I spent the money on trek armor and couldn't be happier. Very durable and they don't hold boxer dog hair like the factory fabric. They fit nice and snug too.

and thermos, well they speak for themselves on the first crash to the floorboard

Another vote for trek armor. My three sons pound the snot out of them and spill pretty much everything they possibly can onto the covers and the quadratec deep dish floor mats.

Also have some of their para cord handles and a shade top.

They fit very good, stay in place and don't need adjusting.

I use carabineers hooked on the back of the seat to hang grocery bags and it's never drooped or loosened. It keeps wine and canned goods from rolling around when you hang the bags from the handles.

The Trek Armor are very nice, but I went with Smitty Bilt because it was buy the front set and get the rear set free. I have have them for over a year and could not be happier with them. I don't have to worry about setting a towel on the set while at the beach and with two dogs the hair and dirt brushes right off.

That's clever.
I usually just pile the bags in the footwells and hope for the best. Not any more!

TrekArmor...
Those vids sum them up.
My top came off sometime last Spring, been off ever since, runnin' a Mopar bikini. Seatcovers look new.

I have run Smittybilt neoprene, Iggee faux leather and now Trek Armor

The TA's are the best, hands down. Great fit, durable, super comfortable,
and the absolute least butt sweat out of them all.

I found it's an exceptionally good way to bring home the groceries with no doors on. A bag of doritos and hamburger buns won't blow out.
IIRC the west Texas/eastern New Mexico cross winds may just rip the bags off the biners if they're light.

Bartact or TrekArmor the way to go! Great customer service, made in the USA. Mil-spec quality! I believe there's and upcoming Jeep Beach 2015 special coming up! Call and ask for Sal or Mitch!

re: seat covers

here's the CKs I got installed in about an hour and 1/2 today ( had to remove middle seatbelt on rear bench from floor mount took the extra half hour ) so approximately 15 min per seat. El cheapo's until I can get the PRPs I want. I am lining her this summer so I can never worry about rain again and now my seats are able to take kids spilling stuff and mud with no long term damage or mildew smell....i think they look pretty good and are fair for the money.....

No doubt about the quality and fit of the trek armor. Neoprene covers are also a good option.

guess im on the cheapo side of the seat cover spectrum. just a plain jane set of Duck Commander seat covers from the bargain bin at Cabelas. think I paid less than $20 for both. they do their job...cover the seat, keep most of the mud and crud off, fit well enough for a universal cover. just hit it with the water hose when the interior gets dirty.

Don't really have a great picture but the sides are starting to fade slightly after a little over a year. just a random picture from yesterday where I was cleaning from Saturdays ride. you can see some of the fade, but for basically a $10 seat cover im not complaining

Haven't had them on a jeep in a while, but my Iggees were awesome. They fit really well, too.

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.
