Seat Covers...

How many of you guys have seat covers? What kind do you have and are you happy with them?

I've been looking at these....Coverking/Dashking SPC119L - Coverking Front Seat Covers with Jeep® Logo for 97-02 Jeep Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

Has anyone had these before? Since they're neoprene I suppose in the winter they may freeze my butt to the seat. Not a very comforting thought.

Your reviews are appreciated.

I have those, but with out the Jeep logo. Got them here:

Coverking Neoprene Front Seat Covers w/FREE Rear Cover : JC Whitney: Auto Parts & Accessories


I have been very happy with them. They look nice. They feel much better than the vinyl. Not too hot in the summer, winter has no issue at all. They also added a good amount of extra padding to the seat. Also, I haven't had any problem with them shifting around. They fit tight for the most part except for right in the center back they puff out a good bit but this has settled in a bit. They have slits in the sides for the pull tabs on the seats, which I'm not crazy about... but it's not really noticeable. There are certainly better quality products out there, but it's hard to beat $160 for a full set front and rear. Beware of the colors shown in the pictures. The tan was no where close... it's was almost a light gray. I returned it for the black ones, which are solid black.

I bought a set of the coverking two toned with jeep logo from jc whitney, they had a deal to where you buy the two front and they give you the rear for free, it cost about $150, they look and feel awesome and fit like a scuba suit, however the buckles are cheap and break, but nothing a couple tie wraps can't fix

i just got 2 and it looks like they are made by "elegant"... probably walmart specials or whatever.

anyways, the reason i have not put them on, is the same problem i see w/ all those you guys showed.

no hole for the selt loop

i have teenage kids and the seat get popped forward about 10x day on various trips

so i will need to cut a hole and stitch around it so it doesn't tear

but i like the idea of them... especially since i have the infamaous "tear" in the drivers side vinyl

I bought my jeep w/o a top and it took me about 3 weeks to find a nice cheap top for $130 Of course it rained almost daily till I bought the top, So I know the Husky trick all too well.

I bought the same exact set from JC Whitney and they were MUCH cheaper than Quadratec. They gave me a free matching rear seat cover and free shipping. I love the covers.

I got lucky with the royal blue WET OKOLE when they had a buy 2 fronts and get the rear free deal. They fit really well and I haven't had the swamp butt deal everyone talks about when they get wet. I know it's a little pricey but I'd rather pay now than later.

I like mud and dust seat covers. They have been working well for me.

I bought these 2 seat covers for $20 a piece at Autozone.
I really like the skulls, but the seat covers are very thin and sh*tty!
I should have spent the money on beer instead.

ajtudor,

I just ordered a set like yours from JC Whitney...thanks for the heads up about the color (tan) not matching. I've also heard that comment elsewhere. So I ordered the black ones also.

The only concern about JC Whitney, that I had, was the actual check out price was $20.00 higher than the advertised price. I chatted with a sales rep. and he adjusted by bill appropriately, quickly and professionally. I've learned not to click the buy button to quick...but rather scroll back up and double check everything when buying on-line.

Thanks for everyones input...

Anyone know of seat covers with heaters, there is one out there but only one side heats when it is under 35 and both sides heat when it is over 35. I told the company they were nuts trying to sell a product like that. You need it the most in frigid weather.

Until I switched to seats they wouldn't fit, I ran Bestop's vinyl seat covers for years and really liked them. Now that my seats look like crap from stains etc., I wish the Bestop seat covers would have fit them. Bestop's seat covers are textured so they aren't slick like most other vinyl covers are and they look good and fit well enough that they don't scream "SEATCOVER".

The one material I constantly recommend against is neopreme, especially the overpriced neopreme covers from Wet Okole. Contrary to the hype, neopreme is not water proof if the liquid sits there long enough and once the liquid soaks in, it's there for days until it dries out. And if it's perspiration, then they start to stink. Finally, the colored neopreme seat covers like Wet Okole pushes fade far too quickly and unevenly if they see much sun... even if you use their UV protectant spray.

Now you speak up! Thanks! j/k

Seriously Jerry I, along with numerous others, put alot of stock into your opinions.

But I'm going with neopreme nontheless since I've already ordered 'em. That's my story and I'm stick'in to it!
