Update: just got my Smittybuilt. (Quadratech is fast!). Just an FYI: the black & red is more like black & maroon. More of a dark red with a hint of purple. I was expecting more of a "primary" red- you know- red red. Fire engine red. Aftermarket part red. If you have a red Jeep they most likely won't match your paint. (Mine is silver). Sorry- flashing my chick card.
BUT the fit is good and they look good. There is slot on the side for the side air bag - which I don't have. I wish they mentioned that or offered it without. But for $169 for front and rear I am still happy.

|JeepHerz||For cheapies: the Smittybuilt Neoprene are "buy the front get the rear free" on Quadratech & 4 Wheel online right now. $169 for both. I don't need waterproof- I need dog proof. (aka washable). I don't think the Smittybuilt are waterproof- but the Wet Okoles are.|

|JKatfish||I have the Trek Armor, relative unknown on this forum. Couldn't be happier. They are water resistent and have good storage pockets as well as Molle straps on the back, and on the sides of the top and bottom, so its reallyvery versatile too as well as looking good. Made in SoCal and workmanship is excellent. If interested email Mitch in contact. Neoprene was not for me...|

I put on a set of AEV seat covers. They aren't *pretty* - rather utilitarian, but they are so well made (typical AEV) fit well, and the water just beads up. I just rolled into Moab yesterday after about 9 days of camping/working in the back-country (lots of dirt...) and they amazed me how well they just look like new after a quick brush, and damp towel over the seats where my dog jumps in... they are a bit pricey, but built to last, look good, and protect the original seats. Gotta say, I love mine. If you are interested, call Paul:

|daggo66||I have the IGGEE's and am very happy with them so far. My only concern is if they are going to be hot when the sun beats down on them. If they are I am going to add the Jeep towel covers.|

I hear exactly what you are saying. Being a boater and a beach guy, I needed the same solution. The stock seats as tough as they are will and do stain, making the Jeep look trashy. I bought Wet Okoles. They are 100% waterproof and fully washable. They are pretty pricey and made in Hawaii, but thoroughly waterproof neoprene. I got mine in yellow and black with a dolphin insignia on each seat. (My Wrangler is detonator yellow) I bought the full set for front and back. Here is a link....

You can also get heated ones for the winter.

Regarding fading, there is a anti fade treatment spray that works well, that UV treats them against fading. Never had a fade issue, since I place my freedom tops back on when I stop driving for security reasons. Wet Okole sells the UV spray on their site for about $10. Interesting too, I never sweated using them. Of course your mileage may vary. Everyone is different.
The Quadratec link lets you see what different colors would look like in your color vehicle.
Watch out for shipping with Quadratec. It cost me $57 to Long Island NY. Kbwwolf is correct regarding the shipping, although for my future orders I found it easier to using Google Shopping, because it took me too long to get Joe to respond. He must be really busy with requests.

I've got the Coverking seat covers, but mine are a breathable spacer mesh...didn't want the swamp ass, as it's called.
IGEES are very popular with some folks. Here's a link to them, and some other brands:
Car Cover, Seat Covers, Dash Cover, Floormats, Sunshields - Manufactured by Coverking
Car Seat Covers | Seat Covers | Custom Seat Covers | Truck Seat Covers | Automotive Seat Covers
These are the ones I'm gonna go to next, if/when my Coverkings go down for a dirt nap:

Beach season is almost here and I just got my new jeep. (whoo!) Looking at some seat covers because I know the abuse that this vehicle is going to endure.
I need something waterproof... Something that will cover the entire seat. I've been scouring and have found a few things on my own... But figured this would be a great forum to post to...
What does everyone else have? Any experience with the neoprene?
Any advice or links will be totally appreciated
