thats a good assessment. Yes, they are a bit stiffer for sure.Those pics look good, much better fitment than the set of WT "laser molded" I had in my 2014 F150 for many years.
Here's my unsolicited opinion of comparison between the Ford rubber and these: (I have the badlands interior, and prefer the Ford's in this application.)
Pro's for WT: Better coverage than the ford rubber, looks to be better option for those with carpet due to high sides and rigidity (can hold liquid)
I'll call cost a draw, you get more material with the WT's, but they do appear to cost more.
Cons for WT vs Ford rubber: The texture will hold mud and dirt stains no matter what you clean/scrub them with. The Ford one's clean up very quickly and easily as they are smooth (but not slippery) I tested this a few weeks ago with a serious load of South Carolina sand/clay/mud and 4 dudes on a week long back country fishing trip. Dirt was EVERYWHERE, but it all cleaned up perfectly.
Neither pro/con but something to think about:
The WT's are more rigid, removing them from the vehicle when full of dirt/mud/goo may be tricky. Fords can be kind of folded up to contain the mess while you finagle them out of the truck. Most people will probably vacuum the big chunks then remove them to clean so this probably doesn't matter.
The rear is one piece that runs all the way across. Hasn’t been an issue yet.Never take the doors off. I personally don't use them, but every work vehicle I've been assigned has had Weathertechs put in them(11 Charger, 15 Ram, 17 Ram). They slide around and won't stay in place. I always remove them.
Not sure if you mean the factory bronco liners, but there were some people on here that posted they were kinda cheap and thin.I'm kind of torn. I have the Ford accessory mats coming with my Bronco, but I feel they may not have the same coverage as the Husky or Weather tech liners. I'm also not sure which to go with for the cargo liner. I thought about getting the Bronco one but it dosn't have slots for the tiedowns. The Husky cargo liner does and it looks like the weather tech doesn't. What are your thoughts on this? Thanks.
Where’d you get the rears for the vinyl flooring? On weathertech’s website I only see the fronts as available for vinyl.The rears are now installed. Again, absolutely perfect fitment! Complete one piece coverage all the way across the full width, up and over the hump as well.
Get the factory matsNow that my Bronco is here I need to make a decision on mats. The Weathertech is now showing available for 2 door, manual, and vinyl floor. Husky is only showing installation over carpet, so that may not work for me. I want the additional coverage over the factory liners.
I have these and love ‘emI couldn’t take it anymore. Saying one of the three mat types is better than the other is a total opinion. The ford mats aren’t “thin or cheap” feeling. They hold more than enough slush and mud too. I’ve included pictures for comparison since no one else has. As for the single rear mat. That’s a gimmick. It just makes it a bigger pain in the ass to take out. Like the two piece design. Only thing on the WT I like is the sill plate flange. Enjoy the pics peeps. I’ve used both ford and WT liners. I like the fords for there flexibility and they typically stay put better. Coverage over the carpet is more than adequate as well
