Theres a lot of positives and really just one negative for me about lining a tub . I like that everything is sealed and protected , which makes it much easier to clean with the kids. Its also deadens the noise a little , the only downfall is the heat transfer from the exhaust . Currently I use the old floor mats to keep our feet from roasting on longer trips . At some point in the near future I would like to make something a little more substantial . If you go with liner keep your carpet until you decide whether or not the floors get to hot for you.

Are you going to go the DIY route or pay to have it done ? My experience with Line-X has been much better than the Herculiner I had previously used . When I was researching about DIY liners for my trailer tub the Raptor seemed to be the most liked of the DIY stuff commonly available . After everything I read I still decided to go with Line-X in the trailer as it only costs a third more than doing it myself and I believe its a better product .

Well, despite the water crossings we did yesterday and Alice staying dry - I got what was coming to me.

I didnt think it was going to downpour as much as it did this morning. I still didnt put the windows on after last night. There is a solid 2" of water in the Jeep. Gotta take the floor plugs out before I go home for lunch.

So- I figure now is a good time to rip out the carpets and get my bedliner on.

I still have my drain plugs in. Im going to try to borrow some pliers at work and see if I can remove them without fussing too much so I dont have to drive home with my boots floating on a mat.

Worth it either way.

Interesting thoughts. I'm still on the fence but leaning towards not doing bedliner. I understand the benefits, but I think it would drive me nuts in the end. Especially if it has a rough, sandpaper like texture that I've seen with truck bedliners.

I've actually had my eye on on BedRug's BedTread product. Seems like the best of both worlds. For the most part.

You'll have to let me know when you put it on so I can come up and watch.

The Jeep

Put in an order for a Dynomax catback today through Summit today. Hopefully it will fix my current problem and have better clearance when I put the UCF skid back on.

I see no downside to bedliner... you can put carpet back in over it & there's less worry about moisture under the carpet. Whatever carpet you have, moisture will get under it & having a protected surface is a plus imo

Absolutely. I think I will begin my prepwork next week and shoot to do it next weekend. I went for the monstaliner because it doesn't have a rubber crumb filler that would give that rough texture. I like to sit on my Jeeps bed and sometimes I don't like to wear pants. So - rough bedliner was definitely out of the question for me.

Got the Dynomax cat back installed. It took care of the vibrations I was feeling through the pedal and the Jeep it's self. The next step is to try and reinstall the UCF skid and see how the new exhaust clears the tub and track bar, although looking at the clearances as they stand now it's not looking so good.

To update the above, for the moment at least, I've been able to work out all the know bugs. With the stock T-case skid installed. Tomorrow I've got a short trip to the local state forest planned as a small shake down. Assuming nothing else pops up I'll try to reinstall the UCF skid next week.
