Did those seat covers go on over the OEM covers? I need to get something for my Jeep seats.
Yes, they are slip on. I like them and I don't. They look and feel good, but they are sketchy quality. they use velcro and straps with clips to attach, and I tore the hem that the straps are attached to away in a few places. The stiching around the edges where the straps anchor is crappy. The covers are $250 a row from coverking distributors. They took about an hour to install.

I'm not interested in leather for the Jeep, but I may look into them. They look much better than most other covers I've seen.

They aren't actual leather. They are vinyl leatherette. I got them because the color matches my interior really well and they are pretty waterproof and wipe off easily.

I have a camo bikini top for the summer. I'm leaning toward a coordinating camo insert to match. I bought it with vinyl seats because of the rain possibility, but after 14yrs of burning my behind on hot seats and sweating even when the sun isn't blistering on them, I am thinking of a heavy duty fabric. Probably custom from an upholstery shop.

These guys actually do a canvas cover and polypropelyne, which lots of wrangler guys like. they also do camo.

I can't wait til my current tires wear out. I am going to get 17" XD Addicts in black with BFG MT KM2 tires.

Added another eight gallons of water storage under the bed. That brings me up to around fifteen gallons total. Ready for a week in the desert, now. :D

I also modded teh tire hoist so that the crank rod goes in through the fenderwell instead of straight out the back. It allowed me to tuck the tire up in tighter.

The tank is constructed out of 2-gallon polyethylene buckets welded together. Strange, I know. :rolleyes:



Just to give you an idea of what I do when I head to Arozona for a week,

Don't forget to upgrade the battery, the winch will suck down the stock battery (about 550 CAmps) Warn recomends a 750 CAmps. I put a 700 deep cycle in mine and it can run the winch on a sttep pull no problem. Putting a second Batt in bed when Cap is on that will be dedicated winch and whatever battery

Don't let the 4cyl bother you. It still has enough power to do anything you want.
Looks good by the way. I like the black out front lower bumper and black rims.
