Did anyone here gave the seat covers of Smittybilt a try? Looking for some more reports as to quality and comfort of these;

So far only 1 review on Amazon and no information anywhere on any of the forums.. They really look nice and it would add some molle options to our JLU Sport S

4 wheel Parts ordered a front and rear set for me to have a look at with no obligation to by. The quality looked good so I bought the front set. The install wasn't bad. It took about an hour. The hardest part was hooking the S clips under the seat. Theres just not enough room to easily get two hands under the seat. I think they look good and fit pretty good. The only things I'm not crazy about is the way the seat back cover kind of bridges across the back and the side airbag pocket does not close all the way. Oh, these are made of ballistic nylon.

Thanks for the info! How about the comfort of the seat? Someone wrote on Amazon that only a part of the cover is padded and feels weird (like sitting at an angle). Did you experience the same?

I haven't felt anything odd. We went for a couple long drives and this weekend and the seatcovers felt fine.

Thanks! I'll probably have a look for these covers as well. Really like the molle system that is integrated on the back of the covers

I got some for Christmas. I like them. I used to have a Jeep logo'd towel thing from eBay which just sheds fuzzy junk that just hangs in the air. This is much better though I wish it looked easier to take off if I need to wash them.

Sorry for the late reply, we live in Dubai and the temp is now around 36C daily. I haven't noticed any extreme heat from the seats however you definitely feel warmer as there seems less ventilation going through the fabric. But so far I'm still happy with them and don't regret it.
