Re: Best Floor /Cargo Mats

Love the Jeep (Mopar) floor mats and cargo mat. These are thick, heavy, rubber mats that have served their purpose well with all of the snow here. I actually don't mind the Jeep logo because, after all, I am driving one.

BTW: I'll NEVER order another product from Weathertech. Worst customer service I have ever experienced. Ordered some mats for another car and they weren't as described - didn't even have holes where they should be for mat retention. You better be a type B person to deal with a return from that company (hell, even an initial order), otherwise you'll blow a gasket getting a "return number" through their antiquated phone lines, then paying to ship it back yourself, then having to call back a month later to ask where your credit is...

Seems we're all happy with the mats we've purchased regardless of the brand. That's all that matters.

Very true, but we shouldn't present incorrect facts to members who are trying to make a decision. Remember, they need to decide what is best for them; they are just looking for some user data. Thats the whole idea, right?

Re: Best Floor /Cargo Mats

I have the WeatherTech DigitalFit mats for 1st & 2nd row and am very pleased. They fit perfectly, gromet holes are right where they should be, 2nd row covers center hump. With all the snow we've had in the NE I've had no problems with water / mud. Personally I like the more refined look of the WeatherTech it matches nicely to the more upscale look of the WK2 interior. I have the Jeep Slush Mat for the cargo area, I like seeing the jeep logo when I open the cargo area. I ordered my WeatherTech's direct from their website and they arrived sooner than expected. (The website did not update the order status until after they arrived, oh well.) The Slush Mat I purchased from the dealer where I got my GC.

Re: Best Floor /Cargo Mats

Bit the bullet and ordered the Weathertechs. They'll deliver tomorrow (I hope). I've had them in previous trucks and they were fantastic as far as coverage and ease of cleaning them. My ONLY gripe is they are made out of a hard plastic material, and that feels kind of cheap to me. Also, your feet don't "grab" on them like a rubber mat.

I plan on using my heat gun and removing the Weathertech sticker. I'll post up pics when I get them.

In my opinion the husky brand was the way to go. (For me) Knowing how much crap I track into my vehicle, I wouldn't have been comfortable with mats that have holes for the eyelets. Of course... YMMV. Besides ... I already had dirt from the stock mats from the holes. With my new mats. No issues

I know there is no one that covers the sill, that wouldn't work haha. It just looks like those almost channel everything towards the sill, Which I guess is probably a good thing.

The Factory ones just seem to have much more cut out space that seems like it would hold more water/mud.

So far it seems the consensus is you can't go wrong with anything.

That pretty much sums it up. You're going to get every opinion under the sun when you ask "What's the best [insert item]?" Seems like this question has generated lots of opinions but also some objective facts which hopefully are helpful.

For my money the Mopar slushies (and rear cargo mat) are getting it done. As reported, they are nice and grippy without being sticky. In another thread there was a discussion about how to keep the pilot's seat surface from wearing prematurely. One idea was to saddle up with your right foot as far into the footwell as possible. The texture and grip of the Mopar mats makes this a very stable maneuver.

I also like the aggressive tread-like surface on them. Looks cool and manly. Some have commented on the Jeep logo but it is in the same color as the mat so it is tasteful and understated, and it looks custom because it is. Finally, I was initially concerned that the more rubbery finish would be tough to wash but that is not the case. I brought them in the other day, hit them with some kitchen spray cleaner and the pullout sprayer in the kitchen sink and they were good to go. After I removed them I vacuumed thoroughly and did not find any evidence that the holes had admitted any dirt or liquid. I think that this is more of a theoretical (albeit inarguable) concern than a practical concern that the hole will be an issue. Granted we have not been especially sloppy here since I got my WK2. By the looks of some other owners' mats this could be a concern in other climate zones I suppose.

Wow, I can't believe I just wrote a treatise on my Mopar WK2 slush mats. Hope my wife doesn't find out. She already gives me crap for being a Jeep geek. She almost busted a gut laughing the first time I told her about some slush mat photos I saw online from other proud owners. She doesn't get it, obviously.

It's part of where I go daily. Nothing I can do about tracking stuff in the vehicle. (I do knock the excess of my boots) But, my daily trek includes areas that aren't paved. (and always has gravel, mud, slush, etc. in the Winter) These are easy to simply hose or wipe off.

Re: Best Floor /Cargo Mats

I got the Mopar Slush Mats. They have a great coverage area, and fit extremely well. I also got the rear cargo mat. For the price I paid(< $170), shipped to my house in 2 business days, I'm completely happy!
