An automotive floor pan is usually a single piece of stamped sheet metal that runs the length from the trunk of the vehicle to its firewall. It is considered the best return path of the chassis of the vehicle. As all automotive enthusiasts may probably know, a component that is made with metal materials is more susceptible to corrosion. And deterioration will easily plague the component especially when this is exposed to humid or wet environment. Therefore, as a vehicle floor pan is made of sheet metal, this is a primary subject for deterioration when it happens to come in contact with other foreign elements. Deterioration may even be quicker especially when these foreign elements have lingered longer on the floor pan probably because of neglect.
This explains why an automotive carpet comes standard to all vehicles that came from the automotive factories. Through the carpet, the floor pan is saved from the abuses of liquids, food particles, and other dirt particles. This is lined through the length of the interior to obscure the entire floor pan. Because an automotive carpet is decked just on top of the floor pan, it will catch these foreign objects and stop these from going directly unto the floor pan. Thus, sparing the floor pan from the threats of wreckage.
Automotive carpeting will not just provide protection to the floor pan. It will also serve as the instrument that makes the theme of the interior concept complete. As we all know, the sheet metal floor pan is somewhat more of a dull, plain and insipid-looking component. Thus, through the carpeting the ugly sight is masked with its luxurious-looking carpets. Normally, the carpet that is factory-installed blends or complements with the overall motif of the vehicle interior. Other automakers tend to be more unique and their vehicles are seen with carpet that is in direct contrast to the colors of the rest of the features of the vehicle's interior. This creates more meaning to the aesthetic concept of the vehicle.
A carpet is not guaranteed to serve the vehicle for the longest time. From the everyday use of the vehicle with passengers and loads constantly aboard, it is subject to wear and tear dilemma. But this is not to worry as replacement is available in the market. For Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles, Jeep Grand Cherokee carpets are provided to maintain the gorgeous look of their vehicles.
