The ideal CJ interior/CJ aftermarket vinyl interior
Hi— have any of you installed an aftermarket molded vinyl interior inside your CJ? Specifically, I'm looking at the ACC Molded Vinyl Kit.
When I take the body off the frame next year and weld in new floor pans, I intend to use Raptor Liner or Line-X on the entire interior. But I'm not going to use a bedliner right now because of some pretty substantial rust & holes in the pan right now underneath the factory carpet kit...so unless anyone strongly recommends against it, I'm going to throw a vinyl kit in there to get me through this season, hoping for the added effect of more sound-deadening. I need something between me & the road, between me & exhaust fumes, insulation, and just general reinforcement of the floor pan, but I'm not beginning frame-off this close to time to use the Jeep for scouting & rambling.
I need the interior to be rugged. Additionally, I was considering putting molded vinyl in on top of a layer of Dynamat insulation on top of the Line-X/Raptor anyway. A 1978 CJ is cold in the winter.
My ideal CJ interior would be constructed thus:
1st layer: POR15
2nd layer: Line-X
3rd layer: Dynamat
4th layer: Molded Vinyl
But for now, does anyone have pics of a CJ with a molded vinyl kit, ACC or otherwise? I'd really like to see what they look like in the vehicle. And does anyone have any experience/pros & cons with vinyl kits to share?
The problem with Jeeps is that everyone fancies himself some kind of Adventurer after he buys one. As if courage, or ruggedness, can be had for a mere $27,745 MSRP
