Front mats, Rubber or fabric

Depends upon what you are trying to do. If you are just trying to replace floor mats, then those mats could be fine. If you are looking for better sound insulation, there are better options. The Wright Off Road mats marketed through Exmoor Trim and sold by many of the usual suspects have a great rep, but $$.

The best ones are the heavy duty rubber ones made for the Soft Tops... But, they are stupid expensive at RN, AB or any where you may be able to find them. I would run by a flooring store and see if you can get some rubberized floor material, made for a home gym and cut that to fit. Then you can cut the top 4" off a cheap $7 rubber WalMart mat and not care when if it wears out. I did this in my RR and my 90. IMO, the LR genuine rubber mats (non-heavy duty) wear out very, very fast.

Excellent idea. I actually have some hockey rink rubber flooring I can get a hold off. I could even put cheap fabric mats over that and not care if they get ruined. Thanks.

Tractor Supply sells 1/2 size stall matting for about $20. They are 1/2" thick and are super for floor mats. Took about 20 min to pattern and cut them out. You will not wear these out.

Ben -- I have a pair of heavy duty genuine mats that I'm not using... i'll have to check the condition, as they were like-new when I originally took them out of the truck, but I think storing them may have taken a little toll (i think there is a tear in one of them).

I'm about 20 minutes from NYC as well if you want to pick them up... let me know if you're interested and I can dig them up and take a pic and you can make me an offer.

Check with Stephen Peters ("SafariResto"), he was going to be getting a bunch of the heavy duty NOS mats with the sound insulation on the back. I got a pair from him that were brand new (and hard to find!).

If I do go that route I will post. Called "horse stall matting" I believe. looks similar to hockey rink rubber flooring, but not as thick.

I have a shoemaker that does stitch work for pretty cheap so was going to ask him charges for trimming down an aftermarket fabric mat that is oversized, then I would put the rubber stall matting or gym matting underneath it for insulation.

Thanks Jason, I have left Stephen two voicemails. I will try again tomorrow. Either way I am most likely going to line with the rubber mats underneath. I would just pull the fabric mats in the snow.

Thanks everyone for the help and input. Great ideas on here.
