About the Weather Techs; they are made in the USA.

I have them in my Jeep and my wife’s car and really like them. IMO, a great product for a reasonable cost. Always find it kind of ironic that someone will drop $40K for an American icon like the Jeep and then throw Chinese mats in it because they are $100 cheaper, just saying...

The company works hard to have great customer service and the owner of the company seems to care about keeping manufacturing jobs here in the U.S. For those of us that live here in the states, I think that should mean something. Read up on it; wish more companies had this dedication to manufacturing quality products. Just my 2 cents worth

I didn't buy Mopar because they are $100 cheaper, I bought them because the WT in my other car are crap. I never complained about the price of the WT's. Just the fit, feel, and quality, which were all way below expectations. YMMV.

I bought Mopars because they were cheaper. I have also noticed since buying them that a friends Pilot has the Weather Techs, and they are starting to food down a little. At least on the passenger side. Not terribly, but a little.

I'm still not sure which I think are better. The WT seem to cover a little more than the Mopars. What I think I'd really like are the Huskyliners.

I bought the Mopar mats on Ebay and just put them in last week. Overall I am very happy with them, wish they were a bit thicker, but they do the job fairly well. I bought the GMC mats for my wifes Acadia and they are a much better quality mat, extremely thick, and heavy duty and they cover more of the floor, I was surprised that Jeep made them so thin, but they do a pretty good job overall. The weathertech mats look very nice, I just cant see spending that money on floor mats.

I have an issue with my Mopar mats. The passenger side curled up and has never actually laid right on the floor. I went to the dealer to have them warrantied, so I will see what happpens. Waiting on the dealers response.

Also, the passenger side mat is the only one I have issue with. The driverside and the back is perfect. For $140 you can get the whole kit including the cargo mat.

I was pleasantly surpirsed to get a call from my dealer that Jeep is warrantying the mats. I am stopping by for a whole new set of mats today.

I purchased the Weathertechs from my Jeep dealer parts department at a good discount ($149 for the fronts and middle, and $99 for the cargo mat). They recommended them over the Mopar mats.

I have the Jeep Logos on mine, and I made a dead-pedal cover from a rubber/plastic stair-tred cover (the only reason I was considering the Husky mats was dead-pedal area coverage, now a non-issue). Here are some photos I snapped this afternoon, I apologize for the dirty exterior, as we have some sloppy weather with snow on and off the past week:
I have been wanting the Weathertechs for my jeep but I don't like the logo. I'm interested if anyone know who carries the ones with the jeep logo !

Good idea on the dead pedal cover. My like the Mopar ones, but the short dead pedal coverage leaves some carpet open to where my foot rests. I might try to make something similar to slip in behind the Mopar mat like you did. Where is a good place to buy that rubber/plastic stair-tred cover material?

Ive owned lots of vehicles and always get a set of rubber slush mats. I picked up a set of front and rear mopar mats and they are the best product of any of them. I love them! I drive GSA Tahoes at work and we have weathertech mats. They always curl up and look like crap. Mopars are the way to go. I gave $90 at the dealer for F/R. Im sure ebay can be had cheaper.

Driver side. I have they cargo bay too but its in the other car until I get the Jeep in.However since I only paid 180 for fronts and cargo, seeing all the Mopar recomendations I may have to go Mopar.

I ordered the full Weathertechs yesterday because 1. Always been happy with them, and 2. Wanted tan for my frost/beige interior.

The weathertechs I got are perfect. They fit perfect. They're stiff. The coverage exceeds mopar's coverage. I must be a complete idiot.
