I should be picking up my new '13 4dr today and I was wondering about floor/cargo liners for it. I've always had them other vehicles (Tahoe, Silverado, etc.) and loved them.
I've done a search and read a 7 page thread about them. I like the looks of the quadratec ones, plus I like the one piece back seat liner. But I saw that on the driver's side they don't go up and behind the accelerator (it's cut out). I've always had Husky liners and they always ran up behind it. How big of deal is this to most? Is there another quality brand that people like that does go up behind the accelerator? I think I saw where the weathertech liners do, but they don't seam to have as big of "lip" around the edge as the quadratec or Husky.
Also, I think I read where some had questioned the quadratec rear cargo liner as far as durability/quality.
Can ya'll provide some input please? Thanks a bunch.
I use Weathertech for the fronts (because of the same reasons you mention), Quadratec in the back (because I like the cool tread pattern), and the standard cargo liner that came with the Jeep (fabric side down).
Of course now that's getting nicer out, I'll probably put the stock mats back in the front, and only use the Weathertech's as necessary.
I have the quadratec in my '13 JKU, and I really like them. My wife hates them.
There are two problems for her. We go to the beach 5 or 6 times a week (her and the boys during the week while I am at work) and our beach is mostly coquina (tiny crushed shells) and sand. The "treads" are too deep for my wife to easily vacuum out the sand. So she takes them out every day and on the front that's gonna soon pull out the anchor points from the Jeep. Second, since the rear ones are connected, it's difficult to pull them out without spilling sand (did I mention 6 and 9 yr old boys track in a LOT of sand?). You have to fold them in half front to back, to clear the rear seat legs and then pull them out one door or the other.
So, the front and rear are going back in exchange for WeatherTechs since they can be easily vacuumed. The rear cargo I am keeping because a 100 pound Labradoodle is a wet sandy mess after going insane chasing gulls and terns and swimming out after them when they fly over water. It sildes out easily for washing off.
I had the Mopar slush mats and did not like them. They did not cover enough of the carpet. I got the Weathertech floor liners for the front and will probably get the ones for the back also. I have the factory Jeep rear cargo liner for the very back and its just fine. The Weathertech liners fit the best and cover the most amount of carpet.

I had Qtec Liners in my TJ and theyy were the first thing I added to my new JK. I went with front and back, and just use carpet side OEM liner in cargo compartment. Could not be happier with look/performance.
Yes, a tiny bit of debris gets behind the gas pedal, but nothing worth choosing another brand (IMHO) especialy when you considder that the liner is designed specifically so as to reduce chances of accellorator interference. This is a good safety measure
They look rugged and when dirty, I just hose them down. I can see how the back seat liners would be difficult to get out as mentoned by a previous poster but I have no kids and generrally infrequent backseat riders (adult friends). Each has complimented the floor liners. Another possible solution to the back seat liner dilema would be to vac them before removing for the hose-down.
Thse liners are great!

I do like my QTech- but at the same time think a lesser-depth tread might be just as good. I am sure the QTechs are better for rain, snow, slush. But like JaxPilot my issue is sand or dirt. Its a pain to clean out between the heavy tread. Also its easy to get a shoe stuck between the treads.
If I did over I'd order Weathertech for in front of seats- but still QTech in the back.
I ended up getting Husky original design liner for the front and rear seats. I have used them in the past in other vehicles and have always been happy with them.
I did not order a rear liner yet though. I was considering the canvas back one. Only thing I noticed on it is that it doesn't over the rear most corners that have factory plastic. I would like that area covered as well to prevent getting it all scratched up from putting things in and out.
