Floor pan drain plugs

Did my interior with monstaliner and now need to plug all the drain holes... What have people used with good luck, the hard rubber ones by Crown or the ebay plastic ones? Or perhaps something else? I checked the diameter and they all seem to be about 15/16 across...

Check Lowes or Home Depot as well. You might find something on the cheap and just as good.
Just a thought.....

You can get 3/4 inch plastic knock out plugs (in the electrical aisle) from any hardware store for cheap and that what I use.

My plug holes are covered by rubber floor mats...not a plug in sight.

This is my 5th CJ...never had plugs in any of them.

As mentioned, you can find them in the fastener section of a hardware store. Before you go, measure! the holes changed size from year to year.

I use them as I ford streams frequently. I'm also remember to remove them when necessary. Don't be afraid to pull the plugs if you need to!

Without plugs, the tires will kick dust, water, mud, gravel, even thumb-sized rocks inside, especially near the roll bar mounts and front floor pans. This not only makes a friggen mess, it contributes to the rot that is so common in these areas.

I found these nice aluminum plugs at my local hardware store. They stay in place and hold up longer than the factory plastic plugs...and they look good.

Fiberglass body = no rot. Rubber floor mats = no splash, rocks, dust. I have two rubber plugs in my console, haven't had them in for over 6 years.
