Iggee Seat Covers (A review)
 
I took the plunge about a month ago in ordering these seat covers off Iggee through Ebay. $300 included the 2 front seats, and the rear seat. You can find my thread on all the questions about that here.

Aside from the 3-4 week wait, I would say they are a pretty easy company to deal with. Their customer service was pretty spot on, and they told me they weren't shipping till July 5th (got them today, on the 10th.)

I would definitely recommend them, and if you want a nice fit, I would take the seats off. It took me about 20 min. with them on, but if I was at home in the garage, the seats would have come out. That is just my personal opinion. Other than that, they are everything I heard and thought they would be, a little loose at first, but I imagine as they get some heat, they will tighten up a bit.

Also, as soon as I took these pictures right after I put them on, it began to downpour. I don't have any doors or windows on, and they wiped off nicely with a towel about half an hour ago. Way more waterproof than the neoprene covers I had on before.

I am really happy with them, although a little pricy, they seem quality, and durable.

Why did you replace the previous ones?

YHSublime 07-10-2012 10:21 PM

Look at the first picture...

Those look nice! Post a followup in a few days to see if the wrinkles smooth out. :thumb:

As an extra layer of protection you may want to get a can of Scotchgard and spray/wipe them down. That will give you a great barrier against spilled drinks, etc.

I have Iggee covers too, and they are fantastic.

I alos have a set and I LOVE them. They are completely waterproof. I cruse around a lot with no doors and they have been holding up great. Even after baking in the sun most of the day they are still not that hot to sit on. The only thing i don't like about them is that they did not make a slot for the tabs in the backseat that fold them down and they also cover up all the hooks for a car seat.

I've had them for over a month now and the wrinkles did smooth out. The seat covers are very nice and I've had many compliments on them plus they wash off very easy after my 4 year old climbs all over them with his muddy boots on wheeling trips.

YHSublime 07-17-2012 09:28 AM

So far I'm really impressed. Like I said, they have held up in the rain great, and wipe off easy with a towel. My old neoprene ones definitely held water making for a "wet butt" every time it rained. The wrinkles are smoothing out, slowly but surely. I have had no doors and windows now for about 2 months, and usually the top is dropped. We have had a lot of rain here for the past couple weeks, which is the biggest test for me. Donbadabon, I really like the idea of scotchgaurding them. Will this change the color, or put a shine on it at all? How long do they have to dry or sit before I can sit in them?

I have this same exterior and interior jeep, anyone have experience with iggee's match to this beige?

LilYeller 08-21-2012 10:18 PM

To the OP: the only issue I have ever had with my IGGEE is that on the rear seat where the seat meets the back, water sits inbetween there and it gets a bit moldy. A quick wipe with a cloth will remedy that. So take it as a heads up. Other than that I have had them on for 8 months and they look like the day I put them on, no fading or ripping. So far my favorite purchase for my Jeep.

Like I said, they have held up in the rain great...http://www.bsmhealth.com/songam.jpghttp://www.usber.info/d.jpg

whsoccerjc21 08-21-2012 10:56 PM

anyone have a picture of a black jeep with either all black or two tone black and charcoal covers?

distrkt5 08-21-2012 11:30 PM

Anyone with a Steel Blue Jeep have these? What color would be best?

jquinn83 08-22-2012 12:30 AM

My question is, on the back seat does it still allow you to fold the seat forward and if so. do the covers still protect the seat in that position?

LilYeller 08-22-2012 07:08 AM

On my 2000 the lever to fold the seat down is near the bottom of the seat so yes Im still able to fold it down. The top cover goes all the way around the seat but not the bottom cover, so the bottom of your seat is still exposed.

As for the wrinkles I didnt have anything as bad as what you showed in the pics above, maybe just a matter of pulling the covers tighter and getting them velcroed more evenly on the bottom. I also layed my covers out in the sun for about 30 min before I installed them, got them nice and stretched out then pulled them really tight and they have almost no wrinkles.

YHSublime 08-22-2012 01:44 PM

My wrinkles smoothed out. Next time I take the seats out, if ever, I will fasten them a little tighter. Extremely happy with them, they still look great, and all the seats still fold, to answer the questions. Sorry, can't answer questions about the colors.

BlackwolfW87 08-22-2012 05:09 PM

Ok I think this thread has re-affirmed that I need to replace the coverking neoprene covers the PO of my jeep had. They are a whole lot better than the torn up seats underneath, but the color is slipping a little and they don't clean out real well. Oh and they hold water like buggers. Go kayaking, wet backside, sit and the rest of the day its wet.

YHSublime 08-22-2012 07:56 PM

Getting rid of your neoprene seat covers will be the best decision that you've ever made. I gave my old ones away for free on Craigslist. My Iggees have doubled the compliments I get on my Wrangler, and everybody asks where I got my new seats from. And now when I come out after a night of rain, a quick wipe with a towel has them dry in just a matter of seconds. No more having to throw down a towel and STILL get wet butt.

Well said.

dabolt55 08-22-2012 09:45 PM

You said it, Iggees rock.:punk:

rdt9910 09-02-2012 11:40 PM

Anyone have an idea of how close there beige matches the spice interior?

Beachcomber 09-03-2012 06:19 PM

I installed Iggees almost three years ago and they still look like the day installed them. They will hold up great for you.

halo216 09-03-2012 10:17 PM

Anyone have the black and grey two tone ones with pictures?

mrcarcrazy 09-04-2012 10:26 AM

My Iggees didn't last as long as I'd have hoped. THe Drivers seat has "broken" for lack of better word. If you're used to Vinyl you'll get my meaning...like a tear, but its just through vinyl and not through the backing mesh.

Imped 09-04-2012 10:38 AM

Very nice, high quality seat covers but I just couldn't get used to how slick they were. I prefer being planted against some fabric than sliding on some leather.

phillip24fan 09-08-2012 11:15 PM

For those of you asking for pictures... (these are not my Jeep by the way)

If you go to the Iggees site HERE you can scroll down and see pictures of several color options.

Is that a hurst/B&M billet shifter I see, if so how do you like it?

YHSublime 09-11-2012 09:43 PM

Black98, good eye. It's the Hurst, and it was installed by the PO. I love it, but I don't have much to compare it with!

TJTim316 08-06-2013 10:17 AM

What material did you guys go with there are quite a few options to choose from
