Justin: The TruShield Neoprene Front and Rear Seat Covers that we have here today for the '03 to '06 TJs will be an affordable well-fitting option for owners either looking to help protect their mint factory seats or possibly cover up a set of worn and ripped seats instantly improving the interior in the process. Now, the TruShield options will feature a black wetsuit-like material along with some included foam backing and padding, all for right around that mid $100 price point. So, as I mentioned at the top of this video, guys, I feel like the TruShield covers will appeal to two different types of TJ owners. Now, first up, maybe owners who are holding onto a set of factory seats that are in great condition and just want to keep them looking that way, which let's face it, is pretty rare given the age and the use of these Jeeps.Now, the more likely scenario will be for the TJ owners whose factory seats have seen better days and you don't feel like forking out the big money to completely replace them. Now, a set of form-fitting covers like the TruShields here will be an instant upgrade and will affordably I'd say refresh the interior of your TJ, and the best part is these things can easily be removed and washed after a muddy day of wheeling. Now, the material itself is gonna be a four-layer, very thick, and durable neoprene, which is essentially the same material used in wetsuits. Now, this material has been given a UV coating to help prevent the black color from fading over the years, certainly worth mentioning for owners who choose to go topless more times than not. Last but not least, guys, the elastic properties of the neoprene material are really gonna help these seat covers hug those factory seats tight and won't get loose or baggy on you over a few months of use. Now, helping to improve that fit will be the fact that the TruShield options had been designed using OEM data so, therefore, again, you can expect these things to fit like a glove once they have been installed.Now, on that same topic, I will admit that tight fit certainly does make that first install a little bit challenging, but again, I go back to saying that the tight fit certainly gonna contribute to a more custom-tailored look as opposed to buying some cheap generic one-size-fits-most-parts store option. Now, the TruShield options do include, again, both front and rear covers, so you got a bottom and back for both the driver and passenger side, and you are getting the same for the rear bench seat. But before we get into the install, I just wanna remind you guys to check out the many different customer-submitted images and five-star reviews on the seat covers here from TruShield. And believe me, there are many guys. It's a great way to kind of read up on these, see how fellow TJ owners are enjoying everything once they've been installed. But now we wanna show you exactly how to get these things installed on your Jeep at home. Site is gonna call it pretty soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe 30 minutes of your time to get everything in place from start to finish. But to give you a better idea, here is an XT customer to walk you through the job now.Male: All right. Our first step, we're gonna identify the front seatback, and that'll be this item right here with a pocket in the back. Also, notice the seat lever hole so you know which side to go on. You don't wanna have to put one on and take it right back off. Anyways, this will be our first step is putting this one on. We'll slide it over the top and we'll get started. All right. So we'll take the opening here. We're gonna slide it over the top. Kind of line it up so it's straight on the front seat. Let's see here. And we're just gonna pull it down until we're snug and the seat lever hole lines up here. So we have it pulled snug. Seat lever is lined up. And then the next thing we'll do is we'll leave this fabric piece laid out here and we're gonna tuck that through. All right. So the fabric piece here, we're just gonna tuck it through the base of the top. We're gonna make sure it's all the way through so that way we can move the seat forward and grab it from the backside and we'll pull it up inside of the seat cover, and there's a Velcro strip that'll hold it.All right. So we have the fabric piece through the back of the seat. We'll pull the Velcro up so we can tuck the two in. So we'll take this fabric piece and we'll push it up underneath and inside. But when you put the Velcro down, it actually seals to that as well as the carpeted back of the seat. And that's pretty much the top. It's real simple. It helps when you're grabbing the front and the back to pull it down to get a little bit snug at the top, but yeah, it takes literally just a couple of minutes to get the top on. All right. So to identify the bottom cushion cover, here we have it. Again, this will be the seatbelt hole, so again, identify that. Make sure you understand or take note which side it will go on. We're gonna disconnect these here, and I'm gonna go ahead and extend the clips out so that way once we get it on there, it's gonna go underneath the seat and I need to reach the back, and then we can pull them snug. So we're gonna get this started. All right. So we're gonna work on this lower part here.One thing is when you're putting the front end on before you start pulling it taut, make sure you get it between the seat and the seat slide lever. You definitely don't want to cover that up and tuck the seatbelt here into the hole for it. And we're just gonna fit this on in the front as tight as we can, but we're basically gonna take this and tuck this through to the back just like we did the soft piece for the top. And then your clips will be hanging in the back and then we'll pull everything in nice and snug. Okay. So as we put this through, we're just gonna kind of shove it in. Again, once we get it through there, we'll go to the backside and make sure we got it pulled through nice and snug. But we're gonna adjust this seat so we make sure it's straight and then pull it through. All right. So we got our clips through here. So we're gonna pull this, which will actually tighten the front down. We get it snug around the edges and that's this part. The next step is gonna be to get this lever set up and then we'll pull the straps through and get them connected.All right. And then right here, again, one of the levers we wanna make sure it's on the outside of the seat as we do this, and then we can pull it down and pull it snug. So these seat covers are really great. They fit just right, nice and tight. Not a whole lot of loose ends. And so, I'm really looking forward to this and the way they're gonna look. All right. So now we're in the front of the seat. Here's your slide lever and your clips. We're gonna feed these through to the back. The main thing is on these, we wanna make sure, again, we don't interfere with the slide rails, and if you have any wiring or anything underneath your seat, you wanna make sure these are on top of that. So we're gonna fish these to the back so we can connect them on the backside, and then we can pull this here and that'll tighten up the cover itself. All right. So as we fish them through, it's pretty simple. You can just grab the end of it, almost throw it back there once your hands are on top of the railing and out of the way of the slide rails. And then once they're back there far enough, you will be able to slide the seat forward and reach them. This inside one, it's just at the same side. Here is your slide rail here. Here is where the strap is. So I'm gonna go just to the outside of that to ensure we don't interfere with that when we pull it tight. So, once we have them fed through far enough, we'll go to the back and pull them the rest of the way through and get them connected. We fed the front end forward.We're going to grab those, bring them on the top side of the railings, and we will connect them here, and then we can pull it tight. I'm gonna grab that other one real quick. Make sure we got that one here. So we have both the clips. Whoops, missed that. There we go. And then we can just pull them tight. If you need to, you may have to go to the front but I can just kind of stick my hand in here and just keep pulling until it's tight. There you go. All right. And then this one here. Grab that. Let's see. Pull it under. [inaudible 00:09:12]. We'll do that. This side is tight. And then we'll go to the front, pull that other one, make sure it's tight. So on this other side, I'll put the seat back. Couldn't quite reach it from the very front. I had to go off to the side a little bit, stick down in there, and then once you have it, you can just pull it. Everything should be lined up. Pull it. It's tight. And then we're all set.All right. Next step, we got the front seats done. We're gonna start working on the backseat. I separated the rear top for rear back of the seat, and this will just slide over the top. So I'm gonna go ahead and kind of get it ready. Undo our soft tabs here and fabric pieces. And that way, once we get in there, we can just slide it over the top and they won't be in the way. So let's get started. All right. So we're in the backseat. We're gonna take the back here, put it over the top, stretch it over to the other side here, and pretty simple. Pretty same process as the front, you know. We're just gonna make sure everything is lined up, the seatbelt holes, the seat lever here in the middle, and we're going to take the bottom pieces and tuck them through the bottom side. But once we have this down nice and tight, pull them from on the backside and the front side, and ensure we're straight and everything is lined up in the middle. Looks like I'm a little bit off, but pull it that way. Here we go.All right. Now it looks like it's right in the middle. All right. To tuck the bottom through, I pull them forward so I can get a better grip and better leverage on them, and then I just kind of work them through to the back. Let's throw all the way back and adjust the seatbelts here. Make sure they're in the right spot. And then I'll work on this side here. Same process. Tuck it through in on my side. And that's pretty much the front. Now, we'll work on the back. We'll get the Velcro and everything sealed up on the backside, and we'll make sure these things are pulled down tighter so we don't have the spaces here. All right. So on the backside, again, fabric has been pulled through. I'm gonna pull it taut there, and I'm gonna work in the middle first and then I'll work my way to the outside and then pull the top down. There we go. All right. Seat belts are through. Everything is there, and then we'll move to the left side here. And same thing. Pull it tight up inside the back, pull back down tight. There we go, and then we'll move to the other side. All right.On the other side here, pull it tight. There we go. Pulling it through. Up and inside. All right. That should be...There we go. Top is lined up. It's on and it's tight. All right. Moving to the bottom of the backseat here. I'm just gonna open this up. Disconnect all our clips and prepare them for install here. Just take all these off. We're not dealing with it in a tighter space so open it up. Everything looks good, and we'll get in the back. All right. So we're in the backseat. First thing we're gonna do, just kind of flip this down, get the straps underneath the seat. All the clip pieces here, line it up, and then we're gonna take the backside. So we're gonna go underneath the seatbelts. So we're gonna hold this up, push it through underneath. Front is good. Again, it's easier if you flip them up, get a little bit of leverage, and then push them under.Once we got it pretty much in there, over the front of here of the seat, we'll go to the back, we'll pull it through. We'll flip the seat up, and that way we can connect them and make sure everything is snug and tight. So we're gonna move to the back now. So on the backside here working on the bottom seat. Just kind of reach in here and grab that piece. We're gonna pull it through. I'm just gonna work away from the middle to the outside again. We wanna make sure we're underneath the seatbelt straps here.All right. So it looks like we got it pretty tight there and we're gonna lift the seat up, that way we have access to both the front clips and the back clips and we'll get it going that way. So once we have the clips through, we're gonna pull the top down and we're gonna connect them and pull it taut. Okay. Clips are in, pulled through. We're gonna loosen them up and we'll connect them to the top here. Pull that tight. All right. And we'll do all four. There's four of them total. [inaudible 00:15:58] All right. So I'm gonna pull those tight. And then there's hooks on the side. We're gonna bring those around and we're gonna connect it to the middle of the second end. Connect that there. We're gonna do that on both sides. So I'm gonna take that hook and again put it on this little strap as well. That should do the backseat.Justin: So if you are looking for affordable seat protection for your '03 to '06 TJ at home, be sure to check out the TruShield Neoprene Covers today at extremeterrain.com.
