Carpet removal.

Today i was thinking, and since i can never keep the damn carpet clean, what if i just take it off? It might look stupid it might look better. Has anyone done this to their ZJ? If I'm not mistaken this is something JK's have...

I've heard some people pull their carpet, and Rhino line, or use some other type of rubber product on the floor.
I'm not sure, but I would think the carpet acts as an insulator, to help keep noise and heat levels down in the cabin.
As I haven't pulled my carpet up, I don't know if you'd have a lot of exposed wiring, but the wiring I have seen, runs under the door sill plates and behind the interior body panels, and the only thing I think of that might be exposed would be any wiring used for power seats, if you have them.

So would it be a bad idea to take it off ?

I had my carpet out for about 2 weeks. The only reason I pulled it out was so I could pressure wash it, and it took me a while to find time to put it back in. I didn't get any heat issues, but the noise level sucked. I was quite happy when I got it back in. And there is a lot more wiring under the carpet than I would've thought.
