Stripped down the front end for paint. All the seals are out of the doors and windows, doors all stripped. Have to strip the bed of its parts then start sanding.

I decided i'm gonna rock the bare floors look like a lot of the jeep crowd does. My stock carpets are long gone and someone replaced the entire carpet with poorly cut, super cheap and thin carpet with no insulation. I've always hated it and it's gotten so ratty I figure I'll just cut it all out and paint the floor pans with rust paint. I have almost a full gallon just lying around anyway

So I got the fronts done today just letting it dry and one day soon I'll take out the seats and do the back half. I usually keep big winter floor mats in the truck all year round anyway to keep the mud under control so I won't notice much difference anyway

Spray it with tinted raptor liner. Best solution-

I would love to, or the roll on bedliner; however, funds are REALLY tight for me right now trying to pay off the new car.
My 04 frontier hasn't sold yet nor have my old winter tires, so all my money is tied up for a while.
This rust paint is the best money can buy though it's similar to POR15 rust paint

Actually roll on, depending on prep, may be better for grip. I used in on a 99 frontier. It smelled really funky, maybe like a tuna and peanut butter sandwich that was 2 weeks old out in a plastic container in the sun.

I do remember how GD rough the surface area was. It did eventually start wearing off on its own, but where I didn't sand enough.

Herculiner has these very abrasive sharp rubber pieces in it.

My truck has some sort of industrial vinyl/plastic/rubber type stuff in place of the carpets. One of the previous owners put it in there. It's about a quarter inch thick. I love having that stuff in there. When I get the floors all nasty and muddy I just take it out and hose it off. I dunno what it cost or where the guy got it, but that's something you might think about when your currency situation improves.

Yeah I've done the roll on stuff with a friend before it's held up really well in his jeep and went on very thick, definitely grippy like you say.

I figure at some point I'll be cutting the floors out and doing them with 1/8" sheet steel, when I do i'll just put rubber plugs in the floor so I can hose the floor out after a good days wheelin'
