I just ordered mine from the ebay store over the phone Tuesday and I think they may have screwed my order up. I ordered them for an 04 but the receipt that was sent to my email stated that they were for an 08. I called to correct but no one there spoke English so Ill probably have to send them back and wait even longer. Anyway make sure if you order these from the Ebay store that you verify before getting off the phone (if you call) that your order was placed right.
Mine dont have any stains or rips they just have a funky musty smell that I would like to get rid of. I thought I read a thread on here where someone took the factory material off washed them and put them back on

I picked up a set of smittybilt seat covers last summer for my 88 YJ and Im liking them (about 150 for front and back seats if I remember right). They take waterrain and make the inside of the truck look WAY better. Ive always liked my seats (Ive had the thing for 21 years...) and didnt want to replace them.
spice sidesback and green inserts (cloth) If so those are factory Sahara seats.
Spice sides green in the middle and a band across the back of the seat back. Thanks for the help It definitely wasnt a Sahara though. Gray fender flares. I would have asked the guy but I figured running lights wasnt justified.
Are those covers I think the ones I saw were a little different. I think the side bolsters on the seat were tan and the green was where your butt and thighs were. Im going to wait awhile longer before I swap out my seats but thanks for the offers. Looks like there are 2 fronts and a back seat available.

If they had some tan on the top they could have been seats out of a YJ model Sahara
I feel your pain. I too suffer from back pain. Sometimes from my wife. Seriously I have spinal stenosis in my neck and lower back. I went with Bestops Trail Pro seats the are stiff but support the back very well. Give you an idea I am 511 at 240lbs and I have found these seats more comfortable than my other newer vehicles do to the hole back is supported not just the lumbar seems to distribute back

29.5 inches high seat back theres a time limited sale on some covers so i have to head out right now..plse email me at tvoth2 rci.rogers.com (no space of course..bot beating) if you can and know the answer. thanks.
I am looking into seat covers as well however best top does not have the back seat in spice only in black. I will call them to check this is strange. Anyone here has bought front and back seat covers in spice color
Yep really strange I checked both Quadratec.com and Besttop.com and they only show the back seat cover in black. I believe they must offer it in spice color since they have that option for the front seat. Ill call them.
I vote for get rid of the back seat if its always folded down strip that carpet and line it with some sort truck bed liner. Its sooo nice I love it in my TJ
I am considering doing just that but am not sure what to do about some of the wiring I see under the carpets. I did do bedliner in the interior of my Land Rover Defender 90 and that was a great choice (but there was no wiring or carpet to get rid of in that vehicle). But we do want to occasionally use the rear seats and I dont want to hassle with pulling them out and putting them back allthe time.
There is no wiring to speak of in the rear under the carpets. I have my Unlimited Linexed.. its the best. Great choice for pooches back there. See my post httpwww.jeepforum.comforumshowt...ighlightlinex Im looking to invest in a back seat hammock for my little buddy. You could also look into getting two of those back seat dog hammocks - 1 for the cargo area and one for the back seat They go in and
I got some Iggee seat cover they are Synthetic leather not bad they just get a little hot in the sun. So far I have had them on for a little over a year and they have done their job well. I paid around 230.00 if I recall for all three seats. If you do a search for Iggee you should be able to find some more infoa and photos and yes they do have a good size pocket in the back of the two front seats
Do the neoprene tend to make your back sweaty
Quote Originally Posted by jgrindle13 Do the neoprene tend to make your back sweaty Its a lot more comfortable than the vinyl fabric found on my stock seats. I used to have to peel myself out of them. Now its not so bad.
i found a set of black and red ones on ebay neoprene front and back seats 165 nice
I went with seats from a 96 Pontiac Sunfire. Much more comfortable and bolted right in. Only set me back 35 or so for the pair.
You might try walking around a salvage yard and looking at the front seats from some of the smaller cars and see how hard it would be to mount them to your floor then you could just get some seat covers or something so they dont look too tacky. My buddys dad did this type of think with their Triumph TR6 he thought the drivers seat was uncomfortable so he found that he could make a seat from I think it was a first or second generation eclipse fit in there without to much trouble.
I have a set of seat covers I picked up from walmart they have pouches and a caribenor loop built in the back and they kind of lace up the sides for a tight fit. There some what water resistant too which is a bonus.

The downside is expensive For that price you can buy new seats online. There are a bunch of sites out there. But I do like all the options they give you on the Hawaii site. I bought some neoprene covers
Quote Originally Posted by jfondren3 Thanks I had never heard of Iggees before but I do believe that I will go with them. I noticed that we have the same color jeep so what color seat cover did you go with I am thinking about black and gray because I dont know how close the blue would be to color matching. Do you know if its close to the same color as our jeeps Thanks for all the help and comments

Any suggestions appreciated I literally had to pull mine
by 20181c I have searched threads google and I guess there are no solutions to making the stock JK buckets more comfortable or at least I couldnt find any. Besides the hight adjusters not holding these things are bad on a long trip. Has anyone gone to an upolstry shop and had the seat re-stuffed I know Mastercraft makes great seats but are they comfortable for long trips I will always have a jeep

Give me good ol Pennsylvania coal dust mud anyday I just came back from a jeep Jam down south and that red mud was all over my jeep. It didnt help that it rained the night before and I ran doorless and topless
would swear they were factory seats without covers on them at all. in response to the waterproof issue i think the material itself is waterproof but the covers consist of 6 pieces ( dr side seat back pass side seat back dr side seat bottom pass side seat bottom rear seat back rear seat bottom) and these pieces are not connected together so in theory if you got a ton of rain with no roof on the jeep
Can someone who has fixed back seats like these tell me how the access to the back seat is Do you have to first slide the seat forward then use that handle extension to tilt it If thats correct is it enough room to get back there The drivers seat in my 99 has seen better days so I was considering ordering some covers. For 200 for a pair of seats its hard to justify ordering covers. (I have tan interior) Im only hesitant because my kids are in the back seat of the jeep several times a week and I dont want it to turn into a problem getting them in and out.
Okole seat covers for over 10 years on my YJ and they are waterproof for all practical purposes. If water gets through them it is at a seam or seat belt hole not the material itself. That does not mean you will not get a wet butt after a rain They are waterproof in the sense that water does not go through them but they will get wet and absorb some moisture on the surface. When I lived in PA my jeep
ordeal the OEM leather covers actually have heaters built into the foam backing of the covers and not the foam basis ... therefore the aftermarket heating elements I installed on the base cushions have to penetrate the thick leather covers. Would obviously work a lot betterfaster under thinner covers but seem to heat up on high setting just fine after a few minutes. Quote Originally Posted by jeepnBlake

I got the red and black ones my jeep is red and I have changed the Rubicon decal to black and took the wrangler
by dualtjs Looks great. How about a write up including modifications required to get them to fit I purchased a complete interior from a 2008 Rubicon that was salvage. It had 9k miles. The seats are grey I cant use the console or the seatbelts that came with it. I wont be using the back seat it was a 4 door rubi and without extensive modification it wont fit. I really dont run a rear seat in my jeep
I have had the jeep seat covers (I thing they are the neoprene) on my 2002 TJ for the whole time that I have owned it. I took them off yesterday (because I am trading the TJ in on my new JK this week) and the seats look absolutely brand new. I did have a smell issue after getting them wet and then putting the top back on before the had dried.... but the smell went away after I took the top back off
downpour. After drying out the interior I removed seat and back cover on drivers side to see what kind of damage I had. Answer - Bone dry save the back sides where the seat cover meets the seatback pivot. And that was not soaked.... just damp from some drips. I did have them made WITHOUT the hole for the seatback strap (that pulls the seat forward). I dont know what the fitment is like on newer wranglers
Posted by Zew I have the black denim covers by bestop. I love them. Theyre waterproof and super easy to put on and they stay in place pretty well. Totally worth the money if you ask me. I got them because i changed my interior color from grey to black and new or used seats are too much money. I got them to cover up the ugly orangebrown pleather apex seats (theyre not that bad but not in a black jeep
I agree with the above if you want to restore your jeep. I have no interest in restoring my jeep I just wanted it to be better. My Cavalier seats are better than the stock seats (more comfortable more sideneck support recline) and they cost 35 from the JY on half price day. My rear seat matches well enough as I found gray Cav seats. I have cheap seatcovers from Wal-Mart on all three just because I
