Considering Linex interior

I have Linex in my scout and love it. Tired of wet carpet in down pours, thinking about pulling my carpets out. My concern is the stuff they put on the floorboards that looks like goop. Any one linex? What did you do with the material paint over it? if you removed it how?

It's just comes off. It goes pretty quick with a air chisel.

I peeled it all off the cargo area and passenger side using a wood chisel. It was ~90 degrees the day that I did it so I didn't need a heat gun. Sprayed over it in the driver's footwell. I find it adds a little more insulation from the heat. If rust is a concern, I'd peel it all off. I found lots of water, dirt, and debris under the spots that I peeled.

**Edit** I used raptor liner. Application was easy and it's holding up quite well.

Hello. My name is Randall. I have wet carpet too.

Any pics and likes or dislikes with raptor line, we just got a raptor vendor in town and I haven't heard anything about them yet?

I made the mistake of verbally asking my LineX guy to remove it . . never got passed down and now I'm stuck with it like that. Normally it's fine as it is under some weathertech mats but it collects dirt like a bitch.

Moral of the story. Take the time and get it off yourself. . . also, tape the line where YOU want it, I had them LineX over the lip and taped a line on the door where I liked . . . came out cleaner than the others I have seen that they masked off.

>> Oh, and tape the wires so they don't permanently spray them in

I love my line-x. Definitely remove the sound insulation crap. Ive heard you can melt it off with a torch, or chip it off with dry ice and a hammer as well.

I used 4 36 grit flap discs to take up the sound deadening. Took about 6 hours of prep, I got real anal cleaning up everything. I used rustoleum 2 part truck bed liner from tractor supply. $99 and was enough for 3 heavy coats on my jku. Really like the outcome

quick tip....score the sound deadening crap with a utility knife real good.....leave drain plugs in and fill tub with water enough to cover the "crap"....let soak for a couple of hours then use a wood chisel and scraper and it comes off real easy.

Get a harbor freight oscillating tool for $30 and use the scraper attachment. For stubborn areas use a plumbers torch to heat the goop, then scrape. Touch up any bare metal with a self etching primer prior to the bed liner. I used the U-pol Raptor spray bed liner on my Jeeps and love it.

This is all great info! I have an appointment at the Linex dealer near me in 3 weeks. He wants me there with him helping which I am pumped about. He said that way if he has any questions I'll be right there and it will be done exactly the way I want. I was wondering about the sound material as well. Good to know you can remove it entirely.

Be prepared for a lot more heat at your feet. My tub is rhino lined and I have a lot of heat at my feet, to the point where it can be uncomfortable in the summer.

I like the "lined" tub over carpet but the heat got to me. Just covered it up with BedTred, the heat is now gone

I used paint stripper to get the goop up. I used the Raptor liner and like it. The prep is the only pain. The Linex jobs I have seen look great, but I prefer the softer texture I got using Raptor @40 PSI.

The line-x guy removed mine as part of the process. It's not just sound deadening, it's also for heat.

As far as heat, I still use slush mats and that helps but it is definitely warmer in the tub. To keep the slush mats from moving, I removed the retainers for them from the carpeting, cut the thread off the bottoms with a hack saw, and epoxied them directly to the line-x. So you may want to pull them off your carpet before you throw it out.

I left it on there. The back is covered by the security deck and it doesn't look out of place when covered in the front footwells.

I just did a trip from Atlanta to Daytona and back last weekend. No issues with excessive heat.

I do want to find a way to put some mats in the floorboards though. I bought WeatherTech liners when I first got the JKR and there is a 1/4" gap all the way around. Thinking of using some type of rubber strips to take up the slack.
