Need AZ opinions: bedlining the Jeep

So, I'm resolved to Monstaline the Jeep. It is one of an ever-growing list of projects I'll undertake if I can ever get word back from the bank about an offer we have in on a place (with a 3-car garage, no less!). Here's why I'm writing:

I didn't know I was moving to Arizona when I bought my Jeep (in VA at the time). So, now I'm "that guy" driving around in a black TJ, with a black top, with the charcoal/black interior. And (at the moment) no garage. Because of this, I'm considering monstalining in colors other than black.

Give me your input about your lining experience and how it has affected the temperatures in your Jeep, specifically with the top off.

Did you use a color other than black? If so, what did you use? Do you feel your choice of color helped keep the floorboards and interior from getting crazy hot?

Did you use black? If so, how bad does it seem to heat up in the AZ sun?

The two colors I'm looking at (besides black) are the "light quartz gray" and "medium quartz gray," shown here:

Some paint chips arrived today. Here they are next to the center console:




And here resting on the passenger's side chicken handle:




I definitely like the look of the medium quartz better, but it's noticeably darker and worry that it'll be just that much hotter in the sun.

Weigh in!

Ike

I'd go with the Quartz.The red clay soil out here would turn the other to yuk in no time.I think i talked to you before on this but i have a black bedliner spray in mine.Had it done local and it gets hot but you can hold your hand on it.Quartz would probably be a little cooler and less to show dirt.
I think the texture of the material is what makes it cooler.Kinda like the cool deck they spray on swimming pool decks.

I like the darker grey. Do yourself a favor and take LOTS of pictures BEFORE you do it so when you sell the Jeep you can show you're not covering up rust. Lining is something you want to do to your Jeep, not necessarily what you want to buy with your Jeep.

I've decided to wait until I have a garage! Unfortunately that won't happen until sometime early in 2012 (mid Feb, probably).

If I was going to pull the trigger today, I'd go with the darker of the two shades.
