    Well the really smart thing that Jeep should do would be to offer an option to have rubber floors instead of carpeted floors, should cost less, not more Jeep(if you are reading this) since they don’t have to carpet the truck. After all many here will go mud slinging with their trucks and many will pull motor boats or sail boats with their trucks. And they will all have to get out of their trucks and go into the water to connect or disconnect their boat from their trailer and then get back into their trucks with their water filled shoes to pull out from the ramp. And all of that water in their shoes would make the carpet all wet and then stinky. So why not just do what Toyota did with the F J Cruiser and make it with a rubber floor? I love that about my FJ. I just wipe it clean. And yes I know that many will go rock crawling. But hey they should try boating or mud slinging too. It’s fun!!!

    I would not say we are "saving the paint", but more like avoiding the rust. If you ding, scrape, or scratch away the paint (which will happen) then it will expose the steel and within months...rust. A Line-X - like product would help with dings & dents as well as keeping the metal from being exposed.

    Impressive. Think I will investigate this further, maybe get it done locally instead of factory

    for a few years, I worked at a line-x installer.. I can vouch for the normally excellent quality.

    I'll do it to protect the box, make it easier to clean, make it consistently look the same, not have to worry about setting things down nicely, instead I can just throw crap back there. I don't like plastic bedliners, personal preference.

    i agree its kinda silly to buy $300 rubber mats for inside the car to protect the carpet you'll never see again, but dang is it convenient to power wash the mats. No way I can just pull the carpet out quick and hose off 4 month old yogurt., lol

    In the era of Quieter is Nicer, these Carpetings should come standard with the BACKING-Side made of Sound-Deadening Material . . . if they don't already ?

    Isn't the factory spray in bed liner only $495? Curious, why would you go this route.?

    Watch the Line X video on here. It’s only 10% more roughly and it has a lifetime warranty vs. the three year warranty from Mopar. It’s also twice as thick.
    I was going to do the factory stray in liner as well until I watched the video.

    Ok makes sense. Guess I would have done the same if I hadn't gotten the LE.

    I don't think I could do this to my new Jeep. The sight of them sanding the bed of my new Jeep would make me cringe LOL. I think adding this liner might cause more problems with rust not that I have any evidence but I feel like that is a good possibility, when you sand and spray and if someone doesn't do a good job and a little bit in a corner is not stuck well...
    Anyways, GL to the folks who do this but this one is def not for me, more so because I am not going to be using this truck as a work truck :)

    Sounds like its basically the same cost as the factory option, so the color matching/accenting is a nice feature, especially with the simpler colors. If they are already prepping the truck, spraying the rockers will be cheaper than by itself, too.
