I have dog hair and mud all over my trek Armor covers right now. Pit bull dog hair so very similar to bulldog. Tomorrow when I have time to clean it ill let you know how it was.

I am going to order a set of marathon seat covers. I really like the Cordura material. I had a set of AEV's Cordura seat covers on my '12 and loved them. When I traded for a '13, I tried to transfer them but they didn't fit we'll on the redesigned seats. Cordura is not for everyone. It doesn't fit like a glove like most seat cover fabrics. It's more function and durability rather than looks. I personally like the look though.

I emailed Marathon about some sample fabric squares so I could pick a color. They showed up today.



I have a '13 JK in billet with black interior. I think I'm going to go with the "Smoke" color. Although I am toying with the idea of a two tone with "Silver Dust". That is an extra $40 though. I'm just getting a front set. I rarely even have the back seat in the Jeep.

I'll post pics when they arrive and I get them installed. I think the wait is about 2 - 3 weeks because they custom make every order.

I ordered and returned a set of Smitybilt GEAR seat covers. Just not what I had hoped for. After reading here of the Trek Armor I ordered a set. I'm not a logo fan but was unable to get a set without logos. What I did get was black fabric with black logos. After four weeks, brown Santa came in February with my new seat covers. This, boys and girls, is quality stuff. Very heavy duty and the stitching is well done and reinforced where it should be. Getting them on was, well, a PIA but the fit is fantastic. I've opted for no head rests for the present, partly to let the fabric mold to the seats and partly so I can see out the back. They come with two bags, one for each seat. I'd gladly order more bags from Trek Armor but I can't find them on their website. (HINT!!!!) I found the MOLLE loops just the right size for a c-cell flashlight, besides taking other MOLLE gear.

If you're looking for well made seat covers, as others have said, these are the ones. I still could have done without the logos but I'll suffer through that for the high quality I received.

Before pics with dried mud and dog hair:











what i used to clean:



After pics:









Only took me about 10 minutes to clean. These seats clean very easily!!! I just used the brush first to wipe off the hair and dried dirt, then i used a wet rag to get rid of any leftover, waited a few minutes, then i used the brush again to get rid of the lint from the wet rag.

easy as pie!!

trek armor rocks!!

I think I am ready to spring on a set of coverkings from the big Q, especially as they throw in the back cover for $169 total. Now I am thinking I want to put some seat heaters under the covers while I am at it. Any excuse to extend top off/doors off season. Any recommendations? I see cheapo on amazon for around $15, even saw one at my local hardware store for $20. I am looking for something that plugs into 12v lighter on dash and has a temp control. Any suggestions?

I'm running the Trek Armor black and granite covers in the front and will be ordering the rear set next week. These covers are amazing.

I am seriously considering the Trek Armors. Our bare bones jeep has vinyl seats now and when we are out riding in the summer time the vinyl is horrible because it doesn't breathe at all. Would someone that has the Trek Armors please speak to how well they breathe? Thanks!

Wet Okole

I bought Wet Okole for my 2011 and they have been fantastic. They are a little pricey, but if you want something that lasts you should expect to pay a few extra dollars. I got black covers and matched the logo and piping with the color of the jeep which was almost a perfect match! Definitely the best seat cover I have ever purchased.

I sweat more than anyone person should and I can tell you have I am very happy with how the trek armor covers kept me cool. Even when the top is off and the sun is beating down on them they are cooler than just the stock seat cover. Any seat cover is going to get hot in the sun, but these seem to cool down faster than others.

If you are on the fence about these, I would tell you to go for it. I have not heard of one person that has bought these and been disappointed. I know they cost more than most, but they are worth every penny.

Thanks Chum. I understand that when it's hot it just hot but vinyl is just miserable.

Anyone else feel this way too? I want a good seat cover so I'm willing to pay extra, but if Coverking/Wet Okole are THAT similar why not just go with the cheaper one, and its MUUUCCCHHH cheaper at that.

I'd like to see more pictures of the Coyote colored Trek Armor covers. I love that color. Anyone with Commando Green exterior and dark saddle interior have these yet?

I finally got a chance to put on my Iggees on my front seats this weekend. I also took the time to add seat heat while I was at it, so I took em out and spent good time getting it right. I'll put more pics in a build thread sooner or later. I'll get to the back seat next weekend....hopefully.

These covers rock: Excellent fit, pet hair falls right off, scratch and water resistant, and the make the inside of my Jeep look awesome. Look at the comparison of the Iggee vs. OEM.

Those Iggees look nice! I like how they seem to add to the very weak bolster in the OEM seats.

Spoke with Mitch at Trek Armor today. Very helpful. He's sending out some fabric swatches to me. Once I take a look at them for color, I'll order them up.
Nothing but positive reviews here, great looking product and customer support is 1st rate.

What did you ordered?

For those who has leather seats under their seat covers, any fear that the cover scratches the leather under?

I just ordered the G.E.A.R seat covers from Smittybilt. From the research I've done they've received mixed reviews. I purchased them for the extra storage capacity.

I'm currently searching for high quality/reputable full seat covers for UV protection (and then have the G.E.A.R covers on top of those). Will update with what I find and will post pics and a review of the G.E.A.R covers when I get them installed in a week or so.

If it's just material (no metal buttons or straps under body weight or being compressed into the leather) I would bet no additional wear or tear on the underlying leather would occur - at least nothing more than say, wearing a pair of jeans would while driving around frequently. Just an opinion, I have yet to confirm this.

I don't understand. Why didn't you just go with Trek Armors and stone both of those birds? Then you wouldn't have to deal with something that gets mixed (mostly bad) reviews.

Good question. TrekArmor is a good product (honestly would choose it) but they currently don't have a seat cover design that accommodates seats with side airbags installed. Prospects for a new design were rumored for February of this year - it may be a bit longer than that before a new TrekArmor design is tangible.
