My FJ came with carpet mats. Plenty of snow and mud here so I'm thinking of switching to rubber. Any pros or cons either way? Do we have a supporting vendor that deals in OEM mats or is that a direct from a dealer or Ebay thing?

I have the old discontinued rubber mats and they are nice. They hold a lot of melted snow and mud. I've used the Husky brand on other vehicles and they were good.

As for a vendor, check out TRDparts4u.com and member Wilson who is the man there. He'll probably be along soon to say Hi.

Mine came with the factory rubber mats, they made it through 5 nasty winters in Canada and held up very well and still look good today. No experience with the Husky liners.

No-go for carpet mats in snow and mud! :rocker: its hard to even give the FJ carpet mats away!

Rubber is only way to go. I love the fact that there is no cloth or carpet in a stock FJ other than the weather resistant seats. I pretty much clean the entire inside of my truck with a wet microfiber towel, including the seats.....and I have an eternally filthy dog that rolls in the dirt all day.

Seriously, I wouldn't keep the carpet mats. You are just asking for stains and they will wear out long before the factory rubbers, no experience with the Husky brand altho they look hefty. Wait, what'd I say?!?:lol:

Carpet mats = useless.
My stock rubber cargo mat is dying a quick death with sliding things in and out. The other aftermarket ones may be more durable. I have no complaints with the rest of my rubber mats though. (all stock)
:cheers:

Mine came with the rubber mats so I am sticking with them. If it had come with the carpet I think I would have moved to the Husky rubber mats.

Replace the carpets before it starts to snow here, they just don't work here. Either Weathertech or Husky are so much better.

I would get some sort of rubber. My carpet ones did well with a bit of mud recently. They still let a lot of dirt under them. I just power washed them off and they look like new again.

I like the carpet ones for long trips as I am usually in flip-flops with my heel down on the floor.

The first "mod" I did was to order the newer style Toyota FJ Rubber lock down mats and retire the new carpet ones - anyone want them pm me and pay shipping, they are yours. My driveway is rock and mud, which doesn't mix with carpet.

I would stick with the rubber mats, better at holding the mud and water. :bigthumb:
