    My Jeep stinks bad need help

    I got a new Jeep and it's pretty nice but the smell is horrible. It sat as a farm vehicle for some time. I do t know if the smell is from maneur or mice getting inside. But my only thought was to sweep thoroughly and try to shampoo what I could. Any other advice ? Should I remove all the seats ? Should I just splurge on new carpet ?

    What model ? TJ we jk...

    Wrangler models seats and carpeting come out easily.


    Several times I've had the jeep filled with sweaty muddy Boy Scouts and camping gear after outings. I've pulled the plugs and taken dish soap or simple green, a scrub brush and a garden hose in. Used my 16gal wet dry vac to dry it as best as I could. Back carpet I'd pull and let dry in the sun on the back porch.
    The vac could almost dry the seats fully.

    If it's skunk might try oxy clean. Skunk needs to be oxidized.

    I'm not sure but replacing the carpet is an option. I found a site www. Ocautocarpets.Com and you can get the whole carpet(minus rear cargo area) for $130. That's the cheapest I've found so far. I have a bad odor problem as well so I'm considering changing mine out. But otherwise my final try is temove the seats , sweep thourogly and shampoo the carpet.

    Be me, I'd pull the carpets, and replace them. Also be a good opportunity to check, and / or fix any rust that might be under them.
