daggo66 There was a similar product out several years ago. I believe it was rubber and it was very expensive. There were fitment issues with that as well and it went away.

machz I had one on order in December but cancelled because of this thread. I have contacted them several times and they are telling me that the fitment problem was actually in the front around the seat mounts and has been fixed. So I have another on order and they will pay for return shipping if there are any problems.

I have color matched raptor liner that I have sprayed in my last jeep and I'll use it again but I will be using these on top of the liner and will pull them from time to time for water problems.

daggo66 My personal opinion is that this is worse for you Jeep than carpet. Moisture can get under there and will do damage. You would be better off with no carpet and just floor mats. That's what I did.

MattK Any update on this? I have a 13 and am looking at this stuff.

They are giving me a full refund and free return shipping.
Yeah from what I have heard they are all on backorder as they fix the fitment. I have one on order I hope it fits perfect as it should.

Glad to hear they are at least giving you a full refund. Still very frustrating to have spent your whole weekend only to find out there is a problem.

I'm not surprised by this. I bet the '11+ pieces were for the cargo area, right? The '07-'11 pieces were for the front?

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. :-(

George Ross I appreciate you sharing the information. Pretty disappointing result. I hope you can return it.
10-13-2013 12:11 PM
mgola27 That's too bad. I was really hoping for a factory-like replacement for the carpet...
10-13-2013 10:42 AM
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.
10-13-2013 10:36 AM
taskforce 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.

Be sure to post pics either way...

JeepHerz 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.

That's true, buy my interest is not really in its ability to be removed, although that might come in handy for cleaning.

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.
09-30-2013 08:34 AM
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.
09-30-2013 07:43 AM
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.

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.

I had thought of this too. The DIY liner would cover any areas the BedTred doesn't and the BedTred would cover any wires.

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