I had the Weathertech liners and cargo mat for the rear of my last vehicle but this time around I decided to buy the Huskey liners and cargo mat as a result of someone's suggestion on another forum and they were slightly cheaper than the Weathertechs.

The Huskey floor liners work perfectly and as well as the Weathertech ones did but I'm not too impressed with their cargo mat as the fit is not great.

Was that front/rear only or front/rear/cargo area?

Front, rear, and cargo area. We go camping in the warmer months and I want to protect as much of the carpet as I can.

I have weathertechs in my other vehicle and hate them. Hard plastic feels cheap under my feet. When dirty, the dirt doesn't go down into the grooves because there aren't any...heels always have loose dirt under them.

Went with slush mats and like them. Do not cover as well as weather tech but work good enough for me!

i've had weathertech's in all of my jeeps, and I wouldn't trade them for any other mat. I compared them to huskyliners in my bro's truck, and the weathertechs are much higher quality in my opinion. They're thicker and more rigid, but that's just my preference. I hate stepping on the sides of the flimsy husky liners and it bending under my foot, so I waited until WT released them for the WK2.

I don't have any experience with the mopar ones, though. I just tend to stay away from OEM accessories b/c they tend to be wayyyyy over priced. If you do go with slushmats, there is a vendor in the display that's offering the mopar slush mats at a good discount .. might save ya some dough.

The WeatherTech mats and cargo liner are now installed. The overall fit is quite good but the driver's mat initially stuck out a bit near the gas pedal which was a bit concerning. Seems like it's OK now that the mat has had a chance to seat in the spot.

The passenger front mat had a hole for a hook but there is no hook there. Didn't seem to affect the fit or the stability.

Main thing that I goofed up on is that I went with the gray mats instead of the tan ones...and with the Graystone interior the carpet is actually more of a tan. The gray does match/complement the seat color pretty well so it isn't all bad, and it blends in much better than the black would have. It just isn't a color match to the carpet.

I noticed this, too. The "hole" is kind of raised so it doesn't allow any excess water or slush down to the carpet. I was actually really suprised that Jeep didn't put a hook on the passenger side to secure the floor mats. I'm 99% sure that my JK and TJ had them.

Oh well.

My Laredo has the plastic hook on the passenger side.

I had the Weathertech mats in my 2008 WK and they were fantastic! Perfect fit too! Only advice I would offer is to those who live in a winter/snowy climate. The Weathertech mats do not have grooves to keep the water away from shoes or slacks when driving to and from work.
Other than that, nothing but good things to say.
Cheers,

Weird. Maybe mine was one of the earlier models and they added that later. Mine's a Laredo X (26).

My Laredo X has an early delivery date so I think that's what happened.

The mopar mats are rubber and the Weather Tech mats are a softer plastic so I would presume no.

Besides, it's a Jeep. What do we care about stinking chrome.
