Coming Soon: Full Husky Floor Liner Reviews
 
Hey folks! I couldn't decide which style of floor liner I wanted, so with the awesome power of Amazon's return policy, I ordered both the Husky X-act Contour and the WeatherBeater Floor Liners for the front and the back. I ordered yesterday with Amazon Prime and will have them here tomorrow (I love Amazon Prime!). I know a lot of people are unsure when it comes to purchasing one of these so I plan on doing a full picture or video comparison review.

Husky X-act Contour

Husky WeatherBeater

I did some research and ended up ordering the mopar cargo liner for the rear and will also include that in my review. That wasn't offered with Prime shipping so I won't get that until a later date.

Cargo Area Tray, Molded - 82212085 | Mopar

I would have ordered the mopar brand front liners and the weathertech as well, but they weren't shipped and sold by Amazon so I would not have been able to return them as easily and would have probably had to pay a fee. It also looks like you are forced to buy the front and back seat Mopar floor liners and from the pictures I have seen and the reviews I have read, the back seat floor liners just don't have the proper coverage. The front mopar liners look like they would do the job and I like that they say Grand Cherokee on them. If I can get my hands on a set, I will do a review for them too.

Stay tuned!

I have the Husky X-act Contour in mine and they are great. Nice rubber durable feel. Not plastic junk.

I was on the fence for these as well as WeatherTech and Rugged Ridge ones. Pulled the trigger on the Weather Tech. Purchased from AutoAnything, mainly due to their customer service and a very decent price. Should be here Tuesday and I will do same.

I ended up with the Husky X-act and couldn't be happier. They have a really great fit and made it through this crazy winter we had

Much has been written here on the topic. Most people love the MOPAR cargo mat, including me. I used the MOPAR slush mats for 2 years... read about the new Husky X-Act contour here... floor liner coverage with slush mat material and carpet hooks are covered. I ordered them this winter and they are much better coverage than MOPAR... a great invention. MOPAR slush mats are in the corner of the garage.

Well I got the 2 different Husky liners in the mail yesterday and I am torn between them. I took a bunch of pictures and am working on a comparison review now.

Had the classic Weatherbeaters in my '02 JGC Limited for 11 years. Wore like iron buy the edges WILL curl inward at about 4 yrs and look bad but stilil 100% functional. There is no better "trough" for the soup than these, period. They lack upding tread to keep heels and pant cuffs out of the melted snow soup. They have the best dead and gas pedal coverage.

Because of the above I opted for the X-Act Contours with the new JGC. They have the upding tread to give my heels and cuffs a chance in the winter and are an acceptable trough to hold the soup but are not quite as good at that as the classics. Love the soft rubber. They have acceptable dead and gas pedal coverage. Had them 3 months and love so far, only time will tell.

I also like how there's no gawdy plastic logo like the Weathertechs and Rugged Ridge.

One thing I really dislike about the X-Act Contours is how they have a lip that hangs over the edge and covers the Jeep plate on the door. Did that bother you at all?

The lip is an advantage as far as doing what they are designed to do. Works great.

This is my take on the differences between the X-act Contours and the original Husky Weatherbeaters. First let me say I've owned both for my 2012 WK2 Summit.

The X-Act contours are the better of the two liners from Husky. Of course they cost more, but in this instance you get what you pay for! For the record the soft rubber compound construction of the X-Act contours is superior to the slippery when wet original Husky liners, as well as the slippery when wet Weathertech liners (Without the troublesome liquid leaking Weathertech holes for footwell mounting hooks!). The deep groove tread design of the X-Act contours is excellent but I will say the coverage of the X-Act contours is NOT as good as the original Husky Weatherbeater liners. The dead pedal area doesn't rise as high as it does with the original Husky Weatherbeaters and the trays are slighty smaller as they rise up the footwell area on both the drivers and passenger sides. The rear X-Act contour footwell liner is also just slightly smaller towards the rear door sill areas and over the middle hump than the original Husky Weatherbeater rear liner. Over time the hard plastic original Husky Weatherbeaters and the hard plastic Weathertechs will curl over/inward at the edges reducing footwell carpet protection. This will not happen with the soft rubbery X-Act contours as they do lay flat and stay that way over time. The molded lip that extends into the front door sills work as designed, stays flat, and are a nice feature the original Husky Weatherbeaters didn't have. These are the best winter/bad weather liners I've owned and I've tried all the top brands, I just wish they had that little bit extra carpet coverage the original Husky Weatherbeaters have!

As a side note for summer/good weather carpeted liners the carpeted Catch-All liners were the best I've ever owned. Had then in my WJ Jeep, as they were available in the OEM Mopar accessories catalog.
Why is it that Catch-All doesn't make these or any other molded carpeted liners for ANY 2011+ WK2 Jeep??

Just an addition to above- the dead pedal coverage on the Husky X-Act Contour is greater than the same on the MOPAR slush mat.
