Hi All,

I just installed my Mopar Jeep Commander Floor Mats and my question is this:

Should I remove the factory floor mats or just put the Mopar floor mats over the existing factory mats.

I realize this is probably a personal preference, but I was wondering if there are advantages and disadvantages either way and will putting the mopar floor mats over the factory floor mats ruin the factory floor mats?

Thanks in advance.

I have always put rubber slush mats over the factory floor mats. I do not think it makes any difference.
Thanks for the reply. I figured it does not matter, but the service manager at the dealership said that putting the slush mats over the factory mats ruins them...who knows????

Never ruined mine. I just traded a three year old Rubicon for my Commander and the factory mats looked like new. Just vacuum the factory mats to remove any indentations left by the rubber mats and you are good to go.

I also have a 99 GC that I bought new and the factory mats look new when I remove the slush mats for cleaning.

I figured as such. Thanks very much!!!

Just installed floor mats from mats.com. See link below for my installation. The instructions that came with the mats recommended ALL other floor mats be removed as it's not necessary to have mats on mats. Also, mats on mats do not really stack very good. So, I'm saving the original mats in my garage. Re the picture link, there are two shots merged as one (driver's side on left.) These mats actually form a reservoir for liquids and solid dirt. Very nice fit especially disigned for the Commander.

I have had an AUDI and put the rubber ones over the velour ones. On several occasions I had a stuck gas pedal. As both cars have "fly by wire" accelerators, it may be safe not to make the “floor” higher in relationship to the gas pedal to avoid a similar problem.

Or it may just have been the Audi. They have a very long history of "stuck gas pedals". There have been quite a few law suits over it in fact.

Had it happened to me when I first put mine in. Kinda of scary if there had been traffic.
