Vinyl floor cover

So I think I got a nice pretty original rust free CJ7 but the carpet is well worn(and Garnet).I am sure I can find original carpet kit to go back in it but I would like to not have to worry with keeping it clean.Since the Jeep seems to be good example I hate to put bedliner on the floor.

? is: HAS ANYONE USED THE VINYL FLOOR KITS FROM QUADRATEC OR JC WHITNEY?

If so,how are they and do they glue down or will they just fit in. I was thinking this would be a good solution for now that I could easily remove or just place carpet over in the future.

Thanks,

JNLDR

I think it'll trap dirt and water beneath itself and lead to rust.

Have you thought about Herculiner (DIY) or Linex? My Jeep is "wash and wear" with the vinyl seats and Linex inside the tub.

Just a thought.

What are you going to be doing with your Jeep? Is it going to be getting wet inside quite a bit? I would tend to worry about the drop in liner trapping moisture and causing rust...especially if the liner moves around a bit and causes scratching of the paint. I have never had one so I don't know for sure, but I do know that this is one of the complaints of the drop in bed liners in pick-ups. If they don't fit well they can cause vibration noises that are irritating too.

I know you have a pretty pristine CJ from what you've described and I can understand not wanting to modify it too much (I am into restoration way more than modification myself) However, if you plan on doing stuff that will be getting the inside wet and/or muddy frequently I think you should re-think getting a spray in liner like Rhino. That is what I am doing after much consideration and research on the subject. I want to preserve my CJ best I can and I am going to so much effort to restore it. I think that that the Rhino is one mod I'm willing to make for the greater good.

Don't know if this helps at all but at least you have a post on here--right?

Rust issue

That is the particular issue I was concerned about - trapping moisture and water and doing more harm than good. I will use my jeep a liitle afield but VERY lightly. Mostly will be a cruiser. I may go with bedliner but probably go with an original carpet and put some type of heavy vinyl floor mats over when and if needed. Thanks for the replies.

Why not spray liner on the inside and put replacement carpets over top? You can retain the original look with no worry of rust occuring beneath it (provided you remove the rollbar during the liner installation) and remove the carpet when you feel like doing a little exploring ion the backroads. Best of both worlds IMO.
