I have these - they look just like leather, and dog hair wipes right off. I would highly recommend them.

Edit: Upon further review, they don't list them for a 2013 JK yet. I wonder if the seats have changed enough that the covers for the older JK's wouldn't fit?

Thanks DjA. I will keep this in mind.

Thanks! This is is the kind of feedback I was looking for.

Thanks to everyone who responded. I don't want to clog the thread with too many direct replies, so I'll just say that you've had some great suggestions. I'm not obsessed with eliminating the hair (I'm resigned to a certain amount); I'm just having a problem with how much it's sticking to these seats -- and I'm entirely too lazy to do bi-daily cleanup. Plus the sticky rollers don't work well in cold temperatures.

This is Bob my 65 pound shed machine:



The only thing his hair doesn't stick to in the jeep is the plastic trim and Trek Armor seat covers.

X2 trek armor is the only way to go! And mine weighs a little more ;-)

This way the hairs eventually find their way to the floor and I don't have to use a roller before I go to work every morning. I can live with a half-dozen hairs on my slacks, but it's too much many right now.

For the record, my dogs haven't even been in my Jeep; this is all hair that's attached itself to my body while I'm in the house and found its way to the jeep -- normally via my shoes. Other than shaving my dogs (and I've considered it) I'm cursed with dog hair as in every aspect of my life. I've even deposited some in hotels in Australia. I'm (or my JRT is) a menace to the world.

Thanks!
That's hilarious! My JRT gives me the same fits. Pull his hair out of the seats daily and he's never been in the Jeep. For the record, my Boston's hair stays on his body.

The only solution is to shave the Russell.

X3 on the treck armor covers. I have a husky/shepherd mix and my black carpet is now white. It will come out in a couple of months, but the sears needed to be addressed first. Put the covers on and I can just brush the hair off. It is soo much better.

x4 on the Trek Armor's. The hair just wipes right off along with any debris from their feet.

OK, Trek Armor. I guess that's the answer. Anyone have the olive drab with a commando green jeep? I'm wondering if the colors are close enough or if it would look wrong.

The first thing we do; shave all the JRTs

I have olive inserts and black outsides. Looks awesome. I think the colors are very close. If you contact Mitch with trek armor he will send you samples so you can see the colors for yourself. Can't wait to see them with the doors off in the summer.

The dog hair has worked into the covers but not so much worked thru to the seats themselves.
Not sure if this helps..............
I also have the Dickies covers and the hair just wipes away. A wipe or a lint roller or damp cloth it's gone. Love them!

My dog just has to walk past the Jeep and I find hair in it. I did get a cheapy cover from wally world but its too slick and my dog slides right off onto the floor if I stop too fast.
Dickies look like a better option..

Now that is interesting. Trek Armor is local to me so I gave them a call. They specifically said neoprene was better for dog hair and that it would probably stick more to their seat material (polyester). The guy I spoke to must not have had dogs. I may have to re-consider these once I pull off the stupid Smittys.
Does anyone know if they're washable? And are they so tight that you'll never want to pull them off to wash them? (Catch 22).

OK, thanks GSDgirl. I was hoping that might be the case.

I've got the Iggees also, works great.. We have three terriers, not really shedders but a little does happen. As far as our dogs, they stay inside everywhere.... My wife once said " That's why they call it Fur-niture, for the pets"....

Consider feeding your dogs high quality foods, or even home prepared. High quality diets cause most dogs to develop thicker fur and shed much much less. If brushed, some will never shed on their own.

I have 6 dogs in fact, and its hard to find hair/fur anywhere. It's an investment when paying for high quality food.

With that being said, none of them are allowed in our $35k wrangler. Ha, but sorry dogs. They have to go everywhere in the Compass...

I bought Coverking Ballistic Nylon : Custom car seat covers for on the job vehicles
Very tough.

But, most importantly, I bought them in the same color as the dog....
....and I try to wear pants in the same color as the dog....

The carpet in the jk is like a magnet for dog hair I swear. I put my GSD in there the other day and spent like a hour getting all the hair out with tape :/.
