Heads Up - Weather Tech Liners for 2013

After picking up our 2013 GC, I ordered the Weather Tech Liners, front and rear. They did not list 2013 on the drop down, so I ordered the 2012 set, which seemed a pretty safe bet.

They arrived this morning and the passenger side does not fit. Apparently, Chrysler changed the way the mat is held in place. In lieu of one center retention point, as the current liner/mat has, the '13 GC now has two, just like the drivers side.

I sent an e-mail off tonight and will post any updates I receive from Weather Tech.

Anyone know how those retention points are attached to the carpet. I thought about removing them and then using one, in the center mount position, for the liner.

Whether Tec make a two hole passenger mat. I think the 2011 WK2 had two holes, at least some of them did.

Thanks! That gives me hope they can simply replace this one. I have been to their site and only see the one with the center mount.

Thanks..I just received a return e-mail from them, this evening, with the same information. They offered to do a complete return and refund. I asked if I could just use these until the new ones are released and then buy the passenger side only. That would work for me. This is the wife's Jeep and she goes off road to take photos, and winter is coming..

I have an '11 WK2 and my front passenger mat has just one hole.

Re: Heads Up - Weather Tech Liners for 2013

I sent a second e-mail to McNeil, but still no response. So, I removed the retention tabs from the carpet, and covered the openings with industrial velcro. The weather tech liner now lies flat and does not move. I will reinstall the retainers when the new mats come out, with the double holes.
