    Best thing about um is that when they are all muddy you just rip them off and throw them out. [​IMG]

    I am useing the Advantage Camo seat covers from Cabela's. I paid like 30 bucks for it and it is waterproof and machine whashable. The only thing is it kinda flaps in the wind if no one is sitting on it. Oh and it is fading too from the sun. Other than that it has worked fine....

    I had a cover like Burts. To keep it from floppin in the wind I used a bungie cord long enough when stretched to wrap around the back of the seat and connect to itself. Wrap it real low and it will tuck in to the crease of the seat, nobody will even know it is there. Keeps the fabric pretty taught and wrinkle free too.( It makes the cover look like a 2 piece)

    Don't recall where or when, but I heard/read something about the Wet Okole covers fading quickly, and also losing their waterproof/water-resistant qualities kinda quick, too.
    Of course, I could be dreaming...[​IMG]

    It's always darkest just before it goes pitch-black...

    I've had my Wet Okoles on for about 4 years now and they still hold a LARGE soda with nothing seaping through(don't ask just believe me). Of course mine aren't in the sun for months at a time. I even washed them once. That is the only reason my faded a little. Some others here haven't had such luck with theirs but I've been happy.

    i found a rear blue vinyl seat out of a 91k5 for $70, a little 202 protection and it will last a long time agints rain,sun, snow,sleet,hail,mud,sapp,and milkshakes.
     
  17. i got a set from cabellos for the front buckets and the rear bench. they arn't the best but they are water proof. had to modify them a bit to fit tighter- used some snaps and elastic straps. the only bad part about the rear seat cover is water can still get in where the seat belts come through. they are not the highest quality but they where cheep so thats why i have them

    I use water-proof / machine washable covers from Grant (steering wheel guys, among other things). Its been a lil while, but I am purdy sure I got them from cheaperthandirt.com. Maybe cabellas. At any rate, after using them for over a year, it rained hella hard one day with the top off and the thing collected water and didnt leak, except where it rained directly into the seat-belt holes. I like them a lot, even if a grl at school did say they look like body bags. (front seat covers do kinda I guess).

    Anyway, my 2 cents. Good product,

    J
