    Up here in winter wonderland, i installed the weathertechs before fall.
    My problems is with all the snow covering my boots when getting in the truck, I would usually have a nice puddle soon after with the heat on.
    So my first correction was to put a sponge in the back of the mat, but it didnt suck up much water, and i kept kicking it out when i got out.
    But my next solution has worked better.
    I got something simular to the "shamwow", about 6 inches wide and laid that accross the back of the mat. It lays flat and is thin enought to kind of lay in the groves.
    But once i get home i just pull it out and ring it out real quick, and it does hold a good amount of water.
    Then i just place it back in for the next use.
    So far it has been working preaty good, but was wondering if anyone else had any other ideas.

    i pound them on the nerf bars, you may not be used to amount of snow we get.

    Plus clicking your heels in a foot of snow does no good, you still in a foot of snow when your done

    Pound them together while sitting on the seat with the door open. That's what I do when its muddy. Snow is even easier to pound off.

    I use black hand towels from Target. $2 each. When they get dirty I throw 'em in the washer. Work great!
