Best Floor Mats for Stow and Go Flexibility

Help! I'm stressing which mats to buy. We have the 8th passenger seating. So far, we tend to leave the 8th seat in while putting one of the second row seats down. I need mat that are flexible with this arrangement but will also work if we put the other second row seat up and take out the 8th passenger seat.

Current situation: two elementary age SavageKids in third row and one rear-facing SavageKid in the second row. I've already flipped the other second row seat up and down a few times for grandparent visits. I also expect this arrangement to change as the kids grow.

I prefer gray mats. Black makes the care too hot where we live or I'd try the Mopar mats.

What would you do? What have you tried?

If you're more concerned about stow-n-go access than coverage, I'd definitely go with the Mopar rubber mats. They easily fold out of the way to stow the seats and they're the only ones that have a separate piece that can be in or out for the 8th seat spot. And although most of the pics make them look black, they're actually gray.

Thanks. That is very helpful to know the Mopar are actually Gray.

I have the Mopar and one-piece Weathertech. While the Mopar makes accessing the stow and go much easier, I found the multi-piece design didn't give me enough coverage and the mats tended to move around quite a bit. With the Weathertech, I use the Stow Assist button on both sides to fold the mat out of the way. It's a little cumbersome but, for me, the superior coverage of the Weathertech outweighs the stow and go inconvenience. Just my $.02.

I have husky liners and 8 seat. I feel that the husky cut out for second row is better for access to store n go because the second row does not include the passage way cover... That's the third row coverage.

For the 8th seat, I plan on cutting small flaps for the 8th seat latch and use Velcro to latch the flap back down when the 8 seat is not in use.

I have used the stow n go with the husky and its not that bad.

What about Lloyd's? Does anyone see a difference between the 7 and 8 seat options? I though I could buy both for the price compared to Huskey or Weather Tech. But when I look at the drawings, they look the same for 7 and 8 seat.

Depending on where you live.... if you aren't dealing with the slushes of snow/wet/mud and moreso want to be covered from occasional spill and general day to day tracking of "dirt" with some rain sprinkled in here and there then the mopar all weather is probably a good bet. If you deal with bad weather and months of salt/snow/slush/wetness then the other choices are better because of the much greater coverage area and rigidity compared to the mopar rubber mats.

Another way to possible think of this is if you think the existing factory mats are good and are ok with coverage but you really don't want cloth then mopar all weather MATS is your goto solution. All others look at floor LINERS.

That is how I am working it out in my head.
