Wondering if the washout floors from the BD and BL are removable and swapable. People have said it was softer and squishier than they thought it would be and now thanks to @bdub2you we have this photo.

Looks like the rubberized flooring is just a rubber carpet and completely removable. Drain holes are the only unknown (I think). What’s your all’s thoughts on it?

Does that mean it will be easier for water to collect underneath, between the flooring and the actual floor?

Yikes! From the picture yes, but that defeats the whole purpose of a washout interior. That would be like putting carpet on the back of the seat... oh wait! 😳

Without the opportunity to inspect it, I suspect that the washout flooring is basically just a water proof layer that replaces the normal carpet layer... and then there are the drain plugs that pass through it (instead of just existing underneath it somewhere).

So, you wont get a soggy carpet, and you can pull the plug to drain the water that collects... but you still have the matting that you would normally find under the carpet of a normal car.

I guess if it has an anti fungal agent applied to it, that might keep the water that gets around it from becoming green and stinky. 🤷‍♂️

That's a little concerning. Not what I expected. Could probably do a better job with aftermarket stuff like the jeep guys do. I just changed my trim from a BD to base w/ a bunch of BD options. Don't see the point of spending an extra $5k for MV, grab handles and rubber flooring. Rather take the money I save and just get better aftermarket stuff
