What sealant is used on the floor pan plugs?
 
I cleaned up some rust the PO didn't get before bedlining the inside of the tub. I had to take out the 2 3/4" plug in the drivers side pan and it had some super sealant holding it in. Anyone know what the stuff is? I would rather use that than something like RTV or silicone because the bed liner won't adhere to those. JB weld would be a last resort.

It's known as seam sealer, go down to ur local autobody or paint supply store and ask for it. Doubt ull find it at a parts store, other option is to order it online. 3m makes a good seam sealer...

I leave mine out too , although it sucks when you forget they're out and and the river is a lot higher than you remember :rolleyes: = wet feet

I
m considering that as well There's no increase in noise and I don't have any carpeting. I might fab some inserts for the winter to keep out the snow and slush.

I got some plastic ones. I forget where I got them but they have teeth so when you tap them in they stay there. Really easy to put in.

Rubber expansion plugs from tractor supply. They have all the sizes in the floor and just need a wrench to tighten them up. About a buck a piece if I remember right

I'm not 100% sure these little drain plugs are what you are after, but I used these from quadratec on our YJ.

they stay in without sealer. I think you need 11 for the entire pan.

Thanks, but those aren't what I'm after. The factory has 2 3/4" holes right in the center of the floor pans on each side. They have a metal plug and are glued in there with sealant. I'm getting some samples from a few manufacturers to see if they will work. Nobody seems to have 2 3/4" though.

You do want a normal auto body seam sealer. Get a 1-quart can and an acid brush to brush it around the plug.
