Best Seat Covers?

Well I need some seat covers for my 2001 Sport as they are pretty stained from the previous owner (just looks nasty). So which was have the most snug fit and look the best?

I bought the Bestop seat covers for my 01 TJ and could not be happier.

I hear a lot of complaints about neoprene seat covers. I just installed a set and like them so far. The biggest complaints are about how they don't breathe, hot in the summer, and hold water like a sponge. We'll see. I do like the look of the Rugged Ridge seat covers...pretty bad ass!

I have been very happy with my Iggee seat covers. They are expensive (~$200 for the fronts, IIRC) but fit very well, are well made and look like custom seats.

The very last type of seat cover I would consider would be any that are made from neoprene like Wet Okole's are. Neoprene is not waterproof and it even soaks up perspiration. And if the seats get rained on or something spills without you wiping the neoprene off quickly, it will soak into the neoprene and take days to dry out. and the colored nylon covers that they offer fade quickly and unevenly when exposed to the sun. Black becomes purple, red becomes pink, etc.

Personally, I've had two sets of Bestop's seat covers (two different TJs) and like them a lot.
When you have a choice, buy American.

The Bestop seat covers fit great and they are wicked rugged. Love 'em. I have had the neoprene ones and they are terrible, and not as easy to clean as the Bestop ones.

I have the Bestop covers as well...they have held up great for the past 2 years. The only gripe I've had with them...girls in short skirts find them quite cold during the winter and if you don't have a sun shade (ie Spiderweb Shade) when parked topless on a sunny summer day, they will let you know really quickly that they get warm in the sun as your bare legs hit them. They'll make you sweat a bit more on hot days too since they don't allow your skin to breathe nearly as well...but that's good in a way cuz that means rain also won't soak through them if you get rained on while topless.

Thumbs up Think beads!

They may look corny but man, those cabbie style bead covers are really good - I wish someone made them in some decent colors. Im thinking of coloring or staining mine black.

Here in the Caribbean, neoprene seat covers are in the majority

I've got Okole's. Not as hot as the vinyl OEMs I have on Chevy express van. Not as carefree as the cloth seats on both of my wannabes. Very comfortable & a good tight fit. They are pricey but at this time I'm a fan. Maybe in 6 months I'll decide these aren't for me.

I like my bestop covers because I can scrub them down with soap in the jeep and spray them too. Come out clean and smells nice.

Sorry to derail the thread, but your steering wheel looks brand new as well! How'd you do it?
