Start with a shop vac, and then shampoo the hell out of it. What exactly is messed up about it? Soda? Food? Love stains?

Well it seemed like the owners before me had never vacuumed or detailed the interior whatsoever, i found french fries, lollipops, candy wrappers, 4.50 cents in quarters , and just gunk, it really is a
mess. ive spent 8 hours cleaning it so far.

Take the top off of it, put your bathing suit on and take it to the car wash. Pressure washer inside and out. Then drive it around town for 15-30 minutes to dry it out and your problem is solved. Your jeep is clean and it only the quarters in the pressure washer 10 minutes spraying and 15-30 minutes driving to dry it.

Easy. Three steps

1. Pull out carpet

2. Throw in nearest trash receptacle

3. Bed line floor and enjoy.

Or if you're really dead set on keeping the carpet, take it out and power wash it in the driveway with either Dawn dish washing soap, or use some kind of automotive soap.

The automotive soaps have a better smell though IMO.

Beats the **** out of me, YJs don't though!

I'll try and get you the name of the stuff we wash the trucks with at my company. Stuff smells good, almost like bubble gum only not, and it cleans the **** out of anything it touches.

EDIT: I think it's a wax soap or something, it makes the trucks really shiny afterward. Almost like a wax job.
