A couple unboxed pics... at first glance the spots that need to be cut/trimmed (for example for the rear Seat Belts, etc) don't seem to be marked real well on the back side of cargo mat, but I didn't look super close.

Ah, I see what they did on the wheel well pieces. They just split the hole where the seat belt bolts up. The front is two pieces, so that's probably how they handled the removal from the center console. I like the rubber backing! Hopefully they stay in place ok and not slide around. They seem to be molded quite well!

Well, I've only been putzing for a little while, and maybe not quite warm enough but I can't say that I'm WOW'ed by any kind of "Perfect Fit"...

Seems even when I hold down the edges where it will eventually be velcro'ed there are still big puffy pockets where it just doesn't appear to be fitting quite right.

After a Little more time and some heat from my work lamp, and a bit of strategic trimming it looks better... I won't finish the rest until Friday or Saturday, but seems OK so far.

I was following this since I wanted to try the bedtred and was hoping you had good results. Now that you have had a chance to mess with it and let it warm up are you liking it? Would you buy it again after now installing it?

I felt the bedtred on a display at 4wd hardware and really liked it but if it fits like crap I guess regular bedliner it is.

The jeep looks great and good luck getting the bedtred finished up.

Looks like it's starting to fit pretty well after some convincing.

I'll reserve judgement until I get it finished and have a chance to run it for a while, see how well it stays in place and if with some warmer temps possibly able to do some adjustments to the areas that don't fit perfectly right this second I think it will end up being decent... I never expected that it could compete 100% with a "regular" bedliner but I expect that it will be equal to a better other carpet type replacement options.

You should have paid more attention to the review of their normal Bedrug material. It is a very nice low height quality carpet that is indestructible and will not show wear, or damage or scratches from sliding stuff over it.

I'll be pleasantly surprised if the same can be said for that crap you have in there now.

It will probably be OK for all my trips to the mall!

Got the rest of the BedTred installed this evening... I like the way it looks and fits... a couple spots needed very minor trimming, but I'm happy with it.

Blaine's already described it as "that crap", so I guess we'll just have to see how well it holds up.

Looks good! Is it carpet or rubber? The pics make it look like textured rubber.
