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 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.

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?

Seat covers

I have or shall I say just brought a 2008 jeep wrangler and have been trying to find out which BESTOP Seat cover to buy for this year model. I've even written to Bestop inc but have not heard anything back. Does anyone know WHICH COVER to order. I've heard good things about Bestop and was hoping for this brand Vs a Neoprene cover

I've been super happy with my Marathon Seat Covers. Available in several colors and several camo patterns, custom made when you order of Cordura. Waterproof and tough. Had mine I think 3 years now and still look as good as the day I put them on.

without a doubt, Trek Armor. I've seen a lot of jeep covers, even ordered a few different ones I ended up sending back. The Trek Armors look and fit so well they are well worth the money, I'm glad I went that direction.

Has anybody used Cabelas TrailGear seat covers? They have great reviews on their site and are at a great price.

I agree 100%..... Iggees are the absolute best jeep covers ive ever used. Custom fit, easy to install, wear fantastic, clean easily and look great. Ive had mine a couple of years too. I dive or metal detect about every day and jump right in on them with my wet suit..... just wipe them off when i get home. They also dont smell..... some do.

I originally made the mistake buying Smittybilt GEAR covers (horrible experience) and now have Trek Armor and couldn't be happier.

I've got a set in my f250. I like them a lot. Fit snugly and fairly easy to remove. I cover the leather for hunting season and remove them in the spring.
