Alright.... thanks for the feedback guys. I'll be back on here in a few hours. Time to get back to work for now though

*edit* I guess I just have to whine and complain more often to get some attention in here, huh? hahahahaha

I'm just trying to figure out which way will be cheaper in the long run/easier to clean. I don't want to spend a couple hundred on husky liners and then in 2 years decide to bedline it. If I bedline it, I'll have to wait till summer so I'm out of school and not going anywhere b/c I can always ride my bike to work. So that and getting rock sliders might be my summer project.

Guess I'll stop lurking too - keep up the good work! You've certainly put a lot into this Jeep already. Can't wait to see how the bed liner works out - I'm thinking about doing that to my XJ as well.

What brand sliders are you thinking about? They're on my list as well, but I need to quit the $$ spending for a bit after I get this floor done. I'll do a few things here and there, but nothing too big for a bit. That's the plan anyway.

Is that a problem Or do you mean, because I have the front sprocket cover zip tied up? I was changing it out when I took that pic

It's only a death machine if you don't respect it and you MAKE it one

I'm going to get the JCR off road stage 3 sliders. I'd order them when I get my tax refund in the next week but I'd rather not have them sit around until after this semester and I have time to paint them. They're kind of expensive especially with shipping but I think it's worth it to spend it to protect the rocker panels and the bottom of the doors

dag you jumped right on that floor. sux that pulling up the carpet is usually shocking, but I've seen em in lots worse shape. you caught it before things got really bad. here's my favorite rust busters.



where's the new floor panels? how big are they? you gonna chop em down or use the whole thing?

I'm using the exact same dewalt angle grinder except I was using a flap wheel and then stepped it up to a grinding disk. Works GREAT. I don't think the wire wheel would be enough of a beast for this stuff, but it WOULD speed it up if it was

I didn't snap any pics of the floor pans yet. I just have them laying in there. I want to finish up with the passenger side and cargo area. I want the rust ground down, rust converter brushed on, and the self etching primer sprayed. Then I'll take care of the few small spots in those areas that need some patching. THEN I'll move to the swiss cheese passenger side.
I'll be using the floor pans whole. I got one for the front and one for the rear, so together they take care of that whole side.

Speaking of which.... heading out to do a bit of grinding right now.
