Seat Covers

When I bought my jeep last February, the salesman told me the previous owner put some mis-matched seats in it before trading it in. The jeep is dark blue.....the front seats are blue and the back seat is FRIGGIN ORANGE!!!! The seat covers the salesman purchased were cheap neoprene. The top of the back seat cover has almost faded white.
I'm looking at bestop vinyl seat covers on quadratec for around $112.00 each, front and back.
Anyone else have these and can you provide me with a review?
Thanks.

Buy you some marathon super hides, They fit like a glove and are tough as nails, Plus I am a rep for them and I can save you some green.

Oh, Bestop Seat covers are great.
But you might appreciate a review from other people more.

Web site says they're $175 a pair for the front buckets and the bench would be the same.
The bestop brand I'm looking at on quadratec says $112.00 and I thought that was for a pair, but I think that's just for one seat.
Marathon is starting to sound a little better if they're as good as you say. Can I get free shipping?

Have you tried contacting any salvage yards that deal in totals and stolen recovery vehicles? We have one locally and you can find all kinds of good parts for a very reasonable price. I seen a Sahara that had been totaled. It still had the back seat in for some reason. It was green and tan, it was in perfect condition and just sitting exposed to the weather.

Thumbs up

I bought the Bestop's back in May, and couldn't be happier.
They're very thick/durable, and just about as water-proof as you're gonna get.
They also provide a bit more firmness to your seat.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
And yes, the wrinkles from them being folded go away.

Nice vehicle security, Blacktooth. Or do you play tee-ball?

I have had the smittybuilt custom fit neoprene cover for a couple years now and I love them. They haven't faded! I had a new quart of oil on the seat and it leaked. No oil went through I cleaned it with brake clean with no damage. 4wheel parts has them for $150 and the rear cover is free!

It'll be a boring war. Seat covers are all about personal preference. I mean, it's not like a winch or something where you can argue over specs and manufacturing. It's just whatever you like the look and feel of.

Plus, I hardly ever even know what our stuff ends up costing in the retail stores.

BUT I'm pretty certain that the seat covers are sold as a pair.

Did it have a "Have You accepted Tebow as your savior" bumper sticker on the back?

I don't know about any of the other seat covers that have been mentioned on here but I'm going with Wetokoles. They have heated and fit like gloves. They also are expensive but well worth the dough from everyone I've ever talked to that has them. They also do just about any color you want and patterns.

Here's the link. Jeep Seat Covers

I'm not going to say that Tebow sucks because I think he's a great COLLEGE QB....but I'm from the heart of "Sooner Nation" so my bumper sticker actually says "Have You Accepted Sam Bradford as Your Savior?" Go Sooners!!!

Those seat covers look nice and after seeing these pictures you so graciously posted on here, I've decided to go with the Bestop brand.

Geoff, NOW you owe Blacktooth a hat.....he just made a sale for you!!! You can now sit at your desk for at least another week in this troubling economy!!

I am not bribing people with shirts and hats. For one reason, it seems a little desperate. For another, I don't really like you guys that much.

I'm sorry you don't like us that much....I like you and you've been very helpful on my previous posts and posts I've read.
As far as desparation goes, I think that just hearing the company name "Bestop", makes desparation disappear. Bestop is the way to go 99% of the time. Excellent quality!!

No free shipping, but did you apply the discount 175.00 = 148.75

I wont argue fit and finish but I know super hides fit tight and are tough as nails, short of getting in with some sort of tool or razor blade in your back pocket you wont put a hole in these.

They probably are in pairs because I havent seen many seat covers that cost more than marathons. And yes marathons are sold in pairs for the front.
