WeatherTech truck floor liners worth it???
« on: November 25, 2017, 12:34:24 PM »
In hopes of a cyber-Monday sale of some kind - are these really the bomb diggity as they claim?  I've never had them but debating it after just cleaning out my truck.  My truck is not a pavement princess but I do try to keep the inside clean-ish and at least dry.  It had a clam dig from a couple weeks ago followed by a three day late season archery hunt on the coast.  Both were a bit moist and sandy / muddy.

I have a healthy fear of wet stinky carpet.  The extended cab in a Ford Ranger I had many moons ago had wet carpet from my dog riding back there all the time on our outings.  That smell would not come out.

Thanks for any input you might be able to offer before I sink the money into expensive fancy plastic.

Have had them in my F-150 crew cab for 5 years. Fronts are great. Back one curled up along the doors, and always creeps back, so I have to slide it back up.

I like the Husky Lliners with the diamond treat pattern.  With general use, I can wipe them all down clean in 5 minutes with a wet hand towel  in either of my crew cabs.  If they are really muddy, you can pull them just like the weather techs and spray them down.   In the Boss's Suburban, we have Weathertechs.  You have to really  work to get them as clean and generally employees the shop vac as well.  Easier to pull them rather than try to scrub on them.  I much prefer the Husky's

The Husky's have the same creeping/ edge curling issues, as mentioned on the Weatertechs, though I have only noticed it on the front ones for both types.  I added some snaps on my Frontier and the Sub that anchor them to the plastic shrouding at he front of the door opening for both types, and additionally the shrouding on the seat anchor on the Frontier.  This keeps them in place and helps them keep their shape too.  On my Superduty, I just needed to anchor the driver and passenger sides to the center hump Husky cover, not into the truck shrouding.   If you need to pull them, just pop the snap loose.
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

Seems pretty unanimous -  Thank you gents.  I will look in to the Husky's as well.  Here's to hoping for a sale........  If not it's probably still happening!  :tup:

What I just ordered for an F150.
Weathertechs seem stiff.

The ones in my Silverado curled pretty bad. Think they were just a little too wide and were hitting the door. I like my Husky liners in my other Silverado better.

Cabela's has their branded weathertechs on sale. Looking at a set for my F150, but the wife has hinted I had better wait until after Christmas  :chuckle:

I get whatever brand is most reasonably priced, several outfits make basically the same thing.  If you clam, hunt, shoot ducks, or basically anything a truck is designed for I would spend the 1-300 bucks to get them.  We have them in our truck and Suburban and it has saved our bacon on many, many occassions.

They are worth every penny.  They are awesome at containing sand when we're at the beach clamming or what not.

Sell lots of them and haven't had anyone ever come back complaining. Just sold a bunch of sets of them to one of my construction company customers. They bought 3 sets and tried them out for a while. Liked them enough that they ordered them for a bunch of their trucks.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I have the Husky ones in my trucks, like em lot.

You launch your boat and have to get in the water for some reason, then back in your rig, the lipped edge keeps the water contained till u can carefully pour it out.

Husky for sure. Had some in my last rig and have new ones in my rig now. They will hold a 20 oz coffee, just sayin.

Bomb diggity.  I just got a front and rear "cut to fit" (not custom) set for an older truck and I am a believer.  No cutting required, they stay put, and they contain the snow melt like the Hoover dam.  Chicks dig them, too, and now the wife is jealously coveting my floormats.

Ordered the window vent visors, too, but have not installed those yet.

Bomb diggity.

You can have bomb diggity, or you can have floor mats.  The decision is yours.

After holding out for a sale of some kind (Christmas, after Christmas, New Years etc, etc, etc) it became apparent they do not have sales!

They are ordered and in route.  Should be here next week.  I'll have them in place for the next Long Beach clam dig to catch all that sand!
