    Cherokee floors

    Thought I'd share a couple pics of my afternoon job: Patch up a '93 Cherokee's floors so that it passes safety!. Unfortunately, I lost the first couple pics showing how bad the floors were to start with, but sufficed to say Fred Flintstone would have been proud.

    Let me dig up the ones of my 88 cherokee floors. I did the rear floor from the tailgate to the back of the front seats (pinch seam), from side to side & new wheel wells, I will refuse to ever do that again! I'd rather pay someone to do it.
    Good look at the front floors in your pics however, I'm scared to lift the carpet in that section due to the rear sections aggravations.

    I feel your pain, Noltz & Silver XJ. I had to patch the floors in my 1991 XJ, and it was a wicked job! Every time I looked hard enough, I found another section that needed to be gutted.

    Good job, looks clean & solid!

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    I'm a proud member of SOXJA ask me why!

    That looks like a good job & if you were able to seal it up from the bottom as well as you did on the top, you should have a strong floor for a long time.

    haha awesome job Noltz. What'd you use to seal it all?
    I heard of using rubberized rocker guard for floor patches.

    The actual sealant is wonderful stuff from Wurth called "Quick Seal", and is basically a quick-setting RTV silicone. We then covered the entire floor with rocker guard, top and bottom.
