RRidge / Quadratec Cargo Liner WARNING FOR 2-DOOR JK

The cargo liner doesn't work well as-is for the 2-door JK. Read on and check out the pics. My JK is 2010, so maybe it works for prior years but I doubt it.

The cargo liner for the 2-door JK requires trimming around the floor seat connections and optional subwoofer.

Even if you have removed the rear seat permanently, as I have, the forward two seat connection loops stick up above the floor, so you still need to trim the liner if you want it to lay flat.

The liner has convenient cut-out lines where you are supposed to trim with a utility knife. No problem so far. I'll just cut out the two sections for the forward seat connection loops and I'll be good to go...

Um, not exactly. THE CUT-OUTS ARE MARKED IN THE WRONG PLACE! Not only is it ugly, but the liner still rests up on the floor loops and doesn't lay flat. More trimming is needed.

Here are pictures:

Nice fit overall





Why trimming is necessary


Here's what an outline looks like. This one is for the rearward of the backseat cutouts, but you get the idea. It's a "cut on the line" sort of thing.


Here are the cut-outs


And, here are the results









I like the product overall. It's heavy, fits well, etc. I think I'll call Quadratec and see if I can expand the holes on this one and still return it. Once I get the holes the way I like them, I can use this one as a template on the new one, and send this one back. Or hopefully they'll just tell me to throw this one away.

Thanks for the heads up. Do you have a picture of the liner installed from further away to see the whole thing?

Yep, here you go... I think it would work great for a 4-door. The 4-door doesn't have any protruding floor loops where this liner goes. I think they were lazy with the hole placement because the instructions say that if you don't have a rear seat, you can skip the trimming. But then the liner would rest on the tops of those loops. I tried that and it was really poor. And the loops are nice for tie-downs, so cutting them out makes sense.

In this picture, you can see that the front edge is buckled. That's because it's resting halfway up the loops on both sides because of the improper hole placement.

Thanks for the pic. The wife has the two door. The four door cargo liner works well...I just had to cut out the speaker portion. The backseat still goes in with the liner installed, correct?

Yes, the backseat still goes in with the liner. You have to cut out the rearward set of holes for where the seat attaches to the floor. Those mounting spots are recessed into the floor, so you'd only want to cut those out if you plan to use the back seat.

Those spots are pictured above in the "as easy as cutting on the line" picture.

Overall I'm very mixed about this for the 2-door. I guess if I can get the cut-out to work, it's ok. But I'm frustrated that I even have to cut anything, and no matter how careful I am with the cut, it's still probably going to look hacked. I spent 40 minutes doing these two holes and I don't think they look very good, even if they were in the right place.

It looks fine...I think. They should have manufactured a lip around the holes so that fluids won't leak. Oh well I guess.

Thanks. I guess I'll order another one, get those holes to work, and then worry about the return of this one. They're not that expensive so even if it's a total bust it's not the end of the world. I just wanted to post this so people could see that the forward holes are not marked in the right place, and they might be able to use my pictures to figure out how they want to cut their holes, if at all.

I'm also going to consider other brands, or maybe another solution. I love the front matching ones, for what it's worth.

Good luck.

We have the front matching ones. They aren't a perfect fit either but they get the job done.

I think that those spots that were cut out should have just been molded to fit over the hoops so that the liner will hold spills and such. Anyhow, if it were me I would send it back and get my money back. I think that they definitely know about the holes being off center but since they had a whole batch made like that they decided to let the customer worry about it. I’m sure you’re not the first to complain.
Thanks for the heads up. It will save some people the disappointment that you experienced.

Great write up and photos. Have the same issue with mine. Just called my dealer and they are going to order another one (got it with the Mopar bucks). As suggested, I'll use the old one as a templete to cut the holes in the correct space.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been thinking about a cargo liner for the back of our JK (with the back seat removed) and have been wondering how it would fit. Great write up and pics. Hopefully Quadratec will take care of you.

I installed mine yesterday in my 07 Rubicon, no issues with floor loops. I had to cut the portion for the subwoofer no big deal though. Very happy with purchase. I bought mine on amazon for $78 free shipping, I saw some today for $63 + SH.

I had these mats and loved them. I have a 4-dr but it is still the same item. I don't understand why they don't have a lip on them to stop drainage.
That said, If you have a 2-dr, get it Line-x'd. They will go by sections as opposed to the whole vehicle.
