Floor Plugs??

What is the easiest way to take out my floor plugs?
Inside the jeep or under?

How many are there?

Thanks

they are inside under the carpet, sometimes a small screw driver will help start em.

there are several locations - under the driver/pass feet, behind the driver seat, a few in the 'cargo' area. I added one behind the passenger seat since there isn't one and used the plugs from the rear which I removed when installing my trunk. behind the passenger seat is where I was finding a lot of water collecting but it had no where to go...nothing a 1/2 drill bit can't fix!

I've been wondering for a long time why DC used those "sort of permanent" plugs in the spots of the floor that appears to be the obvious and best place for a drain hole, especially the ones in the rear passenger foot area. These are the oval plugs that are not rubber--they're sealed and painted, but they can be removed by bending the tabs and tapping them out from under the Jeep. There's one of these for each passenger foot area, along with the two round ones up front for driver/passenger.

I've been meaning to find a larger oval plug that will fit these locations. Has anyone else done this? Then I could actually just hose out my Jeep as I've always wanted to do.

I remeber reading that you can use a master cylinder gasket in the oval holes, I was in auto parts store a while back and seen in the "Help" display some Chrysler Master Cylinder Gaskets and they looked the right size and shape to me, might give that a look.

Edit: try this link Floor Plug Tips

I wonder if they are the same size as the hole in the firewall that the wiring harness comes through the rubber gasket? (driver side below the master cylinder... that gasket can't be to much...
