Best CHEAP seat covers?

Hey everyone, so I'm dead set on getting seat covers this year, and my main goal is to protect the seats from the sun, my ass, and dirt/water that will get on them from wheeling. Question is.. What is the best cheap ones that will get the job done? They don't need to look or feel awesome, just protect the seats and cover the whole seat. Red and black will be nice if they have them, as long as they don't rip fast or completely distort colors, thanks guys!

I got the Coverkings for $169 from QT (buy fronts, get rears free). They're pretty solid and look new one year later here in NH.

I've seen the Cover king and the Smittybilt, both seem to fade though, if I would to go with either one, couldn't I just spray some UV protector and be fine?

Hey I am wondering what covers to buy as well, looking for the same thing. I looked into having my seats sprayed but have heard horror stories of peeling, cracking,etc...

If you find something that is a great deal let me know.

Good Luck
Mick

I have seat savers. I got the front and back for $169.00 with free shipping. This is my 4th set. They are very durable. I treat with scotch guard as a back up.

The bestops are pretty nice covers and at a reasonable price. They actually look pretty great depending on what color you get. Smittybilt has also a line of seat covers too and they won't cost an arm or a leg.

Really though, I'm searching the bestop ones now. I don't expect to have too much water, but waterproof is nice. Has anyone sprayed their non water proof covers with that water protector or uv protector spray? Curious to know how'd that go.

NOT from personal experience...but have read other members post how it increases fading, and becomes too sticky.

Ok stay away from neoprene. Those thing are not waterproof they are water resistante. Leave water on neoprene for too long then youll have swamp ass. Best quality seat cover I would recommend that won't fade and is water proof is Iggees seat covers. 300 front and rear.
