What is the best kind of mats for our trucks? My factory ones suck and my grey carpet is going down hill fast..
Glad to see you called them on this..it is part of the package that you paid forRazorback said:I learned more about floormats than I wanted to. ?My Z66 did not have the floor mats when I picked it up. ?The dealer said they would order them for me. ?After waiting two weeks, I received the standard carpet version. ?I agree that these are not up to the task of keeping the carpet clean and do not look like they will last long. ?
When I called them on it, they claimed that according to my VIN number, these are the ones I should have. ?They kept sticking to this story even though "Aggressive Floormats with Yellow Chevy Bowtie" were identified right on the sticker! ?Its not like I negotiated for free mats to be thrown in with the deal.
I finally got them to order the correct mats, only to find out (by my calling them to check after delivery date had passed) that the sales manager had cancelled the order because they had "already taken care of me".
After three more weeks, I finally convinced them I wasn't trying to scam them out of upgraded mats and they delivered the correct mats.
In summary, the rubber mats are a significant improvement over the carpet, but even then, I agree they are still a little too small.
The Z71/Z66 rubber mats are great, but I wanted to cover more. I ended up getting a set of Black Armor mats. They are relatively thin, flexible, and have a high lip to hold in melting snow. The back seat runner goes the whole width, covering the center "hump". The best part is that they conform exactly to the floor contours, and the thick factory rubber mats fit inside very well.Razorback said:In summary, the rubber mats are a significant improvement over the carpet, but even then, I agree they are still a little too small.
BlackJack said:What about those Catch-All ?X-Treme mats. ?They mold completely around the floor with a lip as well. ?
They look pretty good. ?Gotta find a link to a picture to post here.
