Well, it arrived last Wednesday while I was away, so that was about 10 days shipped to Canada and through Customs. Not too bad, from my previous experience getting stuff from South of the border, and from East to West. First pic is of how it came shipped. image-3017123618.jpg Second one shows how the pieces laid out at room temp., after about 10 minutes out of the box. Was unaware that it came with a free cat, - guess we'll keep her. image-4087113196.jpg Final photo is assembled after trying to "counter-bend" the curls out as best I could, but still at room temp. Looks a bit ugly because the protective plastic is still on it. image-1276933883.jpg We're getting a blast of snow and cold right now, so may be a few days before I can try it in the GC. Impressions so far,
- the curling up is kind of a pain to deal with, and hopefully that will get better over time and with a bit of warmer outside temps. - this stuff seems very tough, which will be great when putting rocks and Firewood in the back, but also makes it pretty tough to make the 90 degree bends on the marked bend lines. I don't think the bends are lighter (or "indented", - if that makes sense?) to make the bends easier, - it appears the plastic has just been pre-bent when made, then flattened back out and rolled up for shipping. - can't say this is the "prettiest" piece of manufacturing I've seen, but I think it will serve my purposes nicely. Again, the material looks very tough. The rubber grip matts are nothing special, but would certainly serve the purpose of giving grip,to the otherwise very slippery ridged plastic. You could get the same effect by buying any kind of rubberized matting to fit in. - my opinion, - if you're looking for the finish quality of Husky, WeatherTech, Mopar, etc..., you will be disappointed, I think, but if protecting the floor and sides of the Cargo area is you're end-goal, I think it will do the job nicely. I will try to add to my observations once I can get it in the Jeep! Hope this helps others that are considering purchase of one of these.

Thanks! Keep us updated when you get installed. Your initial impressions are about what I was expecting. Wish all manufacturers of mats would use boxes that fit the mat instead of rolling. I would pay extra for shipping if they would. I ship alot for my business and the cost wouldnt be much more. Its mostly based on weight.

Re: US Trunk Liners Reviews... anybody have one?

Have you checked out the Canvasback? If total coverage is what you're looking for, you really can't beat it. My dog travels with me occasionally and it does a great job of keeping the hair out of the carpet. A quick Vacuum takes care of any mess in the back and it's waterproof. Best part is it covers the back seats so when fold the seats down, hit home depot or go camping - the entire area is covered. It's also the only thing I came across that still easily allows access to the spare tire compartment.

Only con is that it's def a more expensive option.

Check out the pics on their site. If anyone wants, I can post different pictures of it installed.

I'd be interested in seeing a few more pictures. I just went KZ and want to get something ordered soon...I'm leaning towards the Husky X-Acts for front/rear seats but having trouble deciding what I want for the cargo liner....Both the Canvasback and US Truck Liners looks good.

For all of you that were interested, here are a few pics of the liner installed in the JGC Overland. Sorry for the poor quality, - but hope it gives you an idea. I did not have any of the rubber matting in for these pictures.

Re: US Trunk Liners Reviews... anybody have one?

Really like the Husky X-act fit. Of all the laser fit mats on the market, these are the most rubber like. The others are all more plastic like. For the cargo mat, I really like the Mopar. It is really a heavy duty rubber, and things will not slide around on it. It does not go up the sides, but there is so much tread in the liner that I am guessing it would hold almost a gallon of spilled fluid. Did not like the liners with a lip, because every time I load something in the back, I don't want to have to contend with the mat folding back due to hitting the lip.
Now I just need my Jeep to put it in. Should be here in less than 2 weeks. Mats have been in the garage for over a month.

Re: US Trunk Liners Reviews... anybody have one?

The US Trunk Liner fits like a glove; perfect for the slushy/dirty days; can fire the wheelchair in the back now w/out having to wipe the wheels off in a blizzard. I am suitably impressed and would recommend to anyone w/dogs, wheelchairs, walkers and anydirty/wet loads. Toss it all in the back w/out worries about busting the sub woofer and getting the upholstery dirty.

Re: US Trunk Liners Reviews... anybody have one?

Thanks for the pics and opinions guys -- does the liner go higher than the top of the rear seats, or is it flush/slightly below? Also, how bad does it slide around/sit on the chrome bars in the cargo area?

In the "Back Seat Up" pic above, you can see it's about even with the top of the seats, with only the headrests exposed. I have not actually driven with mine, so I can't speak to the sliding around question. If it did, I think a few well placed pieces of Velcro loop would solve that. It is flexible enogh that it definitely sits on the carpet in several places.

Re: US Trunk Liners Reviews... anybody have one?

For those of you with the US Truck liner... I am considering getting it without the subwoofer hole cut out... do you think it affects the sound much? Also worried it would cut off air supply and the sub could overheat.... am I being too cautious?
