Jeep Winter/Rubber Mats

Hi All,

Can someone post a pic of their winter/rubber mats? I'm wondering if they are worth buying to keep the winter crud off my carpets or should I buy after market ones?

Thanks

I totally disagree about using weathertech mats. I personally think the Husky Mats are the best. A laser imprint of the floor is taken and then the mats are cut to provide maximum coverage. They have the most floor coverage of any other mat I have seen and they don't have all that bulky ribbing like the weathertech ones. It's late and dark out right now but I can post pics of mine tomorrow.

I love my weathertech liners that I have in my Liberty. They fit perfectly and are very well made. They actually contain dirt/water instead of letting it leak all over the place like "mats".

I compared the weathertech liners and the husky liners for the WK2 and the weathertechs cover more and are deeper so they better contain dirt, water, etc.

I also have weather tech liners in my Honda minivan and they have done an amazing job keeping my Honda clean but they were not cheap.

I got the mopar slush mats but I probably return them as they do not cover the whole floor area. I have weathertechs in my Cadillac and while they cover better, I hate the hard plastic feel under my feet. I'm not sure what I will do now

WHen people say Husky "mats", are you really referring to mats or the liners? Just curious as they sell both.

If the photos on the Weathertech page are correct, it looks like they have holes in them where the factory hooks exist to hold the factory mats in place. My Husky Liners do not have holes, they have a large enough dimple to cover the hook, thus, no place to let water leak in.

You can always buy some of those really cheapo Walmart type universal carpet mats, place them over the mopar mats, and then when they get trashed, just trash em'. Problem solved?

There are no holes in my Weathertech liners in my Honda. They actually work very well.

Thanks for posting the pics. So are these a thick rubber or more pliable like the WeatherTec ones?
