What type of material is on them and how do you clean them? One of the things I really like about mine is that they are really easy to clean up. Much better than the WeatherTec's I had in my last truck.

I've had the full set of Quadratec in my 09 JKU for 3 days now. I know that's not long but I love the fit and definitely like them more than the stock mats.

Everyday dirt and grime from around the city and colorado mountain mud. I've tried several cleaners, and scrub the mats with a bathtub scrubber. Getting between all the grooves is a PITA. Every time I'm done and they dry, there is still some brown residue. I've never had that problem with Husky mats; their lack of deep grooves makes them easy to clean. I don't need the grooves to clean my shoes, I just need a mat to hold the mud, that I can easily clean out. Thats not Quadratec.

I just purchased the full set of Quadratecs. The fit is perfect and they look nice. Was surprised at their lite weight. Can give you a better rating next spring.

There is another thread saying that the QT rear seat mat floats with the top and doors off on the highway.

I was planning on picking up a set of these but am trying to work out the validity and severity of this issue first.

This. I have them and LOVE them. Wouldn't even think of a different liner after having these.

Check out this photo thread I did the day I got mine.

And as for the "bowed up a bit" part I mentioned in there, it laid flat after a couple hours. Just needed to be out of the box and in the Jeep.

I'm able to clean my out easily with just a hose and some car wash soap.

I like the deeper grooves for the snow, slush, and water so it doesn't get on the carpets.

Which would be best against heel wear? I always seem to wear a hole through my mats from the heels on my boots.

I'm not familiar with the Husky Liners, but I can tell you that both the Weathertech and Quadratec mats are extremely hard and durable. I can't see a boot heel wearing through them. That being said, I stand by my earlier post about the Weathertech mats having the best fit, and won't allow any spillover onto your carpet.

X2 on the weather techs. I was thinking about the quadratechs, as I have a set in my TJ. The sides start to bow in after awhile though. I wasn't too keen on the cut out on the driver side of the new ones for the JK. Saw a set of weather techs on craigslist for a JKU. paid the guy $75 for the full set. Great fit and coverage. Now that I have them, I would have no problem paying full price for them.

I feel like this thread is equally WT to QT unlike others where one side clearly wins out. For example I think it's fair to say that duratracs take take the cake throughout this forum in more or less every tire comparison. Anyway, it would be interesting to hear from some others that have had both. I appreciate the loyalty to a brand but loyalty doesn't always lead to the most informative review.

Taking my vendor hat off.

I had a set of these in my JK and they didn't last very long. The part when I circled bent inwards from my shoes constantly landing on that side part. Also the passenger side few out once when I had the doors off

Quadratech floorliners

I recently bought the combo set of the "New Quadratech" floor liners. The front and 2nd row are very nice and can tell they have improved. The cargo liner they sent me though does not look or feel the same as the front and 2nd row though. Different texture, feel, thickness and tread depth isn't as deep either. I complained about the obvious difference in appearence and feel that the cargo liner is compared to the front rows, but they were adament that that was the only cargo liner they have. Any one else notice this?

I've had both and take Quadratec over WT. Easier to clean, great fit, lifetime warranty, deep groves so your feet are not sitting in water or mud.

That's what happened to mine, eventually the left side will fold over all the way.

I just bought some Huskys and I like them. I hope mine don't do that. What about using double sided tape to pin down the left side?

I just got my Quadratec liners for the rear of my 2-door, and am very happy with the fit and quality. Also, I am not sure about the others, but the Quadratec's are Made In The USA!!

I noticed this as well, it's not that huge of a deal that I plan on turning it. But it does bug me a bit it's not the same as the other mats.

Same thing happened with 2 different sets on our '07. I got with Steve Bower of Husky, the engineering manager, back in '07 and he said they redesigned them and sent me a set of the new ones. They did the same thing. I checked them out last year and noticed they hadn't changed so I also jumped ship.

I switched to the WeatherTech DigitalFit on our '12 and after a year they're still tight against the sill.

I loved the Huskyliners in my '97 Ranger but you couldn't give me a set to use in a JK.

Also, the WeatherTech are not cut out around gas pedal. At least, not on mine.

Contacted CS about my issue. Hopefully they don't ask me to send them back on my dime, but I have a feeling they will.
