Gravity would keep it attached only in the Southern Hemisphere where everything is opposite of here.

This is the true spirit of customization. Congrats for thinking outside the box.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I think you guys are missing out on one of the major aspects of the Factory Cargo Mat.

I bet you have noticed those of you that have installed the mat that whenever you the check the mat is always at the same place you left it....but I bet that you didn't notice that once you installed it and the mat was enabled the anti gravity function becomes active. The next time you go shopping with the wife open the rear tailgate and take the mat with you. It will hover at the same height out of the Jeep as it does when in the Jeep. Effectively creating a Jeep based shopping cart.

Take it into the store load it up and then take it back to the Jeep for a no lift loading of the goodies from the store. Upon your arrival to your house just open the tailgate again and take it in the house for unloading.

I understand the second generation mat will have heating and cooling abilities to keep frozen food cold on the return trip or even keep you favorite pets paws warm on those long winter drives.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

Seems lately everyone's mats have been performing quite well. Except for mine.... I have been extra careful and gentle with my mat. It has always been serviced regularly.

I was on the way home today when I noticed a strange noise coming from the cargo area. I pulled over (no CK Mat light) to see what was going on. Upon opening the rear hatch, I saw something I never expected to see. It appears I have blown the Mat gasket. If anyone has any suggestion on where I can get an aftermarket replacement, please let me know. They are on national backorder from Chrysler!

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

In that the WK2 was largely designed by Mercedes you might try a ML350 cargo mat gasket. Be sure to post photos of the install.

I will order the gasket soon. Hopefully my replacement camera will arrive before the install. A brand new Canon DSLR was damaged when the mat gasket failed.

It was. Myself, along with some friends were on the way to go seal clubbing when the gasket failed.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I first saw the cargo mat one year ago, right then I new I had to have it.
I saved for many many months, then I finally ordered it in July.
I was going to buy another Mitsubishi, but I knew the mat wouldn't fit right, and I couldn't do that to my mat.
That would be like buying your misses a diamond ring only to then keep it in your anus.
It sounds good in theory, but you know it's just not right.

I get to pick it up tomorrow, pretty excited.
I have kept a close eye on this thread because I really don't want to screw it up after waiting so long.
