Also, getting some extra S hooks will help tighten the bottom. Some come with it, but I found I needed a few more to snug up the sides/bottom. I then took pliers and closed the S hooks once in place.

Thanks for the input Detroitrodeo! I was leaning towards Iggees, now I just need a way to hide from/convience the wife. By the way what color seat covers did you have? I was thinking black with a grey insert but now Im just thinking all black.

I did all black. I liked the look, really made them look OEM.

Also, any issue yet with heat and sweat with the Iggees covers?

Thanks.
The Iggees I ordered are "black". I ordered them off ebay, $300 delivered.

As we are warming up, i would say they feel like leather, but warm up like vinyl seats.
My wife sweats a bit on them, but they look really good on the Jeep. I wasn't expecting anything much different.

These are my iggees. You can get them in a bunch if different color combos and different material. These are leather and cost about 300$. Defiantly worth it.

Basically I would try and avoid neoprene, because if you get neoprene, you will sweat, and you will get swamp ass. If you can't avoid neoprene, get a lighter color of neoprene. Black neoprene is basically sitting on Satans balls

Thinking about picking up the Iggees, for those who have had them for a while how does the color hold up and have you put any UV protectant on/need to?

Mine hold up fine, but I do have a Safari top on all summer long. Mine are tan and have been on for 5 years. The elastic straps are weaker with age, but the shape of the covers is set so that has not affected the fit.

X2 on the Trek Armor. Easy install and love how heavy they are. Finally something my dog does not destroy.

A couple questions for you Iggee owners. What material are most of you selecting? The synthetic leather? Also, how well do they cover the original seat? The reason I ask is because I have a mismatched rear seat (spice in a grey interior) and it drives me crazy. I'm hoping they cover 100% of the original seat.

I would get a leather cover than neoprene beacuse neoprene will get really hot during summer days.
