Hello, I recently bought a 2010 Wrangler Island Addition. The floor of the front seats is completely bare. There is no carpet and the bright blue metal floor is the only thing showing. I was wondering if this was normal for a wrangler? I was concerned with what will happens when it gets wet (I live in Michigan and plenty of snow will be tracked into the car, i'm sure). Should I be concerned about the bare floor? Thank you!
Do you

I ANSWER MOST OF THE CJ 5s AND 7s THAT I CAN HERE (TOTAL, OVER 7000 ANSWERS IN THE WHOLE SITE)......I'VE HAD NOTHING BUT CJs SINCE I STARTED DRIVING ON THE ASPHALT IN '81

PRESENTLY HAVE #s 6 AND 7.....A '77 CJ 5 AND A '46 WILLYS......GOT BOTH IN '91

CARPET IS NOT A CJs FRIEND AT ALL THE FLOORS WILL RUST OUT FAST, EVEN DOWN HERE IN S.C. WITHOUT THE SALT.....RUBBER MATS WITH THE LITTLE "T.ITs" THAT HOLD THEM UP SO THAT THEY CAN BREATH UNDERNEATH ARE BETTER, BUT THEY WILL PROMOTE RUST OVER TIME TOO

WANNA KEEP YOUR PAL?

DOUBLE, EVEN TRIPLE UNDERCOAT EVERY SQUARE INCH UNDERNEATH AND INSIDE THE FENDER WELLS....PROFESSIONALLY OR WITH SPRAY CANS (MAYBE YOU CAN GAIN ACCESS TO A GARAGE LIFT AFTER HOURS.........TO HECK WITH VOIDING A WARRANTY, AS, IF IT DOES RUST UP, NOT DOING IT (AND IT WILL) THE METAL DAMAGE IS DONE....AIN'T NO MAKING IT NEW AGAIN!.....JUST PATCHING IS THE CURE

AS FAR AS THE INSIDE, "RHINO LINER" MIGHT SAVE THE FLOORS....THIS CAN BE DONE PROFESSIONALLY, DIY WITH SPRAY CANS, SOME CAN BE ROLLED ON.....CHECK THE AUTO PARTS STORES

I CHOSE THE SPRAY CANS FROM THE AUTO PARTS STORE........FLAT BLACK!!!.......BLACK IS "UNIVERSAL".....BLACK CAN EZily BE "MATCHED"........MY ENTIRE INTERIOR AND DASH IS DONE THAT WAY IN "MR. JEEP", MY '77 CJ 5.......GET A SCRATCH....A SCUFF....SPILL SOMETHING THAT WON'T COME OFF???? BREAK OUT A CAN OF FLAT BLACK!

AFTER PAINTING SEVERAL OF MINE AND OTHERS (THE WHOLE JEEP) THE EXTERIOR LASTS A LONG TIME, THE INTERIOR TAKES A BEATING.....YOU SELDOM HAVE KEPT THAT COLOR TO DO SOME TOUCHING UP.......I LIKE THE FLAT BLACK INTERIOR!

WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE TO DO......KEEP THE FLOORBOARDS PAINTED WELL AND OFTEN.....ONCE THE RUST STARTS, IT'S HARD TO STAY AHEAD OF IT

I DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH OF A PROBLEM WITH "WILLY", MY '46........THE GRILL/ WINDSHIELD FRAME/ SEAT FRAMES/ RIMS/ FRAME/ DRIVETRAIN ARE HIS ONLY STEEL PARTS. I FOUND THAT IN '91 WHILE RESTORING HIM W/ NO INTERNET, A COMPLETE FIBERGLASS BODY WAS MUCH CHEAPER THAN STEEL BODY (GLASS WAS ONLY $950)....LIGHTER AND QUIETER TOO!.......AFTER 20 SOME-ODD YEARS I HAVE FOUND NO RUST ON HIS BODY!

THIS MAY INTEREST YOU ALSO....JUST 'CAUSE IT'S SO EZ TO INSTALL

I would not be overly concerned apart for the fact that it will be rather cold under foot, I would put floor mats down that can be easily removed and cleaned, but that is just a matter of personal comfort that you want.
