Carpet

Doing some work on my new to me 2016 JKU WW. Replaced the header seal because of a leak. I started to pull the carpet out on the drivers side to dry it out and I noticed the plastic retaining nut laying under the seat. I can’t see the stud where the nut came from. The two studs near the firewall are there. So where is the stud under the seat to hold the carpet? I didn’t see a stud under the passenger seat either.

Does anyone other than Jeep sell factory correct carpets with the attachments for the floor mats? I looked at the bed tread and the reviews are all over the place. Some say they are great others say the fit is terrible. Seen some pics that look good and others that look pretty bad.

2016 JK carpet

Hi Jim,
I have a '15 JKU, so I think our vehicles are similar. I have a locking drawer mounted under my driver's seat, so I couldn't thoroughly fold the carpeting to give a definitive answer. However, feeling beneath the drawer, I did find beneath the seat, a threaded stud with a plastic nut retaining the front carpet near the outboard rear corner of the center carpet tab. It is where the rear carpet slightly overlaps the front. IIRC, the rear carpet has a circular hole where the stud would otherwise poke through.

I have no knowledge of aftermarket replacement carpets or mats. Many people have totally removed their carpets and sprayed bed liner in their place. Perhaps that is an option for you.

Or, perhaps those removed & unused carpets are available - I'd watch the used Jeep parts section, or put a posting in the "wanted" section. Good luck, Jim

P.S. - Welcome to JKO!

If I had my druthers, I'd yank the carpet and sprayline everything that it covered.
No more headliner leak issues!

I have BedTred in my '14 2dr. Yeah, the fit isn't OEM but it's not like the product is meant for luxury levels of quality. I can treat the BedTred with disdain and not be concerned.

There's a thick, rubbery (1/4"-1/2") spray-on liner available I've been trying to research but I can't remember the name. It's supposed to be durable enough for the job but it's not gonna take the abuse that a hard spray-on liner will. I figure the density of the liner would add insulating for both temp and noise, not to mention being soft on your cargo. If I can find that, or something like it, I'm done with removable liners.

are you trying or thinking about DuraBak ?

I suggest contacting them ' they'll send you a sample and card covered in their product with whatever color / texture you're interested in. I'm gonna line my tub w this when time comes.

It expands and has flex as you mentioned, @funfred

Kinda sounds like it, but I couldn't find a thickness spec to confirm. The stuff I found before I became senile was, seriously, like a rubber mat that got sprayed on.
Still looking, but that DuraBak made the list. Thank you.

I'll remind that I wasn't full onboard w/ them until
I requested their sample & they sent it free. Once you
feel the stuff, you will decide it's the liner you'll want.

I think I know the urathane liner you're talking about but
cannot recall name at-all. Lol. Gettin old....

My wife's Jeep has no carpet... silky smooth. Alternatively, I still have my rug.. heavily textured/ high traffic.

I would have envisioned something more shag/fur like due to the Jeeps Mr. Nibbles relationship....

I came across a Jeep/outdoor-related Web page last weekend which happened to have a write-up about interior treatment options. I approached its author, [B]Dawn Gallegos of Chicks on the Rocks.com[B], and she very kindly had no problem with my posting the link to her information. BTW, she said that Line-X was applied several years ago, and she still swears by it.

https://www.chicksontherocks.com/sin...edliner-Option

Incidentally, her article has some sub-links about various application options highlighted throughout. Dawn did note that heat, cold, and noise are side effects.

Thanks, Dawn!

You guys were on such a roll...

...sorry to have been a buzz-kill by posting on-topic

Please resume - I was enjoying the humor.
