Picked the kit up from the dealership this morning. I did not realize it required drilling holes in our Passport to install, totally my fault for not researching before I laid down the 300 bucks. Not to be a defeated DIYer I grabbed some round hook and loop fasteners with adhesive backs out of the junk drawer and voila. Any place that touches carpet I used only the hook side. The four places that touch plastic I used both sides of the fasteners. The seat back protectors are all hook because the seat backs are carpet. If I was going to do it again I would go to the store and pick up some 1" round black hook in loop. The ones in the photo are 5/8" white and are shown on the inside of the driver side panel. Remainder of photos are completed install. I had to add a hook fastener to the left of the power outlet to tighten up the fit. We will see how the adhesive holds up next summer when the black vehicle is left parked in the sun.

Nice job, really want to those tire well protectors but didn't want to drill. Velcro/hook n loop great idea. But now, I've installed a couple lighter weight accessories in my cargo area using better quality/strength hook n loop. Only this SE TX heat makes the glue soft, esp in my hot garage and I find my accessories laying on the cargo mat where they've slid off the plastic walls/tailgate. Prolly it'll work better with this cooler weather coming.

OH YEAH, LETS GO ASTROS!!!! Taking my Passport down the road to watch first series game now. peace y'all, e.

Looks great. Ordered mine yesterday and will be doing the same install. Two questions:
1. How many hook/loop fasteners does it require?
2. Do the panels fit snug against the carpeted surfaces as they would if screws were used?

While all that looks very nice ...

my past experience is all those add-on hard plastic surfaces are more slippery than the original carpet - and the stuff I carry back there slides to and fro. I'd prefer something more grippy.

Yep, that's why for now, I am using these 2'x2', grey foam-type floor panels that I got at Lowe's., 4 to a pack. I carry hard, plastic speakers, couple gear bags and a couple folding carts for my band gigs. I slide a panel against the wheel well before loading my gear. Keeps the carts from sliding and scratching the carpet. The OEM cargo floor mat really helps to keep gear from sliding around as well. And I added a flip out bumper cover to protect that as I slide gear in and out of cargo area.

May still add those wheel well covers later. I'm more looking at the seatback protectors to keep that carpet area neat. But again, a thick, black sheet I lay over the folded down seats takes care of that as well. Works for keeping the pups' talons off the seat back carpet too.

Sometimes, just improvising does it well enough. :giggle: peace, e.
