      I ordered mine with the rails, also with the all-weather mats. I would be surprised if they didn't come in the back and the dealer has to do it, but that's pure speculation on my part. I'll have to ask if it ever arrives :rant:

      Mine had the 'All Weather' mats in it and I traded them for the OEM cargo liner and then installed the Husky floor liners. Being in Ontario, I think those Husky liners will perform better than the OEM ones. Much more coverage.

      Those look quite similar to the tray style ones I noticed online today through Ford (not sure why they don't show up when you're configuring the darn thing online, I would have bought them instead)

      You'll notice that the Husky front liners cover the carpeted area over to the door sill and the entire foot rest. Something that not even WeatherTech does.

      For the record I'm also in Ontario, but not in the "snow (<- should have been snow-belt but got cut off)
      Is the cargo liner rigid? I wonder how easily you can roll it or set it aside if you need to make use of the third row seating. I like the cargo liner because we have two big dogs, but I also may end up needing the seats for human passengers...

      We got the cargo-liner included in the deal for free, and although it'll do fine for our use, i doubt it's thick and strong enough for dogs. You need much heavier material then fords liner is made of.

      Is it a hard shell or soft like floor mats? Doesn't need to be too strong, we keep their nails pretty well clipped. I'm more concerned about the dog hair. Haha guess this is a bit off topic :drunk:

      Not soft like floor mats, but It's thin and flimsy. Not a hard shell at all. It looks tougher and sturdier in pictures then it is. I believe the dogs nails, trimmed or not, will make a mess of it in a hurry. Ask the dealer if they'll bring one in for you to look at with no obligation to buy.

      The liner is quite flexible. In fact it comes rolled up in a shipping box. Although I haven't done it, others have said it easily rolls up and can be stored in the rear of the Explorer. My heaviest dog is around 37-39 pounds and has not left as much as a scratch on the liner. She was initially 64 pounds when I got her from the rescue organization.

      We have a 50 lb border collie and a 60 lb golden retriever, both of whom leave more hair than you'd think is possible... they don't tend to scratch things up though. I like that the OEM liner says "Explorer"... I know it's dorky but I really like factory parts for that reason. My main concern is keeping dog hair off the carpet. I have to say I love how helpful you guys all are, this forum is great! Thanks so much to everyone for making this such a great and welcoming experience for my first Ford.

      Speaking about hair, one thing I found out the hard way is don't put your rear windows down after just picking the dogs up from the groomer! ;)

      I believe the dealer installed mine even though factory ordered them..., they also installed mud flaps even though factory ordered them as well....

      So wait... the online guide for cotus says that once you have a VIN the vehicle is scheduled for production... but I don't see a scheduled build date in cotus (upper left hand corner is where it says it should be). Am I missing something?

      Chase: good luck picking up your truck today, post pics if you can :)
