  • Neoprene seat covers need your opinion

    I have a 2004 rubicon and I want to add some color to the inside I want to get red seat covers . I am looking at all of the different types and the only question I have is does anyone have neoprene seat covers and if you do , do they get hot in the summer and make you sweat because I will be in my Jeep about 4 hours a day driving. I will have the roof off alot so they will see alot of sun. I just want a seat cover that fits snug and has red in it.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    I don't have the seat covers, but I did want some really bad last year when 4wdh put them on sale, like 50% off.

    I've never heard a good review of them; I've heard they smell bad, they're hot, water (sweat) pools up on them, they fade and stretch quickly, etc.

    So I didn't get any, but who knows...

      I've also read more negative than positive reviews of neoprene. Stretch, fade, crack, hot and sticky, etc. I was considering them once, but I'll probalby hold out for new seats...mine are going to pieces. If they're just cosmetic and won't be subjected to a lot of environmental stress, they may be fine. I think there's some stuff you can put on them to ward off UV ray damage.

        Neoprene seat covers

        Although I've heard a lot of bad things, I've had my neoprene covers for about two years with no issues. They can sit in the sun (which can be mighty hot down here) and I can slide in without burning my a$$ as I would on vinyl. In the winter, they are warmer; when they get wet, they dry easily. And, they've not faded (though I tend to park in the garage, so that might have something to do with it).

        The only bad thing is that my back gets sweaty on a hot day... but, that's okay and the other good things offset it.

        Good luck!

          i love my neoprene seat covers, not only do they not let water get to the seat but they are easy to dry and real comfortable. they got lots of padding in the seat area. they've been on the jeep for 3 years now with no crack, and only alittle fading on the rear seat cause it spends all it's time outside... no garage for my jeep.

            Yeah....the thought of neoprene scares me as well.....I do not want to sweat in my Jeep.

            My vynil is getting teared up on my 2000...and I've only had it 4 months!!

            I would like a good cloth seat cover that will stay cool in the summer and feel warm in the winter....if they are removable I would assume they could be thrown in the washer??

              If you do a search on this board, you'll find that this has been covered before (several times in fact). Back before the crash, there were also a couple of discussions of a particular brand of neoprene seats that experienced severe issues with fading and sun-damage. I believe that was "wet okole" but do not want to da** them without proof.
              I ended up going with the Besttop cloth seat covers (they are vinyl-coated cotton) and have been very happy. a) they're inexpensive b) they fit like the were factory installed (and that's saying something given my ability to screw up almost anything) and c) they have worn really well, after three years they show no signs of fading, and are still snug with very little wear (just a little wear and tear where the driver sits on his daily drive to work).

                  I agree with Tom. The Bestop Seat Covers are a helluva lot better. I tried to buy the neoprene but for some reason it was going to take about three months to ship them. I decided to go with the Bestop Covers and glad I did.
