacement and if anyone want to give me advice or experience. now for some pictures.

Vaccum and clean the inside of the rails when the floors are out and then hit them with some rustoleum or POR-15 for sure.

Also Raptor Liner I don't think will prevent rust from growing, so when you get the new pans in I would suggest at the very least coating with something that is designed to prevent rust growth (rustoleum and por-15 again, a quart of POR would probably be enough to coat the entire floor).

I did this with mine a year and a half ago, and not even the slightest rust bubble has shown. I also didn't have to replace the floors so I wan painting over the original metal.

Def keep this thread updated, always love seeing floor replacement projects.

Cheers and feel free to PM if you need any advice on the paint side of things. I have yet to lay down my raptor kit, but will update my build thread one of these days and let you know when I do.

The Blacksmith was going to throw in some new floors, but it's turned into a full restore and build. LOL! Definitely check out his thread for some good ideas.

Thanks for the reponses! well the passenger seat used to connect to that little tab where on the frame but im pretty sure it rused away years ago. The Blacksmith- I just got got done reading your write up it part of my inspiration to replace the floors instead of buying a new Cherokee. I just don't think i have the time with work and school to completely fab up new floors.

park it and grab a cheap beater. You wont regret it, well that is if you intend on keeping this specific cherokee forever. If not, youll never get you labor back.

chassis saver > rustoleum
