Floor mats

Is there a company that makes a quality floor mat that fits our trucks? I've tried a couple off-the-shelf sets, but they all fray within a couple weeks.

Re: Floor mats

I've got mats from ACC - not great but better than others I've seen https://www.accmats.com/commerce/197...r/Floor%20Mat/

Would not recommend the ACC mats for regular use in snow or mud. LMC lists a high hump rubber mat for pickups that could be adapted I'll bet.

Re: Floor mats

I kind of think coco mats would be cool for a vintage look. http://www.roadworksauto.com/coco/cocomats.htm

Re: Floor mats

This mat seems pretty "fitting" for a K5 Blazer.

Re: Floor mats

I like those Blazer mats ! Are they old stock or are they still available new?

Re: Floor mats

Mine are vintage "nos" ones I bought recently from a member here - will look great in the blue blazer with parchment interior and black carpet per Highlander trim package. I don't believe these are still available - I've kept an eye out for a while on eBay chasing a period correct looking set and never saw these. Yosemite Sam ones can still be had.

I have to admit those floor mats do share quite a resemblance to the logo below. Maybe I'd better find a set with a Canadian flag or something ! LOL

Re: Floor mats

I was able to find a supplier up here for ACC carpets, and just 2 front mats will be around $150 US. I dunno, but that seems a bit extreme to me. I think I'll keep shopping around because I really don't need them till spring.

Re: Floor mats

The ACC mats aren't too bad but they are prone to sliding across the carpet and won't collect a puddle like weather tech mats will.

Are those in your picture designed to fit our Blazers, or are they for something else? Are they made by Weather Tech? That's exactly what I want but in black, and best part is they don't have carpet.
I only thought the Weather Tech mats were those big thick fitted ones you see on newer vehicles, and not thin like the ones in your picture.

Re: Floor mats

I should know this but I forgot. My recollection is these mats are designed for our Blazers/pickups and are ACC not weather tech. To my knowledge, weather tech does not have mats fitted for our k5s. As an aside, I have weather tech mats in my 4Runner and have been very happy.
