    Do the weather tech mats fit manuals trans? I look online and only see for auto? I don't see what the big difference could be. Anybody know if there could be problems getting them for my 08?

    Yes.
    I couldn't find a set specifically for the manual... maybe somebody on here knows. If you order the auto set you will have to trim the drivers side just a little. The clutch will catch on it if you do not. I have a set and just trimmed the drivers side, 0 problems. when you put them in you will see... just dont go driving to test them.

    I ordered them, and just trimmed a small cutout for the clutch because it caught VERY occasionally. All the protection and it fits my truck, I have no complaints. Great mats.

    Clutch interference is the concern that means WeatherTech does not produce mats for a manual.

    A small notch below the clutch pedal will do the trick. I also put the hook side of some Industrial Velco under mine and it sticks to the rug pretty good. With the retention hooks near the seat- It works great.

    Ok thanks for all the info. Doesn't sound like anything I can't handle.

    No problem...I installed them on my 4cyl/5 spd, just a simple trim of about a 2" x 4" piece of material with a simple sharp scissors. Note the trimmed area under the pedal in the 2nd pic.

    Check clutch pedal movement and trim as needed.

    This is one of the best upgrades to do, IMHO.

    Same here-- I've got an '09 manual and with minor trimming no problems at all, have had for probably 6 mos, clutch has never caught. I had called them originally to ask before ordering, a lady told me the reason they don't make them for manuals is because they're not common enough for them to bother making a different version. She also told me to just trim them.

    Great product, I just hose mine off when I wash the truck.

    I've had mine in my 09 6 speed since May 2009 and I didn't even have to trim them. I didn't get the laser fit for the rear (I have a double cab), I got the mats, but after looking at it, I think the rears would be OK - maybe just some minor trimming. Great mats.

    i had to trim my digitals in my reg cab 2010 5 speed manual. i actually could not believe that a mat that fits so well would hang up on the clutch pedal! and when i ordered them i even called and let them know exactly what truck i have.
    but alas it was an easy fix that you can not see unless you practically kneel down and look right at it. other than that i think they are the best protection for your rugs money can buy.

    Thanks for the info on this, including the photos. I've just purchased an 06 4wd v6 manual and was a bit worried about the disclaimer on the weathertech website--but the order is in and I'm off and running. These forums are incredibly helpful! You laid a newbie's mind to rest.

    Mine hung up the clutch. At first I thought there was no interference, so I didn't do anything. It's distressing when starting from a light though, and shifting, and your clutch sticks in! So I notched mine in a nearby parking lot with a pocket knife. Cut out a couple square inches. Works great now.

    What I really like about 'em is how easy it makes cleaning the interior. No vacuum cleaner. Just pull the mat, shake it out/empty, then wipe it down with the damp towel I'm using for dusting the rest of the interior.

    Two thumbs up!
