Weathertech Winter Floor Mats

I've always put the Weathertech Floor Mats in all my vehicles.

My 2017 Trailhawk came with the winter protection package that included rubber floor mats.

I don't like that they don't have "full coverage" over the front floor area, and that the drivers left foot rest area is fully exposed to the carpeting under the mat.

Other than picking up another set of Weathertech mats for the front and rear ($269.00 Cdn) what are some of my other options?
I looked at the Mopar "rubber" mats and they also don't seem to cover the drivers left foot area

The "Husky" mats are $244.00 Cdn, so no big saving

Weathertech Floor Mats always seemed to be the most suggested in floor liners so that is what we grabbed up soon after bringing our Compass home. They have done a great job however sometimes I find myself wishing there was something that covered a bit more.

For instance the Weathertech driver side floor liner only covers about half the dead pedal. We end up with a lot or orange mud in our drive and places we wheel. This mud stains plastic and id a bear to get the plastic looking back to the way it should. So like right now half my dead pedal looks like crap! So now at some point I'm going to have to spend some time detailing it back out.

If your just dealing with snow,mush and water they work great!

I wouldn't buy Weathertech floor mats again after buying them for my wifes 2011 Compass, too expensive and material is too thin. I bought a full set of rugged ridge for my 2013 Jeep Patriot and picked up a full set ( front and back floor mats and cargo mat) as soon as I bought my 18 Compass. Your best bet is to wait for a 15-20% off coupon code on ebay and buy a set

Look into Husky Liner, plenty of video on Youtube. Fitment is great in my 2018 Sport. I have a Weathertech cargo liner only because Husky Liner doesn't make one.

I have the Mopar mats the fit and quality are as good as weather tech or husky. IMO Paid right around $100 for both front and rear mats.

I'm looking for more coverage around the pedals. Looks like a lot of snow and slush will still get under the Mopar mats, when your foot is on the accelerator.

Only thing I didn't like about the Mopar mats is that the rear mats are open in the front instead of boxed in. I do like their cargo mat though

I have the mopar mats and I like them, they are a good price point for what you get, currently about $110 (they were $99 when I purchased them)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZXR6RMZ/

I like that they say "JEEP" on them and they look good, fit perfect and complement the rest of the vehicle.

Those rugged ridge ones look pretty good also.

The mopar ones are a tiny bit thinner than maybe I would like and slightly more plastic-like than rubber, sort of a cross between the two, but I've had them for over a year now and they have been excellent. You can read my review and see some pics I took in that amazon listing I linked above.

As far as coverage for the pedals go almost none of the commercially available options are going to be satisfactory there, because there is a major legal concern about any type of floor mat that could even potentially interfere with the brake or gas pedals. It sucks but its another result of sue-everyone-to-death-america.

84z28 mentioned how the rear mopar mats are not dished forward and that is true, they won't hold an inch of water or anything but there is at least a 1/4" wall at the end of them so your typical snow melt off some shoes won't be enough to overrun that edge, and then its easier to slid things under the front seats from the back (I have a small first aid case under the seat, for example).

In another thread we have also talked about how a little bit of water and crud can get around the locating pins in the mats of the mopar ones, that same issue probably applies to others as well, you can see the pics I took in that thread:

https://www.myjeepcompass.com/forums...loor-mats.html

I don't see it as a major issue but this winter I may put a piece of black tape or something over the pin holes to reduce that issue. I used the mopar mats all of last winter and they cleaned up great in the spring with the pressure washer and the floor looks great underneath still, and we track a lot of snow into this buggy over the course of a Minnesota winter!

Dollar for dollar, the mopar ones are great value and functionality but I could see splurging on some thicker more rubbery ones if one sees fit. They all probably work pretty good and they all dodge around the pedals more or less for fear of legal ramifications so other than some minute differences here and there I really don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

The Husky Liners cover the entire dead pedal area and extend well above the (3) pedals.
Happy with them so far and curious to see how well they protect and clean up this winter.

Never used the contour. I had seen some reviews and wasn't a fan on how they looked. I think they went up over the door sills. But the weatherbeaters are tough, this and I'm happy with my purchase. Got them for 160 from autoanything.

I just got a price of about US $260.00 + shipping (front & rear mats) to Canada. I think these might be price prohibitive! WeatherTech is quoting $269.00 Canadian, shipping included. I think I'm getting another set of WeatherTech's

These mats completely cover under the gas pedal, fit perfect and are $80 (front only). My wife is very happy with them. SMARTLINER floor mats for 2017 2018 Jeep Compass on Amazon (cant post link yet).

looking to get the rear liner and SMARTLINER Has two listed. One for "top deck position" and "Middle or lower" deck position. I don't have the spare tire so I sometimes move it (depending on cargo).

it looks like there is just a notch cut out of one, does anyone have these? How does weathertech brand deal with this difference?
