Options are to go with an official one, i.e. $$$ or something else. Go to the vender area. My recall is a real heavy weight rubber cargo mat was over $250.
I used an industrial carpet bought from COSTCO for $16.00. I cut it to shape so it fits perfectly.
There is one piece on the bottom of my tub.
With the pieces left over, I fitted out the front wheel wells.
I need a second piece for the rear tub area above the wheels but have not decided to carpet that yet.
If I can find the picture I posted a coiple of months back (do a treat search) I'll post it.

I was in Sportsmans Warehouse last week and they had DeeZee (spelling?) truck bed mats for $50 they were Heavy Duty reinforced rubber. They were for a stepside pickup so they would have to be trimmed to 36" X 48"

The SW mat from RN is like 250 if I remember correctly. I was going to replcae my OEM, which is nice still but has a small tear, but got huge sticker shock when I saw the price...

I went with the OEM from Rovers Down South, and it cost $250. It's pretty much a waste...totally not worth those $$$. Buy something else, and cut it to fit. Save a couple hundred.

Not sure...but I had to cut mine to get it to fit my SW. Downside of that, it removed the lip they'd created to keep liquids from overflowing...so pretty much, I had to cut off the only unique part of the mat to fit it...and all that for $250! Awesome. ;o

Just did a search for help installing a Southdown steering guard ( I do not have the bolts so need to know what size/strength to use) and I saw an old post by ART for discountbritishparts.com and they have a Defender tub mat for $175.00
Lowest price I have seen so far.
