What color seat covers to get?

I have a dark green TJ, with a tan back seat. I want to get seat covers for the front seats. The back seat is already made of neoprene. I want to get the Coverking Neoprene seat covers: Coverking SPC126 - Coverking Front Seat Covers for 03-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ - Quadratec
What color do you think I should get?

Thanks!

Well, if the tan they have matches it, that's what I'd go for.

If not then do something that tickles your fancy.

I personally like the two tone covers that come from Dirty Mudder. Maybe you could get creative and express yourself.

Thanks! Though where do I buy those? I can't find any place online. I also don't want to spend a lot of money. Thanks for your comments tho!

No they aren't waterproof unless you treat them.

The seat covers you provided the link for are not waterproof either. Neoprene actually holds water and sweat. They will start to smell.

Dirty Mudders covers can get tossed into the wash and are as good as new. I live on a gravel road mine get very dusty. I wash mine every couple weeks. Still look good.

I don't have to worry about dust as much as water. I'll have the top off all summer, so I really need waterproof. Are there any waterproof seat covers out there? Can't you wash neoprene?

You can wash it but they are a pain in the a$$ to take on and off.

Neoprene holds water like a sponge. That is how it keeps divers warm.

So neoprene covers would prob dry faster than if the water was soaked right through the seats. Does a lot of water go right through neoprene?

Another thought, just to keep it simple, would be to get a trail cover.

Then it wouldn't matter WHICH seat covers you chose, you could keep your bottom dry.

That is a good idea, but if I'm at the beach or something, and when I park it's beautiful out, and then it rains later, I prob won't have the trail cover on. With seat covers, they are always on, so you don't have to worry about it. I think I'll get the trail cover any way, since I do have an amp on the floor, and it'll protect what ever else is in the Jeep.

But are there any completely water proof seat covers?

Evidently none that any of us know about.
You may just have to polish up your Google Fu and head out on a mission of enlightenment.

If your seats get a little wet once and awhile, it's not going to hurt anything.
When they made the vehicle so that you could remove the top and doors, they took into consideration that this might happen and made fabrics that hold up to that sort of thing pretty well.

If you get into a downpour, put your top back up! If it's raining enough that your seats get wet, you're going to be a drowned rat anyway, so why worry!

I'll bet $$ that you're not made of sugar and that you won't melt

When mine get really nasty dirty, I take them out of the Jeep and pressure wash them.

Trail cover is an excellent investment. And Bestop and Iggees are the only truly waterproof seat covers I know of. Vinyl will be a "blast" top down in the sun tho'

I should def do that, maybe paint my whole Jeep camo, then I'd really be floating lol... I guess I'll prob just get a trail cover then, its no big deal if my seats get wet, as long as they don't moldy or anything. I don't have a full soft top, just a safari top, that's why I was so concerned about the seat covers, if i had a softop, this wouldn't be a problem...

thanks!

Well see silly, you never said you didn't have a full top! That changes EVERYTHING!

Another thought on the neoprene is that they hold moisture a long time and in your position would be more likely to produce mildew than something that would breathe. You want a fabric that will allow the moisture to evaporate and dry, not to hold it in.

So what would you suggest as far as fabrics? It looks the Dirty Mudder ones would be really hot in the summer since they are made of that polyester fleece. I don't want my back to sweating like a pig b/c of the seat covers.... what a dilemma!

Are these pics of your trail cover? If so, would you recommend that specific one? Is it easy to put on and off? Is it good quality?...
Thanks

No, not mine. I have several wheelin buddies with this cover, have seen it first hand and it's the best out there that I have seen so far.

I don't have one ONLY because it won't fit over my light bar.
Otherwise, this is the one I'd buy.

I don't think that the polar fleece would be hot, just as a cover. It's not that you're wrapping yourself up in it. It breathes.

I don't have any experience with them but I do have several polar fleece jackets and a full length house coat that are extremely comfortable.

I think that you are WAY over thinking this. Pick something and jump!

Does your back sweat like a pig on your cloth seats? If so, then yeah, you'll sweat like a pig on any seat cover. At least with most seat covers you can wash them when they start to smell like a gym...

Anything that is "waterproof" is going to be a whole lot sweatier than something that isn't because of the rubber or vinyl backing.

Man, I'm glad to try and help you but you're gettin' on my last nerve now... go buy something, Put a towel on it... ANYTHING... just make a darn decision already.

More info/options----Check the pics of the wraparound Jammer with my Dirty Mudders-It keeps the inside very dry and I don't have a safari length top-just the bikini. I am assuming you have doors? of some sort? The duster could be added later if needed/wanted -gives you a place to put things away from prying eyes.

Oh and about the Dirty Mudders-I have had 2 sets of RR "neoprene" seat covers and one set Cover King- they provide swamp a$$, are very hot, a PIA to clean and remove when wanting to wash them, and don't wash well in a standard clothes washer.

My Dirty Mudders I can take off in about 2 min toss in washer/dryer and reinstall clean with a nice scent-(from fabric softener-which helps repel water) and reinstall in maybe 10 min.
They are not any "warmer" than the stock material but a lot softer feeling and hold up well IMO.

Good Luck!!!Attachment 48179
