    Default Neoprene Seat Covers

    I'm thinking a set of neoprene seat covers before summer time hits but I am wondering how well they hold up in the extreme heat. I don't want to spend $150 bucks if they are just going to fade and fall apart like my el cheapos do when it hits 110+ for 5 months. Any one have experience with them in high temp areas?

    not in high temps. I have wets and they have held great in rain, cold, snow, sun (little fading). Typical upstate NY weather.

    i got some and i had them in texas with over 100 plus temps and they held up great. now up here in kentucky they got the cold and are doing just fine.

    the only thing i didnt like about them in the heat is that when you sweat it dont go anywhere and when u get out of the jeep your back and butt is all wet

    hope this helps

    Can't say about the temps but the reason I didn't go neoprene is that I wear jeans I have seen the way it rubs the neoprene and doesn't last as long as I would like for the money. Check with one or our sponsors, www.marathonseatcovers.com they have some really interesting stuff. When I called and ordered mine they were really knowledgable about their stuff too.

    I have Rugged Ridge in my wifes TJ, so far they have held up great, good fit, easy to install, etc. I have the Smittybilt ones in my TJ and I am not happy. Much harder to install, do not fit as well, stitching is already coming apart, etc. I have had both sets for about a year now. I did find that I sweated more while driving in the summer than with just the cloth of the factory seat covers, but they have not faded that I have noticed.

    I'm not too much worried about the sweat. When it pops 110 and stays there you'll be sweatin no matter what you're sitting on. I normally buy some wally world speacials and they last one year, but it's better than leaving ass skin on my seats. I'll definitely be looking at Marathon when I get ready to buy, I figured I should at least try to support those that support us.

    There is a good list of seats that will fit a YJ on JF. Lists both direct bolt in and seats that require some mod.
