Long lead times on Jk stuff?

I'm a long time forum lurker, first time thread starter with a 14 jku thats about 2 months old(loving every mile). I bought some of the trek armor front seat covers, over a month ago and they still haven't even shipped. Also bought some of the JCR offroad sliders(a week ago) and they haven't shipped either. A week isn't so bad since maybe they are backed up because if the holidays, but a month... Is that a normal lead time on some seat covers? anyone have a long lead on JCR stuff? I was thinking about getting the prerunner stubby bumper too.

Trek armor usually takes a bit but well worth the wait.

Also as you said, it's the holiday season so you can see delays from many sources during this time of year.

I believe the trek Armors are pretty much made to order, since you can specify the inset color and piping. I think that lead time is pretty common. Email Mitch though. He's typically quick to reply and can confirm where in the process your covers are.

I've never ordered from JCR and don't remember reading anything about long lead times, but I do know they had an awesome Black Friday sale that's probably got them bogged down. I know ACE is weeks out from shipping on some items, and I'd think JCR is in the same boat. Have you tried to email them to see what their lead time is?

Good luck!

A lot of the smaller companies build products as they get orders, so the wait time is longer. My expedition one has been almost a month now (already shipped) but good things come to those who wait. Shrockworks takes it to an extreme though....8 month waits!

It took me about 10 weeks to get my Trek Armors and it was a straight up hassle. 4WP where I bought them was no help whatsoever, wouldn't return a call. So I went to Mitch directly and had trouble there too. After about 4 weeks of "they'll be on this week's truck" I finally got them.

But they're well made and they look awesome. Worth the hassle? Probably. I just wish they hadn't told me a 2 week leadtime.

We are always around 10-12 business days lead time. Many cases, we are a little faster. We got slammed in Nov and BF. We just finished the Jig on the new JK sliders and those are ready for production! We'll be shipping them by the end of this week, first of next!

I have emailed trek armor and they responded quickly. They let me know it would be ready last week or early this week, but I haven't seen any change on the order page. I definitely figure the seat covers would take longer to make than the sliders would though. Just excited and impatient. Thanks folks.

Trek Armor may be caught up. I ordered a front set Black with Graphite insert with no custom thread work yesterday (Tuesday) and got them today (Wednesday). I'm about 150 road miles from Trek. Maybe only the custom thread jobs are backordered?

Got the covers about 90% installed. Either the covers are a bit small or I need to start working out more. I need to get the driver's side seat back cover down another inch or so and the passenger side needs to come down 4 or so inches.

Regards,

Do a YouTube search for an install video. Some guys put a piece of plastic under so they'll slide on easier. They then pull the plastic out. I was able to pull mine down without it. Just keep working it down evenly.

Yeah you're just gonna have to pull hard, magazine trick doesn't work on the sliding down step of putting the top cover on. Use the magazine once you've got it pulled all the way down and are ready to Velcro through.

Yup. I watched a couple of vids PRIOR to doing the install. I tried the plastic bag trick over the seat back but after getting the cover down about 1/3 of the way, I couldn't slide out the bag without ripping the bag.

I eventually got both covers down enough by turning them inside out and then rolling them down. This allowed me to insert one hand into the inside-out cover and push down on alternating sides while using my other hand to fold in the seat bolster.

It may not be the "recommended" method but it worked for me.

Regards,
