i was hesitant to do it for a while because i was worried about the noise on long trips and stuff also the bare feet on the floor thing but mats will still go in. it will just make it that much easier to clean out. it sure is gonna be nice just to hose it out when it gets dirty
i work in a wood shop and it was amazing the sawdust i vacuumed out of it from under the carpet
this was an easy weekend project it was really hot so by the time i finished a coat the spot where i started was getting tacky so i just went in laps around the jeep. the stuff i used was Ducan deck coating (Xylene based not vinyl) they have a texture base coat and a color coat but i just used the color coat (Dover grey) there is also a sand that they sell to add for non slip. i just went with a smooth surface, it will be easier to clean and i will be building a cargo deck with drawers and stuff in the back anyway. total cost, if i didn't spill would have been $40 1 gallon and a few cheap brushes
i would really suggest a gas mask though i had 3 fans running and outside. i still had to do the hold breath and brush on then come out for a breather method
would have taken no time at all if i could have stayed inside brushing the whole time.... also wouldn't have spilled as much on my door jams.
heres the stuff i used. i got it at home depot $35 per gallon
