Vinyl Floor Covering - any experience?

Anybody ever use the vinyl floor covering like this one?

https://www.stockinteriors.com/molde...p?Itemid=13185



I used to have a factory rubber floor in an Explorer Sport Trac, and I liked it when paired with some nice carpeted floor mats.

I'm skeptical that the one that I linked to is as nice as an OEM mat. Currently have carpet with insulation underneath for heat control. I'm going to do some type of new carpet or new vinyl mat (and also keep the insulation underneath for heat control).

Not interested in raptor liner-type products for my purposes, so no need to suggest them. They aren't suitable for my needs, climate and jeep configuration

I would be worried about moisture under it. With carpet and can breath a little and has a chance to dry out. With vinyl its just gonna stay and never dry. Our jeeps arent know to be nearly as water tight as an explorer

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

...does it rain in Texas?

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

FWIW I purchased an Auto Custom Carpets one from Quadratec. I have not laid it out in the Jeep yet to check its fitment but for the price I am overall impressed with how durable I believe it will be.

It seems to be against the grain to have carpet or anything in a Jeep. I bought this mat for my 94 project which will definitely be a winter driver. I want the extra insulation for heating the vehicle and the protection of keeping the road salt from my boots off the floorboards. Sure, it may end up with moisture under it but that is moisture, not road salt. Being aware of the potential moisture it is easy to periodically dry that out anyways. This will be a hardtop Jeep and careful attention paid to all firewall, cowl, floor, and windshield areas when sealing. The clean Arizona Jeep made me well aware of some dashboard windshield area leaks. I dont think a watertight Yj is easy to achieve but I think that a lot of old Heeps in general have some easily fixed water leaks. I may get a chance to lay this mat on the floor soon. If so I will post how it fits.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

I been running options thru my head. Was thinking Rino liner or a carpet thing. Not sure on pros or cons

Trying to weld has honed my grinding skills
