    Hot Damn, I got my Weathertech floor liners today. I'm so happy with these. I ordered them on Friday, 21 March. They are a perfect fit. They cost me $174.90 and ordered them from the Weathertech website. Did I mention how happy I am?

    I love mine as well. I have the tan interior, and the tan mats don't exactly match since they are a darker shade, but they work well with the factory color.

    Anyone have pictures of the back mats for the access cab? I want to see how they fit back there.

    I'll order when I have a truck to put them in. I was thinking of getting the black to go with the contrast of black/gray in the truck and also complement some wet okoles.

    They are quality mats. I have them in my Tacoma and GMC 3/4 ton and the fit was perfect in both.

    The problem with the Weathertechs that have kept me from buying them is first; they do not go up far enough, especially near the gas pedal. Two, they do not cover the dead pedal at all. I got the Husky liners since they do both of those and they get better reviews on Autoanything. But they do not cover the the door sill like the weathertechs.

    That's exactly why I went with the Weathertech. I like how it covers the sill, easy to sweep out.

    I think the first couple of production runs of the Weathertech mats extended further underneath the fuel pedal than the current model. I was very disappointed when I installed my Weathertechs and found this to be a problem. You wouldn't believe the mess I clean from these few square inches of carpet weekly due to the salt and slush mixture melting off my boots.

    I also used black silicone to patch the two rear holes in the liner. Water was escaping through the holes onto the carpet below.

    I purchased these liners due to the positive responses I read on various Tacoma forums. No doubt they are a quality product, but my homemade cut to fit rubber mats protected my carpet better than these, and were only 1/10th the price. I don't think I would buy them again for my next vehicle unless I saw them installed in person.

    Holy crap man! Why did they do that? Those first gens are great! It CANNOT be for safety...the Husky's go up all the way and they are safe and never have been an issue.

    Sometimes I just don't get why companies change a good thing...except to cut corners.

    This thread got me thinking enough that I went back to the Weathertech Website and checked their photos for the Tacoma - the first generation liners are still shown as the representative sample for their product.

    http://www.weathertech.com/store/mv...Id=52&VehId=660&Year=2005&VehOptChoiceIds=618

    I sent them a calm but stern E Mail regarding my initial research between their product and Husky's Liners, how I required maximum coverage as I work in a muddy environment with my truck, and how their online product photo is no longer accurate. Lets face it, they claim their liner as the best, they provided a false product photo, and the product isn't living up to their claims. I've got two bottles of carpet cleaner used up already since January. This isn't good enough for liners that cost $155.94 Canadian ($119 for the mats, $19 shipping, 13% taxes).

    I could have purchased the Husky Liners locally for $113 out the door.

    I'm guessing product liability. There have been reports of accelerator pedals getting hung up on rubber mats (don't know if WeatherTech was included) when depressed (ahem) rather vigorously.

    I like my Weathertechs, but then I don't track much mud and water into my truck. If I did, I'd probably get the Huskys, but I like the fit and finish of the Weathertechs better.
