    Looking to replace the stock floor mats, which "digital fit" rubber floor mat have the most coverage, Husky or Weathertech?

    I have huskys because they were already in my truck when I got it and they are just fine. If I was going to buy my own set I would probably go with weathertech.

    just received a set of Weathertech mats from Total Automotive Performance for my 2014 DBCSB. Ordered on Sun and received them today (Thursday).

    The Gray mats matches my gray trim perfectly and i love the way they over lap the door seal to keep dirt out. Also, they fit perfectly with the factory floor mat locks. You dont have to modify/replace the factory floor locks with "carpet screws" like others.

    I went with Husky X-Act Contour front/back and love them! I had Husky HDs in my first gen and they held up to everything I threw at them. Read that the Husky liners offer a little more coverage and fit a hair better than the weathertechs. I went with the Husky ones because they are made with a pliable heavy rubber and not a hard plastic liner. Just my 2 cents...

    I had Huskies in my Jeep 5 1/2 years. Carpet look like new when I sold it. First thing I did was put them in my 2014 in Dec 2013 when I bought it. Really pays for themselves.

    Had weathertechs and did not like them - very slippery when they get cold in winter.

    Bought these instead - Maxpider - built of kagu which is a rubber like fabric. http://www.amazon.com/3D-MAXpider-Complete-Custom-All-Weather/dp/B009TBQJA6

    Review of them here for a Sierra.



    Coverage and fitment not as good (I would say about 95% of weathertechs) but they look a hell of a lot nicer and then clean up way better.

    i have weather techs in my taco, and husky's in my wife's rav4. i say, can't go wrong with either. both fit great. if you have the money, go with weather techs, if you are looking for the best bang for the buck, go with the husky's.

    My thoughts as well. Love the fit of the weathertechs. But the plastic feel under foot is not as comfortable as a rubber or carpet mat to me.

    Other critique of the weathertechs is they only cover half the left foot rest. What's up with that??

    I went with the Husky exact fit or whatever they call them and have no complaints.

    I have WeatherTechs for my DC and they seem to have great floor coverage for the front and back seats. They're virtually in the same condition now as when I got them a couple years ago (not flimsy or anything like that). Not sure how the Huskys are - I considered them at the time but got in on a group buy for WeatherTech.

    I've had both and prefer the Husky x-act fit over the WT. Husky's also cover the dead pedal.

    338K on my Husky liners. Moved them from my 94 to my 02. Still going. I'll be buying Husky for my 15 or 16.

    I like my WeatherTechs. I've had them in multiple vehicles, mainly because I never knew the Husky liners existed until a year or so ago. I think with any floor liner, you won't go wrong. When I sold the first vehicle I had the WTs in, the carpet was in perfect shape, and that sold me on using them in future vehicles. I've been lucky enough to find mine used. For my Tundra and Focus, I was then able to sell them for what I paid for them when I got rid of the vehicles.

    I have/had Weather Tech Floor Liners in a Jeep, SUV, and 4 Trucks including my current Tacoma. I love them so I stayed with them. Never owned the Husky Liners but I have always heard good things about them so I don't think you can wrong either way.

    Had my first set in a Jeep and man do they old a lot of trail crap. Just pull 'em out, dump "em, spray with a hose and put "em back. I lived in a location with snow in those days and they held a lot of snow/slush too.

    I like my WeatherTechs. The gray matches the trim perfectly. I like my mods to look like they could have been factory.





    Saves the carpet, which is very important to me.
