Rugged Ridge Floor Liners & Cargo Mat

After having used WeatherTech Floor Liners and cargo mats in at least 6 of my last vehicles - I wanted to try something different in my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland.

Since my exterior color is Maximum Steel and interior is Morocco Black, my older tan WeatherTech liners and cargo mat just didn't look right. One thing that has bugged me with WeatherTech is the edges after a while can sag or "curl" in a bit (hate that when I'm going to step on the gas pedal and I feel the outside of my foot contact the edge of the liner!).

I looked around quite a bit, thought about the slush mats by Mopar, etc. then ran across the Rugged Ridge (same as Quadratech) floor liners. I liked the tread design and they looked sturdy and capable.

Just received them 2 days ago - they still need to get some use and settle in, especially the rear liner. I like how the hole patterns on the front floor liners have 3 holes for the passenger side, making them compatible with any recent WK2 models (they have a plug that goes on any of the unused holes). The 2014's have 2 hooks on both the passenger and driver sides. My old WeatherTechs - I had to drill new holes for the passenger side to fit, as my 2012 JGC only had one hook.

Here are some initial pics for those who may be interested. I like that my foot doesn't slip or slide around on these mats while driving thus far.











I really like how well they complement the dark interior with the Morocco Black. We'll see how they hold up. I have seen some older threads about Rugged Ridge/Quadratech but thought I would give my own perceptions here.

Re: Rugged Ridge Floor Liners & Cargo Mat

I have had Rugged Ridge Floor Liners since May 2012 and they have held up to
mud, snow, slush, more mud, dogs and sheep poop and still look like new. I like the deep grooves that keep your boots/shoes above any water and muck.

Best part is they are significantly cheaper than the Weathertechs. Wish they made a cargo liner that covered the floor with the rear seats folded down.

My sis is on her second set of Weathertech in her 2006 Tahoe and that set has been ready for replacement for the last year.

One reason I bought them is that they are sturdy and really provide bang for the buck. Thanks for the feedback!

Yup, got a set just for the front from Quadratech, $68 shipped if I remember as I did not feel the Mopar Slush mats would be enough for the winter stuff. They are great so far, and have been getting a workout; good choice I think. Dave

Re: Rugged Ridge Floor Liners & Cargo Mat

It appears that the cargo mat covers the front tie down rings. Maybe just the photo angle?

No they have holes in the right spots for the hooks.

Re: Rugged Ridge Floor Liners & Cargo Mat

Sorry to bump an old thread.

WXChaser, how do you find the uncovered area under the accelerator pedal manages with the Nebraska winters (I'm assuming you get a lot of snow/salt dumpage as we do in Ontario).

I'm looking at options for mats having had experience with both the Weathertechs & the Husky Weatherbeaters.

I've had zero problems under the gas pedal even with lots of snow or rain. These are my favorite floor mats I've ever owned.

Thanks...do you find it difficult to remove the mats from the little pins in the floor to wash them?

I read a couple of reviews that it was a PITA to unhook the mats from the floor grommets.

Re: Rugged Ridge Floor Liners & Cargo Mat

neilboy - no, I don't find it too hard. I lift the top of the mat upward then the hooks release pretty easily. The first couple times I took them out it was a little more difficult but since then, piece of cake.
