So I'm in the “armoring” phase with my brand new Jeep, first PPF and now floormats. I really liked

the look of the Jeep all-weather floormats (Mopar# 82215203AE) with the red ‘JEEP’ logo and the topography contours, but they don’t protect as much of the floor as the WeatherTech FloorLiner. I purchased the WeatherTech FloorLiner (part# 441313-1-2) $179.90 and the WeatherTech Cargo/Trunk Liner (part# 401107) $109.85. The fit is near flawless, it follows every curve and nook, and it goes up much higher on the sides than the Mopar mats giving better coverage. I have a Firecracker Red 392 so I didn’t mind the red WeatherTech logo, but I wanted it look a bit more custom to the 392. So I ordered custom gel domed decal inserts to replace for the WeatherTech logo decals. I went with the numbers ‘392’ in Red with bronze outline on a black background. It was $53.70 total for 5 decals including shipping from DesignDealerDecals on etsy. He said he could create any design, it took about 2 weeks. The only issue is the adhesive on the back is very weak so I cut some 3M 300L double sided adhesive film to attach it securely.

For the door sill guards, I liked the protection both the Rugged Ridge and the Quadratec guards provide, but I didn’t like the way both designs interfere with the area where the lower door weather seals mate with the door frame. I read about some water intrusion issues in this post. So even

though they protect a smaller area I went with the OEM Jeep Door Sill Guards (Mopar# 82215394) they list for $93.90 but with the 15% off discount from the Mopar App, it came to $79.80 at my local dealer. Wanting to make it a little more interesting I added Firecracker Red cut vinyl stickers from etsy, they were perfectly cut and had duplicates, but the adhesive on the vinyl was very weak. So yet again I turned to 3M, I tried Super 90 spray adhesive but it just melted the vinyl so I used General Purpose 45 spray adhesive and just painted it on the raised letters of the sill guards, kinda like

doing gold leaf, I also lightly sanded the plastic to help with grip. I saw on another post where someone used Xpel black universal door sill guard to cover the area above the Mopar door sill guards. It is a cool idea but I wanted to keep the red background, so I asked my PPF guy to use a little piece of clear STEK film to protect that upper area. Just wanted to share some small ideas on customizing your 392.

I was looking into the same product, WeatherTech FloorLiner (part# 441313-1-2), BUT Amazon and weathertech sites have bad reviews regarding the driver side mat. Overall not tall wide enough and there's a gap between the mat and the side of the car.

Hey @Noway

Personally I think the fit is pretty good. ;)

Does look good. Not sure if the fit was redone or the reviwers were drunk but you can read the reviews yourself. The one star were mostly about driver side fit. Again, I see nothing wrong
 
I took one more picture focused on the driver side, there is a small gap if you look straight down maybe that's what the reviews were talking about. About ¼ inch if that, mostly at the back it is tight up against the side as you go forward where your feet (and mud) are.

So full disclosure... 😕 I ended up removing the "Wrangler" door sill guards today. After living with them for a few days I kinda liked the way it looked without them. And the red Vinyl decals I got off etsy looked kinda cheap so that didn't help things. Also, when I had the Paint Protection Film done, they wrapped the sill areas all the way up to the door frame edge then they wrapped the top with another strip of film down to the spot welds. That basically covers anywhere the paint might get damaged. So to remove the OEM Jeep Door Sill Guards, I used a hair dryer to get them warm and a trim removal tool to get them started. Once they were up a little bit they came right off with no damage done. Here is a photo with them removed the PPF'd area is in blue. Might be worth doing if someone is having PPF done.

A little off topic, but which side steps do you have installed in this photo?
 
How are the backseat mats? @Turboencabulator These look much nicer than factory ones.
Hey @NeoLeo. I have been very happy with the WeatherTech mats. The backseat mat is just one big mat that covers the whole back floor. The Mopar All-weather after market backseat mat is actually 2 parts that snaps together in the middle. I prefer this one-piece design. There is no WeatherTech logo back there so I couldn't swap it out for a 392 emblem. All the WeatherTech stuff is very well molded, I feel like they fit the trim to within ¼" or less, not perfect, but very functional. The majority of the mud/dirt is all captured by the 4 mats (driver, pax, backseat, cargo) so to me this is an essential "mod".

Love this so much I am wanting to do this. So cool. Thanks for sharing. I'm definitely going to try to get my floor mat decals changed.
