Hey Jeepers,

The old foam in my driver's seat is starting to crumble on the left side from me getting in and out and I thought I'd get some seat covers to help preserve the fabric from more wear and tear.

I ordered some Rugged Ridge seat vests that I liked because of all the pockets and storage sewn on the back, but while they claim it fits on a '99 TJ Sahara they most certainly do not. The straps and attachments simply don't work with the way the Sahara seats are built.

Have any of you Sahara owners found a set of decent seat covers that work? I'm looking for some solid recommendations.

Thanks!

We have some rubber/neoprene type seat covers (black around the edges and a tan down the middle) that have fit well for 8 years. Not able to find the brand, they LOOK like the Coverking neoprene seat covers.

I just recently purchased a set of Bestop seat covers for my Sahara seats due to the same issue. My drivers seat had already torn open and the bar had started putting pressure where pressure shouldn't be. Lol. I had some extra foam laying around from a old gun case and stuffed it in the void and put the seat covers on. Im really pleased with the Bestop covers. There are allot of other options such as trek armor, coverking etc. but in my honest opinion for the money, you simply cant beat the Bestop brand they are durable and fit good on the Sahara seats. They are a little loose than what is shown in the advertisements but form to the seat well after a few days.

+2 on TrekArmor -- well worth the $$. I ordered a custom set (tan and green) and they match pretty well with the original color scheme. Unfortunately I don't have any pics I can post right now.

Thanks everyone! Bartact is sending me some fabric samples but I think I'm going to go witth the olive drab/coyote covers they make.
I'm also looking at replacing the foam itself - anyone had any luck finding OEM seat foam or is cutting it myself the only way to do it?

My foam was in pretty good shape, so I paid the upholstery shop about $200 total to remove the weakened foam and replace with new foam to bolster sides and bottoms which take the most abuse. The cool thing is how easy it is to get to the foam with OEM seats. Now they're back to being like new and maybe even more supportive than original. IMO it was money well spent and I didn't have to go through the hassle of replacing seats...yet.
