Removing Interior Trim From An 08

I was considering removing a lot of the interior plastic trim from my JK but was wondering what it looks like underneath. Ideally it would look like a TJ but I doubt my luck is that good. I've seen a few posts about doing it but no real good information on what they found or pictures, pictures would be great. Thanks for any help.

i removed the rear speaker and the other plastic side. speaker was taking up need space. just metal in the back looks fine. The middle B pillar rollbar though better leave that on. I had that off for our new seat belts and seats. Put it back there is no finished edge and its sharp. i ended up putting that back and notching for the new seat belts to clear from the factory mounting point.

But i have removed a lot from this jeep all seats carpet. most the plastic. all factory seats belts and related SRS system that i could.

If you don't like the rough look after removing the interior plastic, etc., you can always use automotive bondo to smooth things out (I'd get it painted afterwards). Just an idea.

Why would you pull parts off? Thats reducing some of the road noise plus it adds fit and finish. That would be like pulling your fuel injection system to replace it with a dated Carter carb the early YJ'S and CJ's had. If you were to upgrade I could understand that more so.
