Can't go wrong with the smittybuilts. 4wd has been running a special for awhile now. Buy the fronts and get the rear free. They fit nice and look good.

07 black unlimited. 5.5" rock krawler x factor long arm. Pro comp soft 8s, 37" nitto mud grapplers. Kilby front winch bumper. Warn xd9000i. OrFab rear bumper. Much more to come in the near future.

Don't do Rugged Ridge! They fall apart fast. The second month I had mine on the seem split! You get what you pay for.

I was thinking about covers, then I saw someone running SRT-8 seats and I figured "hell, for a couple extra bucks I can get better seats with electronics!"

Now I'm searching for SRT-8 seats and coming up with squat.

It'd be nice if these things didn't cost so damn much. Makes me want to say screw it and just fuck up the seats in all honesty. I've got some cheapo wal-mart ones for the front that set me back $25 total, which at least protect from the mud if not the water. The rear is going to have to eat it, as I wanted a set to cover it but just not willing to waste hundreds of dollars on a seat cover. I don't understand how fabric can cost so much.......

Coverking = Smittybilt & Rugged Ridge.

I've got Smittybilt covers. The tag on the inside says Coverking. I've had them for almost 3 years. Had to warranty the fronts as soon as I got them for a split seam and broken clip. They've faded pretty bad and the drivers seat is split.

For the cost, I'd probably buy them again. They do fit well and do their job pretty decent.

I love my Wet Okole covers. I didn't buy the back one because the seat will be out when the kids are gone. I really like the piping option and you can buy them directly from the factory.

Thumbs up

The Wet Okole covers are pretty slick! I just want something that'll get the job done, and last. Seat covers are not cheap, and I don't want to waste my money on something that will fall apart after a couple months.

I have had mine for almost a year and no tears or split seams. They are very form fitting and add padding to the seat to make them comfortable. These were about $235 for the pair with a discount and I have no doubt they will last me a long time. I like these better than the covers with a big colored panel in the middle.

the above is most likely irrelevant.

Guess I should expound a little.

The Coverking customs (their code word for the top quality tier) is what I've got. Two years, sun, dog slobber and claws, water, mud, getting in and out....and they look new without a hint of wear, and the fit is outstanding.

Smittybilt and Rugged Ridge covers are Coverking's budget quality tier. They are fine for what they are, but are not of the quality of their custom line.

Wet Okoles....I bought into the hype and bought some when I got my Jeep. I had Coverking customs on my previous ride. When I got the Okoles I was expecting the same quality, and they came up massively short. I couldn't believe I had just paid that kind of money for something of half the quality of the Coverkings. I bitched semi-publicly (on this forum), Coverking got involved and exchanged a set of their customs for my Okoles. The difference is substantial. If you're going to spend the money, go Coverking or Iggies.

Just got my iggees in from Trailduty. The black/graphite looks very well matched to interior. They seem far superior to my Rugged Ridges they are replacing. I'm hoping they stand up to the first impression they gave me.
Also, I let them bake in the sun for awhile and did not feel any hotter than usual on the way home.

So what would your Cover kings and wet oaklee's look like after you did this to them?






after some pressure washing before any soap is even used



IGGEE's they clean up very easy and take abuse

What pattern are these seats? I looked at all the different styles on the coverking website and I can't place them.

Thanks in advance.
