jeepjeepster Ive read of some complaining about the little decal being riveted in and the rivets will leave rust on the carpet. Mine was just a sticker but the two holes were still there for the rivets. After a week of snow, I found the carpet soaked under the mats... Water was going through the holes where the rivets would normally be... I filled the holes up with RTV, seems to be working good for now.

Also, those are made for the 96+ ZJ's with the dead pedal. Thats why it has that cutout on the left.

speedbrake I bought the Rugged Ridge set sometime last year. It did take about 4-5 months for them to show up. Fit is good, near custom. You're better off ditching the OE carpet mats due to the molded fit nature of these. They're deep and can hold a bunch of water/gravel/etc. Backseat mat is one piece and doesn't move. Front driver's tends to slide forward a bit over time, probably due to my feet pushing it fwd. Front pax mat hasn't moved an inch. They also make a rear cargo area mat as well. It seems that for the ZJ, Quadratec and Rugged Ridge mats are identical, probably made in the same Chinese factory with just different branding badges.

Hoosierman For what it's worth, I had Weathertechs in an '04 Mustang and bought some for my dad's '14 Mustang a few Christmases back. I was always very pleased with the quality of them.

blueribb 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) Rugged Ridge All Terrain Floor Liner, Front (Black) - DMC-12920.26 (front pair only)

The above is Out of Stock everywhere but apparently still being made. I ordered a pair for $84.99 with free shipping* from 4wd.com
The manufacturer confirmed they DO have the retention hook hole. They are available with or without the JEEP logo.

*You may have to call to get free shipping since the cart will add shipping even though it's advertised as "qualifies for Free Shipping"

I know its stupid. They do creep up if its not held in place. Thanks to my OCD I never see anything come through that hole and i clean my WJ Overland once a year lol. Since december its only seen 3000 kms though, almost due for an oil change lol.

I'm pretty sure there is a cap that snaps on, covering the hole.

KiloWatts I have the weather tech mats. They do not have a retention hole, but my 96 doesn't have the hook either. They are very nice mats though.

I only want the front 2 mats and they said I should fill out a service ticket to request price and availability for the front 2 mats (part numbers 12901.55 and 12901.56).

They want $150 for the 4 piece set which is too much to pay for just the fronts since I won't be using the rears.
those floor liners do not even move in my jeep which no longer has the hook thing in the floor. I think you're overthinking it. It fits in there like a glove, no movement.

Also, Amazon use to just sell the fronts separate. Not sure now.

Picture is a generic one but buy Rugged Ridge. $149.99 for the two front and the back seat one. What I have, fit perfect.
