For all you 4 door peeps out there....

I'm just curious, does anyone else have problem with their carpet in the back raising at highway speeds while the doors are off? has anyone glued it? or found a way to attach it? I usually have to throw the floor mats in the back so i dont lose it as i have a duster. that rush of driving with almost everything off is awesome, u just wonder what others think when u blow past them and they see my carpet is almost as high as the seat.

I think of it as my super-hero cape.

I just toss the floor mats in the cargo area. That's it. Some velcro on the bottom of the mat might would work.

Are you saying carpet or floor mats flying?

well the carpet comes up enough that the floor mats will take off if not tended to. velcro might work, just dont think it would hold.

I use these cheap little spring clamps I bought at harbor freight to hold them in. The clips are mostly under the back seat so you hardly notice.

I'll look at mine in the morning to see why mine don't fly

I have the Quadratec Slush Mat in the rear and even though it's heavy, it flies up. The carpet does not.

Same here. I haven't had any problems with completely losing it, but it always flys up. I was thinking something like heavy duty velcro, just haven't tried it yet.

From a couple of earlier posts (mine haven't budged since I did this):

Here's a tip for the Quadratec liners in the backseat area: With your top and doors off, they have a tendency to wanna lift off and take flight when you're on the freeway. Buy a package of 4"x2" industrial strength velcro strips, then stick one on the tail end of one (or both) of your seat rails, and one on the bottom of your liners. This will keep em from trying to fly.

Cool, Glad others have seen it. Like I said, i really dont care about the mats, but sounds like some heavy duty velcro between the body and the underside of the carpet might do the trick. I havent sank the thing in a mud pile yet, so i should be ok.

Welllll.....I pulled my carpet. So no worries. I have seen folks use the spring clips to keep them down. There is enough plastic on the edges to slap a clip or a bit of velcro to.
