A tight fit isn't necessary and they don't have to look fancy.

Thanks for any suggestions.

My solution was buying a grommet kit and D-ring from Lowes and a couple of beach towels from Costco. Cheap, easy solution for the drive home from the gym.

I have the Trek Armor covers for my Wrangler. For my Grand Cherokee with leather seats, we use the Seat Armor towel covers when needed. They are heavy weight, and loop over the headrest. No tucking or pinning to fuss with.

The beach towel D-ring is awesome! I use mine all the time though I purchased the jeep towel that had the d-ring included, approx. $20 bucks online. Living in Texas with black leather seats it gets hawtttt and you can just take the towel out and wash and repeat.

  • Neoprene material is awesome, cleans up really easy, My Golden's fur that sheds wipes off with a wet rag - perfect seat covers for me.
  • These fit very snug - you cannot tell they are seat covers
  • Have no clue, I've had them 3 weeks and have a 2013 jeep.
  • $169.99 for both front and back.
When you got these, do they allow for the side airbags? I'm looking into some (1st Jeep is on the way!) but I thought I'd check first - quadratec's website does not say.

Been looking for seat covers for my new rubicon 10A unlimited also... Waiting on samples...still going back and forth on covering the red leather, may opt for the hanging towel idea as needed for a while. I am also looking for protection for the cargo area( have 6 dogs) anyone have the hamilton pet liner or the canvasback liner? Thanks

height adjustment?

I was looking at some of the coverking offerings and they have 2 options, with hight adjustment and without. I just ordered a 2014 sport s and cant seem to find any information on if my jk will come with that feature or not.

... have been looking here https://www.fleet.chrysler.com/v7fle...yers_Guide.pdf

soooooo what do some people with 2013 sport s's have?

I want to have some red/black seat covers ready to throw on when my anvil jeep gets here ( try to make a poor mans 10A ) any reason I should stay away from coverking?

I bought some front covers for my 2013 JK Sahara off eBay for $70 including shipping. Nice quality and white stitching. Black and gray. Fit is perfect and the brand tag was cut off. Thinking they were originally cover crafts or some name brand sold wholesale. Whatever, they are really nice and neoprene wears well and stays dry

Also looking for covers for the airbag seats. Wetokole's website says "PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DON'T PROVIDE A COVER FOR SIDE BOLSTERS THAT HAVE AIRBAGS" Thats a direct quote from their site in the order section.

Trek armors website says "At this time, we aren't making the seat covers compatible for seats with internal airbags. There is no guarantee that there is enough pressure for the air bag to deploy and have enough power to go through the stitching on the actual seat, and then also get through a flap of some sort on our seat covers. It just creates a lot of liability, and we don't want to cause any issues in case of an accident. Trust me, we would love to do this, but without a lot of testing like we do for our other military seats, it is something that can take a lot of time to insure everything is done perfectly. I know some other manufacturers offer seat covers for those seats with internal air bags, but if you end up going that route, please make sure they have done testing (and ask for the written results) to make sure the air bags will still deploy without any issues."

Starting to think there will never be a quality seat cover for the airbag equipped JK seats.

My seat covers came specifically for air bag equipped seats.

Wow ok, That's good news. Maybe the wetokole Jeep Wrangler order page is outdated then? Because I did a copy and paste "PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DON'T PROVIDE A COVER FOR SIDE BOLSTERS THAT HAVE AIRBAGS" right from the order page when I tried to order seat covers.

OK, I just checked the website again. I think it was because I was in the rear seat covers order page. Not sure why they would even mention that because I don't think JK rear seats come with airbags right?

Trek armor is the way to go...the guy will send you samples of the material very quickly if you ask. The OD matches the army green jk perfectly! Good luck!

I am looking at doing the same thing, I like the red/ anvil look. I was thinking about ordering wet okele but Im not positive if I want to do all red or a combo of red and black. Not sure if I did all red how it would look. Does anyone know what the true color of the red leather they have in the 10A is? I'm just afraid if I went all red it would not look as good.

For those with trek armor, How are you guys tying the front seat bottom? There is a loop and a straight cord I'm the back. No instructions so I've just been leaving it hanging

Bottom seat cord

After getting the bottom covers on, I pulled the cord until the covers hugged against the seat and tied a knot under the seat. You can tie off the cord without it interfering when you slide the seats.

How does the grey Trek Armor material hold up to dirt? I'm thinking about ordering black covers with the grey center section but I'm concerned that the grey will look nasty after a year or two. Anyone with the grey seat covers that can chime in?

They are usually 4-6 weeks to make, unless they have a set already in stock. I lucked out and got mine right away.

do most of yall get the seat covers more for the protection or the look?

Also, what's the selection like for those with the supplementary side airbags? not good I'm guessing. Do you think any of these covers can be modded to accommodate for them?

what I like also about the Trek Armor seat covers is that on the non-leather
seats they firm up the seat cushion material. Much more comfortable than
in the stock seat form.

I just installed the SmittyBilt neoprene seat covers on my 2013 2 door. They fit very well, easy to install and they look better that I expected. I paid $170 on ebay.

Heads up they stain easy. Any dirty water marks don't go away.

When it comes to Trek armor, the answer is Yes!

I know from talking to Mitch at TrekArmor that approval for side SRS is a difficult task. He advised that should a seller of seat covers claim to have the approval, you should ask for copies of the approval paperwork as few, if any, have received approval.

I spoke with Mitch and ordered a set from Trek Armor just over 3 weeks ago. Seemed like a good guy and was very happy after I ordered them. I called twice this week to get an update and see how much longer it might be and both times was told that he would call me back. I have yet to receive a call back from them and am wondering if anyone has had any similar experiences? I know that they take a while to make so I'm not complaining about that... Just the fact that I haven't gotten an update.
