Re: Floor mats ??

I also went with the Husky mats and couldn't be happier. And the Mopar cargo mat is the best way to go.

Re: Floor mats ??

I just ordered from Husky as well. My 2014 has the tan interior and that shows the dirt quickly. I should have gotten these mats from the start, it would have saved my interior.

I'm now looking for a cargo liner and may want one that goes up the seat backs for broader coverage.

But I kinda like Lloyd's Camo Mats for the cargo area. Although they don't go up the seat backs. http://www.carid.com/lloyd-mats/lloy...-84217160.html

Re: Floor mats ??

The Mopar cargo mat is the best fit in my opinion.

Re: Floor mats ??

The Husky Weatherbeaters arrived and they look and fit great. Front & rear floor mats. I should've done this when my tan interior was new, those tan carpets sure show the dirt -- but I do like the lighter, brighter interior color.

Still haven't decided on the cargo area yet.

Re: Floor mats ??

What is the difference between the X act Contour and the weather beater? Same material and coverage?


The inside pattern looks different and it looks like with the weather beater you have to buy front & rear interior mats. The X act front and rear interior can be purchased separately


The x act have a higher price for the set. Wireman

True! I have '16 SRT. The mopar ones look nice, but don't fit well. They are the quality, thick rubber that is the same as all the OEM mats. We have a honda and an Acura and the floor mats are just like those, except those actually fit nicely but the mopar ones are too small. The backseat mopar ones are a joke. Don't even cover the floor. The trunk area mopar liner is very nice tho.

The weathertec ones suck. They are flimsy and plasticky looking.

Absolutely agree. This is what I'll be switching too. Just wish the husky's said mopar or jeep on them!

You can't go wrong with either for maximum slop (of any kind) protection. Both offer slop holding tray designs with zero holes for leakage and excellent dead pedal and up/under/around gas pedal.

I had the weatherbeaters in my '02 JGC Ltd for 8 years and they wore like absolute iron. The only probs with them are they have no real lugs or channels that effectively raise your shoe/heal/pant cuff above the soup swimming around in the mat so in the winter nice shoes and the back of your pant cuff get gunked. Also, they are a harder and stiffer plastic which in my experience (others reported it too) caused them to curl inward around the edges after about 3 or so years. I still used them but hated the look of the curled edges.

So when I got my '14 I found the X-Act Contours and they perfectly address these 2 issues. Raised slop channels and a nice soft supple rubber compound that hasn't so far, and likely won't, curl in. They offer slightly, minor, less around the gas pedal coverage, just not as big a clop holding "tray", but great virtually all but the worst snow melt situation.

If winter slop is part of your life the X-Act Contour is the schnitz! Yes, pricey but does and extra $x really matter spread over the life our your ownership.

If you don't get your answer here you may want to give them a call. It may end up being marketing BS for something extra they do to get mats which they will claim to fit better and therefore charge you more. My weather beaters fit pretty well.

It might also be an interesting exercise if you bought both, compare when they arrive, report back and let us know your impressions, and then return the one or both that you don't like. Your time, effort and money (return shipping) for our benefit.

Semper Fi,
echo7tango


Edit: okay, I see Cleveland OH has reported in and our threads crossed. Good to know those differences and the extra cost could be worth it to save that winter slop from dirtying your trousers. I will keep a lookout for my mats curling their edges in a few years.

Thanks for your post, GoPlzGo.

Re: Floor mats ??

echo7tango, to be honest, I'm not one to buy different models, etc. and then return them. The wife does more than her fair share of that.


So I like to do my research and than make my purchase. That said, I'll probably go with the X-Act contour model. Price difference is not a issue. I just need the front set and not much worry about snow & slush here in SoCal.


The one area I was concerned about is the dead peddle area. I don't understand why Jeep didn't build in a rubber area to keep the wear down. It doesn't take long to start wearing there. It looks like Husky and Weathertech have addressed that issue.


I will give Husky a call to get more info on the differences. I do have the Mopar rear cargo mat and it is great quality and works well.


Thanks for the info. S/F Wireman

Thanks for your post, GoPlzGo.
Thx, yeah, they probably tweaked the formula of the weatherbeaters from 10 yrs ago....nothing is a bigger volume slop trough than these tho.

Wireman, since u r SoCal check out the Rugged Ridge (soft rubber, big lugs, decent dead pedal, weak gas pedal coverage) and the WeatherTech's (most "handsome" mats and very good overall coverage but I couldn't live with the hole for the hook since I am always removing to dump melted snow)....more options with your great weather.
