Why Herculiner?

What's the deal with Herculiner on the floor boards? I see all the posts on how to do it, prep, ya ya ya....but no explanation on why and what the benefits are. Thanks for the input...

Matt

I had my tub Rhino lined - some of the reasons were:
No maintenance
No soggy carpet
reduced interior noise level
cooler floorboards under my feet
rust prevention

Mine also wraps over the top of the tub and around the door and tailgate openings so I don't have to worry about scratching the paint when removing/installing the hard top or doors.

Is it really cooler or at least as cool as carpet? Heat is my big concern and why I haven't done it yet.

I ran mine with no carpet for about a year and a half and never noticed any real increase in heat. Herculiner is good for all the reasons mentioned and it cheap and easy to do.

Okay, so my '91 has Herc inside, and my wife's '93 doesn't (yet!) and here's the reason I like having it.

I was driving her YJ the other day, and my cellphone starts ringing while it's in my front pocket. I raise my arse up a bit to retreive it, while bracing my left foot on the floor to push against. My foot kept slipping on her slick floor, and being as I use the same manuver in my YJ with no problem, that's a good enough reason for me.

The main reason I did it was for rust protection. Second is the no-slip grip, and third because it just looks darn good! Plus it's (relatively) cheap.

i dont run a top in the summer and i dd it, so having water in my jeep is a common occurance. after a while of getting in and out the paint will wear off your floor boards, and rust. Herc will not do this.

Wash and wear. After a day in the Alabama mud it's easy to hose it out and let it air dry.

Darker color on the inside is also nice if you dont have carpet. I have a red yj and looking back at the bright red inside compared to the black herculiner, it's much easier on the eyes, and the no slip surface is nice.
