Floor Mat Question

So I am a little disappointed in the Mopar slush mats that cost $95. The drivers one just does not cover as much of the carpet as I would like. It seems like they could have made it go further up on the right side so it went up a little way on the tranny tunnel. So my question is could you post a pic of a better mat set that gives more carpet coverage?

Seems like the Quadratec mat is about the same width according to the pics. However the Husky molded floor liner seems to offer the widest coverage that I have seen so far.

Hmmm... Looked at the link. Wish they would actually show the liner in the vehicle they are selling it for. The pic is in a Toyota.

Does look like it is a wider mat for sure.

The husky doesn't have deep lugs so your shoes are up out of the water/mud.

I own the rugged ridge mats. They're perfect.

Except they don't cover the area under the throttle pedal.

Went to local shop and found the rugged ridge mats for 100. Took out the wallet and realized that they wanted 100 for just the front mats!! I went on eBay and found the entire set for 100. I put them in today and I HIGHLY recommend these. The back is a one piece that covers the entire rear floor and there is no carpet exposed in the front. Rugged Ridge got it right.

Here are the pics of Rugged Ridge mats. Sorry if they aren't the best. Still recovering from last night.

Here are my new Quadratecs. Again, no protection behind the accelerator pedal. They're much better than the mopar mats.

I replaced the MOPAR ones with Rugged Ridge and I love them. I think they look better than that strange tire track pattern anyways.

So far it looks like the weathertech has the best coverage especially under the accelerator pedal.

None of them are perfect. Mine came with the Mopar mats. I wouldnt waste the money to switch them out. They look fine and do the job. If there was a perfect solution I probably would make the switch but there is none at the moment.

Do the Rugged Ridge ones come with a lifetime warranty like the Quadratec ones?

Here are my weathertech's they have great coverage and seem to be very high quality, they are more expensive but they hold up for a really long time had a set in my old jeep for 14 years and they are still good

The Jeep mud pattern floor mats on Amazon are nice and they are ~$60.

Ok the weathertech coverage looks to be just what I am looking for!

I just made the switch from the MOPAR slush mats to the Husky floor liners. I really like them. They aren't as thick as the slush mats, but they have a tall "lip" all the way around which would contain water, dirt, spills, etc.. much better. They were a little pricey but they have a good fit and cool looking diamond plate pattern to them.

I got the Rugged Ridge mats and am very happy with them. I would recommend drilling out the hook hole. When I first put them in I just notched it and had a hell of a time getting them out.

Amazon has the Weathertech fronts on sale for $97 with free shipping! So I am going to grab a set.

I purchased mine from O'Riley's auto parts for $29.95. This is front only, rubber with Jeep Logo on them and they cover the complete carpet area. They are really a quality mat!
