Any Good Seat Covers?

I recently bought a 1996 Cherokee Sport XJ and some of the seat vinyl is tearing in the front and back seats. I was wondering what aftermarket seat covers you use (for the two front seats and long back seat) that work well. Nothing too expensive, maybe $100 total.

Thank you in advance.


Its a Jeep Thing.

Anyone have expierience with replacing the seat foam? Either buying it and doing it yourself, or having a shop do it. My mj driver bucket needs it badly, and i want the cheapest option possible.

Why do any of that when you can install zj/wj seats? they are $10 each at my yard.

no .. there really are not any good seat covers ... errrrrrr

rugged ridge seat covers are pretty good and they kinda fit the xj ... However they make some bolt in seats for the Xj that are pretty nice and not a bad price, a really good option. I have been looking at seats a lot, and their are some sweet seats but none are bolt in but theirs ... and for the price i think their a good bet.

I'm 6,2 and the extra half inch it adds didn't bother me.

Sure ill post pics but it wont be for at least a couple weeks. Got too many other projects lol. And as for the 97+ dash, that will defiantly not be happening. I already replaced the dash with a gray one, and thats not coming out haha

I've noticed this alot. You do know the difference between "defiantly" and "definitely", right?
