    I bought a complete set of rubber mats about a year ago off someone and I have noticed a difference between a lot people are selling on here and the ones that I have. The set that that I have says Toyota, but also there are 2 holes in each the front driver and passenger side floor mats for floor clips to hold them in place. In many of the floor mats I have seen posted, there are just holes in the driver mat. Does anyone know if the the set I have is the newer floor mat and the thinner ones?

    Did you ever get an answer to this? I also just bought new OEM floormats and mine have holes for both passenger and driver, but my truck ('05 Double Cab) only has holes for clips on the driver's side...?

    Mine have holes on both sides as well. I believe 07' and newer was the year they started installing the hooks for the passenger side as well.

    My 2010 AC has pegs on both sides of the cab to retain floor mats. I wonder if you can buy a kit to install them. When I got my WeatherTechs, they came with a set of pegs to go in the grommets. Do you even have the grommets to put the pegs in?

    If not, I bet a 1/4" or 3/8" grommet kit and the pegs would do you just right. You'd just have to pull the carpet up to get the tool in there to mate the two sides.

    Hi, looks like the Q has been answered but I would add that my '07 only had hooks on the drivers side but my '10 has them on the passenger. When I switched over my all weather mats I simply put a couple of slits in the mats to accept the hooks on the floor. I guess the bottom line is that mats with holes for hooks on the passenger side are newer updated mats.

    Alright, this is making more sense. It sounds like '06 and older don't have grommets on the passenger side. Kind of annoying that Toyota would only make one kind of mat for the passenger side (PT908-35002-02) seeing as they're the knuckleheads who did it without and then with grommets on the passenger side in the first place. You should be able to buy the passenger mat without holes for the older models...Maybe I'll see about installing my own grommets (ugh).
