    I've noticed more than a few threads concerning these mats...sometimes they don't fit exactly as advertised. Here's a couple easy things you can do to fix them...
    If the seat rails hit the rear mats when the seat is adjusted back use a razor blade or a dremel to carve the plastic to alleviate the rideing condition.
    If the front mats aren't fitting snug use a heat gun to mold the plastic to the desired shape and have a way (weights/clamps/ect) to hold the new shape until the plastic cools down completly. I would advise doing this with the mats out of the truck.
    If the WeatherTech logo becomes separated from the mat use double back tape to secure it...I tried silicone adhesive but it wouldn't bond to the plastic.
