    I just acquired a Husky liner for the back of my 2013 XLT with the 3rd row folded down.

    Is it a problem to roll it up if I need to pop up the 3rd row seats and then stash it behind the 3rd row?

    I can't say for sure but if it is shipped the way the other liners are than it likely arrived rolled up in a box to start with. It may take a little while to flatten out again. When I received my OEM cargo liner it was rolled up in a box and after laying it out on the floor for a couple days it was fine. Try it and see.

    Peter, I was excited to see the grey liners didn't have the pop tabs. The problem I ran into with my weather techs is my driveway is on enough of an angle that the water/salt gets through the tabs. I have so much crusted salt under the drivers seat.

    Do the huskys fornthe EX have the tabs? It's hard to tell on the site? (17 model)

    Husky over third set of seats. Weather tech in floors first and second.

    The front Husky liners I ordered for my 2017 have the tabs that pop onto the OEM tabs in the carpet. They are a sealer tab so nothing will leak through.

    Thank you. From the pictures on the site it looked like the weatherbeaters had the tabs but the x act fit had indentations(or reversed). Yours are the x-act fit?

    Mine are the Weatherbeaters. I don't think the X-Act Contours will fit a 2013. It seems they are for the newer models, 2015 +.

    sorry for reviving an old thread but still haven't pulled the trigger for my 17 sport as the second row fit is horrible.too much material at the hump.
    anyway I need fronts bad and wondering since it has been a while, has anyone got the x-act contours for a 17 sport? if so how the fit. can you snap a pic so I can see the rise at the sill as well (does it cover the explorer kick plate?)

    Looking at the video I find it difficult to tell if it goes over to the sill. I don't think it does.

    They don't go over the sills as you'd catch your foot on it every-time.

    The Woman doesn't like how slippery the Weathertechs are in my truck and says she can't drive it with heels/dress shoes on. Are the Huskys better in this regard? We have a 2017 Sport and almost four year old twins, so everything needs to be covered. :)

    I did a 'Search' in this thread and including yours there are 4 posts about "slippery" and they all relate to WeatherTech. Personally I've never noticed it being an issue with the Huskys I've always used but then I don't wear "heels".;)

    The Husky can be "slick" when wet , not really slippery ... but with heels/hard sole shoes it probably feels "worse" at first.

    Before I purchased a set for my 2016 sport off Amazon I contacted Husky regarding the changes to there front matts in case there response helps anyone.



    "In 2017 Ford added a floor mat retaining post to the passenger side floor pan of the Explorer. Part #13761 has a small raised area directly over the newly added post so that the liner will set flat over the top it. If you put the same 13761 liner in a 2015 or 2016 model, it will fit too as the accommodation for the post is very small and it does not affect the fit in these earlier models. However, the passenger side liner of set 13761 might not completely set flat over the post if you installed it in a 2017 model.

    So I'm in same situation as a lot of you-Weathertech or Huskyliner. Can someone post pics of both, particularly the area where the 2nd and 3rd rows meet. Wanted to see how much carpet exposed with weathertech, and how the huskys fit together in this area.

    If you want maximum coverage for the front then it really is no contest. Husky wins hands down. They cover the carpeted area right over to the door sill and they cover the whole 'dead pedal'.
    As for the 2nd row you could specify 'with or without 2nd row console'. I believe someone posted a picture showing the exposed carpeted area. You can try using the 'Search' feature to find it and other pictures of the 2 liners. I don't think that either 2nd row liners cover the area completely.

    I have pictures of 2nd row liner but not of the 3rd row as those are always folded. Don't have them on this laptop though. Found this using "Search";
