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 Box.
