Seat Covers and Floor Mats

I tried searching for some old threads, but was unsuccessful. I apologize in advance if this has already been discussed.

I have a new '09 Ford Ranger Regular Cab with a vinyl split bench seat and arm rest (no opening console), and vinyl flooring (no carpet).

I would like to get some nice fitting seat covers that are relatively inexpensive (under $80) and some all weather floor mats. Most of the floor mats I've seen are designed for carpet and have sharp nibs on the bottom. I am afraid to put them on the vinyl because they might poke through the surface and into the padding.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have searched for quite a while. I know the factory makes some OEM rubber mats for about $60, but I think they have those nibs on them as well.

Thanks,

Rob

Can I put any floor mat over the vinyl flooring, you think? Or do you think the sharp nibs will poke through?

I would recommend splurging a little... I got the ones for my '99 on ebay and it was like $110 for the set of covers for a 60/40 w/ opening arm rest. The nice thing about those were they were snug and looked stock. A PITA to get on but I never had any problems with 'em and never had to re-adjust anything. As for rubber mats I was looking at those on ebay yesterday too... I think it was like $50-$60 for a set?? Don't remember...

I have the same floor, the nibs are not sharp enough to poke through.

buy it nice, or buy it twice. $350 is well worth it... besides you can get wet okoles for much less than $350 if you get plain ones

I have the factory Ford Floor mats in my truck and they could never poke through the floor. I would recommend getting them. I didn't have to pay for them though. ford bought them for me when they set my truck on fire... no I'm not kidding.

No pics. sorry. I didn't know about it until after it happened. Around 2005 I took my truck to the dealership because I noticed a little rust on the left and right inner fenders. They told me it would take a week and I didn't have the truck for around 27 days. We went through hell with them. I came in one day to check on it and they had parts of another car in the bed of my truck like it was there for they're storage purposes. I blew up at them at that point too. Any way, they had to completely replace one of the inner fenders so they cut it out and welded in a new one. the dummies didn't lay down a welding blanket in the cab so they caught the rubber mat on fire and melted the driver side floor mat.

I noticed the floor mat when i went to pick up the truck and they said they'd replace it. I let them, thus how I got my OEM floormats.

Anyway, about a week later when I was on my way to work a guy in a Ranger motioned at me to roll my window down, so I did. He asked if my truck was at the dealership and if it was the one that caught fire. I said it was there and one of my floor mats was melted, but I didn't know anything about it catching fire. He said that they burnt the flooring and had to replace it, yada yada yada.

Now you have it, the story of my truck catching fire. Oh, I never took my truck back there again and that service manager got fired soon after, I think my dad and I complaining about him had a little to do with it.

I got my floor mats from Costco for like $7 on coupon. I think they still have them for around $15. They dont have the "spikes" on the back. They have 3 or 4 rubber pads on the back that work pretty well at holding them in place.

Heres a pic for ya.
