Seat Covers

Just looking to see what are the best seat covers for the price? Pics would be appreciated, my seats are trashed. Looking for less then $100 for both front seats.

Well I bought the Smittybilt ones and wasn't impressed to be honest. I'll take some photos and post them shortly but still want to put a quick write up as the rear fitting sucks.

Pro's - Good Quality, looks great, price (buy front get rear free) ( I guess you can get a 3 year add on warranty for 30 bucks too)

Con's - Straps are poorly sewn on, two straps broke when installing, Rear seat doesn't fit at all sides (will post picts of those) Side straps really have nothing to strap on as I have no springs under the seat (if you move forward/back strap just gets ripped off) Rear doesn't fit at all has no elastic for sides of the bench

One seat was stained before I even took it out of the bag (but that's a 1 off problem I'd like to think)

Maybe its user error but I'm going to swap them out and see what else is out there.

Well I'm going to put in new front seats too this is just a band-aid but it'll leave me w/ covers for when I surf & hit the trail that way my new seats dont get F'd up.

The fronts fit very well just the straps are poorly sewn on and any pulling on them will result in them ripping.

The best are Wet Okole, but they are way over $100. You get what you pay for.

Go to your local junkyard and pick up a set of front seats out of a two-door Grand Am/Prix, Sunfire, Cavalier. Years '95-'01 will bolt right to your stock seat risers with no mods. If you look hard enough, you can find leather power/heated seats out of some of the higher end models of the Grand Prix. And you'll spend less than $100 at most places as junkyards around here are all quoting around $45 each for these seats.

Make sure the seats come from a two-door, so they'll fold forward.

I have the cavalier seats in mine and they are great! Except they are cloth. I am looking at the coverking covers for them to make them waterproof.

They are $180 but seem to be worth the money. So for two waterproof comfy seats I shoud lhave just over $200 in them. Good price to me seeing as any aftermarjet replacement were over $200 for just one seat.
