Has anyone bought the BedRug or BedTred that Quadratec is selling? Any thoughts?

Any thoughts?

Take the carpet out all together, invest in a decent shop vac and pocket the rest of the money.

One of the biggest issues with carpeting is that over time, they will wear down the paint on the floor boards, then when they get wet, they will trap the moisture underneither further promoting rust.  Solve everything by taking out the rug, when you notice paint wearing thin, roll on or lightly spray some new paint over the worn area.  the only down side to this I can think of is increased road noise and maybe heat transfer in the summer.

No way. I would def go carpet. Last weekend Bobs backseat was the most inviting rear cj7 seat ive ever been in and i owe it to the imaculate factory carpet on the floor. Its the little details that make all the difference.
