Getting Road Trip Ready
The Ultimate in Vehicle Protection
Premium Protection and Style – perfectly matches the contours of your vehicle with indestructible strength and a soft, comfortable cushion
In preparation for our upcoming road trip (our first family vacation in 9 years), we have been working at getting the truck ready including replacing our inexpensive front floor liners with new quality liners from Husky Liners.
When shopping for floor mats for your vehicle, there are some important things to keep in mind. Not all floor mats are made equally. The standard factory floor mats are generally just a “starter” mat, and are not made to last, and they definitely do not offer the same protection as a premium quality mat. They are of inexpensive quality, and definitely not sufficient enough for our Canadian winters when snow is an issue.
We wanted heavy duty floor mats that are made specifically for our Dodge Ram 1500, and not a one-fits-all sort of mat. We also wanted a mat that would be easy to install, and easy to remove for cleaning, and that would stand up to the Canadian weather extremes (both in regards to rain/mud and snow and ice). Having a mat that also is anti-slip (and won’t move around underfoot) is a huge added benefit as the muck will stay in the mat and not on the truck’s carpeting.
We decided on X-act Contour floor liners for our truck because they are not only stylish, but they have premium protection at a competitive price. These heavy duty mats are made to last and will help keep water, snow, mud, spills and other messes off the carpet (which can be expensive and difficult to clean). The extra thick driver’s heel pad will keep Chris’ feet out of the muck and cushioned. Husky Liners are made with an exclusive elastomeric material which can withstand a lot of stuff including oil, gas and even battery acid!
What makes X-act Contour liners a better liner?
- made to perfectly match the contours of your truck or SUV
- indestructible strength, with a soft and comfortable cushion
- high quality look that is visually appealing
X-act Contour Mat Features:
- Their FormFit Design™ process perfectly forms each liner to the detailed contours of your specific vehicle (in our case a Dodge Ram 1500). These are not a universal, one-fits-all kind of mats.
- Their patented FormFit Edge™ is a raised ridge running along the door jam that protects your truck from mud, snow and rain.
- With the perfect balance of softness and strength, their rubberized DuraGrip™ material has been designed to be not only strong, but comfortable as well.
- The StayPut Cleats™ help keep your liner from shifting around underfoot, and work whether you have vinyl or carpets in your truck.
- The X-act Contour® folds and molds for easy installation, removal and cleaning.
These are the nicest floor mats we have ever had, and we feel confident they will last as long as we have our truck (and will, in all likelihood, outlive the truck). Installation was easy, they look great, and the grooves are nice and deep. These are a million times better than the factory ones that we were using, and they are going to make a huge difference in helping to keep the truck floors clean.
Husky Liners are easy to order. With their vehicle finder, you are able to find the products that are made specifically for your truck or SUV. PDF and Video installation instructions are also included on their website, making it a very user-friendly website. Shipping is free within the Contiguous United States. Shipping to Canada is $15 per item.
Husky Liners X-act Contour Liners are guaranteed for LIFE. They are guaranteed not to crack, break or tear under normal use. That said, you probably shouldn’t let your dog chew the liners (because that isn’t guaranteed under their warranty).
Husky Liners isn’t just about floor liners either. They have a myriad of products to help protect your truck and improve your storage space! Products for a Dodge Ram 1500 include:
- Floor mats & liners
- Mud flaps & guards
- Wheel Well guards
- Fender flares
- Ball mounts
- 5th wheel tailgate
