Just talked to BedTred today. The company apologized and explained to me that there were differences between the 2007-11,12,13 and 14 JKs. They were not aware of those changes when they first released the product (apparently no one else either - and none that are significant enough for me to tell). Nonetheless, they are tracking the issue and are redesigning the product for the newer JKs. They said it's a new issue and not all of the resellers and dealers are tracking the problem. They need to pull the product. Bedtred said they would email me when they release the new design. Sigh...
They are giving me a full refund and free return shipping.

The only interior changes I know of we're on the '11+ and those changes were relegated to the cargo area (at least as far as the BedTred is concerned).
Either way, it sucks that it doesn't fit. :-(

|milani||So you installed the 11 kit on a 14????|

|George Ross||I appreciate you sharing the information. Pretty disappointing result. I hope you can return it.|

|mgola27||That's too bad. I was really hoping for a factory-like replacement for the carpet...|

|taskforce||The rear wheel wells fit the best and still had large creases. The rear floor piece would require some cutting and trimming just get close the gate. Here you can see when the gate is closed it rips up the whole floor. The floor tray also needed to be cut but even after careful trimming I still decided the factory was much better. The worst part fit-wise is the middle section.|

First of all I would like to say that the material itself looks nice and durable. If the Bedtred was fit and cut exactly like the factory carpet it would be perfect.
That said, I'm not happy with the product. The only thing I can guess is that they shipped the wrong set in the wrong box. Mine is clearly labeled on the box as 2011+ JK 2-dr. I was attempting to put in both the front and back sets in a 2014 2-dr.
The fit was awful and took several hours of fiddling with and fighting the material just to get it in. There are large areas left with exposed floor paint and large creases with bubbles in the material. I got several other guys to assist me and we followed the directions very carefully. We found that some of the diagrams in the manual do not match the dimensions of the pieces or vehicle itself which left us guessing where exactly to put the velcro. I tried calling Friday but just missed business hours. Will try to contact be Bedrug on Monday.
In the end I removed it all. The velcro and bedtred came out easy with no damage to the vehicle. Only 2 days of free time lost to fighting with it.

|taskforce||Finally got a day off to work on the install. I'm not happy with the front fit so far. Removing the carpet was actually surprisingly easy but I spent several hours trying to fit the new Bedtred. I just doesn't look right. I'm going to call the manufacturer tomorrow to make sure I'm not totally retarded.|

Thanks for posting up OP- BedTred has been threatening release for the newer JKs for awhile now. I am personally not crazy about sanding down perfectly good paint (or at least it was until I removed the carpet) to re-paint. And DIY just seems too tedious. Rather spend my time modifying something fun. Quoted $400+ for bedliner install- so $499 isn't that bad.
My only worry with this is if dog hair would stick to it just as badly as carpet? The reason I pulled the carpet to begin with.

If these don't make you run out and buy bedtred, nothing will...

Here is the first real-world pics I've seen of the BedTred... looks pretty good, I think.

I like it for the (presumed) more-finished look than a roll-on/spray-on bedliner. For a hard core Jeeper, I think it works to have a more utilitarian look, but I like how the BedTred/BedRug covers the wiring harness and other elements more like the stock carpeting.
The stock carpeting is just a pain to clean after the dog has been for a ride.
I might actually put the Rug in the front (more carpet-like) with the Tred (more-durable easier clean-up) in the cargo area.
Just waiting to see how it looks/works before I pull the trigger.

|2resa||I herculined the cargo area and rear seat area (too lazy to take out front seats). I put in the BedRug for everywhere but the cargo area and I'm pretty happy with it. I don't run with doors for 1/2 the year so it really was more of a practical issue.|

|BigDeaner||I've always liked the bedrug over the tred, but its all personal preference. I'm in the process of bedlining my TJ and putting bedrug over it. Will let you know how it turns out.|

|taskforce||Just ordered the bedtred for my JK. Autoaccessories garage had the best price with 15%off and free shipping. Will post pictures and review when it gets here. Now I just need to figure out how to pull my carpet, which I've heard is not hard.|
|09-24-2013 07:41 PM|
|relyt||A couple guys on jkowners got this stuff and both sound to be impressed. One got the tred and the other got the rug. I can't remember which, but one said the fit wasn't perfect but thinks it may have been an install problem rather than problem with quality.|

|army vet||Thanks for posting this! I found this site one night while I was searching around the web and thought it was interesting. However I forgot to bookmark it and I couldn't remember the name. Know I have it|

What I don't know is how well the BedTred fits. I heard that the Mopar kits don't fit well in the back.

|carlojp||I think doing the DIY bedliner and get a Bedtred are a good idea.|
|09-23-2013 10:19 PM|
To me, I don't see the benefit in being able to remove it. It seems as tho of dirt and water gets trapped under it, that's a recipe for rust. With a real bedliner, the surface is prepared properly and then the bedliner, which is also a sealer, is sprayed on top. This will prevent any dirt or water getting under the bedliner
And it's only ~$100-$150 for a good DIY bedliner

I have the bedtred bedliner in my pickup and that stuff is badass. I throw engine blocks, transmissions and all kinds of stiff back there and havent poked a hole in it or ripped it yet. Take it to the 1/4 car wash and blast off the oil/dirt etc. It really reminds me of a spray in liner, except you can remove it.
You can go on bedrug's site and they will send you samples of the material, at least they used to..
