I'm getting ready to order mine in the next month
or so. I read several reviews ad go feedback for people that have them. As much as I love the no piping and 1/2 piping I'm afraid the green is going to fade over time an not look good-
For that reason I'm ordering full piping when I get mine.
Good luck with whatever you get I'm anxious to see them in your Jeep since we both have Gecko Green.

Full piping. If you have a big expanse of green on the seats then a) it could be a bit overpowering, and b) if the green isn't a perfect match then it will not look right.

A friend of mine mentioned his piping got dirty really quick and now looks like poo.Not sure how the lime piping will last. I was leaning towards the no piping with lime center . Im not worried about it fading in couple of years as my windows are tinted 30% and if I like them and they need replaced in a few years I will. Just not sure which way to go. Wife wont chime in because shes afraid I wont like them when I get them and blame her lol.

Any recommendations on where to order from ? Who will ship quicker ? Im looking on quadratec as well as direct from Wet Okole and price is same.Just wonder who can ship quickest.

If you translate okole, you essential said "Help me pick wet butt".

I'd rather not.

I love that blue colour. I'm in the process of trying to decide whether to get those or the neon orange ones for my black JKU. I think seeing them in that picture might have just made up my mind.

May want to switch the color pattern; put the dark in the center and accent on the sides
The center will soil/discolor quicker

I had yellow half piping in a truck I had. They faded very badly within a year. Have had the full piping in my Gecko for almost a year now. No fading of the lime green piping or black so far. Very happy with the color match and no fading. Drivers seat is showing a little wear with 11k on them. Not that bad but visible.

I didn't do the piping on mine, but I got a black JK, if you got green, you gotta get the piping. It looks pretty good to me.

Black with full piping bright green looks awesome on a Gecko. Nothing beats it in my opinion. I have black with full piping dark green on my Black Forest Green. Love it and get compliments on it all the time. Whatever you decide you won't regret these seat covers!!

Thanks for all the input folks. I finally got the wife to give her input. Told her I had decided and it didnt matter what she picked I would order what I had picked. So she said she liked the no piping with the lime center which is what I was leaning towards. So we all know if the wife is happy we are happy. I just placed the order direct from Wet Okole . Thanks again for posting you choice. I will post pics when I get them on.Looks like 3-4 weeks wait time...............
