    Your link just takes you to the weathertech website. Unless you can find a used pair, that is about the best price you will find. Others will be close but higher due to a markup from another distributor.

    I have had both Weathertech and Husky Floor Liners. The Huskys protect more and are much easier to install. Look at the Husky before you decide.

    170 is the going rate.
    Take a look at some of the threads for 2013's w/ weathertechs. Some guys are having issues with them. Not sure if this is a one off problem or a weathertech production problem w/ the new 2013s.

    The Classic or the WeatherBeater Huskys? It looks like the only difference is the design of the molded pattern on them, though...

    According to that thread, the WeatherTechs are $160 shipped for DC. The quote I got for Husky WeatherBeaters on AutoAnything is $144 shipped.

    The Huskys cover the retention hook holes; the WeatherTechs don't.

    The WeatherTechs have an ugly glossy badge on them; the Huskys don't.

    The Huskys have a lifetime warranty; the WeatherTechs have a 3-year warranty.

    Hmm... I think my mind is almost made up.

    how deep is the surface comparing to the weathertechs? i like the huskys because it covers the hook i also saw the warranty but however the warranty only covers if its something they factory mess up on and its mats what could be a defect cause by them for us to use warranty? use and wear caused by the consumer and cause the mats to crack or rip i doubt would be covered by warranty if that makes any sense..

    The warranty actually sounds pretty good to me:

    I have the digital fit floorliners in my '09. Honestly, the look good but compared to other products I've used, they allow a ton of shit to get under them. That's considering price. I wouldn't say they allow more, but they also don't allow less which is silly for how expensive they are.

    while weathertechs are celebrated here...I think they are over rated. I know because I've had 2 sets. They also are overpriced (I guess it's how they can afford prime time TV ad spots)

    The OEM rubber mats for 67bux from TRDparts4U do the same thing...protect the carpet.

    the weathertechs don't cover the dead pedal...and allow sand/dirt/water to get behind if you place your left foot there.

    I guess if you live in snow country, or work in muddy conditions and are constantly getting in/out of your truck...or if you are prone to spilling 32 ounce drinks (and the drink makes it to the center of the liner and misses the center console)...they may be the right product for you.

    I also don't like the hard plastic feel of the weathertechs under foot...especially w/ wet shoes. I'll take the OEM rubber mats...or the OEM carpet mats.

    I will add, I had a set of Huskys in a F-150 years back (dealer put them there)...they were OK. But I'd still prefer carpet or rubber mats over the plastic liner style.

    your opinions may differ.

    The box says "Husky Floor Liners". I don't think they are classics.

    I think I'll pull the trigger on the Husky liners. They've gotten enough good reviews on AA, and enough people around here seem to like them.

    Either style is referred to as floor liners. The Weatherbeater design came about because Weathertech was handing them their ass in the sales end of the game. Also where the name Weatherbeater came from, implying they beat Weathertech. Nifty also had to change their design to keep up.

    I sell both brands, doing far more with Weathertech. I have used both in my cars, no issues with either.
