Rear Loadspace mat 90 / 110

Hi guys,

I did this to the 110 months ago, told my friend and he did the same to his 90. I went to tractor supply and got a section of 3/8" rubber mat, had to trim from 48" wide to 36" wide, and i think it was 77" long, fit perfect. It cost me $45 i think, and looks standard. My dad swears it's quieter, I'm sure he is right, I cant really tell. They have varying thickness you can get as well.

Just an FYI for a good quality mat, keeps the loadspace from getting beat up. havent noticed any moisture underneath either, even in the soft top.

That looks great John.

Too bad the closest Tractor Supply is 30 miles away. But with lacrosse season starting I might be near one in the next few months.

Yep, looks really good.

Did the same thing in the loadspace and second row of the 110, only I used the 3/4" rubber from TSC that comes in a 4' x 6' sheet (SKU# 221900399). Make sure you get some fresh razor blades!

Did this yesterday and it was the biggest noise killer to date. Cutting this shit sucks though. Total pain in the ass.

Thanks to "LostChord" I did all flooring surfaces, top of seat box and wheel arches - Huge diff in noise. wish I could fix it to the roof. Oh, much easier to cut with a circular and saber saw.

Wonder if there is a material that could be used under the mat to help control the moisture. Under the front mats of my 90 near the bulkhead I spray WD40. Seems to help the moisture evap quickly whenever I pull the mats to air dry.

To cut rubber, just wet it and it cuts so much easier. Water and a little dish soap also makes cutting easier still.

Whatever you put under there, dont use the matting from a Range Rover Classic.
It's been proven to promote rust at speeds you can't possibly imagine!

That's good to know. Thanks.

Ironically, I'll be making some LWB rear mats out of some rubber (single piece) and a carpet set I've acquired to use as a template.

Stall mats are not a new trick by any stretch, but glad you found one locally. You can also find thick rubber mats made from recycled crumb rubber at Lowe's that are a perfect 3x5 and need no trimming. That's what's in the 2A and it looks great.

Thanks Don, 30 miles is close, especially by Suburban

That must have been terrible to cut! I thought 3/8" might be too thick haha.

Never thought I was reinventing the wheel, just raising awareness of the ease and cheapness of this.

I'm sure it would be quieter if I didnt have a rag top!

Heres a picture of the mat in my 90 John was talking about. I love it, 3'X4' fit perfectly. Its a little quieter...but my 2.5NA that is screaming on the highway doesnt exactly help with the noise
