    So after having my weather techs for about 2 months the weather tech logos fell off...anyone else having this problem...NOT IMPRESSED! Going to call them on monday and have them send me new logos to stick on. Kind of ironic how the weather tech logo that says "made in the USA" FALLS OFF!! WTF??

    The point is that weathertech liners keep your floors clean and dry...The logo doesn't have any part of that.

    It's just glued on-If you have alot of dirt/water/debris on there or temp extremes...It's gunna fall off eventually. Maybe it happened a bit faster than you want...but the mats still work just fine??

    yes...mats work fine...except the driver side does not fit as well as the passenger. Is the logo falling off happening to anyone else. AND...what if it did happen to you? would you say "oh well, that what you get for buying $160 nfloor mats," or would you want it fixed? keep in mind they are only 2 months old, NOT 5 years old? Maybe i'm wrong to be upset?

    slap some "Goop" under those puppies. As far as the fit, just heat up the area with a heat gun or hair dryer and mold it.

    if the paint fell off your truck 2 months after buying it, would you just slap some new stuff on? no. they sell a product with a logo on it, it's not supposed to come off, the man just wants what he paid for, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    I removed my logos when I got them. Weathertech doesn't pay me to advertise.

    Your face doesn't impress me.

    Honestly though the Husky liners come up higher to hold more shit in the cab before soaking the carpet.

    But I will agree with you the Weather Techs look a little more polished. But this was a case of Function over looks for me.

    This is kind of my position. Settling for half-assed is the reason half-assed is becoming the new "good enough" in this country.

    As for WT not paying you to advertise, that's your prerogative, but honestly if anyone's interested, they're going to ask you which company produced that product anyway.

    My concern with the Huskies was the lack of flush fit at the sills, making me wonder how much stuff I'd be able to trap underneath them. WTs having that little lip over the sill gave me more warm and fuzzy.

    Honestly though, either one should do a damn site better job than any mat in the world...

    Paint and a 2 inch sticker are two VERY different things. Paint falling off my truck-Yes...I'd want that fix-Because that affects the integrity of the body. And I took all the badges off my truck the first week I owned it...I don't get money back for leaving them there and advertising for free. Someone wants to know what they are...They can ask and I'll tell them.

    If the mats came with holes/cracks/damage- It would warrant a WTF in my book. Getting butt hurt over a stick on logo...Not worth the effort or the phone call in my book. He got what he paid for- Mats that protect the floor. Before we start calling the mats half assed- I have yet to see ANYONE else report that their stickers fell off and the OP still hasn't mentioned the conditions he's used the mats in...Both important items before making a summary judgement about an entire product line....Jus Saying....

    Good luck getting your new logos...I'm out.

    get back in here!

    it doesn't matter what the product is, being paint or a sticker, he paid for mats with a sticker, you paid for a truck with paint, why not get what you paid for?

    there are complaints of gas pedals getting stuck under floor mats, so toyota is fixing it, because it's a defect in a product they produce and sell.

    your the only one getting butt hurt, he just want what he paid for.
