Re: Cargo Mats

I have had 8-10 sets of weathertech liners and a few sets of Husky liners as well. You will not be disappointed with the weathertech liners, they are the absolute best IMHO!

Re: Ventilated seats question?

I would be super pissed if this is the case. The ventilated seats really help with the "swamp-ass." :D However, I highly doubt this is the case. I am sure they come with the ventilated seats as well.
