You cut 2 slits in the floor and run the "clip" through the slits and it snaps in place. Very easy to mark after placing your mat, mark the hole, place the retainer upside down, trace it, then make your slits.

Traded an '05 P71 with 175K miles on my '18 and there was very little wear in the rubber mat under the gas pedal. I wouldn't worry about wearing a hole in your rubber floor.

It's your money, but I'd leave it as is. I've owned a lot of trucks over the years with rubber floors and never seen one damaged. It is just one more thing to cause problems. My brother has a 2006 Tundra with that flooring and it still looks new.

I never knew a dealer "not" to make a sale on additional items but ok , someone else will definitely sell some to you! I was going to recommend something like this https://myautostores.com/products/fl...mat-front+only but @summers22, no one can beat what you got!! $2.13 per mat - That is a steal!!! That's my type of deal right there!!!!!

I've used weathertechs on several vehicles and always been happy but on my 2015 I bought two different styles of weathertech and wasn't happy with them. I saw the 3D Maxpider mats talked about on this forum and had never heard of them. I looked at them and decided to give them a shot. I now have them in two of my vehicles and am very happy with them.

Default Floor Mats for vinyl floors

I don't remember the details as it was 8-10 years ago, but there were some people that had accidents because they claimed the gas pedals stuck. It turned out that the problem was the rubber floor mats had slid forward and wrinkled and jammed under the gas pedals. That's why there are the various hold downs on at least the driver side today. Also, I would expect that's why they won't sell mats for the vinyl floors.

The rubber floor equipped trucks do not have the floor mat hold downs. You can buy them from Ford and install them yourself but it does require cutting the rubber floor and sound deadening around your new hole. It is not a big deal, it just takes some time. My neighbor went with the one piece full width WT mat for his rubber floored F-150 and he says it stays in place. I installed the clips on mine and the individual mats remain in place. Just remember to put some silicone on the clips so once you have them in place they are sealed to the underside of the rubber floor. This keeps the sound deadening dry.
