I am thinking about putting them on my YJ seats in my CJ. Do they look and funtion as good as advertised? The seats I have are sound but need new covering and thought the neuprene would be a good choice. I do not want second rate looking seats in my project. Any advise? Thanks Stumper
I've never had the covers, but I bought some of the neoprene bestop "aquamax" seats. Like CJunk said, the faded REALLY fast and after a while the seams started to look like they were pulling apart. I, personally, won't buy any more neoprene stuff.
I had a set of seat covers made by wet okole and they was royally bad ***! THey ened up going my my brother F250 work truck and he still beats them to death out on mine strips. They are still holding strong... Only bad part about them is they cost a little more than normal seat covers.
One thing you need to remember, a FULL Neoprene seat cover WILL be waterproof...
Wetsuits are not 100% neoprene, I was big time into deep diving and psearfishing in FL for years. Gots lot of experience with them. If a wetsuit was 100% neoprene you would not be able to sink with it on, that completely repel water.
Those Wet Okole seat covers are 100% neoprene, they will never absorb water. And will never stain either, all it take to clean them if to pop them off and go at it wil a water hose if your that worried about it. Most people I know with them never wash them though...
I purchased Neoprene covers for my TJ. I wanted something waterproof for when I was wheeling... don't like sitting on wet muddy seats, they made cleanup a lot easier. If anything was going to fade, I wanted it to be the seat covers, not the seats. Mine lasted three summers in the dry California sun, and I had the top off from march til november for the most part. They were still on the TJ when I sold it... not bad for $100 in my opinion. They still had life in them, they were faded, and there was a spot that was wearing, but they did their job. I will probably put them on my CJ once I get it together.
