Retriever compatible seat covers?

Looking for better quality seat covers for my Wrangler TJ, I bought a cheap pair from Walmart when I bought the Jeep in 05, they really never fit, slide around a lot but did protect the OEM fabric. TJ is not a daily driver, spends most of the time in the garage but is driven regularly for errands, and to haul our 2 Labs and 1 Golden to the beach. Rear seat is out, only keep a bikini top on it, very seldom caught in the rain.

So what's the best fabric? Brand? Source? The covers I have now are about shot, and almost impossible to vacuum dog hair off of. Need to spruce it up a bit.

This. I would not even sell another seat cover but from them. Hands down top quality stuff custom made not a will fit thing. They know there shit and are made in Oklahoma. I just got in a car cover for a 1939 Ford coupe from them. fits like a glove and have the seat covers on my own Ranger very nice and they put pockets in the back.

I'd go with Bestop (Known for making the OEM soft top) seat covers. They are designed for the factory seats so they sit tight. They are vinyl though so they will get hot in the sun but will be easy to clean and won't pick up dog hair.

My favorite is Caltrend's I Can't Believe its not Leather. Mine have worn like iron, are pretty similar in feel to leather and are drool, mud, water, etc. proof. Perfect fit in my Ranger and look great. You already know that anything fabric will suck with that collection of dogs. Vinyl or leather or, with these, vinyl that feels like leather is the only answer.

I found a set of Covercraft Seat Savers on fleaBay for 100, should have them For the weekend. Really wanted the Carhardts but for half the cost these should be fine. Molly, Shelby and Willy approve and thank you for your suggestions!




Cheers
