Default Mats for vinyl floor truck

What mats would you recommend for a vinyl floor truck? I know its not supposed to need any, but its a new truck and I want to protect the floor from wear and tear. Its a 2012 regular cab split bench (no console) with column shift. I'm thinking maybe a 1 piece over the hump type mat. A 2 piece would also be OK. I'm looking for something that won't slide around, perhaps a soft rubber. The hexomats and the Lloyd rubbertite look like they might work. Got any suggestions?

Wow, that is a tricky question as most of the manufacturers don't really make a mat for vinyl flooring.
Do you have the hook in the front to keep it from sliding around? Many of the mats come with "nubs or spikes" on the backside of the mat and that usually adds to the sliding issue.

I have vinyl floors in my truck and I put in some Fanmats (Virgina Tech of course!) but they do slide around a little bit. I have heard of people adding that stuff you put in your kitchen shelves (thin rubber sheets?) under their mats, or gluing Velcro strips under the mat to keep them in place but easy to remove for cleaning. I even read about someone putting carpet underneath and then putting the rubber mats on top but there could be some thickness issues. Safety is the top concern as you don't want to have any interference with your pedals!

Let me look into this a bit more and I will get back to you.

OK thanks. No hooks that I can see. Don't know if the pedals are an issue, I have the power adjustable ones. I remember when there was no such thing as carpet in a pickup truck and as I recall you could get rubber mats that had no nibs on the bottom. No one seems to make those anymore. I suppose I could take a razor blade and cut off all the nibs, but I would still need a soft rubber to get friction with the floor. Most of the mats these days seem to be some kind of harder plastic composite.

You could try the Husky Weatherbeater mats and go with the center hump liner which overlaps onto the other mats and should give it some weight to keep from sliding around.
