I went with Line-x. I absolutely love it. I mountaineer/climb/backpack and have a black lab. Clean up is a breeze - hose it off and good to go. Note I keep the MOPAR mats installed on entire floor.

I honestly feel the Line-X has aided in insulating and noise reduction. I have 35 inch M/Ts and I barely hear them on highway.

I have traveled hundreds of miles with Bimini top only, got caught in rain and have had no issues with drying/smell/water retention etc..

10/10 will Line-X every Jeep myself ot family own here in out. Between the savings on time, my time/energy, and carpet upkeep, $1200 has been worth every dollar.
Do you have any issues with heat and/or fumes with your liner? Also, what did you do in the cargo area with the storage compartment lid?

I currently removed all carpet except for the rear wheel wells and cargo area. I like the floor mats over the bare floors - but the cargo area and wheel wells are throwing me for a loop so I am thinking of lining everything. I am hesitating a bit because I have been told by other folks (who haven't installed liner) that I should not install because of the fumes that come up when it gets hot. I am assuming this issue wouldn't pop up so much when I have my bikini top on in summer - but more in the winter when I put my hard top on.

Hey, (updated)

I have had no experience with any type of noxious fumes resulting from the installation of Line-X. In summer, I normally run bikini or sun shades; in winter I have not noticed it. I am not sure I fully understand, the issue others described is that when the Line-X gets hot, it releases fumes? Not sure I buy that, what about when it is cooking on the bed of trucks all day? The rear floor vents (the ones that went under carpet) have been taken out, so if the issue means that more heat will be in the front 2 seats, yes that may be the case. If you are that unsettled, maybe try and contact a Line-X rep? From my standpoint, the product was designed to take extremes, my room temp heat/defrost/etc. are nowhere near the design thresholds for the product. My heat does not go north of 100 degrees even in alpine.

Mentioned above -
Left cargo lid covered. Have MOPAR Mats over it. It stays in place that way. I will post photos. The reason I did this is because I did not want to install a piano hinge.

Hope that helps you our a bit.

Thank you for the reply - it does help. The fumes I’ve been warned about are not so much not obnoxious fumes from the motor, but ones that emit from the bedliner chemical makeup and, over time, could be harmful. This wouldn’t be a problem in a truck bed, or even in a Jeep with the top off, but I could believe some of it in a Jeep with hardtop on (which I do from Thanksgiving to March). Looking at Line-X, their VOC is zero which, I believe, means fumes are a nonissue so I will contact a rep as suggested.

Question: how did you handle the wiring on the rear wheel wells with the bedliner? The wiring is wrapped, but looks like it can be easily snagged/damaged. (Pictures of your install here would be appreciated).

I did just buy a cubby/storage cover from Tuffy Products that I installed today. Jury is still out on if I keep it or not. In my current “all carpets out” option, it is not my favorite because of the lip it makes. If I spray liner in, I think it will do solid (which is why I am sharing here - see pictures).

Love the tub cover; will be looking into it. Good to now about VOC zero. One thing I failed to mention was for about a week after install there was some minor annoyance with smell; think like walking into freshly painted room. No lightheadedness or any other symptoms. I installed on summer and, as previously mentioned, rarely have hardtop on.

I am still not sure how to link threads, but the install pics are in an above post. The wires were wrapped and left above Line-x in front 2 seats. In fact, the installer left a strip under the front and passenger seats un-Line-xed where the wrapped wires sit. I scoured the internet for other solutions, but did not find any. NOTE: I saw a JK install thread that removed the center console and thus had enough slack to 'lift' wires high enough to allow full coverage under seats. I do believe the install used Raptor or Lizard skin (?), not Line-X. The process was *involved* and required removal of 4x4 shifter and automatic shifter.
