Dust. Dirt. Mud. Sun. Rain. None of these things are particularly friendly with the seats inside your Jeep.

And yet these are the very things we subject our seats to each time we remove that hard or soft top for an open air experience.

Whether it is mud splatter that gets inside during a weekend adventure, or the sun beating down while that top is off for weeks at a time. Perhaps even a pop up overnight shower soaking the interior. Things happen. And these things can have long term consequences to your Jeep seats.

So a good set of covers, regardless of fabric type, is usually a solid investment in order to help protect those seats while also adding some additional comfort and style.

Now, this isn’t something to get terrified over. Your Jeep seats certainly won’t suddenly disintegrate because of some water or mud, but it is important to get them clean or dry when this happens to prevent additional or lasting damage. However, keeping them clean and in good shape is definitely an uphill battle without something around for protection.

I don't know about you, but I would much rather remove a dirty or soggy seat cover and toss it in the washing machine, than having to crane my body into strange positions trying to clean the seats while installed. Plus, it is not just mud or rain getting deep into seat fibers, but pollen from plants and trees as well. So putting covers on those seats is a solid first line of defense.

Another pesky element that damages Jeep Wrangler seats is the sun. We all know driving around with the top down or off is one of the best parts about owning a Wrangler and while this is a fun perk, it normally leads to seat damage over time. That’s because the sun’s UV rays can weaken threads and fade color whenever they have top off access to your seats.

Think about it.

It is the same way with your skin, and you (hopefully) use sunscreen every time your plans include a lot of outdoor time. So imagine those Jeep Seat Covers as the sunscreen that protects your seats — especially if you leave your top off the Jeep for long periods of time.

Seat covers come in a wide variety of colors, fabrics and styles that provide a fit for virtually any budget out there. Plus, if you want to change the color of your Wrangler seats to match or accent your Jeep's theme, seat covers are a great way to accomplish that goal.

The most popular seat cover fabric currently is neoprene, because it can absorb moisture, hold up to UV and provides a soft feel. Plus, it is easily removable so you can toss it in the wash when dirty.

Other seat cover materials include vinyl, ballistic nylon, polycotton and cloth, with each offering different levels of protection and durability, while giving you plenty of choices as to how you will keep your Jeep seats in top shape.
