Coverking - Just Installed

I ordered a set of Coverkings after much debate with the wife over a set of Iggee simulated leather seat covers.

They came in today, roughly a month after I ordered them... and I have to say, they were definitely worth the wait!

These are some very high quality, well made seat covers! They fit the JK seats like a glove and I was even able to source a few cuts and blood during the install. I am calling this one a success! Ha ha!

They added at least a quarter inch of cushion to the seats and the fit and form is just awesome. They installed without instructions in about an hour, and in the dark.

If you're in the market for seat covers I highly recommend these covers. Let me know if you want to try a set out in your ride! I've got the hook up, holler if you hear me.

I will post some pictures tomorrow when the good wife returns in her trusty steed.

My apologies if these pictures aren't professional quality, I was in a hurry:





Look at how snug they fit the seat:



Our JKU has the airbag seats so I opted for these. They flop around a bit but I used a piece of 3M auto trim double sided tape and it's good to go. That stuff is magical.



Rear of front seat:

Excellent fit and finish...awesome!

What is the texture of the covers? I hated my neoprene covers during the summer...I'd imagine leather would be the same. Do these 'breathe' at all?

These are neoprene covers. From the time that I pulled them out of the packing earlier to tonight they have remained cool to the touch. Not room temperature, literally cool. Kinda weird.

I'll know more after this weekend. I'm going on a beach fishing trip and plan to run around half nude all weekend. Full report sometime soon!

I've got 'em too, and echo everything you said. They are superior in every way to the Wet Okoles I tried the first time around. Much better covers, and a lower price to boot.

I'm actually going to Port Aransas this weekend. My mother in law has a bar down there and they are having an up and coming country singer play there. John Wolfe I think...my brother in law put it together so I'm going to show my support....and fish. LOL

I'll be down at Crystal Beach sometime this summer, my folks have a place down there. I will let you know when!

How is the UV protection? I originally wanted Wet Oaklee but heard they fade bad.

What he said

I ordered these from Marcus and they are awesome!!!!! Of course, like him, it took a while for Coverking to get their shit together and actually send them...but they are so worth the wait! The seats are far more comfortable than they were stock. There is lots of padding and the neoprene seems to be less slippery then the stock seats.
Thanks again for everything Marcus!!

If anyone is planning on getting these...get them thru River City Offroad!!!!

Hey Mike!

I am unsure of the exact UV rating, but these are made out of CR-Grade Neoprene. I would expect anything to fade if left in the sun long enough, but these things are very rich in color. I think it'll take a lot for them to fade out.

Thank you Dawn! I hated the wait that you were forced to endure but I enjoyed our conversations about window lickers and incompetence! LOL!

Thank you so much for your support!

I don't want to turn this into a sale ad, but I'm going to do these art $275 for the set of front and rears delivered for you guys. I"ll make a formal post next week.

The 2 door and 4 door versions are the same cost.

Glad to hear everyone who has these is happy with them. I'm very confident in this product and very impressed!

Those look good man. I've got Wet Okole's on my "to get list" but hell, those look just as good from the pics (and for a lot less centavos!).....

Keep us informed on how they do!

Marcus,

Interested on how you feel they are after the weekend of driving/sitting in them. Worried about the neoprene and the Texas heat but I suspect its probably no worse that the cloth seats.

Added to the list
