Ok guys I'm sure to get crap for this post and or choice but thoughts please
I purchase wet okole covers for 2013 wrangler after 4 weeks they came in, installed look great a bit pricey but nice!!

On the drivers side I went with heat seat add on ... Yes I'm older and ok like a toasty butt if cold..

Anyway the thick velcro they use is sewn over the seams and when sitting on them bugged my legs..... Cover seam thick velcro


Great idea but Velcro really???!!!! Brand new covers that thick Velcro covers the sewn seems which bother my legs while sitting in my jeep!!
Took out folded Velcro over the pad held down with duck tape much better!!!

Seam discomfort gone!!

But now I feel the thick ASS velcro under my butt!!


Seriously you have got to have a different solution !!!

Can you sew the heater pockets in NO VELCRO

pretty sad a company this large requiring me to ship back and wait at my own expense AND wait more time to fix this issues "MAYBE"

So yesterday mind you I got them Monday I called after talking to immigration twice... Was told above and on person said he would call me back in an hour and a half with a solution...

NEVER CALLED BACK!!


Kind thoughts please

this is who I bought from and the installer said the brand are the same quality as katzkin but they don't market themselves much. dealers use these skins a lot according to my shop. i also bought the airbag version even though I don't have air bags.

Covers for penny pinchers.

Believe me I appreciate the very cool covers you folks have installed. I just couldn't spend that kind of money on something my a$$ is going to sit on so I got these at Cabelas. $20 per front seat and universal fit. No slight on the high end products as I have had Wet Okole covers in the past and they were excellent.

If you are a fan of different camo and having the MOLLE attachments I would check out www.kingsarsenal.com Coverking makes these just for them with all of the camo and solid colors.

Nope, they don't get too hot at all.

Does anyone have any recommendations for easy on, easy off washable covers that will protect my seats when I drive home sweaty from the gym?

The Jeep Towels from Quadratec would work for that.

I think I am liking the Kryptec black seat covers by King's Arsenal. I think these would look great on my new '13 billet 4dr. Anybody have experience with these or seen these first hand?

I just installed Trek Armor covers in my 2013 2-Dr Rubicon. Trek Armor is the only company I know of that make seat covers specifically for 2013 JKs (the 2013 seats - at least the front seats -- are different from previous years). Getting them on was a bit of a struggle because of the tight fit, but I expected that with custom seat covers, so no complaints. It was a tad unnerving cutting the openings for the head rests, but I had read about this and seen videos, so I was prepared. I cut slightly larger openings so I could tuck the material under the plastic grommets. You'll need to do this if you want to access the buttons that allow you to adjust or remove the head rests. I love the zippered pockets, molle straps and the storage bags that come with the covers. I can't imagine a more rugged material - it should last a long time. The seat covers look and feel great. Frankly, I can't imagine a better value.

I wish Trek Amor would make these for 13's with airbag seats. Love the covers and would like to add them.

I'm a big fan of Trek Armors. I will say they have had some shipping delays..at least Coyote. So both my orders took longer to ship than expected. It was not that big of a deal. These covers will be in the Jeep for a long time so a couple of extra weeks is not that big of a deal. They are the best looking best fitting and most durable seat covers for the Jeeps. Wet Butt seats don't come anywhere close to the quality and usability.

So much easier to install them all you take the seats out. It can be done with them in, but its well worth the extra 15 mins IMO to unbolt take out, and install.

I got the wet okole seat covers, and they're pretty great. Love the feel and quality of the fabric. My only complaint I can truly bring against them is I wish they were labeled left/right, it added a good 30 minutes to the installation time putting them on backwards... but that's more user error than anything. Also how they fit around the foot of the seat could be a little neater especially for the price. Also though I don't mind it, some people will mind the lack of map/cargo pocket on the back of the cover. Overall great covers, they look great, feel great, and you can tell they're quality just by looking at them.

I wanted the Trek Armors but I have side air bags so I had to modify them myself. I'm not talking about a rinky dink job that I "hope" will split apart in the event of an airbag deployment. It took a lot of experimentation to get just the right strength of thread and stitch combo. Obviously I don't have a bunch of spare airbag units to do actual testing so for me to feel confident in what I ended up with it had to be a seam just barely strong enough to hold up to installation and daily use. The stitch pattern and thread strength is light enough that I could hold it out in front of me at arms length and easily pop it apart, yet it's holding up perfectly and looks professionally done. I have heavy duty sewing machines that I use to sew nylon webbing so this material was no problem. And before someone gets up on their high horse and starts ranting about safety violations and lack of real deployment testing, etc etc, let me just say this......This is a decision I made for ME. I didn't take it lightly and I put as much time and thought into it as I could. It's my life and they are my seat covers. What I ended up with is something that I have MORE confidence in than some covers from some manufacturer who SAYS that his seat covers are air bag compatible. I'm not recommending anybody else do this, I'm just stating what I have done. That is all.
