Greg, I thought about it, but my passenger seat spends 99% of it's time facing the rear. They're sexy looking though.

Seems all they support are Jeep vehicles.

I had Wet Okole seat covers installed in my F250. Very well made and very comfortable. Luckily they have a location in Costa Mesa and it was worth it to me to drive down there and have them install them (for free I think). Tailored seat covers are a PITA to install in my opinion since they are made so close to the size of the seat they are covering, rather than the generic one-size-fits-all hefty bag approach of most cheap seat covers.

Wet Okole are one of the best thats for sure. They aren't cheap but you get what you pay for.

My wet Okle seats in the Jeep have ripped at the seam and the back is not neoprene and has discolored and doesn't protect the seat. I would look for all neoprene and two pieces, which I know somebody makes for Jeep, not sure about other seats.

My Wet Okoles I got for my jeep were all neoprene.... got them in early 01 and they were out in the sun every summer since with the top off the jeep. Wonder if they stopped doing full neoprene at some point or have different grade of products?

Interesting, i wonder if they got bought out just like Optima and started to slack on quality.

Work great! Pictures soon..

I got brave and ordered a set just before Christmas. 4wheel parts had a 20% off sale going and claimed a liberal return policy. Short story, they fit fine.
The only issue I ran into is there aren't a lot of places to hook under the captains seat I have in the 06 smb 4x4. Also not crazy about the assortment of pouches that come with them. They're ok, but I'm going to be looking for more. Pics soon.
