Weathertech or Mopar All Season Mats?

Any opinions on the subject? The Weathertech mats seem to be a little more pricey than the Mopar mats, anyone have experience with both and is it worth the extra $$ for Weathertech?? Any other brands I should consider?

Thanks!

I have the mopar front and rear slush mats with the cargo mat, they are good quality and the fit is perfect. I like that the front mats cover quite a bit of the floor, only problem is that they are not really a tray type, meaning that snow and water will run off of them if there is a lot of it. Rear mat is nice, it covers the entire back seat area with a Jeep logo on it, the cargo mat fits very nice as well, with cutouts to access the tie downs.

I think you can get the Mopar front, back, and cargo for about $150 maybe less if you shop around. The weathertech run about $270 for the same pieces. I havent been able to find them cheaper.

The Mopar mats look good, but from what I'm seeing, the Wheather Tech mats looks like they'll do a better job of containing any mess with how high they appear to rise around the edges. Plus the Weather Tech mats don't appear to have the deep tread block design so they'll be significantly easier to clean.

When I'm reach to pick up a set I think I'll be leaning toward the Weather Tech mats.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

I don't think they are to expensive, mine came with the All Waether Capability Group, so I did not purchase them after market. I think I have seen them for around $150-$175 for everything.

I think I paid $70 on fleabay for the front and rear Mopar mats without the cargo mat. They look fantastic and handle all of the crap you can throw at them. I really don't see the point in paying extra for the Weathertech...

Look at how they're designed in relation to the Mopar mats and you'll see they'll do a better job keeping your carpet cleaner. They also rise up higher on the sides and appear to do a better job of using the bottom as a catch basin.

Don't get me wrong, the Mopar slush mats look cool, but I don't see them doing as good of a job protecting the carpeting. When you've already spent around $40k for a vehicle, I don't see the big deal spending a little extra $$$$ on something to protect it. Just my

Some how I don't see as much slop getting on the carpet with the Weather Tech mats.

I guess it's all on how you view it. The most mine ever sees is snow and rain. The amount that I can throw at the floor mats will never require the Weather Tech.

In that respect I'm no different than you.

What turns me off to the Mopar mats is they appear to not rise up on the sides to protect the carpet near the door sill, trans tunnel or by the gas pedal. I had a set of the Mopar mats for my JKU, they were adequate, but nothing to write home about since they didn't completely protect the carpeting.

Beyond that, I thinkthe soft rubber compound and the tread block type design are going to make a pain in the arse to clean compared to the Weather Tech design IMO.

No big deal, to each their own.

The opposite about cleaning is true for me. I've been using the Husky's in my truck for a year and they are a pain in the butt to remove for cleaning - in fact I had to put a rubber mat on top of them and then could easily remove the rubber mat and shake it out. Sounds like the Mopars would be a lot easier to remove and clean since they are rubber instead of stiff plastic, so I'll only have to buy one set, and at half price too!

I ordered the black Weathertech for the wife’s Limited (Black carpet) and they ROCK. Fit is perfect. I was afraid they were going to be slick due to the harder plastic look but they are not, grips your boot or shoe nice. So impressed I ordered a set for my daughters 2009 WK.
I did not like the Tread look of the Mopar mats
