Rugged Ridge vs Mopar Winter/Slush Mats

For a 2011 Sahara Unlimited. Any opionions here, trying to figure out which winter/slush/mud mats to get to keep the floors in decent shape and i have narrowed it down to these two so far. I want a 3 pc set to keep back seat floor in good shape also. In my older Grand Cherokee i had Husky liners that started to curl on the edges with time and not stay in place they were made of a harder molded plastic/vinyl and i would like to use a more pliable material (rubber or softer plastic/vinyl) Thanks in advance for the opinions

I have the 4WD version of the Rugged Ridge mats [Rugged Ridge makes the same mats for 4WD.com and Quadratec.com but at $10 cheaper]. They are great and hold water like a bowl. I have to dump them out at least once a day when it snows.

I've always really liked my MOPAR mats, but I also can't comment on the RRs except that I'm a bigger fan of the looks of the MOPAR.

Really? What happened to them? I'll admit, the area under my heel looks to be taking a little bit more of a beating than I anticipated the otherwise tough looking rubber would . . . .

Driving in stilettos is not recommended.

I have the Mopar slush mats and can't fault them. My wife doesn't like it when I wash them in the shower though.

One thing people are failing to explain is

The mopar slush mats are MATS, the rugged ridge ones are floor LINERS.

Essentially, the rugged ridge/quadratec ones actually line your floor so it holds in moisture and mud like a bin, whereas the mopar slush mats don't line your floor, they just cover it.

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 agree. I bought them for my Wrangler back in November—back before it was built, let alone bought!
They fit perfectly and look great, especially if you have a 4 door.

Anyone have any comparison on the Quadratech to the Weathertech? I have had Weathertech in a few vehicles but it looks like the quadratech may be a bit beefier?

I'm willing to give them a try i just want to possibly add the rear mat to my shopping cart for the cargo area. Are they sticky? Meaning stuff wont slide around when on it?

Thanks
Chris

I have a 5 piece set in my 11 two door wrangler (quadratec) The rear cargo mat covers the whole area and I have the rear seat out. I have no problem with cargo sliding around. If you need the rear seat they have cutout spots in them for the seat mounts and the mat goes under the rear seat area. I don't plan on using the rear seat so I never have cut mine. Just had to cutout for the subwoffer which is marked for you also. They have a 1 inch high catch lip all the way around, just like the front seat ones and work really well.

My Rugged Ridge mats arrived yesterday. (18 hour day and I still had to install 'em right away.)
I like how the 4-door rear mat is a one-piece as well. Extremely stable because of the great fit.
The fit on all of them is perfect and they are of high quality. Zero complaints.
