Question My foot is about to melt..... AHHHHHH!

Okay, I removed the carpet a few weeks ago, but I haven't had a chance to herculine my tub yet. I wasn't too worried, but I drove it for the first time the other day since removing the carpet and I swear the croc's I was wearing were about to friggin' melt onto my foot from the heat.

Will the herculiner help with heat? Has anyone installed a heat shield above the transmission?

I'm sure I'm missing a good post on this topic.... but the friggin' search feature doesn't work for shit

Just one more reason, in a long line of reasons, to not wear Crocs outside of the house.

I just drove 9 hours from OBX back home. The floor was HOT. My son's stuffed animal was on the floor most of the way and it felt like it came right out of the dryer.

I'm considering ripping all my carpet out since it got wet when we had the top off on vacation. Do any of the bedliner treatments insulate as well?

The carpet is an excellent source to reduce heat on the floorboards in our jeeps and a lot of people forget about this.

Then you see people with no carpet and all drainplugs pulled and then they will complain how hot it is in the jeep when driving around town or taking long trips.

I've seen people remove the carpet and actually put it back in because of floorboards get to hot. You could get a floor mat, but that will probably melt

A lot of the spray in bedliners do little or nothing about heat. I've been searching for a good insulator spray in bedliner and the best I've found is vortex.

Good luck!

Thanks for going easy on me concerning the crocks

Okay... I pretty sure the consensus is that the crocks are and should be jettisoned from the Jeep.

The Lizard Skin stuff looks promising, albeit expensive, and I have to figure if it will be a problem to spray the Herculiner over top of it.

Scottrock - What product did you use? The type of heat shield I'm familiar with has the aluminum facing out and the adhesive side on the back..... where the aluminum reflects the heat back towards the source of heat. Is this what you used.... or is it different?

I'm sorry, I really didn't want to be just another jerk only commenting to bash you for wearing crocs, but I just gotta jump on the ol' douchewagon.

Let's just assume that ANYONE wearing crocs has NOT already seen this link...

http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=fashion

So... get those ugly things off your feet and burn 'em. If you have to, call up your fairy godmother and tell her you'd like your glass slippers back now, princess. Just stop wearing crocs. Please... all of humanity is begging you.


Oh yeah, and on the herculiner...
You could always herculine your jeep floor with melted crocs...

That's the same shit I used. I don't know what it's called as a buddy of mine just gave me a stack of it a few years ago. He called it "dynamat heat shield" but it had no logo on it. It was in good size sheets, like 1'X2'. Aluminum on one side, black sticky gooey crap on the other. I slapped one piece on each side of the tranny hump and one over the craptastic OEM deadener layer in the cargo area (for the Jeep dog).

I'm pretty sure it was hit with a scotchbright to rough it up but the spray on is sticking fine. Oh, and I used the bed liner product called SprayMax. Make sure whoever sprays it lays it on thick over the edges or you will be able to see it through the liner (I really didn't care, there is good coverage and it does what it's supposed to do. keep my shit from rusting)

I found that the heat on the floor was greatly reduced after installing a transmission cooler. Can't comment on the crocs, though...

Is this with the automatic transmissions? I have a 6spd with Monstaliner and I drive the Jeep barefoot with just the Mopar slush mats up front with no problem with heat.

Assuming this is an auto trans problem for you guys, as I can touch my tunnel and it's only slightly warmer than the rest of the vehicle's floor.

I've got an auto w/Rhino lined tub and I think the lining helps a little but not much. I've taken many long trips on hot days and don't feel it's too hot. Course I don't wear crocs...
