There is probably no other vehicle that gets so dirty, so often, as a Wrangler. It’s made for mud, dirt, and general messiness. But if you’re showing sympathy for your floor we understand – some people have a heart. So that’s why getting a good set of floor mats can put your conscience to rest.
There are several heavy-duty options for Jeep owners to ease the mistreatment of their floors. You can use universal cutouts or mats specifically tailored to your vehicle.
The tiny bugs that were happily living in your floors will be upset when they get slapped on the head with one of the heavy-duty options available! We took a look at the popular models and found the ones that checked all the boxes of durability, overall quality, and price.
Here are the best floor mats for Jeep Wrangler JKs:
Rugged Ridge Floor Mats
Fit: 2007-2018 4 door Jeep Wrangler JK/JKU
These Rugged Ridge mats are a great way for you to say no to the dirt. They’re thick, well-made by a reputable brand, and they’re not that expensive. A single car detail costs more than these – we.. unfortunately know how much those cost(damn you Dr. Pepper).
They’re made for four door models of Wrangler and have a chevron pattern to give you some good traction in the slipperiest of slippy situations. If you get em’ muddy you don’t have to worry about it cause it’ll wash right out.
Some mats get people annoyed because mud slips underneath a lower-quality one. But these are heavy, they’ll seal to your floor so you won’t have to worry in the same way you would about cheaper brands. You pay a little more – yeah that’s true, but it’s the little things that make a good purchase and this keeping stuck to your floor in times of need is a little-big thing.
Husky Liners Front Floor Liners
Fit: 2007-2018 2 or 4 door Jeep Wrangler
The Husky Liners brand has a solution for Jeep owners in 2 or 4 door Wranglers. If you have a 4 door, these won’t cover the back seats but for most people, the two front seats are the ones getting dirty in the first place.
They’re mostly smooth with an interesting design where you put your feet to “pool” dirt and other stuff you don’t want hanging on. They use the standard hooks that your Jeep has to keep them secured.
In terms of price, these are on the higher end of the quality scale and so the price goes up with that. You’ll pay a good amount for just getting two mats. But if you prefer Husky Liners to other brands it might be worth it.
These are flexible. They aren’t super hard unbendable pieces of rubber like some other options on the market. You can peel one of these back with ease. They have lips at the end, if you look at the product picture you might think that they’re angled downwards but that’s not the case. If you are looking for a long lasting durable option for your Jeep – these are up there with the best of them.
OxGord 4pc Rubber Floor Mats Universal Fit
Fit: Universal Fit – All Jeep Wranglers
The OxGord 4 piece rubber mat set has a huge advantage compared to competitors, and that’s price. You won’t have a fit nearly as good as something made specifically for your Jeep, but you will have a lot more money in your pocket than the other options give you.
So with the shortcomings of these come the savings. OxGord has a 4 piece set and they measure 18 inches wide and 28 inches in length. If you don’t like the universal design you can cut these until they do fit.
They’re made of a flexible rubber compound and are waterproof. You can hose these down and let them dry. The one knock on these is that when you get them you’ll have to let them air out for a day or two, the rubber smell can be a bit pungent – lasting nearly two weeks in some cases.
Rough Country Heavy Duty Floor Mats
Fit: 2014-2018 4 Door Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited
The Rough Country heavy duty floor mats are made specifically for a Wrangler Unlimited between 2014 and 2018. So if you don’t have that model these won’t work, but if you do they’re a great heavy-duty option.
But, you’ll pay for it. Rough country is a well-known brand that makes quality products but this price is our one knock on the item. Everything else is above and beyond quality wise. Their weight, design, and protectiveness are second to none.
We do like that these are backed by a lifetime replacement warranty. If they should crack or show any unusual wear – you’re covered.
Keeping your Wrangler looking pretty is a hard job for any owner. It gets used and abused and that’s where it shines, so finding an option to stop the bleeding can take a bit of looking. For us, we think the Rugged Ridge mats offer the best combination of durability and quality when you factor in their price. Making them the number one choice.
But, if you’re looking to save money then a universal mat could work. You just won’t have the same fit as if something is made specifically for your Jeep. You’ll save a lot of money though, so we could see it being worth it for the trade-off.
Whatever you choose, let us know! And let us know if you are happy with them after some use.
Happy driving 🙂
