So I'm looking to purchase some neoprene seat covers so that when I unwrap the Jeep come spring, it'll look impressive.
i cant spend much (of course) so the two options i saw are these:
the Coverking Custom Fit Neoprene Seat Covers, for $129 front two seats and $119 back seat.
and the Wet Okole Universal Seat Covers for $119 for front pair, and $119 for back.
im leaning towards the Coverking because they say 'custom fit' and i would like a cleaner look. Ive heard great things about Wet Okole, but i cant afford the custom fit ones, and i havent heard much about the universal covers.
so has anyone had any experience with the Coverking Custom Fitted ones?
I purchased the coverking seat covers from JC Whitney about six months ago, they had a deal, buy the front two and get the back for free, I think it was right aroung $150 with shipping. I love them, they are very comfortable however the buckles are cheap and break. honestly i don't know why they came with buckles because they fit very snug. A couple of tie wraps fixed the broken buckle syndrom, I think that every neoprene seat cover will give you swamp ass. The coverkings I bought have map pockets in the back as well.
I have the Cover King ones. They are well made and comfortable. Paid $150 or so shipped for the full set. I plan to run them for a year or so and then replace them with the same thing when they look crappy or rip.
Be aware of the drawbacks of using neopreme for seat cover.
First, neopreme is not waterproof... I don't care what the ads say... if the water sits on it, the neopreme will soak it up like a sponge and then take days to dry out. It soaks up perpiration just as well but that will eventually just leave an odor when it does finally dry out after a few times.
Then, the less expensive neopremes are thinner so they wrinkle and look bad after a while. And if you get a colored neopreme cover and it sees much sun, the colors in the nylon covering will quickly fade unevenly. Black turns to purple, red turns to pink, you get the idea.
They do look good when new... that's about it so far as their positive traits. At least in my personal opinion. Personally, I just went with Bestop's vinyl seat covers. 100% waterproof, they fit like a glove and don't even look like a seat cover. Mine were still in good shape after 6-7 years when I finally took them off to install new seats.

well i found the deal on the coverking everyone was talking about, JcWhitney was actually the last place i looked, ive been on quadratec too much.
i think thats going to be my decision simply because im an incredibly poor student
which color combo would go with a darker green jeep, the red looks awesome but id hate to clash
For what it is worth...I got a set of the coverkings for the front seats...the buckles broke about a week into the campaign...then the fact that the seats underneath stayed dry while I got the "wet a$$"...I second the statements from jtalar and Mr. Bransford!!
IF WE COULDN'T LAUGH..WE WOULD ALL GO INSANE!!!
