Re: wet okole seats? worth the $$

Do a search on this topic...I know we've discussed it before a few times. IMHO they're not worth the money, especially if you are going to have the jeep out in the sun with the top off. My bro-in-law's are faded badly (bright yellow center section faded to light dirty yellow, black faded to brown) and they have grease stains in the seat (hey its a jeep we have to wrench on it from time to time). They are maybe two years old. I wasn't impressed.
Just my $.02

Re: wet okole seats? worth the $$

well my bestfriend bought me a pair formy bday on tues....so I cant say long term, but for now they are sweet!!! even makes the seats more comfortable with the extra padding. And here in S. fla seats get real hot, but with the covers I dont get burned anymore coming back from the beach....but then again the money would have gone somewhere else if it were upto me....maybe that would have been last on list list...wait a minute, my list will never end....so who knows!!!

I bought a pair and the sun killed them in less than a year. But I live in central TX. I think the sun shines here everyday. Those seat covers are made for the weather in Hawaii, that is where they originated from.

They work great. I have had just plane black on my Jeep for about a year now, and they are not fading at all. They are really comfortable. Dont forget to wash them and use the UV protectant.

Re: wet okole seats? worth the $$

I have had a set on my Porsh 911seats (the only "hi-performance parts on the CJ) for about 3 years now. I have solid black and like them but I don't think I would spend the cash on them again. They hold in allot dust and dog hair is a pain to get off them.

dog hair, that a minus, especially with my husky and chow riding copilot everyday..lots and lots of hair...here in ny im not worried about fading, but nevertheless, i can use the$$ elsewhere. lots and lots of work to do and the bestop seats on now will do just fine....

I got them...NOT worth it. I'd rather buy racing seats. My Akita hates it too!!

How about there water proof qualities?
Are they realy as water proof as they claim?
Can they get rained on and you will still have a dry seat?

Re: wet okole seats? worth the $$

Shain's bro-in-law here. I would definitely stick to vinyl seat covers. The wet okole seats will definitely hold water, but who really cares. They fade drastically and the outer material pulled away fron the neoprene, giving it e a bubble looking effect. Parts of the "Wet Okole" emblem rubbed off after about 3 months. If you have a show Jeep, they are perfect, however if you do any 4 wheelin' I would definitely recommend the good ole vinyl seat covers.
