Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Just got my Husky X-ACT delivered yesterday. They have a much better feel than the standard Huskyliners we have in our minivan. I haven't had a chance to install them yet, but I am very happy with the look and quality feel so far.

They are a softer rubber material compared to the more rigid plastic Weatherbeaters, so I can't image they will be very slick when covered with water and melting snow.

We are supposed to get some rain / snow in Chicago this week, so I will report back later.

Mike

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

I used WeatherTechs in my Enclave for six years and was very happy with them. The only complaints I had were that they were kind of slippery, and the coverage didn't go up on the dead pedal far enough. When I ordered my JGC I checked into them and found that the floor hook areas had a hole the whole way through the mat. I ended up ordering Husky Weatherbeaters. The fit is exceptional, they are not slippery, there are no holes going through, (this is important because of the extremely snowy winters we get in the "lake effect" areas), and the coverage is better than the WTs. I have both front and rear, and cargo, and really like them a lot. Glad I didn't get the WTs again. The coverage is especially good on the dead pedal, which is carpeted in my Overland. That was not the case in my Buick. Not to mention they're less expensive.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Can't Wait! I want to test the Jeep and the LTX M/S 2's, and get out the x-country skis.

I disagree. The Weatherbeaters are slick, when wet. Not as slick as WeatherTechs though. I wish the heal area for the gas pedal was ribbed too instead of smooth. That will help out a lot.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Just installed the Husky X-Act mats yesterday. Great fit and finish. I have Weather Tech mats in my other car and I like the Husky mats a lot better. The Weather Tech mats are hard and slippery, the Husky mats are softer and more rubber like, so less slippery. I also like that there are no through holes where the mats attach to the hooks in the floor. And for who is wondering, the Husky mats should fit both the '14 as well as the '13 and older JGC as the passenger side mat has 3 points to attach to the floor hooks, 2 on the outside for the '14 and 1 in the middle for the '13 and older JGC.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

I agree w/Moosehead

I have had the Rugged Ridge front and rear. I currently use a plastic drop cloth for the rear since I usually have the rear seat folded down for dog crates.

Rugged Ridge get a lot abuse from my boots which bring in mud, sand, dirt, water, ice, snow, grass, weeds, twigs and sheep poop.

They offer great coverage and still look good.

Quadratech just might be the Rugged Ridge mat. Not 100% sure.

They are less expensive than the Weathertechs.

I took the OEM mats out, the husky mats have a perfect fit without the extra layer of OEM mats underneath

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Kept oem mats them out, still new in plastic. I have the Weathertech, expensive, but great investment. If I consider the wear and tear I save on my carpets, and keep them looking as new as possible...the value of the car will be worth a few hundred dollars more. I figure the mats pay for themselves! Or Maybe thats just the way I justified spending $300 on floor mats?!?

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Just took the front Mopar slush mats out & put Quadratech liners in, like the fit and look like they will hold more, higher sides, and only $59.00 with free shipping! Will put the Mopars back in for summer. Dave

I was looking at the motor ones and liked them for the fact they said jeep on them and seemed decently rugged.
