Question Husky Weatherbeater Floor Mats

I have read several threads in the past regarding floormats, but am looking for something specific here...

I just sent back a set of Weathertech Floor Liners, because they didn't fit well in the front. Specifically, the outer lip which should meet up with the door sill is about 1 - 2 inches too high. It should be flush. Secondly, both front mats don't fit exactly flush against the outside of the truck. There are plastic pices with a 90 degree angle by the hood release and under the glove box.

I am contemplating ordering a set of the Husky Weatherbeater Mats, but want to know if anybody else has them, and if they could post a picture or two. I want them to fit well, for what they cost.

Thanks,

JS

Your weathertechs would've adjusted to fit. You have to give them a little time to settle. They are stored and sit that way, once they sit in your truck and basically relax they get better. Also you could use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften them up and mold em to fit better.

I had the same issue with my first set of weathertechs. I was getting ready to send them back when someone told me to use a hair dryer on them. After I tried that my floormats fit perfectly. I've had several sets now and I do this to all of them and they end up fitting better then any other floormat I've used. I have heard that the husky floormats are good also though.

Just like lariatguy10 and navydocsuperdutys I had the same problem with the first fit. Give them time they will adjust to the truck. I looked at a pair of Husky Weatherbeaters but no matter how much I tried to shape them I couldn't get a good fit. Also the Husky's seemed to retain water and didn't drain properly. Maybe I just got a bad set but the Weather Techs are much better.

Thanks for all the replys. I had a set in my prior truck (2500hd) and they fit perfect, right out of the box. I used these for 2 weeeks thinking they would fit better, but they didn't adjust enough for me to be happy. If they cost less, then I probably would be OK with that. Not sure what I'll do now...

I had some Weathertechs in my 09. I didn't even bother putting them in the 2010. I hated them. The front ones fit okay but not anywhere near perfect and don't even get me started on the waste of money back one. I have a friend just buy some of the Husky's for his 2010 Dodge and they fit perfect and the back one looks awesome. It forms and covers everything. I have really been considering buying the Weatherbeaters.

I have the Husky Liners (front and rear) and love them, this is the second truck I put them in and wouldn't have it any other way.

i have had both sets in my 08 and the weathertechs fit almost perfect right out of the box,i have had them for 20,000 miles and when i clean them they look brand new,they also settled in nice and fit perfect now.the huskys in my opinion were poorer quality plastic <they did not retain their shape well over time.the edges seemed to roll ,or curl up,and the center hump cover fit like crap.the only thing i liked better about the huskys was that they were easy to clean,just wipe them off(no deep grooves),the weathertechs have grooves where dirt builds up,but i just take them out once in a while and scrub them down and hose them off.in my opinion you will be happier with the weathertechs.try customer service maybe just got a bad set
