JK 2011 Seat Covers

Hi all,

Just got my 2011 Wrangler a few days ago, and being a parent, my first order of business is getting some good, waterproof seat covers :P Yes, kids can be messier than off-roading.

I was on Quadratec's site and they list most of their covers for JK as 07-10... do you know if there's a difference with the '11? Thanks in advance.

As far as I know they didn't change the seats, but I am not positive. A lot of stuff that says 07-10 WILL work on the 11 because they are the same in many ways, but a few things have changed.

do you have side airbags? a lot of the seat covers won't work with the airbags.

Do any of the seat covers work with the side airbags?

The only way the kids would be messy is if you allowed them to have something that could become messy while they're in the Jeep.

A lot of products just haven't updated their years yet. Give Quad a call and ask about the seat covers; the phone rep may have a better answer than their product database.

I'm not sure of the answer, because we don't make seat covers for JK's at all yet.

Not true. My two toddlers (about to be three) can spontaneously create astonishing messes given nothing but the air around them and less than 10 seconds. Where fluid is not allowed, it can be smuggled. Where it doesn't exist, it can be . . . manufactured. They're like the MacGyver of mess making. I can sympathize with the OP.

One of those metal wire cages for the rear of the Jeep should help contain the mess. Maybe put a rubber liner underneath it.

Seatglovers also make a set of neoprene "waterproof" seat covers with airbags. I just installed them on mine. Check e-bay, they constantly have auctions.

Thanks for all of the responses! I ordered seatglovers, as they were selling the whole set on clearance for $199 (black). I also used a promo code for free shipping (FREESHIP), so a good deal all around.

I'll update this thread with my impressions when they arrive.

Here's the scoop...I had a 08 4 dr, had the neoprene seat covers on it and they were great! Lease ran out and I just bought a 4 dr. 2011 Sahara in Tan. Got the new Jeep in October and have been searching for seat covers. Quadratec said the 07-10 covers would wok--NOT TRUE! When I received them I could not get the headrest cover on, but it seams that the seat portion was OK. Sent them back and talked to customer service about it. Apparently, w/ the new interior design on the 11 the seats have changed. Do NOT order any covers for your 11, they are not compatable yet. Quadratec says the Coverking is working on the new pattern but does not know when it will be completed. I do know that Marathon seat covers can make them, very expensive. Also Wet Okole says they will have the 11 design by late Jan. Maybe early Feb. Very expensive, too! Be sure you contact any manufacturer before you order to see if they are new 11 design because they are different!

Got my Seatglovers installed today. A few notes:
* Not a fun January activity
* The cold may have made the material less maleable, which probably didn't help.
* The covers I got on clearance were for seats with or without side airbags. Which means they had the extra hole cut. Since I do not have the side airbags, they're pointless and kind of unsightly.
* The neoprene seems nice so far and is very soft. The black color matches my interior very well.
* Had some trouble with the headrest covers. They are a tough fit.
* Had to remove the backseat to put the cover on, obviously. Front seats were ok though.
* The covers are bound under the seat by straps w/ plastic buckles, like this: http://www.bulkstrap.com/images/side/plastic_buckle.jpg ... they are cheap and hard to tighten because they'll keep coming apart. They'll hold with some finagling though.

Overall, I rate the purchase as "Ok", considering the price I got ($200) with free shipping. I was put off by the cheap buckles but hopefully they'll hold. The covers may prove their worth over time, though.

Pics can be taken if requested.

Had the seat glovers brand on my 08 4 dr. I agree, they were just OK, especially the straps under the seats. Once they stretch and form they will loosen up, I ended up tying mine in a knot. I am surprised you were able to get it to fit on the front headrest??? The ones I ordered from Quad. would not even come close to fitting on my new 11. I am almost positive that the seats stayed the same from the 07-10 model, I think it is the headrest that has changed, which essentially makes any purchase of a set annoying. I think I am going w/ the Wet Okole when they come out with the 11 pattern. BTW, do yourself a favor and spray that UV stuff on them. I did not, had the top down all the time and they fade like crazy. Enjoy!

2011 Wrangler seat cover update. . .Took the plunge last night and ordered seat covers from Iggee. Have read nothing but positive results from them, called the company the other day and asked if they could make the 11 model. I received a response back that it will take them a week or so to get the measurements from the manufacturer and guarranteed fit for me. Said I would have the seat covers on my doorstep within three weeks. Once I receive them I will post if they are a true 11 fit and my thoughts on the covers!

Congrads, be sure that when you get the covers, you set them in the sun for at least 30 minutes before installing-especially the headrests-

That might be an issue, I live in Ohio and we are experiencing 10 degree weather with about 6 inches of snow. I'm far too impatient to wait until April when the weather turns. . .I might lay them out in the basement next to the furnace.
Thanks for the tip!

Did you have any fit issues with your WO's? I considered ordering them before I ordered some IG's, didn't think they had the 11 specs yet??? Anyway, congrats, let us know what you think of them after a few weeks. I would also splurge and get some of the UV spray, the neoprene fades fairly easy (red=pink, black=purple, etc. . .).

Looks nice! I looked on quadratec and on Wet Okoles website and quadratec only has a percentage of all the colors and options. I may order straight from the Wet Okoles to get the color I want.
