Never posted these, but I added them when I got the truck. I’ve seen the husky ones but can’t compare the two. These do the job.

just look at a pic on the first page and then towards the end. there's no real detail regarding it. Just a bunch of screws underneath that you remove. pretty easy stuff.

Here’s the before. Guess someone didn’t get the parking memo. Silly D***e. Image

Just another small piece towards that Stormtrooper look.

I had WeatherTech liners in my last couple of trucks. Haven’t ran the Huskies. I have the GM ones in my current truck. The rear ones seem fine and offer full coverage. The truck came with the under seat storage. Call it lazy, but since they seem like they cover well enough, I’ll likely keep them so that I don’t have to take the storage out to get new ones in.

However, I’m not a fan of the front ones b/c of the lack of coverage under the gas pedal. A day in the rain or in the field, and could get pretty nasty on the carpet there and stuff could start working it’s way down behind the liner. The WT and I’m sure the Huskies offer full coverage even behind the pedal. So, I’ll be swapping out the fronts as soon as I get a few other things done and before hunting season.

I thought there was a lawsuit or something where they had them covering under the gas pedal and switched due to causing a wreck.

Easy mod but gives it symmetry.

Now you should add a steering wheel and gauges on the passenger side to be even more symmetrical... :D

I somehow bent the edge of the lower air dam so it was rubbing when turning left. Took it off! Image

For people who take off stock parts like the air dam, the flat piece instead of the handle.. what do you do with them? Trash them, keep them or sale them? I live in an apartment and extra stuff takes up room.
