Ordered the Jeep logo towels. Terrible quality...washed them twice but they are leaving tiny white fibers all over my black seats. What a ripoff for $30 EACH. Will be picking up some real seat covers soon.

Yeah, don't. Use regular towels if you need to- from TJ Maxx or Marshalls...and modify them. These are thin, smell funny, and I am very disappointed in the shedding. I paid $60 for two. I have no idea what to do with them just yet. I mentioned this to the Quadratec rep, but never heard back.

Wet Okole, neoprene, sans graphics....they fit great, easy enough to install, 5000 miles they still look great.

These have to be at least a bit handmade as the headrest cuts were weird.

Wait time for shipping was a couple of weeks...

BTW I have seat airbags....

looks like 520 shipped is the going rate for front/back non-customized TAs

anybody have any hints on any deals that are cheaper than this?

Got mine for $514 so $520 is right there- about as cheap as they're going to come. Well worth it IMO if you're in the market for high quality covers.

Ordered mine the other day from rebeloffroad, $520 and free shipping. They said 3 - 4 weeks since the drop ship from TA and are custom made. Best price I have seen around.

I love mine. Getting the lower part fed between the cushions is a bit tricky.

I thought so too, until I broke out one of the vinyl decal application squeegee things. It's semi-rigid and flat so it worked like a charm. It made the only crappy part of my installation a thousand times easier.

Here is what I'm talking about:

LOL

I shoved an old magazine between the cushions to allow the flap to feed easily. The damn Velcro kept getting hung. After I got the flap fed I just pulled the magazine out.

Whatever works!

Exactly, whatever works. The velcro is definitely what makes it tough. Finesse won't do the trick, it just needs some solid manpower.

I should add that I only covered the front seats as the rear is usually sitting on the garage floor.

However, the trek armor is so nice I may do the back seat just for shiggles.

I got the wet okoles, easy install, perfect fit. And they don't even look like seat covers after a few weeks. They were pricey, and you gotta wait a nearly a month to get em'.

Are the Smittybilt neoprene really as bad as people say? They look good, spray some UV protector and with a buy front/get rear free deal from Quadratec, would it be dumb of me to get these? Bare in mind, these are seat covers. The whole point for me getting them is to let them get beat up and take the heat, so that's why I'm trying to get them cheap.

I don't usually go the cheap route, and I would agree with you, but these seat covers are really only being used during the spring/summer and are meant for taking all the beating of those months. I have leather seats, so I just enjoy those during the winter. Do you think it's still worth getting the Trek Armor?

Yes they do not melt to you when setting on them for long times, last summer I had a storm roll in with the doors and top off, it filled the floor boards to overfilling with water and I wiped the seats off and in an hr I could sit on them with no water transfer to my as* ! I lived in Ca for 20+ years and surfed all the time. The wet suite material that wet oak uses VS the material Trek Amor uses is night in day in water repellant and sun fade!!!
