Are the new WeatherBeater liners made from the same material
as the original Husky Floor Liners?
A. Yes, the WeatherBeaters use the same material as the original
Husky Floor Liners and have the same lifetime warranty. Note
that trunk liners for cars will be offered in black color
only as the trunk “carpeting” is normally a dark
color. Cargo liners will be made in colors to match the interior
of the respective vehicles.
If the material is the same, what is the difference between
the WeatherBeater liners and the original Husky Liners?
A. The most noticeable difference is the styling of the product.
Though there are similarities in the product design through
the entire WeatherBeater line (the ribs and heel pad features
for instance) there are also styling cues that are unique
to specific vehicles. For instance, we try and match patterns
found on door sills and other areas in the cabin of vehicles
and insert these into the heel pads. You will also find that
in vehicles where the door side edge of the liner is exposed
during entry and exit we have redesigned the edge so that
stepping in and out of the vehicle while avoiding the lip
is more easily done.
How can a retailer tell if the part is the new WeatherBeater
pattern or the diamond plate pattern?
A. There are two easy ways to distinguish patterns in most
cases. The definitive way is by checking the 2009 catalog
(will be out the end of February 2009) as you will find a
"WB" in the column right next to the part number
of every WeatherBeater part. Most times you can also tell
by the part number itself. A first digit "9" will
indicate that the part is a front and second seat WeatherBeater
set. For example, part #98331 is a 2009 Ford F150 Super Crew
front and second seat liner set in black color. A first digit
"1" will indicate a single unit (pair) WeatherBeater
liner. For example, part #18331 is the front liner for the
2009 Ford F150 Regular Cab (driver and passenger side = pair).
It will also fit the front of the 2009 F150 Super Cab and
Super Crew should a customer want only the front liners. The
exception to the "number" rule would be cargo liner,
trunk liners and center hump liners. Cargo liners will begin
with a "2" as they always have. Trunk liners will
begin with a "4" and center hump liners with an
"8". All new applications will be WeatherBeater
pattern except in "supercede" situations.
Will existing applications be converted to the WeatherBeater
A. Some current model applications will be converted. We will
send out an Engineering Releases with the new part information
when this happens. You can also check our website (www.huskyliners.com)
for information regarding new products and while there you
can also download the latest version of our catalog. At this
time we are working on WeatherBeater parts for the 2007-2009
Silverado/Sierra trucks. You will find these parts numbers
listed in the 2009 catalog.
Will the WeatherBeater parts for trucks work with the Husky
Gear Boxes installed?
A. Yes, the liners are designed to accommodate the Husky Gear
