Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

You bought the Weatherbeater Huskeys? What is the big difference between the two models from huskey? I am think those or maybe the Rugged Ridge ones, but can't find many reviews on them. I am looking for something less slick then the WT or Husky ones if at all possible


I had WT in my 2012 and I noticed they were slippery when wet and EXTREMELY slippery when I brought it to the car wash and had any sort of soap or Armor All gets on the mats. Also the big sticker on them comes off and leaves a sticky mess of glue after about a year and half of use.

I had Weathertechs on my 2012 and looking at something a little less slippery in the back. The cargo liner I have now stuff slips all over it.
I personally can't answer that with 100% confidence just yet. Haven't received my parts.

But from reading, I suspect the Mopar mat is very similar to the OEM mat that was on the back of my Tacoma. It's a rubber mat. When you plant something on there, it sticks to it very well. Doesn't slide around much. Kinda pain in the ass though when I want to drag something like a cooler or whatever, lol.

As stated, I had WT interior mats for my Tacoma. It felt like a mix of plastic and rubber. More plasticy. Therefore, it was a tad slick when wet. But they were very durable.

I do like to change things up a bit and try new things. That's why I no longer have a Tacoma and 1st time Jeep owner.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

My answer was "neither". Based on good experience with these mats in our Wrangler for several years, I bought the "Ultimate Floor Liners" from QuadraTec for my '14 JGC Limited:

Quadratec Exclusive 14254 7006 - Quadratec® Ultimate All Weather Front Floor Liners for 13-14 Jeep® Grand Cherokee WK2 - Quadratec

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,

Dave

Are the quadratech ones more rubbery and heavy duty then the the weather tech ones?

Did you buy the cargo liner that matches or go with the mopar one?

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Had Husky liners in the old 96 GC and now in the 11 WK2. Love them in the front and rear passenger as well as the way back area.

Yes sir, they are thick, rubbery, flexible, and heavy. The Weather Tech's are more like hard plastic.

Neither . . . . I made one myself from a commercial entry mat from Home Depot. Works perfectly and shakes/hoses out to clean as needed.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Anyone know what carpet colors are in the 14 GC, have an overland ordered with the vesuvio blue and am trying to figure out floor mat colors.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

So I got my Husky liners today. Front and rear. They are very thin, borderline flimsy. But once you put them down on the carpet, they are solid.

The lightweight could be a good and bad thing. Don't know yet. Time will tell if your heel will wear through the mat or not.

I love the bigger coverage for the back. I was surprised by how much coverage there really is. Goes way underneath the front seats.

Hasn't rained yet since I got them. But I suspect they will be just as slick as the WT.

I do wish it covered more of the right side of the gas pedal.


I got my Mopar Jeep cargo mat. I like it. Things stick where you set it. I don't know how it doesn't sit as smoothly because of the ribs on the panel though. I thought about removing them.

I did spray 303 Fabric Guard on all the carpet in the cabin.

My thoughts exactly. I went from WT to Husky weather beaters. Wish I got the x-act huskys for more of a rubber feel.

Our Overland's Vesuvio carpets are close enough to black that we got black Weathertech mats. I would have to put a swatch of black carpet up to it, honestly, to see a difference. Our mats look just fine.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Any X-Act owners want to report if their mats are slick when wet?
