Need New Floor Pans

Hey all! I'm looking for new front floor pans for my TJ, where's the best place to get them? I know Quadratec has them for 39.99 a piece, but I'd rather go through a fab shop or something cheaper. Any idea?

Thanks!

Moved to the fabrication shop. U sure you need new pans??? Are they rusted thru at all???? That looks like surface rust to me. Angle grinder and a can of spray paint and you are done.

Of course if there are holes, then obviously they need fixing but what I see there does not require a new floor pan.

Cheaper than $40? What are you expecting? $20? Maybe $15? Pans are just sheet metal. The labor is the expensive part.

It doesn't look like you need to pans. Not even close. 10 minutes with a sanding disk on an air grinder and that will be gone.

It's not too clear in the picture but there is a hole and I've grinded at it and there is rust all the way through. There is all surface rust and patches where it goes all the way through. Also, the hole is about 3" x 1.5" where the plug was. I figure a new pan is the better, long term fix. (but still not as good as a FG body : p)

I'm ready to spray it with UPOL but I need to fix this first.

A guy at the York, PA convention had ones that were perfect fit for around 20. I'd gladly pay 50 from Quadratec but I'm looking for something quick without too much forming so I can spray the UPOL before it gets too cold.

From what I can see, and you are lining it anyway, just cut out the old and slap in some 16 gauge sheet that you can get from HD/Lowes.

A full floor pan is overkill for your repair.

SERIOUSLY? I have a hole in the SAME SPOT! :
I'm thinking about going to a steel place near here to patch it with sheet metal. Its going to get monstalined as soon as I get that done.

It's a Jeep, ain't gotta be purdy.

Also grab some windshield seam sealer... 3M makes a great version of it. This stuff drys almost hard and is water tight. UOPL sprays right over it very nicely.
