Extended Cargo Mat Available ?

I purchased the Mopar cargo mat which is nicely designed, but I need a mat that extends over the backs of the rear seats when they're down.

Anyone know of an extended mat that's custom fitted ? If not, can you recommend the best material from which to fabricate a 48"x30" extension to the mopar cargo mat ??

TIA....

Steve

Re: Extended Cargo Mat Available ?

I use two 3x4 ft mats that I bought at Home Depot for $10 each. They mostly overlap to cover the cargo area, the back is 100% recycled rubber which remains pliable even in extreme cold. I made a cut about a foot deep along the back that goes up against the back of the seats so that I can fold down a section of the rear seat back and the mat can fall flat. When I do fold both rear seat backs fully, I can separate the mats to cover the seat backs and only a small edge of carpet will be exposed. I was fortunate to find dark brown mats that matches my beige/brown interior. You can't beat the price and it provides better grip for articles in the rear.

Re: Extended Cargo Mat Available ?

I just keep another cargo liner (a waterproof one that folds up easily) in the spare tire area and lay it down over everything if I'm putting the seats down. It's not pretty, but it works.

Re: Extended Cargo Mat Available ?

Thanks Guys ! Might take a run down to Home Depot later to see what they've got.

Meanwhile I found this from Weathertech:

Not sure how it will look cut to a rectangular size but could be worth a shot.

And this $16 beauty from Amazon:

Finally, I'm waiting for info from these guys:

The truck liner description sounds like it might be the same weight as the Mopar cargo mat.

One of these is bound to work.....
