Help me decide on Floor mats

I am beating myself silly trying to decide which floor mats to go with. I have narrowed it down to the Mopar "dark Khaki" slush mats OR the quadratec floor liners. I live in the south and it don't snow here, but I do want rubber for easy cleaning. With the mats, I am concerned the dark khaki will clash with the lighter tan carpet (not spice). I have a black exterior. With the Liners, I am concerned they are difficult to get out, they are too "plasticy", and they would be problematic to take out if it rained and "pooled" in them. On the other hand they will protect better and in my opinion the liners look better. FYI, I really don't do alot of off-roading, just really the beach. The mopars ones can be had for $80 for a full set and the liners about $130.

Anyone have any comments on pros and cons of both?

If you are stuck in a quandary over which floor mat clashes with the interior. You might as well sell the Jeep now because your head is going to explode when you have to figure out what wheel, tire, top, lift, skid, bumper, driveshaft, tummytuck or bling bling you will be installing later.

Autozone? :-( that truly saddens me. Please go somwhere else. I say go with the tweety bird floor mats or maybe a nice Yosemite sam. Both say fun...with a touch of class.

i got some rugged ridge liners free. they work pretty nicely. i tend to get a lot of mud in them and they just wash off. and when it rains and i leave the top off and doors off, the mats pool nicely. they got a cool tire tread look to them and theyre like $50 on 4wd.com

I really don't understand the big deal it's rubber floormats that do the same thing as the others for a quarter of the price haha. I guess I just don't take pride in my floor mats as much as others do

Nothing to do with the floor mats. I wouldn't buy an air freshener from autozone. Its the only place besides pepboys I've gone where someone has lied to me about availability and fit of their products because they thought I didn't know better. I will take my business elsewhere and encourage others to do the same. I could care less if he gets floor mats made from roof shingles.

I have the Quadratec ones and they fit nicely, contain all dirt and stones, and clean easily. They're also nice and heavy and durable.

These floor mats are the last thing I am purchasing. I just not did not want to spend the $ on the mats and I did not think of something I would not be happy with. I am not going to be doing any mods or adding more accessories. I like mine stock. Besides if I had to do mods, your right my head would explode and there would be no one to drive the jeep.

Thanks to all for your feedback!
