Looking at seats to replace stock ones

Have been looking at a few alternatives to replace or cover my existing Sahara green/brown stock cloth seats. I was leaning towards covers from covering or wet okole since there is a great deal on right now on Quadratec. Then I ran across these on eBay....anyone ever used or have feedback on these JDM universal seats?

Lol....good point. I figured the old saying applies that you get what you pay for.

I will most likely stick to covers until I can afford actual seats I like. I'm really liking Corbeau and Mastercraft models so far.

Don't do Wet Okole or any other neoprene cover. They fade fast and soak up moisture. Iggees

X2 on not using Wet Okole or any other neoprene cover. Neoprene is not waterproof, it soaks it up like a sponge if not wiped off right away. And neoprene soaks up perspiration too.

When I was ready for new seats for my TJ, I ended up getting mine from PRP Racing that are made here in California. Most of the seats you'll find on eBay are cheaply made in China.

X2 on PRP seats. Color choices and very comfy. Can wheel all day without getting stiff.

Got my iggee seat covers this week. They fit perfect and the quality is awesome. Worth the extra few bucks until I can afford replacement seats. Very comfortable and logo great. Thanks for the heads up!

Ha yeah that's why I'm running PRP Racing seats in my TJ now. A friend won a pair of PRP seats at a drawing held for King of the Hammers volunteers and I helped him get his seat heaters working. The first time I sat in his seats I immediately started hating my stock seats.
