Wet okole seat covers

Ok i got a question I bought a set of Wet okole seat covers on craigslist but they said they came out of a 02 wrangler and when I tried to put them on my 05 TJ they didnt really match up good like the tumble handle and all so is there a difference between 02 TJ front seats and 05 TJ front seats

Yep. They changed the design of the seats in '03.

03 seat backs are a lot taller than 97-02 seats. No way they will fit.

Also the seat 97-02, 03-06 seat backs are different shapes. It won't fit well. Just resell the covers. Wet Okole covers are not that great. They soak up moisture and fade really badly in the sun.

They won't fit. Do as Neil suggests and sell them for more than you paid and buy something that fits...

Yes early TJs had a round tear drop like head rests ahd in 03-06 went to taller square head rests.


Also I would never again buy any neoprene seat covers....they soak up moisture, retain heat and in the summer they give you swamp ass!
