Went to the dealership to get my defrost cable fixed ☹. Same thing happened on my JK but it took 4 years to happen. Anyone else have this problem with the cable coming off the windshield?

Yes - wondering if you think it is better than a future Weathertech tray - (which is not available yet)
WeatherTech floor liner for front of JLU/JL is available now. You can find on eBAY right now for $129, I believe. Personally, I would rather have the WeatherTech offering or when available Husky X-act Contour mats.

Yes, one other guy here has had this. He went to the dealer and they said FCA said to replace the whole window versus fixing the cable connection. Of course, window availability is an issue right now.

Not sure that I can speculate on something that isn't even available yet, but I like my Mopar set. Good quality materials, plus includes pieces that attach to the back of the seats so that when you fold them down you have basically full coverage from the mats. The only thing not covered are the sections on either sides of the middle cargo area, where the cargo hooks are, but I was fine with that. I like the coverage and the look. Install's a bit more involved than just dropped the mats in, but happy to give some pointers if/when you get to that point.

My question was about the rear cargo tray.

Jake, thanks for the info. I am seriously considering it. On Quadratec they have a pic of it with the trail rail management system - which should be available shortly.

Yes exactly and that's another reason you wouldn't want to cover up that section with mat... I think it looks and should function perfectly, personally. And matches with my front and rear seat mats that I have as well

Does yours detach when folding down and lifting up? The larger mat of mine won’t hold onto the trench.

No mine does not detach - what is coming detached? The entire gap cover piece or the pieces that snap the mat into place?

Wait... so you want him to make a decision of if what he purchased is better than something that doesn't exist? Why doesn't he tell us if the JL he purchased is better than the 2025 Wrangler (which is not available yet) too? ;):cwl:

Where the larger mat attaches to the gap cover. It just snaps right off. Maybe I did something wrong lol.
Hmm I definitely wouldn't think that those would be coming loose as long as you installed the clips onto the gap cover in the right direction in the 5 holes that you have to cut out of the gap cover piece. There's 2 pieces to each of those clips that you have to install - 1 from each side and they join together by just applying pressure to snap them into place. Then the large cargo mat section should easily clip into them in the same way that all the other mats do into their spots.

Only thought is that maybe you put the clips backwards on the gap cover?

Hopefully you didn't remove your gap cover from the bracket like I did when you installed the set, which I only did because I watched the video where the guy did for his install. Proved to be ridiculously unnecessary.
