Seat covers for '14 JK?

First time Wrangler owner after 2 GC's and 2 Libertys and now finally the fifth one is a beautiful Copperhead Pearl Unlimited Sahara. One month later and I can't believe I waited this long! All of my 4x4's see regular surf/sand action fishing along the Delaware coast and this new ride will be on the beach very soon. I am asking for some opinions on front seat covers to protect the factory cloth. I saw some nice ones on Quadratech site at $170 and was curious to know if anyone else has any suggestions. Thanks! Chris

I've had very good luck with IGGEEs-

After 5 years they're still unfazed, but

My jeep isn't a daily driver and I don't take the top off (sun), so if you're on the beach all the time, consider the sun exposure as far as color/finish-

I haven't taken any pics for years, cause the IGGEEs are the same, but here's one from several years ago and no change !





Good luck

I like Trek Armor seat covers. They are extremely durable and the fit is tight like factory. Also they come with lots of storage options (webbing-bag) too. Unfortunately they can’t be used with front seat air bags.

Trek Armor

I have a 2012, went with Trek Armor first but never installed them decided to go with SmityBuilt covers instead, gonna leave the Trek covers in the box and sell them at a loss, maybe some one can use them.

Curious, why the change of mind?

lazy

the reason I switched was the Smitybuilt are easier to remove and clean. there cheeper to replace to, the Trekarmor ones are higher quality and might last longer but I think for me the Smitybuilt were the better choice.

Any thoughts on Wet Okole? I know they are spendy but they have also been in the cover market for years. Those are what I am leaning towards, from a fit and finish perspective they are one of the only ones that I have seen that dont appear wrinkled or baggy.

My choice came down to the Trek Armor or Wet Okolie. I decided on Trek Armor for the webbing (lots of military gear and packs). I've got to say they aren't baggy and their customer service is outstanding.

I'm also looking for seat covers for my '14 JKU...

Is anyone aware of any seat covers that do work with the side airbags?

The Wet Okole are compatible with side airbags. The trek armor are not at this time.

My wet okole's are frayed and worn after less than 2 years.
Look for another American brand.

Out of curiosity did you use their care products? How frequently did you wash them?
