Which vinyl/rubber floor mats do have? (Pics please)

I need to get new floor mats and since I have a vinyl floor, I want to get rubber or vinyl mats. I found a set of OEM mats on eBay for around $70, but for that price, I thought I'd take a survey and see what seems to be the best and/or most popular aftermarket mats. Before I decide on any aftermarket mat, I want to see what it looks like in a Ranger, so please post a pic if possible.

I have a set of WeatherTech Extreme-Duty floor liners and I love them.

Those look nice. I'm just concerned that the melted snow and stuff in the winter will turn them into a mini pond. The one nice thing about my original floor mats is that the grooves are deep enough that a decent amount of snow can melt in there without my foot being in the water.

Do you happen to have a pic of these in your truck?

I don't, but they are nice. I like them because water, mud, etc. doesn't ever touch the regular floor. All you have to do is take out the liner and clean it off. No other mess to worry about.

Those do look nice. I just don't know about spending $100+ on front floor mats. That's kinda steep. Even the OEM ones I found on ebay are more than I'd prefer to pay.

I have Weathertechs as well in my F150. To me they're a must if you have carpet. I bought mine off Ebay for $80 shipped. I know guys on the F150 sites were saying you can land them on amazon every so often for $40-50.

I don't have carpet luckily, but I will have to check eBay and Amazon and if I can find them for $50-75, I'd pick up a set.

I bought my OEM ones from cchsbuzz (Clayton) on here for $35. They are one of my best investments in the truck as they have saved my carpet though the sand and snow and a little mud

Does anyone know if these WeatherTech mats have the hole for the retaining clip on the driver's side? I think I'd rather have a mat as opposed to a liner. From what I can tell in the pictures of the liners (as compared with the mats) is that the liners will contain the mess, but your feet will be soaking in any melted snow, etc. On the other hand, these WeatherTech mats and the stock mats that dixie posted above have the raised groves and can hold a decent amount of water before your feet would be sitting in it. Since I have the vinyl floor already, a liner isn't as critical to me as a mat that helps keep my feet and bottom of my pants legs dry(er).

I know on my F150 the weathertechs have a hole for the retaining clip. The thing about the weather techs is they're designed to run everything off the floor and over the sill plate. So if a lot of moisture would build up it would run out the door once opened. The weathertechs have come groves just not as many as the ones Dixie posted. The weathertechs are probably aimed more for people with carpet as they're designed to prevent ANYTHING from touching the carpet. Since my family owns a construction company I wanted something that would insure sand never got into the carpet. As once it gets in there you can never get it back out. The weathertechs are awesome at that.

x2. My carpet still looks brand new, even after having a entire 32oz sweet tea cup dumped into the mat.

Do they have the hole for the retaining hook on the driver's side?

So...did you find mats that work? 'Cause I'd like to get some for over my vinyl floor too! WeatherTech mats look great...but...the WeatherTech website says their mats are "Not designed or recommended for models equipped with vinyl flooring."

If OP did find some, he's probably not going to tell you. This thread is over 4 years old! OP hasn't been on here since 2011. The dates are on the posts for a reason; please pay attention to them.
