So it seems no matter where you get these, they are dried out and split easily...any better alternatives? I have a dried out torn one now so would make no sense to pay $200+ for another.

How split is it? Only along the seam? You can try to experiment with the roofing adhesive I was talking about on the other page. Take the mat out, lay it flat with the back facing you, lay the adhesive material down in a single 6" wide strip down the seams, or get some rubber pond liner and a strong adhesive and run the adhesive down either side of the seams and then lay the pond liner down on top of it. It should help keep it together, and you may not really be able to tell once you flip it back over.

Mine is torn all the way down on the fender well sides front to back on left and right side. It is just drooping and hanging now. Plus I don't think it could fade anymore. I will just replace and hope I get one that is not dried out.

I wouldn't say they come dried out. It's just they are thin on the seams. Next one I will run duct tape on the back along the seams.

A lot of folks recommend going a different route unless you don't use the loadspace for hauling much.
I've been meaning on doing the same and am wondering if its better to buy the OEM ST and cut it for the SW or the Exmoor 3 piece kit, anyone have any input on the Exmoor kit?

For a new mat from RN, I ran Gorilla tape on the backside of the seams (to reinforce) and a healthy bead of black silicone caulk around the perimeter (attempt to keep it dry and "glued" down) and a few lines on the verticals (attempt to keep the weight off the seam). So far so good, but it has only been a year.

Yeah it definitely needs something on those seams - Gorilla tape is probably a good choice as well and definitely cheaper than roof adhesive sheets.

Go to your local Tractor Supply. Out in the yard area they have what are called "stall mats", which are thick sheets made of recycled rubber. Get one that's 4x6 and trim it to fit the rear deck of your truck. It will cost you like $45 and you will never have to be worried about the load space again. It won't have a spiffy logo molded in, tho....

As Bill just said... Go to your local farm and ranch store.. look for Stall Matting.

Here is a link to a place with a standard 4' x 6' x 1" thick piece... $24.

http://www.therubberman.com/ortho-foam-stall-pad.html

Since you are in Denver, just go to Murdoch's on Santa Fe.. just south of the 470.

This is what I've used for 20yrs. Cheap and You can NOT kill it... it's designed for horses to STAND on.

only downside is that you don't have your wheel wells covered with one solid piece. I've always used the thinner stuff that they have on rolls and just have it UNDER the big center piece to hold everything in place.

Link mat. Doesn't trap moisture, and if it rains on your camping gear with the top off, your camping gear isn't sitting in water.

I put black gorilla tape on the seams of my 90s mat where it was tearing and it held together fine maybe i should run some on the back of the new mat to keep it from tearing

I was looking at that Exmoor 3 piece acoustic loadspace mat, my only reservation was that it looked unfinished/rough on the trail edge that faces the rear door. I would love to see a pic from someone whos installed one.

If you are up for an non-LR option that is inexpensive, kills road noise and dampens panel vibration, try a $39 Tractor Supply stall mat. This thing is 3/4" thick rubber and bullet proof (or at least resistant...).

Sam did you get your rear mat in from that dealer in Michigan? How did it look?

Matt, I did not. Im on the fence between this mat and the Exmoor. I'll do up the rest of the trucks interior including the front Exmoor matting kit and then decide.

So I tore this old piece of shit out yesterday, and have decided I want a OEM mat just like I had. Anyone bought one of these recently, as in the last few months from BP or RN that can confirm that they got a good one, not dried out? Wanting to place order for mat soon. Thanks in advance.

Cut off the sides and clean up the base, and you could probabl sell that remaining piece for $20+ shipping. It's incredible the things people will buy here.

They are never dried out. These things are still made. Not old stock. The issue seems that whoever makes them for rover now doesn't make them to the same high standards as they used to be. The sides typically split after a few months. Just run tape down the back and it will hold better.

Another option is the single piece Exmoor load space mat:
