So I finally did it! I kept going back and forth on a Badlands and Wildtrak build and eventually went with a WT only thing was I needed vinyl floors. With my dog that practically goes everywhere with me shedding and drooling as much as he does carpet is not an option. Especially coming from an Element as his old car with vinyl flooring. Against almost everyone's advice I started buying up parts while I waited for my Bronco and I kept searching for a price break on the one piece vinyl floor unit that goes under the passenger seats that is available on the Black Diamond and Badlands trim. I knew with the slide out tailgate the rear vinyl one piece wouldn't fit or work and for approx $600-$700 it wasn't worth it. So anyway, I finally lucked out on WALMART of all sites, sold through Lasco Ford titled "Genuine OE Ford Floor Mat - M2DZ-7813010-BA" (which is discontinued) and only one left. . I reached out to @flip ( who is a godsend and couldn't thank enough as much as I bug him on all the parts and part # inquiries) on the part number to make sure it's good, which it was. Apparently the BA is a good number, but the parts look up only shows AA . I think the BA must be for a different region, considering it has a hard plastic panel under the front passenger seat area that's removable and says "VIN' (pictured below) which I don't mind considering the AA goes for $900-$1000 vs the $672 I paid. So I pulled the trigger in late November 2022 and waited and researched in the meantime until my Wildtrak was finally delivered on 2/13/2023. When I received the vinyl floor it was aged, looked dusty but it was just dried out, I ended up cleaning and conditioning it with a vinyl cleaner which restored it pretty well.

It appears the only thing needed for the transition was drain plugs. Under the carpet there are drain holes and rubber caps that serve as plugs. But from the install it looks like the drain plugs actually hold down the vinyl floor. The carpet and vinyl share the same clips, so nothing else was necessary. One thing I wish I knew before hand is both the carpet and vinyl floor both have a sound deadening rubber underneath. I purchased Soundskinz which I installed after pulling up the carpet but I'm pretty sure as others mentioned most of the noise is from the tops but might as well install if I'm going to remove the seats and carpet right?

I also hate that there isn't vinyl under the slide out tailgate table so after ordering a few different vinyl car mats I found one large enough to custom cut and it worked out great. I just wish I found one with a smooth surface instead of all the ridges and grooves.

Only one issue I'm having is trying to figure out how the vinyl under the rear passenger seat stays down, every time I lift or fold my seats the vinyl floor middle piece comes down while the outer hoops are secured by the bolts holding the seats. I will check out a Badlands or Black Diamond this weekend to see how its secured.

FYI Ford cross drilled the bolt on the rear Slide-out tailgate bracket so I'll be ordering another one.

What are the big rubber circles in picture ten? My car came with 2 of them just loose on the floor under a seat.

Those circles are the plugs used under carpet instead of the drain plugs on the vinyl floor. The assembly line must've left them in your truck.

Seems like Ford is leaving money on the table by not offering the washout floor as an upgrade option for those trims that it isn't standard. Many won't undertake the effort you did after delivery. I plan on doing the same thing on my newly delivered OBX. I have a Black Diamond that I love the washout interior.

Seems way easier to get the badlands and swap the heavy duty rack lol. That’s what I did. And upgraded to adjustable 2.5 coilovers with external resis to top it off. Plus you’d get the washout seats and a sta bar disconnect.

Try some 3M double sided tape?

Project looks good.

I had no carpet or anything on my CJ floors - just the metal body. Loved it. Easy to clean. The vinyl should be nice, but hopefully over time water doesn't find it's way between the vinyl and floor, as it will stay there a long time without evaporating.

Totally not related to this post but can you reach the storage underneath the slide out tailgate while it’s installed somehow? Or is that just gone until you uninstall?

It tilts up to access the storage/jack.

So is your Bronco now truly a washout? Do you have drain holes to spray out?

Thanks for the killer pictures. I'm going to a write up on how to convert a non-hard top prep kit Bronco to a hard top prep-kit Bronco soon, so these will be really helpful for when I start tearing stuff apart. Just one question. How hard was it to remove the plastic curb between the rear seat and the cargo area? Need to pull the back seat out at all?
