Floor mats Rugged Ridge vs Quadratec
 
Going to purchase some slush mats. Does anybody have an opinion about the rugged ridge or Quadratec ones? They both look pretty good to me and provide a lot of coverage for basically the same price. Feel free to throw another option in if you have another brand you love...

I have Quadratec, and love them.
I have them up front, and back in cargo area.
Fit is outstanding, and material is great.
If you order from them don't make mistake like I did and order on line.
Call them and tell them you are member of this forum, and they will give you free shipping.
Good luck.

I love Quadratec, mainly because they ship things to me so quickly. With that said, I have their cargo mat in the back of my JK. I took my back seat out, for the dogs, and put the mat down after cutting out the inserts so I could put my backseat in on top of it if need be. The cutouts are not in the right place.

The mat fits the cargo area perfectly, but the cutouts are off by at least half an inch, which kind of sucks. I am using it anyway. It's great to have back there for my Dachshunds, but it is also REALLY thin.

All in all, it's not a bad cargo liner, but for the money I would have expected it to be heftier and to actually line up on a 2012 JK correctly.

Just my $.02. I can't speak to any other floor liners, but I do have the Mopar slush mats up front and they are great! Wish they had the same type liner for the back, as that is exactly what I would use back there too.

Just got my Quadratec recently. Work great up here in the NE with all the salt grime, and snow slush. Also if you order all 3 mats, front, rear, cargo, you can get a $20 gift card in the mail.

And I love how mine fit in the JKU, they cover up more than I expected.

I really like the Quadratec slush mats. They still provide decent grip when wet unlike some others. Fit perfect too.:thumb:

I don't know about the JK, but for JKU they fit perfectly.
One has to pay attention ordering them, because they come for Jeeps with sub-woofer and Jeeps without.
That is also area for my German Short hair, and over that liner I got some padding so on longer rides my dog can lay down comfortably on it.

Yeah, mine has the subwoofer and if I had not cut out the holes for the backseat, it fits perfectly. All I was saying on mine, in the JK, is that I cut out the holes to expose the brackets for my backseat and the holes in the liner are not directly over the seat brackets. They're misaligned by at least a half inch. So what happens is the liner edge sits on top of the seat bracket instead of around it.

I hardly ever use the backseat, so I should have just left the liner whole I guess, but I didn't know until after I cut it out that it doesn't perfectly fit the seat brackets in the 2 door. I also hook bungie cords between the seat brackets across the floor and use them to strap down loose objects in the back. I would hate to give that up too.

Oh well, not really a big deal. Just wanted to point out that the Quadratec cargo liners are not a perfect fit for the 2 door JK if you still want to use the back seat with the liner in place.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Lots of love for the quadratecs. I wasn't going to order the rear cargo mat, but maybe I should consider it...

I was wondering how to get the free shipping, so I'll definitely have to call.

xcoaste 01-18-2013 01:18 PM

If you have a JKU, as in your picture, I say get the rear cargo area. It fits like a glove and has a nice lip to contain any minor spills. It is much nicer than the one that comes with the Jeep.

EDIT: Unless you keep the back seats folding down. If you do keep them down to have more room, skip it.

kbwwolf 01-18-2013 01:54 PM

Not sure if anyone's mentioned this, but the Quadratec and RR used to be the same thing...Q version was just re-branded. Don't know if that's still the case, but I'd just order the Q and call it a day.

And I second (or third, fourth, whatever) the advice to buy the mat for the cargo area. I've got one in my JKU, underneath my Tuffy box, and it's pretty much saved my carpet from getting trashed, so far.

AUskier 01-18-2013 03:43 PM

Thanks all! Ordered the quadratecs and they should be here next week.

I do have a 4 door, but I decided not to order the cargo mat since I have the teraflex 3rd row brackets installed and I would have to cut it. I'll just stick with the rubber side up of the jeep one it came with that I've already cut.

MikeK46 01-18-2013 03:51 PM

I have the husky floor liners in mine, I like how they curve up the side of the floorboards.

Quadratec Cargo Liner
 
I just purchased the Quadratec Cargo Liner for my 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I agree with prior posts that the cutouts for the backseat are out of alignment. Although the liner itself fit snugly, the back seat will not lock in place due to the thickness of the liner. I put all kinds of pressure on it, but no go. Once I removed the liner, the seat locked fine.

Anyone else experience this? If so, what did you do to resolve?

Yes. same issue here. I had to make LARGE holes around the seat brackets and then use my body weight to get the seat to lock.

Here is what I had to do to get the rear seat to latch. Not thrilled about it but at least it works.

A little late, but the Quadratec mats are made by Omix-Ada, which also makes the Rugged Ridge versions along with Tread Lightly and 4WD.com.

I have the Quadratec mats; I bought them 2 months ago and I generally like them. They fit well, they look great, and they really do work as advertised. One thing, though, and I'm sure it would be an issue with any floor may with an aggressive tread pattern...

I wear shoes and boots with thick soles on them (Doc Marten's, Durango motorcycle boots, etc.), and sometimes, my boots will caught in the treads when I take my foot off the floor to hit the gas peal or clutch.
