I ordered the rear cargo mat for my JLUR with cloth seats. After I ordered it, I happened to look in the rear cargo area and it never occurred to me that the cloth seats do not come with the trench cover but the leather seats have the trench cover. Yes, it is my fault for never bothering to pay attention to it but why would it come with leather and not cloth seats. I am going to try to make a trench cover myself and get the mat to work. This is also an information post to all that ordered their JL with cloth seats. Hopefully they will have an aftermarket part coming out soon.

Thanks for the heads up. Please keep us posted on how/what you will use to make this trench cover.

Dang. I ordered a JLUR with cloth and now I’m really bummed over this. My dog has real problems with the trench in my last JKUs and thought the rubis “premium cloth seats” would have the cover.

First off road pages, now this. Seems like the longer it takes to get shipped to me the more stuff will be missing.

I also ordered the cloth seats on my Rubicon assuming that there would trench cover. I want to add a trench cover and I will watching this thread for options to add a Mopar trench cover.

I can confirm, The cloth seats on my Sahara do not have this Trench cover. I didn't look at a leather seated one so I didn't even know this thing existed until now.

I searched all of youtube to find a video and sure enough, I found a Rubi with cloth seats, no cover.

I am in the same boat. I have the cargo mats sitting in my garage as my JL hasn't shown up yet.

However, what are we supposed to do regarding this?

Is there a MOPAR gap cover we have to purchase?

I was able to cancel my order of the cargo mat and ordered the dirty dog cargo liner that just became available through quadratec.

On a four door when you fold the rear seats down there is a gap between the cargo area and where the seats are bolted in. This gap cover goes over that area so you have a smooth transition from cargo area to back of folded seat.

I almost upgraded to the rubi the day I was signing paperwork due to the trench cover. Then I thought about how I prefer to limit my dogs activity in the back and try to have a smaller footprint of dog hair so it didn't matter to me. The trench cover should be on all models though. It would be great for many reasons..

Glad I read this thread because I was trying to avoid leather. I guess my dog is worth $1500.

I'm pretty sure I saw these on both cloth and leather JLs at my dealer...and I also though I recalled someone on here confirming they had then in their cloth equipped JL? I might be wrong...could it be something that sometimes gets installed...sometimes not? Is this installed by dealer or at factory?

I was hoping mine would have these...thought I had put my fears to rest...:)

Does anyone know if you can buy a stock JLU Trench/Gap Cover? I accidentally broke mine when trying to install the rear cargo mat from MOPAR. :( please let me know if there any options to get a new one
