XJ floorboards don't match up quite right, but have been made to work with some effort (and a big hammer). The junkyard is another option, but it's not exactly easy to get the floors out since there are a gazillion spot-welds holding them to the frame.
Jeep on!

Pete, I've heard of some guys just cutting some steel and welding it in. The "band-aid" fix being they don't even cut out the rusted floor, the "pro shop" fix being the do all the proper prep. Either way, what do you see as the pros and cons of this versus the difficulty in trying to get factory floorboards? Mine are going to need replacing soon so I'm curious of the opinions out there. Thanks......

How bad are your floor boards??? Pics????

As far as I know, your not going to find drop in MJ Floorboards anywhere. Bet thing to do is "cut and paste" for lack of a better term. See my rust repair thread in my sig. The only thing they make for the YJ is the front floor pans, everything else, I am fabbing up myself.

SO, in short, how much rust are we talkin about here???

I'm far from being a competent welder so all I know personally is the bandaid fixes. My 88 has aluminum sheets screwed and glued in place. I've got some scrap sheets of galvanized steel I'll be adding into my newest MJ. My goals are simply to prevent water and rocks from intruding into my cab. I'll cut out as much of the rust as I can, but it's pretty much a lost cause so I don't take it to seriously.
But there are plenty of guys who think nothing of it to grab some raw 14 gauge steel, the hammer and the Mig and go to town replacing everything the right way. It all depends on your skill level and what you want out of your truck in the end.
Jeep on!

While we are on this subject.... I am attempting to replace my floor boards which are not too bad, but too thin to play with. I am in the process of (after buying the replacement floor boards), trying to remove the (upper) frame brace. It is now, after drilling out many spot welds, flapping in the breeze....EXCEPT.. the rear two inches of it!!! I can not find out where it is being held on, but this must be a "Jeep" thing.
This delemma backs up my thoughts as far as how well Jeeps are made, but it makes me mad when I can't even take it apart. I will try to post a pic of where I am talking about, but I sure would like to get this baby out in one piece since it is still in good shape. HELP!

Okay, here is a picure of where it will not give.
This is a shot from the pass side door looking at the rear part of the brace.
.........By the way, does anyone make this piece anymore? I have searched everywhere and can not find this "upper brace".!!!! A guy could make a mint making these if not!

Somebody today said something that was cool. Don't polish a turd, get down to the bottom of it and make it nice! I guess he meant, do it right the first time, or do it again better the second time. Comanches apply.

I just bought some from C2Cfabrication. Too short. E-Bay has some that are full length. I have seen them. These are what you want if you are wanting more than about two feet from the firewall.

my MJ has the same problem. getting that upper brace off is a pain. lots of spot welds to drill. i cant find the replacement brace. about 1/3 of mine isnt usable. i could make it work but id feel better just getting new ones. i was wondering how important is that brace? can i just use the floor pan without the brace? i want to mount XJ seats so the mounting brackets are different. if i didnt use that brace that sure would be easier. but it would be about 180 bucks to get the front and rear pans on both sides. if im gonna do it i want to do it right.
