Securing Interior Carpet

Help I just picked up my used 2017 JK Big Bear a few weeks ago, and I cannot for the life of me get the carpets to stay in place. I have tried using the clips that have designated threaded mounts, but thereís so much carpet in between those points, itís just sliding around. I tried using command strips but the carpet just pops up off of them. Itís particularly bad near the console as the carpet actually comes off towards obstructing the gas pedal, making me VERY nervous.

I would prefer not to just seal the carpets in, as I obviously want to be able to strip it out offroading. Please throw some of your hacks and solutions my way, Iíve looked everywhere online and couldnít find anything!

You shouldn't be having this problem, the carpet should tuck up nicely under the console edge on one side and the kick panel on the other side

My second set working much better at staying in place compared to the factory installation set. Not sure why. BedTreds also didnít work well for me in this regard.

wranglersnapplepie - are these the OEM or replacement carpets. That could make a big difference.

I never had this issue on my '15 Sahara nor do I have it with my '17 Chief. The Sahara still had the OEM carpets when it was traded in on the Chief and the Chief still has the original carpets.

There are a couple of pins to assist holding the carpet in place, but it should be tucket under the door sills, the center console and the kick panels in the front.

Hmmm good to know, but honestly I canít say if theyíre OEM or not because I bought her pre-owned. They certainly look stock, and I got the impression removing them that they hadnít been taken out by the previous owner. But yes, before me removing them I did still notice that they werenít flush and contoured with the body underneath.

Iíll take some pictures tonight to try and illustrate where the biggest problems are! Ultimately itís still shifting and sliding underneath though, with all 3 or 4 clips in.

You can see how they come away from the dash no matter how much I tuck them in

My 2016 does the same thing. It is like they cut the carpet to short. I can push it back under but will come undone quickly. I am going to try some Velcro one of these days.

Thatís disappointing, maybe Iíll visit the dealership to see if they have extra clips or solutions. Maybe even price out a replacement.

Could this be covered under factory warranty?

*Update*

I got some 10mm bolts with built in washers from the dealership, which fits over each of the threads protruding for the carpet clips. Using these with the plastic clips in other places, the carpets are MUCH more secure. Use the metal bolts for each front side closest to the dash.
