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?

Thanks.

Cold in ATL?

I have a temp floor too. Great Stuff spray insulation and 7/16 OSB cut to fit. Free fromstuff in garage. Don't spend it if you don't have to.

Yes sir...you'd be surprised at some of the winters we've had here in the South recently. It's reached the 'teens in at least the last couple of years. Add to that any extended outdoor activity— you're talking COLD. I think I came close to frostbite (not in the Jeep) in January of this year.

As far as reinforcing a tub against the elements goes, Great Stuff isn't a half bad idea! Seems like it would be weird or messier when Line-X time comes, though, maybe? And how did you apply yours— spot, or an even coating in the tub? As far as plywood goes, I could consider that, maybe, but still underneath vinyl matting of some sort. You have bare plywood in the inside of your Jeep? That makes me smile! My original 'temp' plan was to use sheet metal cut to fit, then pop-rivet in in place & use Black Jack or fiberglass jelly to seal— then cover with a vinyl kit.

Fording streams, or opting to sleep in the Jeep instead of pitching the tent, are my concerns. A measure of thermal insulation, and a measure of watertightness. Just not gonna do any welding before the end of this year.
