    Any suggestions? I went to Walmart yesterday and looked at their floor mat selection - mostly cheap stuff that looked like it might rub through after a couple years. I drive a 2008 double cab.

    What's the best alternative to the WeatherTechs? I really don't want to spend $100+ on floor mats, personally. I'd like to spend maybe $50-75 if possible and get a slight upgrade from the cheapo Walmart mats.

    I believe the husky liners are cheaper than weather techs, and are just re-branded weather techs.

    Pardon me for asking, but aren't weathertechs around $120? I'm looking to spend $75 or less on them.

    Buy American, buy weathertech...

    The ones fritz linked look good and are cheap. Also check the for sale section, you can find some good deals there on used weathertechs...

    I didn't look at what truck you are driving Sorry, I put these in a 13 double cab I believe the weathertechs for my truck were more like 170 or so.

    Check out Husky Liners. Mine have held up now for almost 6 years and still going strong. They are cheaper than Weathertech and seem to be good quality.

    I'm a little concerned with the size of the WeatherTechs. They seem to be pretty bulky. I almost think I'd like something a little less bulky, but still durable. Maybe even just a less molded and more flat type mat.

    If you're looking for less molded, and more flat, then go with the stock all-weather mats that come in the new tacos. I've seen a set of huskyliners over the past tens years, the door sill spot likes to curl over from getting in and out, but other than that, they've held up amazingly. Personally, I have a set of weathertechs, and my interior would probably be ruined without them. They aren't thick or bulky really, they just cover the floor with a very durable material.

    That's more what I'm worried about. I think I'd like something more slim or simple.

    The weathertechs actually mold to the door sill, and I don't foresee them having the same problem.

    If you're looking for the standard all weather toyota mats you can probably score a set cheap off of here. A lot of guys go for the weather techs and sell the all weather or carpeted ones that come with the truck.

    I think I'm leaning towards the stock Toyota all weather mats. They appear to be of good quality and obviously fit well.
