Smittybuilt Seat Covers- 2012 JK Only FYI

Just an FYI to 2012 JK'ers looking for seat covers- the Smittybuilts don't fit. More specifically- the rear headrest covers aren't the right size. Everything else is fine (front, front headrests and rear). I called Quadratech when I initially realized it and they immediately sent me replacements from Smittybuilt- and those didn't fit either. I called Smitty direct and they informed me that they fit a 2012 JK. Except they don't. Photo included. We were sort of at a standstill. I actually like the covers (that fit) and didn't want to go through the hassle of removing them so Quadratech gave me a small credit. I don't use the rear seat much and if I do I leave the rearview site blockers/headrests off anyway. Its not a big problem for me but I wanted to save others the hassle.
Quadratech said they would look into it with Smittybuilt but for the moment if you order rear seat covers you stand a good chance they won't fit.

Just to try it, I have those on my 2012 and I used the rear head rest covers and they fit the front and the fronts fit the rear... Not sure if mine was a mess up but it ended up working


Nevermind, mine were for the 4 door model different rear seats... Maybe thats the problem, you need some 4 door rear headrest covers lol

Noticed that as well, figured I got the wrong ones but since I took the headrests off I just ignored it.

That's probably part of it- Quadratech said they hadn't heard of any issues but if no one uses the headrests no one cares. If a tree falls in the forest .....
