Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

It's a great combo! Very happy with mine like I stated earlier. I have the Mopar cargo liner as well, love it.

The waiting sucks for sure...mine took 6 weeks. Only issue I've had is the darn radio and amp connection. I hope yours is trouble free!

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

I really like the mopar mats. They seem to be a little better year round option. They feel like they are all rubber, no cheap feeling hard plastic and the part I really like is that they have grand cherokee in big letters.

They just look like they belong there rather than an aftermarket purchase.

I know I'm in the minority with my love for the mopars but I wouldn't use any other mat.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Hi, I'm new to the forum.

My wife just bought a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Eco-Diesel & we're looking for floorliners.

We've had great success with both the Weathertech & Husky Weatherbeaters, although the Weathertechs have a higher end look.

This time we thought we'd try a new floor liner made by U-Guard called Maxpider 3D. The guys on the Ford F150 forums were raving about them.

2010 SCREW 3d maxpider floor mats. *REVIEW* - Ford F150 Forum - Community of Ford Truck Fans

I think the Aries 3D mats are the same thing as they look identical.

Anyway, we bought a set through Costco. They look fantastic & have a real high tech feel to them. The top surface is rubber & not slippery like the Weathertechs & Huskys, while the underside is like a Velcro-ee surface that prevents the mats from slipping around.

I was totally sold on them until I put them in the Jeep & saw that there was no coverage under the accelerator pedal & the side coverage did not go up very high when compared with the Weathertechs & Huskys.

Taking them back to Costco tomorrow.

So if you're looking for a superior looking mat & don't care about the coverage, these would be great for you. Since we get some pretty harsh winters here in Ontario, I want the better coverage of Weathertech or Husky.....now just have to decide between the two.

Had not seen those before.Thanks for the review. I've had my Husky x-acts for 8 months now in our '14 WK2 and still love them. Dont think I will ever go back to weathertechs. I have weathertechs in my truck and they are a little slippery when wet and are starting to fold over on formed corners. The old style plastic huskys in my WJ are doing the samething but the x acts are not. They are not slippery at all (more rubber feel)and provide excellent coverage. Also, as another member stated water can seep though tie down hole on the techs. X-acts snap on factory tab(no sliding) and don't have this problem. Just my two cents though. Get what works best for you and welcome to forum. Some great info and help on here.

I'm torn between the two Husky style mats & the Weathertechs. My wife likes the looks of the Weathertechs better but I like the Husky Weatherbeaters for the coverage and how they look blacker.

For anyone who has the X-Act Contour, how are they holding up for wear and tear on the heel portion of the mat. Below is a great comparison of the tow Husky mats. The reviewer said that the heel portion of the X-Act Contour was showing marks from his sneakers right away...so I'm concerned they may not wear well.

Excellent review.

Good vid. I agree with your wife on the looks. I think the weathertechs look the most upscale but cannot stand the looks when they start folding over which is what I was afraid the weatherbeaters will do. I do wish the X-acts were a little darker black but were not bad enough to sway my decision. As far as wear is concerned, mine did show marks first couple times. I just wiped with a damp cloth and they went away. Im not sure if it is a coating that comes on them at first or what. I usually get in sand or mud here. If your tracking in alot of big sharp rocks they might scuff. Either way I hope this helps a little and didn't make decision worse.lol I took two months to decide myself.

I like the Mopar ones for the front, but have WeatherTech in the rear. The Mopar rear ones are just not enough coverage for all the places my kids step on the floor back there.
I've been very satisfied with the WeatherTechs since installing them in the rear.
You can see the coverage difference.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

Mopar needs to fix the size of the rear mat. Other than that glaring shortcoming, they seem to be of the highest quality. Especially the cargo area mat.

They also seem to be holding up well through the first few months of use. No signs of wear.

Re: Weather Tech or Husky Liner

I ended up making a decision (after humming & hawing for far too long).

I'm going with the Husky Weatherbeaters in the front & back seating areas and the Mopar mat for the rear. I need things to stay in place in the cargo area & the Mopar mat fits that bill.
