Weathertech Question

I have a 15 grand cherokee and noticed that weathertech has 2 options for my model year. Looks like march of 15 jeep changed something about its floor plan. I have found someone that has a set to sell but they came out of a 2013 an mine was manufactured in July of 2015 making it call for the "new" weathertech mats. I tried contacting weathertech to see what they changed and the gentleman I spoke to said he wasnt sure exactly what the difference is. I was just curious if any of you know if the pre march mats will fit my jeep cause if so I will save about $150 buying the used set.

Re: Weathertech Question

The pre March liner will fit. The right hand front side is the one that is slightly different. You have to push it down next to the bulge by the kick panel.

OK but is it enough different that's its noticeable or doesn't function properly or are we talking millimeters here

Weathertech won't change tooling just for few millimeters.

That's what I was worried about but they do advertise an exact fit so they may not like to but may have no choice.

Re: Weathertech Question

Go with the Husky exact contour mats. Not as slick, more rubbery feel. Lifetime warranty also.

Re: Weathertech Question

I had Husky Weatherbeaters in my 14... they fit just fine in my 16 HA.

This is because the Husky's are more rubbery/flexible. The weathertec's are a lot more rigid and thus less adaptable to differences.

+1 on the Husky's. I put a set in my 2016 GC and love them.

Re: Weathertech Question

I wish I knew early on about the Huskys before I purchased the Weathertec sets.

No argument with that. But I'd have to think that even with a more rigid material, a very minor change to the passenger side foot well wouldn't create a fit issue as others have pointed out. And if that change was more than minor I think I'd have noticed it even with my more flexible Weatherbeaters. They popped right in and seem to fit just as well in my 16 as they did in my 14.

Who knows?
