Mine does...

I cut a piece of two inch thick memory foam to fit the space, then made a cover for it...I'll see if I can upload a pic.

Husky does make this little gem for the back of the older style back seat...apparently hard to find though...I might pick one up too

So, for a product that keeps factory carpet clean, -in my own experience-
with weathertechs and husky...husky wins.

I concur with this. The Husky Liners do not have the holes for the locking tabs with is another point for dirt under the Weathertech Liners.

What do you do with the tabs that hold the oem floor mats? Do they keep the Husky floor liners from sitting flush to the floor?

The tabs just push into metal grommets in the carpet and can be removed

HuskyLiner WeatherBeater FTW

It doesnt matter what Weathertech is asking about the console, dont buy them for your 2013. Search this forum, there are countless threads about the passenger side mat not fitting.

The Huskyliner photo above is not the comparable Husky product to the Weathertech. That is the lower end photo. You have to compare the Husky Liner Weather Beater. Same price, looks almost the same, but actually fits the 2013.

BTW, the floor mat tab photo above is also wrong. That pic is of the older 2005-2011 floor mat tabs. The 2012 and 2013 tabs are NOT removable, well not easily.

Ask me how I know all this. I bought both brands within a week after the Weathertechs failed miserably to meet my expectations! I should also mention that I had Weathertech in my 2006 Tacoma and loved them, but the fitment for the newer style was disappointing.

how did Weathertech fail your expectations? And how is in your opinion Weatherbeater better?

I checked Husky's site, and they do not list a Weatherbeater set for the 2011-2013 access cab Tacoma, either the front only or a set for front and rear. Odd that there's no option to purchase the fronts only, since you have them, although for a DC. Several other retailers only list them available as a set F&R for the DC.

They have a small dome that fits over the locking tabs ( no hole ).

Yes they sit flush on the floor.

Must I do everything:

On top of the fit, Weathertech was not interested in fixing the issue, and their vendor was not willing to pay the return freight.

The front matter the most and it is where the Weathertechs don't fit. Just buy a front only set of Huskyliners, and a rear AC Weathertech off Amazon warehouse. Or call Husky and ask what is up? Those rears are frequently on Amazon for really cheap.

I called Husky, and they do not offer the Weatherbeaters for Tacoma Access Cabs, front or back, and they do not offer the fronts only in any configuration. If I really wanted to get a set of Husky Weatherbeater floor liners, I would have to order the DC set and toss the rear liner, or hack it up to make it fit. Not gonna happen.

Husky also said they have no plans to make the Weatherbeater liners for the Tacoma access cabs or offer the fronts only in the foreseeable future. Really makes you want to do business with them...I'm not really interested in their original style floor liners.

So my WeatherTech liners came in today and I had them fitted. Well, not exactly. Passenger side didn't fit, as per postings here. They went back to the vendor who ordered Huskies instead. Some companies don't want to make money after all. Their loss.
