Seat Covers.....Thoughts?

Looking for new covers for the seats. Pretty much decided on the neoprene ones and I know there are those who love em and those who hate em, and I'm going with the love here.

Anyways, these things aren't cheap. Been shopping around and want to know if you guys who have and like the neoprenes, have a brand preference or know which ones to steer clear of.

I really like the Wet Okole's (translates to Wet Butt) and would be looking at about $400 after military service discount, about $480 without the discount.

Anyone ever buy the ones from Must Motoring off ebay? Or the coverkings? They would be half the price, but would rather pay and be happy than cheap and pissed.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all my square eyed brethren and sisters.

So probably around $300 for front and back on the coverkings.

Checked out the Bestop ones, but the vinyl turns me off. Running around with the bikini top on, the front seats stay nice and comfortable but the rear seat gets hotter'n hell and Copley, my black lab, is miserable burning his paws and stuff. And, the neoprene ones just seem to look better.

So, if something like the coverkings is gonna run 300, seat glovers look to be around 350, are the Wet Okoles at 480 worth the bux? Are they that much better or save the money and get a cheaper set?

I got the smittybilt ones, and I don't like them. The front one's faded and the stitching on my side started pulling out within a couple weeks.

Heard that about the Smittybilts. I don't know about the fading issues on the Wet O's. I ordered some swatches to leave in the sun and see what they'll do first.
