    Ok, so I finally found some time to work on this (between work trips and wedding planning). I do not have any pics yet - but I will get some when I get back from Hawaii...

    The package was sent to me undamaged and in perfect condition. I was a bit confused at the fact that it came from Bling Lights - vice AutoMatCentral... and my fiancée accused me of buying more lights for the truck...LOL

    That said, my initial thoughts of the mats were a bit off... There was a putrid rubber smell that smelled much like a skunk. So, after stinking up the kitchen when I opened it - I rapidly moved it to the garage.

    Since I didn't have time to do the install right away - they stayed there for several weeks. But the good news is that the smell did wear off - thank God.

    So, here is what I did to install. I took out the existing floor mats and traced the edges onto the roll of mat that was sent to me. Using a utility knife, I CAREFULLY trimmed the mat, put everything back together, and viola!, I was done...

    That said, they have only seen rain and some mild dirt from my everyday commute to DC...

    I do like that it is a thick solid piece of mat - and that it stays in place because of the nubs on the bottom of the mat... Aside from the smell and not having any edges (like Huskyliners) to keep water dirt contained - they are pretty sturdy and should hold up to some nasty stuff...

    That said, thanks for an opportunity to review the product AutoMatCentral!!
