Rubber cargo mats

Who has one? Whats it look like? Hows the quality? Sound deadening? Insulative properties? Cost?

I want something to make the floor ribs go away, they hurt my knees when working on stuff in there..

Are you looking to replace the OEM cargo mat, or, do you not even have that? Either way, that mat will not do the job you desire, since you definitely can feel the floor contours through it. I've taken mine out, and put in a half inch plywood floor, with household linoleum on top of that. Walking, kneeling or sitting on the flat floor really is an improvement, even with no significant padding. If and when I find a rubber floor material of about 1/8 inch thickness at a reasonable price, I may replace the linoleum.

Where are you located? I removed the Ford rubber mat from a 148" WB which is available.

2015 high roof 148" WB 3.5 Ecoboost 3.31 LS rear cargo.

I have the OEM mat with the fiber backing, just too thin for me. Also thinking something more substantial would assist with insulation and sound deadening.

Might try to mass load between floor ribs under the oem mat, but thatll be a lot of work an for me time is money..

I threw 5/8" textured horse stall mats on top of the factory rubber mat. It does seem to quiet it down a little. Much easier to walk and kneel on, but you can still feel the floor ribs a little. 4x6' are about 88lbs each and I think they were $80 each (it took 4 of them to cover my extended van). Downside is it took several months for them to stop offgassing, even after letting them sit out on my patio for a month. Now they don't stink.

I don't think you'll make progress, that way. Once I had the mat out, and examined it, I realized that the fiber material is compressed into the pattern of the floor ribs, when manufactured. You can feel the ribs because of anomalies in the material, but, there's not really any room to be adding stuff.

Scrape off the padding (or not) and lay the oem mat over some plywood. You already have a pattern to cut from.

Google or search Amazon for ergo mats and etc. Can find all types and lengths and sold or with holes. Just depends on what you want to spend. Can maybe put them under the factory mat so they stay in place and no seems.

Mats.........

I used a Pickup Truck mat for the rear part of my Van. Obviously it was to short so I ordered two 3'X4' 3/4" thick ergo mats and used them in the front part of the van.

I got them from U-Line and they work great. We use them in the shop at the individual work stations and they're indestructible.

Van Safe,
VA

Had the same issue, I get in my van a lot with my knees to grab a few tools and the factory mat was a killer, I bought some foam padding at Menards (flooring dept), they interlock and work fine, not over the top expensive like the front mat I ordered from Ford, they were 80 bucks and a complete JOKE, They should of been less than 20 but hey, they say Transit on them right!!! LOL
