MOPARS!!!, fit great, look great and were part of my deal (ya right). I asked for them to be thrown in and they were.

I have always had these type of mats in my trucks and the wifes Volvo.

They all seem to do the job and save rugs (esp. in the V70) I also got the full rear mat from my dealer (not included in the deal ) that I installed when I removed the rear seat (which I will never ever use)

I have the RR mats and they're great!

They hold water and dirt very well....nothing ever spills onto any other areas of the Jeep.
The RR mats are still solid after almost 1 1/2 years, no tears in the rubber from my heel.

The Mopar mats didn't look nearly as sturdy and able to keep dirt/water on the mat the way the RR mats do...

Do the Mopar slush mats fit the 2012 front and rear seats ok? Any issues with any interior changes around the seats?

I have the TreadLightly (aka RR/quadratec/etc) front and rear in my 2012 JKU. Fit perfect and love that they have a lip to hold stuff in.

I have the Rugged Ridge covers. I like them so far. I know they probably have to have that hole for the hold-down clip to avoid litigation, but I don't want a hole in my covers. I am thinking about filling the hole from the back side with some caulking. What do the rest of you think?

Mopar-mats not liners. In snow I got a nice salt ring around the edges.
Weather tech-liners but never really laid flat. Looked warped
Quadratech- just bought some for my wrangler. Only had a month but so far they are the winners. Very beefy, fit great.

Yes they do. I have a set of 3 for my 2012 JKU Ruicon. The fit/finish is great. No issues.

I had the quadratech in my 2010 Rubi. They worked great with the exception of pulling away from the sides of the floor wells in the front. Great for spilled drinks, sand and mud overall. That being said, I think Im getting the mopar one's for my 2012. I just love the tire tread design.

I have Quadratec in my 08 JKUR and have RR for my 12 JKR. As has been noted RR makes them for Quad. The RR were cheaper. I thought about the Mopar's but it said in gray only and I have a balck interior.

My Mopars are black and they were part of the purchase front and rear. They fit great, stay put and look like they will hold a lot. Nice!

Glad to hear that. Maybe the vendor I was going to order from only had gray?

If you see the pictures between the two, you can see what I'm talking about.

I have the quadratec ones with the Tread Lightly emblem and I love em!

I bought cheapies (mats, not liners) for my last Jeep and my carpets got trashed. I mean, they are rock hard and glazed like the skin of a doughnut from all the salt they use on the roads in the winter here in Wisconsin.

I bought the Quadratecs for front, rear & cargo for my 2012. I'll probably have to pour them out regularly once the snow starts falling.

"I bought the Quadratecs for front, rear & cargo for my 2012..."

I did also! A previous "Weathertech" customer, with no answers to 3-eMails, I went to Quadretec! Got the same mats as above and LOVE them. Extremely FAST service and GREAT quality!

Did go with Weathertech for the window vent shades, which I installed in minutes!

I got my Mopar tire tread mats. They are great. Good fit on 2012, deep enough to contain slush in winter, has hole to keep in ace and look cool with tore tracks. The back mat is awesome as well. Less money too. Got mine off amazon.

If you guys get snow like they did in Richmond the last couple of winters, you'll be pouring yours out too.

Just received my Mopar mats yesterday. Quality is good and they are definitely black in color. They also look really cool with the tire tread pattern. They fit perfectly on the 2012, but they are not as big as some other mats I've seen. If you plan on doing a lot of mudding (I don't), then you may want to consider going with a larger mat. These will work perfect for my uses.

The gray color is not real accurate on Mopars end. They are definitely closer to black as you should be able to see in my pics. It is personal preference though on what you want. I prefer Mopar on what I call "vanity accessories". Better for resale maybe, I dont know. I also added some factory touch up to the Jeep so that it "popped" a bit. It blended in with the tire treads before, but it seems to have gotten me alot of compliments so far.

Rugged ridge there is no point having rubber mates that don't have a lip to keep dirt, mud snow and "most" of a puddle of water in.
I have the rugged ridge pest investment, they fit so well and stay put.

That's my only beef with the Rugged Ridge (or QT/TL) liners. Sure, they do keep a lot of material in them if you need it, but the fact that the fronts bow-in on the sides (where the floor slopes under the dash) disappoints me.

I understand it's probably unavoidable, as the walls of the liner would need to flex in two directions to avoid this. I do catch my foot on it once in a while, though.

While I wouldn't spend the money to replace them, I'd probably go with the Mopar version if I had it to do over. I don't think the lack of the deep walls would affect me too much, as I generally keep my vehicles clean. Last winter, I didn't come close to needing the depth that the Rugged Ridge liners provide.

That's my two cents...

I like the gold Jeep logo- might need to do that on mine.

The Mopars are perfect for me. I just wanted something to keep the winter slush from soaking the carpet all the time, especially with my kids in the back seat!

I highly rec. the Mopars unless you are doing serious muddin'
