One of the sure things about owning a Jeep is that dirt, mud and moisture will undoubtedly find their way onto the upholstery. This is one of the reasons why many Jeep owners install a set of heavy-duty seat covers to protect their vehicles from the elements, especially when driving on trials with the top down.
But not all Jeep seat covers have to look like a canvas sack over your factory interior. Manufacturers like CalTrend, make custom fitted seat covers in a variety of fabrics and colors that actually enhance the appearance of your JK Wrangler’s interior while also providing superior protection.
Installation is easy and in this example, a set of CalTrend two-tone NeoSupreme seat covers are installed into this JK Wrangler Unlimited. The neoprene material is stylish and comfortable to the touch. Yet it is also strong, waterproof, and will also protect the seats from dirt, mud and the occasional coffee spill.
The company also makes seat covers in a DuraPlus fabric which is also very popular with Jeep owners. DuraPlus is a canvas-like material that is water repellent, nearly impossible to tear or rip, but is also soft to the touch.
The seat covers are marked to which seat cushions they are designed for. Because they’re designed using CAD/CAM systems, the covers fit tight and over the factory seat cushions. CalTrend also provides headrest covers, and the front seat backs feature an extra pocket to store gear or personal items. Depending on the year of your Jeep, the CalTrend custom seat covers will also have cut-outs for use with side airbags.
The installation takes about 45 minutes and simply involves slipping the covers over the seat cushions, and securing the adjustable nylon retaining straps from under the seat. Once the installation was complete, this Jeep had a custom two-color appearance that makes the interior really stand out. Manufacturers like CalTrend also offer a variety of other colors, and fabrics, including camouflage, that can match your personal tastes and lifestyle.
