trainsktg I have the Bestop covers, front and back. A tad loose/wrinkly compared to the OEM look but they do fit decently and are quite well made.

coley Just my opinion. I don't care for the look…. too loose, but they keep my seats protected. I'll be able to send a pic later today if you want.

They look crappy? I have not put mine on yet I have seen pics of seat covers where they look like factory seats. Is there no way to make them look good? My factory seats are sun damaged pretty bad so I was hoping covers would suffice until I have them reupholstered. I'm going to dye my seats black just to see how they look but I worry if I'm wearing a white t-shirt on a hot day they will bleed a bit. Anyone used duplicolor vinyl and fabric spray?

Serge A. Storms I ordered Coverking covers for mine from Quadratec a couple weeks ago. They were on sale but on back order of course. I have had good luck with them on previous vehicles so I am looking forward to getting them. Black and tan neoprene, they threw the rear seat in for free.

vanillathrilla I bought my TJ with neoprene seat covers and I was miserable driving with them. Swamp butt and back sweat galore! I removed them, and unfortunately my seats seem to get worse every time I climb in (cracks in the vinyl and seams ripping where the upholstery is stitched together), so I'm looking for a solution that doesn't involve putting seat covers back on. I've been looking at getting new suspension seats or at least better shape OEM seats.

One good way to keep them dry if you run without doors and either topless or with a bikini/safari top (or OE top with the windows off during the summer) is flip them forward when you park it. The contractor bags would do the job, too, for keeping them dry. I've used industrial sized garbage bags in the past during rain storms. As for protecting them from the sun, I would think the same methods would help.

I'm not sure if you can use 303 Aerospace protectant on cloth or not, but I'd look into it. The stuff works wonders on everything else.

Protecting your fabric seats

Hello, I have searched the forum and couldn't find anything about protecting your fabric seats from sun damage when the top is off, and i was wondering if there are any products i could buy or what you guys do to protect yours from the sun
