Need reviews on Nifty Extreme slush mats

So I've gone through 2 sets of Quadratec slush mats in less than 2 months and I need to either send them back or exchange them. This time I need some feedback. I like the look of the new Nifty Extreme slush mats but Quadratec couldn't tell me anything about them.

Anyone have these and if so, how good are they?

My nifty extreme Moper slush mats are going on 3 years old. Still happy with them. And they say Jeep on them.

I've been eying those Quadratecs. I like the way they look in the pictures and they seem to have walls along the edges where the mopar ones don't.
You were not happy with them? How did you wear them out?

Didn't wear them out. The side walls collapse in which leaves about a 2" gap between the mats and the carpet so all that mud and water just runs underneath the mats. It also gets in the way of the gas pedal. I hat the doors off last weekend and got caught in the rain and the floors were soaked. I talked to Quadratec and they said that's just how they are and they are only meant to protect the floor from mud on your feet. Not the answer I was looking for.

Keep in mind that floor MATS are not the same as floor LINERS. Sounds like you want liners.

A little of both. I like the idea of the mats with edges on the high traffic areas, but I want them to have walls to keep as much muck as possible on the mat and not draining around it onto the carpet. If the edges start out well and then limp in, thats not what I want.
still I did look at the whole liner kabob and that wasn't really what I wanted either.
So if the walls cave in on the Quadratecs, I'll likely just do the Mopar ones.

This here is the exact reason I got the Mopar slush mats. The Mopars had low edges and fit the space perfectly. I thought that over time the tall edges would be problematic and I'm now convinced I was right. They have worked well for what they were made for through three winters in my jeep.
