Did they send me the wrong cargo mat or are these junk?

I got some Rugged Ridge front mats for Xmas and love them so I went ahead and got the rest of them. The problem is the rear mat isn't big enough to cover the entire tub and doesn't have tread like the others. Is this the wrong product or is the rugged ridge cargo mat just bad?




Here is the rear row cargo mat which is much better.

Looks like it is designed for a backseat to be in place.

Looks good to me. Cargo mats only cover the "cargo" area, or the area behind the rear seat and the area not covered when it is folded forward.

Well that's unfortunate, I don't run with my back seat in. Are there any other brands that cover the entire area?

Have you contacted the vendor? That doesn't look right to me. Isn't there a small bit of space in front of the rear seat when installed? I would assume that space, where feet would be placed, should be covered.

The Husky Mat still says it accommodates the rear seat in the TJ model. I am sure there is one out there somewhere, but probably won't match the other mats in the vehicle.

You can see it on the website that it only goes to the back of the seat when it is folded up.

I got the same on last year and was also disappointed it didn't cover the whole area. They could have made it big enough and then just let the seat sit on top of it. I never did return mine...just threw it in the shed with the rest of the junk..that's the problem with buying on line sometimes, cost you more to send it back than it's worth.

That makes sense.
Also looks like the Rugged Ridge rubber mat is designed to lay on top of the carpet - not be a replacement for the carpet.

How much did you pay for that? I spent under 20$ at Canadian Tire for a similar mat that actually fits 90% but flush on the sides though my cargo area in my jeep.

I don't run with my back seat either. I bought the same mat thinking it would cover the entire area and was also disappointed I sent mine back too. I would love to find one that covers the entire area.

Pissibly one that fits a full aize SUV would fit. I have the one make for the Wrangler as well. But I thought it would be like that when I bought it. May check out one for a larger vehicle later.

Put a fuel cell in the open space. Problem fixed, and you just gained a huge amount of clearance.

That's actually not a bad idea. How much fab would it take?

I was thinking of getting one of those rubber truck bed mats and trimming it to fit. I will most likley never put my back seat in my LJ. I like I can put my mountian bike in the back and lock it up.
