Cover"king" seat covers review

I originally ordered seat covers for my 2005 Tj in red/black...
When the covers arrived I notice the red was actually a very dark almost wine red, definitely not like the picture online or on 4wheelparts website!!

As for fitment, even worse. The covers fit the seat width wise, but as for depth it was very puffy, each time you move you have to squish down the seat cover a ton before you even touch the actual seat.
Around each mechanical device (seat lever or seat belt) the precut hole are huge and very loose.. poor design

For anyone wanting to buy these covers, think twice about the brand, and do NOT go by what any picture shows you haha

I would have gotten some pictures but it was hard to show you puffyness of the covers, needless to say I boxed them up so fast I didn't have to much time to take many pictures at all

Happy Jeeping !!

that's too bad about the fitment; sounds like the color would be a match for those of us rocking sienna pearl rigs. Unfortunately Dirty Mudder hasn't been able to replicate the sienna pearl yet and I'm going for a matching red(sienna)/black color scheme

Good Luck! I think I am going to just save up for some suspension seat..
any good advice on those? I have tried Smittybuilt but they hit the stock rollbar on the sides with a poor fit as well as well as not being centered..

I'm sorry to hear your seat covers weren't what you were looking for. I ordered covers for the front seats and the bench seat in the back and I have loved them ever since I put them on. I had Wet Okole covers on the front from the PO and while they were fine for their purpose, I didn't like the look and I didn't have a matching cover for the back seat. Only problem I had with mine was I received a grey color for my first order rather than the blue (although I'm not sure if that's their fault or whoever I put the order through). They sent me two new covers as well as an extra for my back seat which I will use if anything happens to the back. In the instructions they say to put them on tight for two weeks or so and after some usage to retighten them again for the best fit as the neoprene will have stretched a bit. Maybe that will help?

Gee, you should have said something sooner. I ordered the Smittybilt neoprene covers from 4wd.com since they were on sale. They've been back ordered for a month, so maybe I can cancel. I will see what's what and send a PM.
