Here are some temp shots taken today. Windows down, no a/c, ambient temp 80 F.
Temp probe under p side seat carpet, on transmission hump.
Probe under carpet
Reading after driving from my wife's work to the firehall, approximately 7 minutes.
After 2.5 hr cooldown, probe in the same position against the t hump:
Ambient at that time:
Probe was re-located to the p side floorboard, just lying there.
After driving back to the wife's work for an apples to apples comparison for distance:
And after moving the probe to the d side t hump, outside the carpet (like where my leg likes to typically rest on LOOOONNNGGGG trips) and driving home, approximately 6 minutes:
Overall not too impressive. I only regret I do not have temp readings BEFORE the barrier install. Also bear in mind, I left my drain plugs out after putting the carpet back in because it was 0600 and I was tired and forgot.
If someone wants to post up temp readings with OEM stuff that'd be great. I think the real changes will come when I do the hardtop (bottom some darker version of reflectix or removable liners and maybe, MAYBE paint some of the hardtop white. I've heard good things though I think it looks frockin' ridiculous.) I've since re-installed the drain plugs and after driving 45 minutes to work under the carpet was over 130 F and the interior was a pleasant 73-ish.
That's about it. I let it dry for a day and a half, then had to rush to re-install and get to work. I've since pulled some of the carpet and the bedliner isn't showing much wear, even at the seat legs. Sorry if this ain't what you're looking for, but it was the best I could do for a solution to this heat problem while keeping it bedlined. Hope all this helps someone. Any questions, complaints, moans, groans, bitches, or gripes just lemme know.
