If you own a Jeep Wrangler, there’s one thing it’s not likely to stay for long: clean. Off-roading or even just daily driving can quickly take a toll on your interior. The good news: thanks to Jeep’s plug-and-play design mentality, it’s surprisingly easy to remove your carpeting and throw down a substantially more rugged replacement. For our money, that means BedTred.
If that name sounds familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen it on Motorz before. We dropped in BedTred truck liner for an F-150 project truck. For our Wrangler, the focus has switched to the carpets. Made specifically for 1997-2006 Jeep Wranglers, both BedRug and BedTred (the latter being slightly higher-end) match factory looks with significantly more durability. Much like Jeep’s philosophy, BedTred liners are designed to be easily installed, maintained and removed when necessary. Should your BedTred need a deep cleaning, simply take out, clean away and pop back into place.
Perhaps the best news of all is that installation/preparation is simple, requires only basic know-how and doesn’t damage any interior components. Once you’ve removed the factory carpeting, clean the floor pan areas throughly. If your kit includes hook fasteners, you’ll need to use rubbing alcohol in areas where they will be installed. Otherwise, all that’s required for installation (tool-wise) are scissors, soap, a flathead screw driver, water and some rags. That’s it. As far as substantial interior upgrades go, this is about as straightforward as they come.
Once in your Wrangler, your BedTred will resist mildew, mold, stains and whatever abuse might come its way. To learn more, check out BedTred’s official website. Plus, take a look at the Motorz episode below to see step-by-step installation and everything else you need to know!
