    Are trying to kill me. Why would a floor mat try to kill me? I cannot understand where I went wrong with my floor mats. I kepp them clean and clipped and yet they are angry with me. Any ideas?

    If you keep your floor mats stored in a clean dry place they will do you no harm.

    I see the problem. US mats are installed backwards from the Canadian mats.
    Hard to understand since we all drive on the same side of the road.

    Was your truck built in Mexico?

    That is what I'm trying to figure out. People, Toyota gives you those clips for a reason. USE THEM!!!!

    None of my other cars had clips. Hell the ranger had 1" thick rubber matts with mad cleats. Also never had issues.

    well they gave me plenty of them. I even think they knew about the problem when I got them because they kept asking me if I had been given clips.

    Well your comment about your floor mats "trying to kill you" is just as bad, so pipe down. Go read the bulletin on Toyota's website and stick to fact, not "humour".
