Had many jeeps but my first JL, what is the hook looking thing in the front floorboard? There is even a hole to access it in my Jeep rubber mats.

You undoubtedly are talking about the gizmo of sorts... the retainers (2 on driver's side and two in front passenger footwell) attached to the surface of the carpeting.... that are designed to secure the floor liners / floor mats to the floor so they do not blow out of the Wrangler or move around, causing a safety issue, etc..

Yes, there are 2 holes in the mat/floorliner that are the females that mate up to the 2 males found on the carpet.

Part # / Pic of the one in a JL... JK has a different one..

You can see the 2 females on the installed Bestop floor liner with the retainers plugged into each (2)..

Totally unrelated, but... where did you get that Rubicon badge for the floor mat? I would love to replace the Quadratec logos in mine with something like that.

Zip ties??? Cut them off and throw them in the trash. Also pull off the drain plug cut-out from your carpet, pull out the plug, and use it to plug the drain hole in the mats.

The 2 small holes attach the mat to the floor, as explained earlier. The big hole is the mat drain hole that lines up with the drain hole in the carpet and floor. There will be a precut section of the carpet directly under the hole. It's still attached on both sides. Pull those off, then pull the drain plugs out. The mat will fit into the hole, then the drain plug will go into the big hole in the mat.

I think... I'm still not certain exactly what you're asking, but I think this answers your question.
