Herculiner Interior

Has anyone actually done this in a newer ranger? I want to but there is this rubber sound stuff all over the floor, I have not decided if it needs to come out or what? Maybe I can just put it right over the top? Or should I just leave it bare metal?

Any tips or ideas?

I did it in mine i pulled out all the sound deading chit when i did it. But then i just ended up getting the stock vinal/rubber flooring from a stocker at a junk yard. You probably have wires running along the drivers side floor board by the door lip to right? I put sheet metal over that stuff to cover it up.

I was just going to put that all in a wire loom to cover it up. So you pulled all yours off? Eh, that just doesnt sound like fun at all.

If it were me, I'd just roll it over the sound deadening stuff and then put a vinyl floor in over top of it.

are you talking about the stuff that is glued to the metal that more than lilkly got painted over? I have taken some of that stuff off and its a pain in the *** but it was already peeling up so i didnt want to put herculiner over it when i do it which will hopefully be some time soon but i have a lot of other stuff to fix first.

Zach, I didn't do it to the Ranger, but I did it to my Bronco. It worked out well, but it did rub off on the sound deadened parts that see the most use.

My advice would be to cut up your vinyl flooring for your new setup and see how that works for you. It would be a better option if you are not going to be wheeling through alot of water (where you'd have to pull the flooring up and dry it out). The vinyl flooring works better for sound deadening and insulation against the hot transmission/cold environment than the Herculiner.

I am not sure how i could cut that vinyl up and still make it look good. For now I may just leave it bare metal.

With all that work you've done on your truck, I'm sure you could find a way. If you can't figure out a way, then I'd do the Herculiner... I would want something on the floor to protect it.

bedliner only looks good on this inside of jeep like vehicles. I don't think it's a mod worth doing. I personally would rather want to double the sound deadener to make it a little bit quieter.

for $300 i had the bedliner in my cab professionally done, I unclamped the wiring that runs along side of the drivers rear towards the back, I also had the rear panel done in the back seats under the rangers window too, whren it was done, it really looked great, than i covered the floor board/sides,door panels/roof with fatmat, than i put my carpet back over it, man im serious i cant hear any noise whatsover and my bluetooth is cristal clear.

p.s Oh yea with a heat gun, i took a large painters spatula and pulled the oem sound deadner up, it was easy with a strong heat gun.
