so today after almost losing my finger while workin on the cherokee i started pokin around at stuff i havent looked at yet.. i peeled up the carpet to feel some MAD moisture on the passenger side under the carpet on the matting stuff..

and on the driver side same thing but i found a hole all the way to the ground[16] [j]

So im thinkin of ripping out the carpet and bed lining it so i dont hafta worry about moisture and rot..

but what can i do to put over the hole before i bed line it?:(

Thank u guys
-James

If you really want to do it right, just weld in all new floor pans will save you the hassle in the future. Whats the point of doing half ass work if you want to keep the truck not just beat on it.

how big of a hole ? if it is small just patch the hole if the area around the hole is rusty cut it out and then patch it iether by welding some sheet metal in or rivit it in with sylicon and then under coat the area from underneath the hole (welded or rivited) and paint or bed line the inside floor

riveting overtop is just a band aid though, eventually it would have to be cut to clean metal then patch or it will just keep rusting

Walt the only way you know how to stop getting moisture in your jeep is parking it.
I've seen what you do in lakes and creeks

Weld in a patch peice then coat both sides with an undercoating or rhino line it lett he carpets dry in the sun for a few days(bring them in at nite so they dont get covered in dew.) or leave carpet out it will be a bit more cab noise .Try to addin a drain plug in case you sink it in a sippy hole or lake.i used two of those expanding rubber plugs that tighten with a wrench.Worked like hot damn,as I sunk my jeep a few times.

Just so that you are aware.... if you get a VI and the inspector sees a repair that is not welded, it will FAIL. To pass a VI it must be a weld in repair. Just went through this with a customer that I told it must be a weld in repair but nooooo.... he goes and screws in a piece of metal and then undercoats both inside and out hoping that I wouldnt notice[wako] Well... you know what he got F[15] [15] [15] [15] [15] make your descision wisely :D
