Hey Kail, will you guys be running any labor day sales? Also do you have any pictures of the desert khaki installed? The model image doesn't give a good indication of what it will look like in person.

Cheers!
Yes, same as the forum discount of 10%

Here's what mine looks like in my JT. The color looks a little different than what's in their pic.

The color is an elusive one, every camera and lightening environment seems to interpret it differently.
I just grabbed a bunch of scrap pieces from our waterjet machine so if someone wants a sample message me an address.
There are so many variations of tan and brown in wranglers and gladiators that our color specialist picked one that was middle of the road that was more of a compliment to the interior than trying to match them all.

I am in the Lansing area, if you need help putting it in, I can give you a hand. I have installed the Armorlite system and can probably do in in about an hour. It is a fantastic system and I love it.
How easy to install? Keep in mind I have consistent capacity to break a lightbulb when replacing burned out one.

It is super easy to install. There are great install videos available to watch. I lined the tub with sound reading material first and that required the seats to be removed and a bunch of extra work. I think I could install the Armorlite stuff in under and hour if that was the only thing I was doing.

Thank you on the install feedback. One thing about traditional floor mats is they’re easy to clean. Just take ‘em out, spray them, dry off and put back. What makes these easier than floor mats? I get that I spray down the inside of the Jeep and it drains but is it really easier? I’m close to buying these so I’m not saying these are inferior at all. Just wanna be practical.

Sure you can take out the floor mats to clean them, the carpet is still full of dirt even after spending a 20 minutes vacuuming.

I totally understand. Each scenario has a pro/con list.
Traditional mat is a blow molded vinyl which is soft and wears our very quickly. They are good for taking out and giving a pat to get dry debris out, to clean them further they require a spray down, a vacuum or a wipe. Then you have the carpet under it for the full clean. Also I tend to lose some of the debris onto the carpet when removing mats. I have them in my truck.

With our floor replacement system it is a a press molded composite like a TPO. A lot more durable, like life of the vehicle durable. You lose the ease of the quick dusting of a mat and trade it for the ability to easily clean more gnarly messes.
I will note that if you have quick access to a vacuum that it is sometimes an easier clean up for things like dry sand to give it the quick suck. Then I use a detail spray or Adams rubber floor cleaner or even just a mist of water and a rag to get that last dusting off. Anything beyond that I do a light rinse out.

Hope that helps. Our product is obviously not end all perfect. For every improvement we had to weigh the alternative when making our decisions.

Hi Kail are these glued or stuck down? What keeps dirty water from getting between the floor system and the tub?

thanks!

Great feedback and the vac-spray combo makes sense.

Tipped me over the edge. Just ordered. Thx to @Armorlite Kail and @wibornz for your support. Now for the wait and install. I’m Nervous about getting all the trim back in place not because it’s hard but because I can screw up even easy tasks.

They are much more rigid than stock so flopping around or moving is not an issue, the trim and the console cover most of the edges. Under your door sill trim there is about a 1.2" lip that helps retain dirt and water from passing around it. The drain plug goes through our floor and snaps into the floor sheet metal which gives it a direct path outside.
If you end up getting moisture under it we used a polyester insulation that won't mold or mildew. But as I mentioned in my last post there are pro's and con's. If you submerge your Jeep in swamp water, you might want to rinse the back side clean.

The trick is understanding how the trim attaches. On JL and JT it attaches on a horizontal plane not up and down. Reinstalling the trim put pressure down on it to push it into the floor compressing the insulation then pull it towards you engaging the clips. Don't force it because that bends the clips and makes them grab less. Just take your time and be mindful of how they all go together, and you will do great!
