Mats for tow vehicle - moulded 3D TPE versus rubber


Hello all

About to buy new mats for the LC100, looking at the moulded TPE ones because they have more coverage than rubber.  Anyone have any experience with them - durability, easy to clean etc?

Here are some:

Cheers

I use R M Williams mats (daughter in law works there) in Patrol, they are formed to collect grass, stone, debris, etc - They can be lifted out and rubbish is contained within the walled mats - I have seen similar at Super Cheap.

 I use the Supercheap/AutoPro cheapies.

Do the job & easy to empty/clean.

I have been using Road Gear floor mats, their 4WD style. See the link below.

https://www.roadgear.com.au/

Relatively low cost. Many retail auto stores sell them.

My mats are about 15 years old and still very serviceable. I have the "Outback Deep Dish" style but there are other styles.

The mats are dished and able to hold dirt and water. I like the water holding ability as often i use a boat while wearing neoprene dive boots. Those boots get soaked at a boat ramp and release water as I get back in the vehicle to drive. Therefore a pool of salt water on the driver's floor. But careful removal of the dished mat can mean the tide can be released without a soaked floor. If you want complete waterproof, make sure any of those small holes with thin plastic threads are well glued/sealed.

i attached a photo of my driver's side mat. Not sure why my attached pic ended with the particular orientation. The "ROAD GEAR" badge faces the driver's seat. A part of the brake pedal is visible at the opposite end to the "ROAD GEAR" badge.

 Ive been using a similar mat in the patrol for way in excess of 10 years.  They collect everything and stays within the mat when taking out to clean. The best type IMO
