What to use for plugs?

I recently just mig welded new front floor pans in my CJ. With snow coming, what would you guys recommend I use for floor plugs? Got to be able to drain out the melted snow. I do plan on spraying a bed liner on the floor. Thanks

Go to your local friendly hardware store and buy a few rubber stoppers... cheap and easy!

Why are you plugging the holes? Are you not running floor mats?

For a CJ I agree with INTODEEP on the mats.
However if you want plugs, get some 3/4" hydraulic hose plugs.
They worked for me with and without Rhinoliner.

Local Lowes here had some plugs in hardware that were very similiar to the factory ones.

LOL, that was pretty funny.

Just thought I'd add that I'm in the "just throw rubber mats" crowd.
