I have had weather tech mats and floor liners in my last few vehicles. They are far superior to ANY brand of oem mat I've seen. Go weather tech, you won't be disappointed.

Finally got the Weather Tech Mats, and the quality was definitely worth the cost. The fit is perfect.

I bought the husky liners for my last vehicle and loved how they contained all the mud, dirt, snow, water, etc. I live in the country so my feet are constantly muddy and or covered in snow during the winter. .. They are on my "to buy" list... and they are a lot cheaper than the weather techs. I don't like the look of the mopars because I do live in an area where I need more coverage.

I bought the mopar mats for $85. They fit nicely. I am driving from home to office and around city w/family. Don't need the $300 mats, though I am sure they are nice.

Bought the black WeatherTech mats for both rows, and rear cargo liner. First time buying the brand because of the higher cost, but when I just spent $43000 I want the best. They are the way to go, FOR SURE! Easy to take right out and wipe off. Def spend the extra money and go with them.

Weather tech! I bought the slush mats at first and quickly returned them due to poor coverage. The weather tech have a stupid logo, but you never notice it once you are in the jeep, and the protection can't be beat.

I got the weathertechs as well. The logo comes off very easily if you don't like it

Yup...the logo came off on our driver's front mat on its own after a few months of use.

Old thread, but thought I'd chime in...

I have Weatherteck mats in my wifes Yukon XL Denali (all three rows plus cargo). It was a $400 investment, and I hate them. The plastic is super hard which ruins the nice interior feel of these expensive automobiles. And the fit is good, but only if they stay in place (which they never do). They are basically plastic trays, and as such they slide around. I have gripes with all front, middle, and cargo areas:

Front: Mats slide around The walls don't stay tight against the carpet so junk can slide down behind the mats. Also, they have warped on the side by the kick panels.



Middle: These mats are deep, which some say is nice in case you spill. But how much are you planning on spilling. The walls of these mats basically create a tripping hazard for small kids. Also, they leave a lot of easly opening for debris to get under there.







Cargo: Again the walls... the mat slides around by an inch or so side-to-side. Then something get's put on top of that wall, pinching it down. Then you can't make the wall sit verticle anymore.



Overall, the mats fit good, but it's worthless if they don't stay in place. And Weathertech are very lightweight (they are light, hard plastic, not heavy rubber like other mats). So when they move (and they will), the walls don't protect anything... worse they become a tripping hazzard or they get bent down anc won't go back.

I have had Weathertech for about 14 months, and they are terrible. I will never buy from them again.

For my WK2 I'm going with OEM slush mats.

Are those the mats or the floor liners?
Mine (floor liners - not mats) fit perfectly and have none of the issues you point out.
Mats are more of a "universal fit" while floor liners are made for a specific vehicle.

They are the floor liners... The ones Weathertech advertises as laser cut for precision fit.

In reality they are nothing more than hard plastic trays.

I seriously don't understand what all the hype is about. They don't perform as advertised and they look like crap

I bought the mopar ones. I like the way they look. We haven't had a good snow yet so performance wise I can't comment.
