I'm afraid they will fade quickly though. the jeep had a set in it just like them when I ought it and the were gray and pink.

But I got the whole set for $250...we'll see what they do in the long run.

Amazon.com: 97-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ Coverking Neoprene Custom Fit Seat Covers FRONT & REAR: Automotive
Now I have to decide which ones I want. I had found some on eBay and contacted the seller and he sent me a sample. I really liked the feel of it, but it was around $500 to do all the seats. I'm going to do it sometime this summer

Any thoughts on cheap bumper accessories? I was thinking about somehow using garden solar lights and some old kc to make something.

Closer shot of just the door.
We're your panels originally black? Or did you paint the whole thing?

Nice! I split my 4 channel to power my 10" sub and my 4 speakers. Set up works great I think! Space efficient too

Why do people still buy neoprene!?! They fade fast and retain water. bleh. If you like swamp ass or never take the top and doors off then I guess it would be ok. But if you want good looking covers, great color retention, and Waterproof. check out IGGEE customs Simulated leather seats on ebay ($270 for full set). I got mine 6 months ago and almost never have the top on, I keep a chamois under the driver seat and if the seats are wet I wipe them down. This pic was taken about a week ago and there is no sign of fading, they still look like the day I installed them.


Edit: This is my DD. I have 2 kids that ride in it every day, and NEVER have the top on unless its a hurricane coming lol. So yea they get used and abused.

PS: I live in South Florida and the sun is brutal. end rant.

Check the hi-lift cover to see what 4 months in the SFL sun does to neoprene lol. BTW that was black to start with.


As for the seats. They feel like vinyl. And I can hop into the Jeep anytime I want even if its been sitting in the sun for hours. Nothing like the leather I had in my Cadillacs. I had to have a towel to sit on in that car but these are perfect.

Personally if I ever need new seat covers or even want seat covers I'm gonna order a set from Infernogirl, After seeing her work in pictures on here it looks like way better quality than the main stream manufacturers

Actually that settles it for me then. That is the seat covers I was actually looking at on eBay already, I just thought they were more. Maybe it was more for the custom color I was looking at (red and black for all 4 seats)

I think I'm going to cancel the neo order, I've been waiting on then for a month and it seems like they suck so I think I'll look for something better.

Ahh... yeah, technically it is "on" lol. but if you worked outside, in the South Florida sun, on white Yachts, in the Intercoastal waterway all day like I do, then you would want as much time out of the sun as possible. Noone wants to look like a dried leather strap by the age of 40 lol.
