I really don't understand truck lining ZJs, where/how do you plan on hiding the wiring?

Most of all the wires are hidden by the side paneling. And I did it so it would be protected from salt during the winter and be easier to clean all the gobs of mud I get in there from wheeling. Lol

Great Jeep, I need threads like these because I too am trying to build a 95. In regards to your first few posts, were you running 31" tires on stock suspension there? How did that work out?

EDIT Never mind I read that you got BB before putting those on. Something I'd like to do; what kit did you get how did that work out as far as rubbing is concerned?

For the rubbing issue you'll need to get rims with less back spacing or wheel spacers to stop the rubbing and you might have to trim your bumper a bit. And thanks

Are you going to put drainage plugs in it?

You should really take the headliner out too if you're going with the metal interior IMO. Looks brilliant in mine.

Ive heard that it help retain heat well inside if you have the heater on and stays colder inside if you have the ac on. Compared to regular carpet insulation. But I didn't understand what you said in your last post.

Ran around town for about 30 min the only part of the floor that was really warm was a small area to the right and behind the pass side. The rest was nice and cool
