Jeep Wrangler TJ Carpet Kit

Effective Maintenance Tips for the Jeep Wrangler (TJ) Carpet Kit

It's a no-brainer that the carpet in your Jeep Wrangler (TJ) should be well-maintained. Compared to other parts of your truck, the carpet takes a lot of abuse; aside from being stepped on, they are also magnets to stains, food particles, dirt, mud, and other debris. And if not properly cared for, the carpets will eventually fray, fade out, and deteriorate to the point of being useless. And we no longer have to reiterate how expensive a good replacement Jeep Wrangler (TJ) carpet kit could be.

In this guide, we've listed down some helpful tips you can follow in order to maintain your Jeep Wrangler (TJ) carpets:

  • Vacuum regularly.

Don't just wait until your carpet is a total mess. Regular vacuuming not only keeps the carpet clean and free from dirt and debris but also lifts up the fibers upright, restoring its vibrant appearance.

  • Remove grease, engine oil, and petroleum-based stains with paint thinner.

Rub the thinner on the affected areas with a cotton rag, and cover it with salt. The salt should be able to absorb the grease, which you can then easily vacuum afterwards. If the carpet is colorfast, you can replace the paint thinner and salt with cornmeal and leave it overnight.

  • If the carpet has started to fade, you can restore it with ammonia.

Use a sponge to lightly apply a mixture of clear ammonia and water on the carpet. Let it soak for a couple of minutes and rinse thoroughly. Take note that this will not work with wool carpets; if you're not sure what fabric your carpet is made of, test this mixture on a discreet area of the carpet first.

  • Is the carpet starting to smell like your dog? Clear the air with borax.

Sprinkle the borax generously on the carpet and let it sit for a half an hour before vacuuming. The borax also has the additional benefit of killing fleas and other small insects.

  • If the carpet is seriously worn out, consider getting it steam-cleaned first before throwing it out.

The steam can effectively rejuvenate the fibers of the carpet as well as remove any allergens that may have accumulated in it over time.

  • Installation Tips for the Jeep Wrangler (TJ) Carpet Kit

    So you’ve finally decided to replace the old carpet in your Jeep Wrangler (TJ). Whether it’s because it’s worn out, it’s beyond repair, or you’re simply upgrading to a higher-end aftermarket model, getting the Jeep Wrangler (TJ) carpet kit set up can be quite an effort to make.

    If you plan on installing the carpet on your Jeep Wrangler (TJ), here are some tips to consider:

    Tip #1: Make sure to remove everything.

    A lot of the work involved in installing a new carpet is removing all of the stuff on top of the old carpet. In the case of the Jeep Wrangler (TJ), you will have to remove the driver and passenger seats, the center console, the seat belt anchors, the side panels, and the numerous electrical connectors, screws, and mounting hardware on the floor. The smaller components in particular also need to be labeled so that you will be able to identify and reassemble them properly later on.

    Tip #2: If the floor is dirty and/or corroded, clean that up first.

    This will make your new carpet just as dirty as the old one, so make sure to deal with that first. Vacuum any loose dirt from the floor, and remove any spots of corrosion with rust remover followed by several coats of rust-proof paint. But if the floor is severely corroded—to the point that it leaves holes on the floor – get that patched up first as well.

    Tip #3: Do not remove any tar-based lining the floor pan.

    As disgusting as it might look, this lining actually insulates the floor against heat reflected from the road as well as the sound of the engine. Leave the lining be or, if it is also badly deteriorated, have it restored in an auto repair shop.

    Tip #4: Pre-fit and measure the new carpet against the old one.

    The new carpet must be a perfect fit with the floor of your truck to prevent the carpet from slipping and avoid dirt from slipping through any gaps. Make sure to compare the dimensions of the new carpet not only against the floor pan but also with the old carpet so as to ensure that the dimensions are correct.

    Tip #5: Do not use a power drill to cut holes in the carpet.

    The drill bit will either cause nearby threads of the fabric to unravel or for the fabric to wrap around it, damaging both the carpet and your drill in the process. Instead, use a drift pin or a sharp utility knife to poke a hole on the carpet’s surface.
