The only fitting floor cover was the one pice rubber front mat. So If You have an email adress were I can find a carpet set for my car, please let me know. Thanks

Re: Carpet

Off hand, the only two companies that I know of that sell carpet sets for your year/model of Jeep are Four Wheel Drive Hardware http://www.4wd.com/ and JC-Whitney http://www.jcwhitney.com.

The two sets from 4WD Hardware only come in the color black and are part# M3861BK that sells for $189.95 and part#4972BK that sells for $129.95.

For JC-Whitney, the part# is 18ZE5825N and retails for $99.95.

Sorry, can't comment on the quality of either of these carpet kits, but maybe it will give you someplace to start your shopping at and help you find what you are looking for.

Re: Carpet

Instead of carpet you might want to think about one of the coatings like Herculiner, its indestructible. I'm going to be pulling the carpet out of my CJ-7 and going that route, quite a number of guys on this bbs have done the same. Just a suggestion.

Re: Carpet

Do they offer the Herculiner also in dark beige or tan?

Re: Carpet

No, Herculiner is only offered in a grey, red, or black color. However, Durabak (which is rumored to be the same product as Herculiner) can be purchased in a tan color. To find out more on Durabak, check out COTE-L Industries http://www.cotelind.com/

Seeing as I personally have only used Herculiner before, I cannot really comment on the specifics of Durabak. As I eluded to earlier, I have heard rumors from others that these two products are actually the same thing, but do not know for sure. In my case, Herculiner worked very well for coating my Jeep tub, but if you are looking for a specific color, Durabak may be your best option. Both products can be purchased for around $100 per gallon.

Re: Carpet

Durabak has larger "granules" suspended in the polyurethane. These granules are actually shredded up tires, and provide an incredible non-slip surface. If the surface will be left exposed to the sun frequently or for long amounts of time you will need to coat it with a clear-coat of something (Marine Resin comes to mind...) to prevent it from degrading.
