Glad to hear those seats went in without too much hassle and that you can lay down in the back Tim!

It is odd to see everything under the jeep cleaner than the jeep itself.

Very good point Kris. That part always sucks.

Still moving forward on my expedition build of my FSJ. Interior is mostly done now, still have to repair and reinstall the A/C parts under the dash.

 

I took the rear seat, belts and brackets out for good. The PO had laid some cheap carpet over the rubber subfloor. It looked like this w/o the carpet.

Removing the rubber showed the floor to be in excellent shape with no rust at all.

I installed a layer of sound deading, followed by the rubber and topped it with some outdoor carpet from Lowes. I also extended the floor about 12 inches forward to increase the usable storage/sleeping area.

In the front, I removed the seats and then the carpet and factory sound deadner. I was happy to see no rust through here, although I did have some rust starting because the factory cowl drains were clogged. (common on the FSJ's)

Old Carpet

You can see the rust on the floor right below where the factory floor vent/ drain is located.

I installed some new soundproofing on the floor followed by new carpet from BJ's, a FSJ vendor. I then put "new" seats from a Ford Explorer in with new seat covers and a center console from a Chevy Suburban.

Finally, I trimmed it out with new floor mats and a steering wheel cover.
