Video: Installing Armorlite Flooring For Jeep Wrangler JKs

Jeep JKs are some of the toughest vehicles out there. But for all of their rugged traits and robust capabilities, their interiors can still get messed up big time. Not to mention, they aren’t the greatest when it comes to noise and heat insulation.

Fortunately, there is a solution. Called Armorlite, it’s a floor protector that installs cleanly into a Wrangler JK. It uses a special three-layer construction that combines durability, insulation, and noise suppression all into one.

Armorlite is a replacement flooring system for Jeep Wrangler JKs. The kit is specially designed to aid Jeeps with insulation, sound dampening, and dirt protection.

The parts that make up the whole start with the top layer – a proprietary thermoplastic blend. This layer is designed to protect the Armorlite, preventing scratching while also offering good grip and water protection. The middle layer is polyester and also offers styling options and rigidity, enhancing its fitment inside the cabin. Finally, the bottom layer is also polyester, but acts as a heat and noise shield. Now it’s easy to see how the sum of these parts makes for a fantastic whole.

In the above video, Auria showcases what it takes to install the Armorlite full vehicle kit, starting with the driver’s seat. To begin, the seat moves back and the center console trim is loosened. Working front to back, the Armorlite gets worked into its space, as its molded shape follows the contours of the interior. The mat contains drain plug holes to match the OEM design, and can be filled with Armorlite’s optional drain plugs if the customer so chooses.

At every step, you can see just how closely the Armorlite floor follows the design of the OEM floor. This makes for what will ultimately be terrific fit and finish. Even the wires for power seats are accommodated, thanks to pre-made holes in the Armorlite.

The rear follows the same procedure as the front, except that it spans both driver passenger sides. Once the flooring is in, it’s easy to see that Armorlite works well as a team, with the rear piece interlocking with the front pieces to make it all one-piece. All that’s left to do once the pieces are in is reinstall the center console trim, making sure that it comes down over the Armorlite, clamping it in place and reinforcing its structure.

When all is said and done, the Armorlite takes on the appearance of a factory-installed floor, but with the added benefits of durability, insulation, and noise suppression. For a job that you can do yourself in a day’s time, it’s an awesome investment and upgrade.

Once installed, Armorlite is ready to keep your JK protected. It even comes with holes for drain plugs, allowing you to retain that functionality from the OEM floor.

If you’re down to give your Wrangler JK a new and better interior, then we encourage you to check out more information on Armorlite’s website. And don’t forget to follow Armorlite on Facebook, too.
