Iggee seat covers

I got some iggee seat cover for Christmas that just came in. I've heard they can be a pain butt to put on. Does anyone have any tips or helpful info to make it easier before I get started on installing them? Or is what I have heard false and they are a breeze to out on.

I had them for awhile and don't recall any issues installing them other, than being short a few of the "S" clips that hold the elastic straps under the seat bottom.

No problems. I just put mine on a couple of months ago. I don't know where you live but I would lay them out for a while, preferably somewhere warm to let them relax from being in the box.
Honestly, I did not know how to tightly secure the back seat bottom. I ended up pulling it very tight and poking the 's' hooks into the fabric seat bottom. I know it's not the right way but that's how I got them tight.
If you have a full center console it gets snug working around that side of the seats.
My only concern originally was the fact that the front seat backs are concave. When the seat cover is installed over that concave back there was a void between the seat and the cover due to the cover being tight.
Over time now the seat cover has relaxed and fits better into that "concaveness".
Good luck, keep us updated.

Took me like 30 minutes no instructions. Pretty much common sense

Look for someone on here who just purchased them. When mine came in there was a discount coupon for 10%. That's a $30 savings.
I put mine in the "give/take" thread in 'off-topic'. Search or ask there, or maybe even the OP here.

I'm going to end up getting a set of these, but I did have some questions if anyone who has them knows. I am assuming you can still fold up the back seat while the covers are still on, and if so is back seat still protected from rain? I have a feeling since its the back bottom of the seat facing up that the covers don't protect them when folded.

Okay so I got the seat covers on. I just don't know what to do about the elastic strings towards the back. It looks like they should be pulled and tied somewhere but I can't figure it out.

I just found the clips that came in the box but I'm still confused on what to do with the elastic bands

They look great. It was a real pain in the a$$ to hook the elastic underneath but I got it done. I ended up pinching the hooks shut so I they don't come loose or undone. Over all I'm really happy so far, they feel great and seem like great quality.

Now I'm just not sure what these are for... They look like they wrap around something but I'm not sure.

Never installed a set of these seat covers but they might be seat belt covers?

Dang I never got the seat belt pads with mine a couple months ago I was short big time on the clips too, they only sent 6! They were great in mailing more and I have about 600 now, lol...

I love the covers so far and have had a few people comment that they didn't know Jeeps came with leather, lol...

I almost ruined them with some PL Premium a week before Christmas or so. I was working in the garage and got some on my coat and didn't see it. I made a heck of a mess as I was installing speakers in the Jeep and got it on all the seats I almost cried as they were less than a month old! Scrubed 'em good and cleaned with 303 and they look just like new again though!

Just a quick question. Could anyone tell me or post a picture of the back of a rear seat cover for a JKU? I was just wondering if it is a fully cover or not. I'm planning on ordering a set soon before my jeep comes in.
Thanks
