Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Ordered them online from a place in Ontario called Part Engine. Actually the box just arrived 20 minutes ago.

Why do you ask Hemi?

I was just wondering what price point you got them for? I order a lot of my stuff on Amazon.ca as their prices are pretty decent with free shipping. It usually only takes 2 days for pkgs. to arrive here in Calgary. Gravity, what color Jeep are ya' sporting?

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Never even thought to check them out. I just did and any of the Weather Tech is shipped through the same place that I bought mine. Parts Engine.

I paid $139 delivered. Amazon had them for around the same price. Give or take $5

All good.

But thanks for the heads up.

Hemi, Noticed you did the KnN install. Happy you did or not a big difference? I can't decide. KnN has a deal on at the moment. $260 shipped.

I have the same color as yours man. Mine is the Summit.

Awesome! I just love the Cherry Pearl color! I have been using K&N CAI on a few different vehicles for atleast 15 years. I put the K&N on the Overland about a month ago and it rocks! It roars like a beast! It sure turns heads when I stomp on it! I don't know if it improves HP or gives me better gas mileage, though. But I don't care . . . I'm too busy stomping on it around town 'cause I just love the way it sounds! My next big purchase will be a Corsa cat-back exhaust. It runs about $1600 Cdn so it might be awhile before I get it! But it sure sounds awesome from the YouTube sounds tracks I've heard!
Cheers,
Warran

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Ha ha ha. I'd probably do the same thing if it sounds that good. My last SUV was black (and boring) and before that I had a Red Grand Prix GTP. My son has it now 260K on it and still purring like a kitten. I agree, I love the deep Cherry color. Only way to go. It looks great especially late evening just as the sun is going down. Two red vehicles in the garage now. Looks kinda weird. Neighbors are like "They sure love red?"

Maybe in the spring I'll pop for the K&N. See how fast I can go through a tank of fuel . The cat back will really roar when you get it.

In Sport mode you can hear a bit of growl when you stomp it. Coming back form Fairmont on 1 going up that big hill that has 3 lanes. I dropped it into Sport and punched it. Yeaaaaah baby it sounded good. I'll bet with the K&N it sounds even better.

Later man

Frank

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

For those of you that live in dry climates (low humidity) and have the Husky X-act contours, have you noticed whether or not they generate a lot of static electricity when you pull them out to clean them?

We have the Husky Weatherbeaters in our Subaru, but are considering the X-acts for our '15 WK2. The Weatherbeaters have always generated huge amounts of static electricity, making them nearly impossible to vacuum or shake off the dust/grass/hair/whatever. Hosing them off is an option that neutralizes the static electricity, but that's not always practical.

I'm just wondering if the rubbery material of the X-acts is less prone to that than the plasticy material of the Weatherbeaters.

Yes the rubbery material is much less prone to static charging as is common with the plastic Weatherbeater material. The X-act contour rubber material is also more durable and will lay flat and not tend to have the edges curl up after a few years like the Weatherbeaters. The X-act contours are also not as slick when wet and will not allow wet slop to stain your carpets thru the placement hook holes, as they don't have holes and are solid thru-out. I highly recommend them, as I have owned both and the X-act contours and the Weatherbeaters with the X-act contours being the superior product.

I'm pleased. They deliver a perfect fit, good coverage, thick and high quality construction, they clasp onto the factory retention hooks, and the rear is a nicely done one-piece wall to wall mat. Plus, these cost a lot less than the Weather Tech's.

I've had Weather Tech's in prior vehicles, and they are fine, but nothing special to justify double the price of the QuadraTec's.

Cheers,

Just ordered front and back set for my 2013 JGC. Thanks for the recommendation.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

I worked my way through this entire thread and collected all the manufacturers mentioned. I think I got them all so far. Thanks to all for all of your good info here. I have a tan interior so I want tan mats. Some of these come only in black.

amrunner4's post #17 has good reasons for choosing Husky front mats over Weathertech and Jeep:
Weather Tech or Husky Liner
Others did too. I'm leaning that way but haven't decided yet.

For Chunderboy who said do the foot clap thing to shake snow off your boots before entering, that won't help with thick mud that doesn't shake off easily. It does work with snow though. Or, like Setoutguy said it.

Thanks to Raptor for pointing to the jeepForum discussion for why those guys like Husky: husky liner differences - JeepForum.com

CocoMats
Welcome to CocoMats.com
These don't provide wide protection for weather challenges like mud and snow. They're nice and I got them for my wife's Jetta, but I need more coverage for the JGC when we do a little wheeling.

These web sites are for the manufacturers only. Pricing for a specific type may be better elsewhere like Amazon or Costco.

I'm leaning toward Husky Weatherbeaters front and rear, with Jeep or Canvasback cargo liner. Maybe both.

Fantastic summary echo7tango! The OP should just copy this into his post.

I've decided to go with the Husky X-act myself.

By the way, they are available on Amazon with free shipping (if you have Prime): $91.70 for front seat and
$88.96 for rear seat. Although you may have to pay tax, it's cheaper than I've seen on this thread.
