subscribed, I'm looking at getting a set as well. I believe kbbwolf has some so im sure he will chime in at some point. seem like a great think to help protect the seats and they look great to with the custom colors and all.
I can see one spot where the cloth seats would be prone to wear. When I swing out of the door, I sort of slide my butt off of the edge and Ill bet that the back end of the side bolster will wear out before too long (50k mi or there abouts).
Any comments regarding how hot the neoprene seat covers get in the summer? I've read comments indicating they can actually be hotter in the summer. My black leather seats get a bit toasty, so I'm looking for something to cool it down a bit.
Neoprene does not breath well. Canoe-butt is almost a certainty. I don't have neoprene seats but as a diver for almost 20 years, neoprene gets hot and and makes you sweaty. That's why we wear it to stay warm under water.
I would love to hear what someone with neoprene seats says though. As far as how comfortable they may be, I would guess pretty good, unless its a 95║ day with the top down.
The American Dream is not to own a house, car, and be employed. It's the freedom to pursue them.
I had my top down for about two years - summer and winter up here in Maryland. The cheapo neoprene did a good job of keeping the stock seats in tact. Yeah they get hot in the summer, but the rag you keep to dry up puddles when it rains also fits on the seat to keep the heat down.

Are the Wet Okole's neoprene or some other material?

You can take a jeeper out of the jeep...but you cannot take the jeep, out of the jeeper
People are like slinky's- there fun to watch when you push them down the stairs
Just curious... I bought direct from wet okole for an old tacoma..is it cheaper thru quadratec? I loved them in the old truck..they were kid proof
I am big on protection and have been thinking about adding some seat covers. I checked out Quadratec and Wet Okole websites, the price is about the same. To cover the front and rear seats on m JKUR, it will be about $500; about half the cost of the seats to begin with. Not sure how they will work with the seat wamer I have in the stock seats.

If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them.
I have them on my Jeep already there when I bought it and I love them & they look great...as for sweating or getting swamp ass I have never experienced that, when the doors are off & the top down you will get air circulating and if everything is on just hit the A/C
I have the Rugged Ridge Neoprene seat covers for the front and rear from Qtec. They have been wet and there has been no problems. I put them on the seats when I lived in FL, and now I'm stationed in PR and there has been no case of swamp ass.
