    Hello!

    We are excited to offer a new product beyond our Vehicle OCD organizers. We are now part of the Baselayer family. Baselayer specializes in manufacturing premium all-weather American made floor mats.

    We are looking for 3 members to do an unbiased and honest review of our new 4Runner floor mats here on T4R. We will provide a free set of front and rear mats. All we ask is you follow through with posting your honest opinion. First 3 members to reply will get a set of mats headed their way. I will PM for shipping info.

    Edit: Thank you for volunteering.

    If I have 100% freedom what to say (good or bad), what test I do, if I don't have to enter my credit card or anything I can test them for you and post the video on my YouTube channel.

    Sorry, I don't want any contract or any commission base thing. I review and that's all.

    Thanks for the offer. We will keep you in mind and take a look at your channel. I got the third tester before you replied.

    FYI - this is what we ask of each tester. "Just reply to this thread with your honest opinion. Compare to whatever mats you currently have. Some pictures installed and/or "before and after" pictures. If you were looking to buy mats what info would help you on the forum?"

    It’s good to see a product introduction that can actually serve a genuine purpose, unlike raptor lights.

    Wish you success. :)

    Put a tab under the gas pedal, or is that purposefully omitted after the Toyota self acceleration debacle? Zero coverage there and my carpet is getting all nasty with the OEM floor liners.

    Hopefully these are more robust than a set of 3D Maxpider I had for my 2nd gen Tacoma, which look eerily similar:

    Mine did not have the reinforced area where the driver's heel goes, and they wore through the upper surface layer fairly quickly. They looked great when new.

    Looks good, but can I put in my .02? Maybe make the two side wider; extend the door sill area a bit further out, on the opposite side bring it up higher along the carpet then slightly longer so it tucks underneath the seat more?

    Doesn't come as high up as my Tuxmats. That is who you have to beat

    Yes, it was designed for the safety aspect with the specific accelerator pedal. Although it does not go underneath the gas pedal the coverage is pretty good and all debris will slide down the ramped surface. Maybe our 3 testers can share their opinion on this once installed.

    Glad you like your Tuxmats. That is one of many features when choosing floor mats for you car.

    Initial thoughts are impressive. They are quality. Fitment is perfect. Nice thick material and very cool design. I like the caps that cover the mat hold downs. They are a lot nicer than current OEM pro mats. I don't foresee them wearing out with the thickness. The cleats that attach to carpet grip like Velcro. I love the look also. They seem deep enough for what I do. I don't mind them not coming over the sill because the weathertechs in my tacomas end up warped and wrinkled anyway. Will daily drive with an update after awhile.

    Do they come with those plugs over the retention clip holes? One of my pet peeves with my mats is water getting through the retention clip holes.
