Re: Floor mats

The mats that came in the early years were defiantly thicker and fitting for the FJ.

The retainer hooks at the back of the mats....not so good on longevity. They are no longer available through Toyota unless you find a dealer that has some laying around.

Re: Floor mats

The mats that came with my 07 are still super sturdy. When I spray them down, they still look new. But like @mikey said, the hooks are trash. I still have the passenger side one, but the driver's side is long gone. One of these days I'll either fabricate a metal hook to replace the broken plastic one, or maybe a strip of Velcro to keep the mat from sliding around on me.

Re: Floor mats

Thanks everyone, I'm probably going to go the weathertech route. I'm missing most of the clips so I need to look into that

Re: Floor mats

Another +1 on the Weathertechs. All of my clips are long gone but I havent had any issue with the Weathertech ones sliding around or anuthing due to the exact fit.

I actually found a 07 set of the OEM ones locally for 100 I am going to grab those. They look so different than newer OEM ones

Question Re: Floor mats

The consensus seems to be that the 1st gen are better/sturdier/shinier, so does anyone know when the lesser floor mats were introduced?

Was it '08, or not until the overall re-design in 2011?

I've got a 2012 and am getting floor mat envy...

I need some '07 floor mats. Stat!

Re: Floor mats

What about spraying plasti dip on the floor pan and the back of the mat? I used some on the grip of a pistol and it worked great and hasn't really worn off after 2 years.

Re: Floor mats

+1 on Weathertech. Laser measured Floor Liners fit perfectly (does need clips, easily found on eBay) and hold water, dirt, mud, you name it. Have them in front, back and rear cargo. Expensive but worth every penny. Mine are just as rugged now as they were 9 years ago. Highly recommend!

Re: Floor mats

I'm weirdly jealous of you people who've had your FJ's for years. I've had mine for two months and I have NO idea how I'd live without it. I think back over the years and think "Man, that would have been easier in the FJ."



Sorry, back to the mat topic please.
