question before monstaliner....
 
Ok so I ordered monstaliner kit for my JK. Removed the carpet and saw that the underneath wast like a normal bed. Whats with the layers in the spot underneath where the rear seats would go and under the front mats. Was wondering if anyone has ran into this? is it safe to just roll over or should that be removed along with whatever is layered on over where the welds would be. Any help?
:dunno:

If it is metal and you have prepped it correctly, you should be fine.

Well I'm not exactly sure its metal. Seems more like a hard silicon lining the seals.

pics.....

The ones in the middle and upfront seem like they are welds. The ones around where the rear seats would go and the one line close to the tailgate seems different...

The clean looking mounds are formed sheet metal for strength. The other mounds look to be silicone installed from the factory for some reason. My LJ had the same thing, but not near as much, and I just prepped them really well and have had no issues. Here is a pic. The Monsta in mine is holding up great and I haven't had my top on for two months.

That material is there for sound deadening . You could grind it off or smooth it out and may not need it with the liner . The liner may perform the same function or may not . That material is to deaden any harmonics and droning on the sheet metal .:cheers::wave:

Thats what I figured just wasnt for sure. I'll be doing the liner soon so ... I'll have to figure if its worth removing for looks. :thankyou:

its heat distribution material from the factory, its like concrete and it tuff as hell to get off you better have lots of hours to get it off, i bedlined over mine after wire brushing it to scuff it

Thanks I will probably do the same just wire brush it and bedliner over it.

Ok I wire brushed the material all out.. no new noises. Will look better when I eventually liner it. Also I started to work on the trunk hatch I want to create. I removed the stock spots where the rear panel went into. Had to weld a few small pc of sheet metal over it to cover the holes from drilling out the old brackets. They are just tac welded on for now. Will work on welding and smoothing them out this weekend.

its actually sound deadener material and it only took me 45-60 minutes to get it off with a hammer and chisel, it comes off in pretty big chunks
