Re: floor & cargo mats

for the rear, I went with a black carpeted mat... can't even remember where I ordered it from, ha. They didn't have our new logo, so it says SRT8, which is no biggie, it's still a cool looking logo. Just wanted some protection back there... I don't carry a wet dog in back, so didn't really need wet & slush protection.

Re: floor & cargo mats

I originally bought the ExactMats for the entire truck and was very disappointed in the look and functionality of them...water off my shoes would just roll right off on to the side and into the carpet..it was just a flat plastic surface with no edges or ridges and to make matters worse, they didnt stay put as people got in and out of the truck.

After 4 months of being pissed about the $180 I spent on the exactmats..I found some "like new" Husky WeatherBeaters for the front and back on Amazon with free shipping for $104...They fit perfectly and I chose them over the weathertechs because I like that they go up to the edge of the door and up high over the dead pedal...in the back the have a reservoir piece that goes up under the front seats that looks like it would hold an entire can of coke if needed...

I chose not to get the Husky for the cargo liner because I dont like the way the lip sticks up in the back and all the way around a couple of inches tall and flimsy...the black rubber JEEP mat from Mopar looks great and is a nice heavy and grippy rubber that looks like it could hold a pretty good spill no problem.

Long Story short, the Huskys and jeep cargo mat are the way to go, they haven't moved an inch, are not plasticity feeling..I did have to take the OEM Carpet Mats out of the front to get them to fit properly (Gas Pedal didnt appear to be able to go all the way down) but left the carpets under the mats in the back although I can't explain why

I have a 10% off Moparexpressparts.com coupon that came with the cargo mat if anyone wants it!

Re: floor & cargo mats

My opinion won't matter now since you've already ordered (and may not matter regardless ... ). I fretted over this decision for a while and finally decided on the husky x-act contour (*not* the weatherbeater). After watching Husky's videos on them, and reading the description they looked like the best of all worlds - the same protection as the weatherbeaters but a more rubber-like material.

I have the husky x-acts front-and-rear and think they're great. I went with the Jeep cargo mat for the rear. I'm so-so on the Jeep cargo mat. It's nice in that it's a good material, nice and rubbery so things don't slip and it's tailored pretty well to the Jeep's back. But it doesn't have the same protection as the liners with a raised edge - however after having one with a raised edge on my previous SUV, I know that's both a pro and a con. That raised edge can make it awkward getting things in/out and when you are loading lots of stuff with the seats down. So I decided to try one without the raised edge for a while to see how I like it.

The one thing I didn't like about the x-acts is the 1-2 in. gap stepping in and out.

Which is why I preferred the weather beaters. Honestly I haven't found a mat that covers as much as these.

Hmmm... looking at the pictures, it seems like they have basically the same coverage. And certainly with mine, the mats extend out over the door sill. I can't imagine them providing much more protection without interfering with the door.

Re: floor & cargo mats

FWIW, this is the video that swayed me from the weatherbeaters to the x-acts:

From some pictures I saw online, not in a GC, they looked like it was a tub style that just went up the edge not over like this pic. These basically meet the plastic door will. If those are the same then I believe they are better because of the more rubbery material.

Yeah, the x-act contours go out over the sill. I could've sworn I already posted a photo somewhere, but I can't find it offhand. I'll snap one before I head home.

Re: floor & cargo mats

We went with the Weatherbeaters because they matched the Jeep Nepal light tan interior. The black looked a little 'stark' against it.

Order all the bits from AuthAuthority for 20 percent off and then found the Mopar Pedals on Ebay for $47.50 shipped - a good day!!!

Now all I have to get are the cross rails for our Thule Sidekick Box !
