    Floorboards hotter than fuck ...

    Florida summer's brutal.

    JK with stroker hemi. Tub's been sprayed with Line-X Ultra and I threw in some thick rubber floor mats. Still too hot.

    Lookin' for some suggestions on some sorta insulation blanket/flexible material to throw on the floor to try to cool my feet down some.

    Any ideas??

    I had the problem on my motorcycle that had the exhaust routed under the seat area. Bike was hot to ride, panels were hot to touch, it was a little uncormfortable. I did a couple things and the combination worked great. First I wrapped the exhaust pipe with that fiberlass exhaust heat wrap. That alone made a big difference. Then on the inner parts of the panels on the bike I added the adhesive heat insulation, it is like a thick piece of tin foil on a rubber mat with adhesive backing. The combination made a huge difference. Maybe if you got some room you can bend up some heat sheilds between the tube and exhaust

    But people have reservations about the exhaust wrap on a truck, it traps mud against the pipe and makes things rust out quicker, if you get oil on the wrap it will never stop smoking. If you are concerned about that you can remove, clean and re wrap periodically. Perhaps also applying a high heat resistant paint prior to wrapping the pipe will prevent the rust too.

          Exhaust is so tight that it's hard to even touch ... much less wrap. But thanks. Wish I'd of had the whole system ceramic coated inside and out but too late for that now.

          Cool idea sir. Already gotta heat shield 'tween the pipe and the tub.

          Think I might of found the answer right under my damn nose. Was in the engine room on the dredge this mornin' and noticed the exhaust wrap on our 3304 generator ...

          It's a fiberglass mattin' and 'bout an inch thick. That turbo gets hotter than my floorboards!

          Gonna have to get with one of the shipyards we use to see 'bout gettin' a coupla hunks.


          Stay tuned ....

                  How are you going to fit heat jacket when you allready said its to tight to fit header wrap?

                    I've found that line-x doesn't really do shit for heat. You would think it would, but it doesn't after hours of use, the heat still soaks through.

                    Best thing is to keep the heat from actually getting to the floor, figure out a way to put heat shields in between the exhaust and the floor, with an air gap if possible. At that point, the line-x and rubber matte will probably be sufficient. You might need to re-do the exhaust to get room.

                      Thanks for the info ... I'll check out what they got.

                      Reminds me of my grandpa tellin' stories of puttin' block ice on the floorboards of his Model T goin' across the Mojave back in the day. A possibility for sure sir.

                      Can't go near the exhaust. Thinkin' of puttin' the exhaust wrap material on the floorboards and then puttin' the floor mat on top of that.

                      The Rhino linin' in my buggy did great for heat ... agree the Line-X Ultra don't.

                      Done got heat shields already 'tween the exhaust and the tub. They ain't doin' much neither.

                      Lots goin' on under my jk and not much option for exhaust routin'.


                      Thanks to all for the feedback.

                            Interestin' option Mr. Hall Monitor.

                            Likin' the Stealth Shield 'cause it's made for the inside of the tub and a fella ain't gotta glue it down. Buy some sort of jk front carpet kit and lay that over the top to protect the Stealth Shield and then put my floor mats on top of the carpet. Maybe won't burn the soles of my boots no more and all easily removable if'n I ever get a wild hair up my ass and wanna clean the interior.
