Re: Floor mats ??

I called Husky and found out the difference between the X act contour & the weather beater.

What they told me is the X act contour is thicker material & a more rubber like material. Thus the price difference.

Going with the complete set of X act contour's. Thanks for everyone's input.

I think you'll be happy with the X-act, let us know once you get them installed.

Re: Floor mats ??

Do the X-Acts come in any color other than black?

Re: Floor mats ??

Just installed a set of Rugged Ridge molded mats I picked up off Amazon. I paid $89 shipped with Prime as a "used" item (original packaging was damaged) but actually a new item.

They arent "laser measured" like weather tech's, but is still custom fitted and with even brand new pricing, still about half the cost. The second row mats are 1 piece that goes across the entire row.

Very nice and has good side wall protection. I think msrp for "new" is about $145.

Re: Floor mats ??

Just received the Husky X act contour front floor liners. Still waiting on the rear mat.

Didn't really know what to expect not being able to get a hands on look at them. I decided to get them based on input from this site. I'm really impressed with the quality, fit and the material is exactly what I wanted.

It's not slick, unlike the weather tech's I saw at 4 wheel parts. Pricey yes, but a lifetime warranty makes up for it.

I'm letting them sit and air out since they do smell just coming out of the box.

They are as good as advertised. JMO. Wireman

Re: Floor mats ??

Soo... my .02...

I got the weathertechs front rear and cargo area the week I bought the jeep. getting close to 2 years old now. Heres my thoughts.
My first impression upon receiving them was that for the money they did seem thinner and plasticky-er then I was hoping for the price. this however has not been a problem or deterred them from working beautifully in all conditions(including lots and lots of winter snow and slop, desert sand and mud) I do have a couple nit picks with them however;
1.) the front mats could be easier to take out and dump,
2.) as others have said the dead pedal coverage could be better(why jeep decided carpet instead of an actual dead pedal covering is beyond me)
3.)Probably my biggest issue with them-I got the one piece second row mat that covers the tranny hump(hehe) and it is IMPOSSIBLE to take out of the car and dump without pouring everything on the carpet first.
and 4.) not really anything to fix it but when i sleep in the back with the seats down the lip to retain liquids in the cargo mat sticks up right into my back.
Someone was mentioning wanting a mat to cover the seatbacks when folded down, I'm not sure how to pull this off and have it able to work with the seats in an up or down position, but if it comes out I'm definitely buying it. My weathertecs were starting to look a bit faded and worn so i decided a back to black type product would be perfect to get them new again( i didn't fork out the dough for the one weathertec offers) which may have been a mistake since it gave a shiny silvery coating that looks like crap. its a good thing I tested an inconspicuous area first(the drivers mat..)
On a side note...when I buy a "Trail Rated off road machine" I would like to see vinyl flooring throughout maybe with a couple of drain plugs to pull. Carpet is stupid in any vehicle that sees lots of off roading and camping use.. hell I'd happily trade my air suspension for the coil overs and a rubber floor throughout. back when subaru started making the outback they offered a trim with washable seats, vinyl floors like I described and all dash and electrical components sealed, the idea being you could hose out the interior. Brilliant!
I looked at the husky's too and don't remember what tipped me towards the weathertec(maybe husky didn't have a cargo liner?) I didn't like the slush mats from jeep due to the tire track pattern(no symmetry) real bad trigger for my OCD. Any who..thats what I've gone through and if I did it all over again the only thing I would change would be to give up a little second row coverage and go with the 2 piece mats there so I could actually get the crap out of the car and not just pour it all on the carpet Im trying to protect.

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
This is my take on the differences between the X-act Contours and the regular Husky Weatherbeaters.

First let me say I've owned both for my 2012 WK2 Summit.

Get the X-Act contours as they are the better of the two liners from Husky. Of course they cost more, but in this instance you get what you pay for! For the record the soft rubber compound construction of the X-Act contours is superior to the slippery when wet regular Husky liners, as well as the slippery when wet Weathertech liners (Without the troublesome liquid leaking Weathertech holes for footwell mounting hooks!). The deep groove tread design of the X-Act contours is excellent but I will say the coverage of the X-Act contours is NOT as good as the regular Husky Weatherbeater liners. The dead pedal area doesn't rise as high as it does with the regular Husky Weatherbeaters and the trays are slighty smaller as they rise up the footwell area on both the drivers and passenger sides. The rear X-Act contour footwell liner is also just slightly smaller towards the rear door sill areas and over the middle hump than the regular Husky Weatherbeater rear liner. Over time the hard plastic regular Husky Weatherbeaters and the hard plastic Weathertechs will curl over/inward at the edges reducing footwell carpet protection. This will not happen with the soft rubbery X-Act contours as they do lay flat and stay that way over time. These are the best winter/bad weather liners I've owned and I've tried all the top brands, I just wish they had that little bit extra carpet coverage the regular Husky Weatherbeaters have!

Also keep in mind the more expensive rubberized Husky X-Act contour liners come with a no questions asked lifetime warrantee! Can't beat that!!

Re: Floor mats ??

Raptor, I can't judge the coverage between the 2 but I'm keeping these because of what I and others have stated.

It's great to see a product do what the manufacturer claims it will do.
Again, I'm really impressed with the quality.

Re: Floor mats ??

I received the rear 1 piece Husky Xact contour floor liner and I can't say enough good things about the quality, fit, finish and feel of these floor liners.


Great fit, not slippery like some plastic feeling liners. These feel more like rubber.


I'm letting both the front and rear liners air out for a week before I put them in the Jeep.

I was going to go with the MOPAR ones because I could get them for $105+tax from dealer. I don't like the coverage so I now think the X-act Contours are the best option for front and rear and then the MOPAR for the back. I will also be installing the Canvasback tomorrow. I think my only concern would be the color difference between the Husky and MOPAR if there is any.
