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
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.
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....

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.
