The 3rd row is really only for the 40/60 bench so I just got front and second row so far. I really love how they say Durango on them, but I wish they said it in red. Maybe this is something I can do as a project. Very happy with these mats in the first half hour I've had them, lol.
Mats? Awwww, I think you posted the pics so we could see your very cool lights!

Lol. I really did it to show the fit as many people are asking and unhappy with certain mats. I'd like to see the weather techs if someone has pics? As for the light photos, they are there as a teaser for a few of the guys who are interested in my other thread about the ambient lighting....

And also because I couldn't get through the next hour with out knowing wether or not a kick ass woman such as yourself thinks my lights are cool!

Ha....I'm all talk, very little cattle. And apparently still attempting to learn how to speak Texas. I think your mats from your dealer fit very nicely. And Vertrkr can likely give you a dozen great suggestions for ways to add color to "Durango" on them. Can you outline in lights, perhaps? Never mind, that's getting tacky. Wish we could get the lighted sill guards, but that's for another thread.

The Weathertech may come up higher on the sides, but that might be their only advantage. I took some phone pics of my new Weathertech mats, but the front pics didn't turn out well at all, so I might retake in the daylight tomorrow. I have the captain's chairs and console, and the single second row mat fits very nicely, but not sure that will be apparent from the picture.

Okay this is a little off topic, but in the mat pics I just posted I think I can actually see the light on the passenger side hanging down. What the ???

Just gotta look upside down and see if it's mounted properly. I'll try and peek at ours tomorrow.

In some ways the MOPAR mats look like a better fit than the Weathertechs up front. I do like how the Weathertech covers the middle. We have the captains/console too, but nice to have that section protected.

I have to wonder, based on the descriptions on the box that you described if they're (Weathertech) using a mat more properly designed for the JGC (larger market there) for the much smaller Durango market rather than doing the full, custom fit they advertise.


Laurel, nice sill plates. Can we get another shot or two of those?

Thanks Dave. I'll take a look myself, but I will have to back it out of the garage to be able to open the door wide enough to take a good look. There is a lawn mower currently in my way. And, yes, I'll try to take a better pic if the sill plates. Glad I got them on eBay because I'm not sure they are worth paying full price for.

I agree about the fit of those MOPAR mats, and your suspicions about Weathertech catering to the larger JGC market might be exactly right. Hmmm..

More pics in better light tomorrow.

Strange, mine go to the edge. I think they sent you the wrong mat. Might want to double check what part# you received on the box. It should be #444851. Heck, they might have put the wrong part in the right box. I'd return those and get them to pay for shipping. Weathertech's pic shows a mat like mine, flush to the edge and a little curve around the kick panel.

I checked the box and the mat, and the numbers match. The problem seems to be that the left side is raised, and when I push it down it fits perfectly. Fits well all the way around, except for that raised edge. Taking a seven hour drive Monday...wonder if I can weight that left edge to help it conform better, or perhaps a blow dryer might help. Last resort might be double sided tape.

And the sill guards are okay, not a perfect finish match and the rear guards are skimpy. Stuck like glue, so think I'll keep them until they are so scratched up I decide to replace them. Not much contrast against the billet. Lighted sill guards, especially on the Citadel, would have been a nice option. Can't wait to see which one of you guys posts pictures of how you already figured out how to do that.

Still contemplating splash guards and side steps.

You don't still have the factory mats underneath the weathertechs for these pics do you? If so that would make sense about the fit.

Nope. Took Gtaz's safety advice and removed.

mannichine is on a distinguished road
So--a bit of a loaded question here, but do we have any sort of consensus yet regarding Husky X-Act Contour vs Weathertech DigitalFit in the first two rows?

Any known solutions for the third row in Ds with captains chair second rows?

V--how are the Weathertechs working out?

Laurel--any improvement on that side misfit issue?

Any others out there who have had issues like Laurel?

Would any of you do things differently? Same?

Thanks in advance for your input!

Working out pretty good. 1st & 2nd row have perfect fits but I wish the 1st row had a little more coverage front and back. I did order the Husky weather beater and it had better coverage front/back but returned them as I didn't like the plastic like material and the tan color was off, more like olive. Looks like the X-Act Contour has the same rubberized material as WeatherTech but it only comes in black. I'll probably give those a shot if they ever come out with tan.
