Hey guys, I'm Eric with Extreme Terrain. In this video, I'm gonna do a review and install of these TrueShield Neoprene Front and Rear Seat Covers in black for all 2013 to 2018 JK Jeep Wranglers. You should really be checking these out if you're looking for a rugged, durable solution to adding more protection to your seats. Now, what are all the ways that our seats suffer, wear and tear throughout their lifetime? Of course, kids, dogs, or if you're blowing the doors off and you're hitting the trails, maybe you're kicking up some mud, dirt, and dust. That's all gonna get buried into the fabric of your seats. And over time, that's gonna build up and really give them a weather-tired look and wear them down. If you want to keep them clean, relatively good-looking, these neoprene seat covers from TrueShield are really a solid option for you.Now, these neoprene seat covers are really made from material that is similar to wetsuits for scuba divers. Now, if you're not familiar with that type of material yourself, I gotta tell you it's very nice stuff, very rugged, it's water-resistant, and it's also mold-resistant as well. So if you're out there and you like getting muddy, you like getting dirty, maybe have the top off and you hit a rain shower, you're not gonna really have to worry about that attacking these seat covers too much. It's gonna offer great protection and they're really gonna hold up to the elements that you subject them to.Another nice aspect to the design of this product is that they are padded on the backside. That padding is gonna add more comfort for you as you're sitting on your seats and you can remove these and they're very washable. So if you do get them all dirtied up, take them off, hose them down, dry them out, throw them back in, good as new. Not to mention we're talking, like I said, JKs here, and these fit 2013 to 2018 model years. 2013 means you're looking at a Jeep that's already eight, nine years old. And depending on how much hard use you're putting it through, maybe your factory seats are starting to look tired and they're starting to fray at the seams, come apart. So maybe you're also looking for an option to dress them up and give them more cleaner newer appearance. These seat covers will do that for you as well.Now, this complete set of covers comes with seat bottoms, backs, and headrest covers for all seating positions in your JK Wrangler. These come in currently priced around $225. That's a pretty reasonable price considering all the coverage you're getting for your Jeep. And it's very competitive out there compared to a lot of other seat cover options currently on the market.Now, as far as the installation goes, it's a very basic one out of three on our difficulty meter, no tools needed for this install whatsoever. You should have no problem getting it done in about 30 minutes time. So let's go ahead. We'll walk you through how to put these on. All right, guys, now to get started, I have the seat bottom cover for our driver's seat in hand, and you're gonna know it's the right one when you have this whole opening here on the side, and that's gonna go over top of this adjustment lever on the side of your seat.One thing I recommend doing, and you can repeat this as we go for each individual piece is that you take the strap and let out as much slack as you can. Not necessarily all the way, but pay out a lot of slack there so that when we're tightening these down and clamping or clicking the buckles together, I'm not gonna be pulling them real hard to stretch them into place so you can get them clicked and then just pull on the strap to get at a nice snug fit. Just a little pointer there.So I've done that, just did that right in front of you. And we'll go ahead and disconnect these. With these on the seat, not only do we have these two buckled straps, we also have these kind of bungee straps here that have some stretch to them and a hook. We'll be able to hook these down on the underseat frame and we'll show you that in a second once we get this on. But pretty straightforward, it's going to get it started.You can take a strap and feed it through the seat bottom. You can just push that buckle through and retrench from the backside and pull it tight. All right. Now to get this around the handle here, got that Velcro. That's nice and snug. Now, this strap right here, and just find a spot on the underside of your seat on the frame of your seat and click it on there. The key there is you do not wanna have that attached to anything that's gonna be part of the slider or any movement under your seat. So whatever you're clicking on to, you can test it out by moving your seat forward and back and see if that's gonna interfere. Just make sure you do that before you go driving away.Now there's another plastic hook on kind of a stretchy bungee strap that's on the inside towards your gear selector. And you're gonna wanna grab that one and pull that down. You can either click it onto a part of the frame or they stretch enough where you can bring them together and both of those hooks can hook on together underneath your seat. It's your choice however you wanna click those together. Now, go ahead and take these, feed them under, and from the center here, should be able to connect your two straps together.All right. Once you have everything clicked together, just go ahead and start pulling the strap on the buckle and tighten them up. Okay, now, in order to get the seat back on, you gotta take the headrest off. You're gonna have a button on each one of these you need to push in. And we're just gonna set the headrest aside for a minute. And the reason we took our headrest out guys, as you can see in the top of our driver's seatback cover, they just have holes there. So when we slide this down over top of the seatback, you're gonna have to line those up and then your headrest posts will go right down through these holes.The only two places that you can kind of loosen up the fitment on this is a Velcro strap right here at the bottom. And this is what's gonna wrap around down here kind of towards the driver's door, as well as this right here. And when we slide the cover down over the seat, this little flap here will go through the seat to the back and then we'll Velcro it up. So other than that, we're just gonna slide it on.Okay. Just as long as you make sure that you're not interfering with your seatbelt, we're good to go. I know this flap here, we're gonna tuck through. If you want to, you can kind of put your seat forward as much as you can. All right. I grabbed the tail of it down here and just pull it through till you have it nice and tight. I'm gonna tuck it up under. The Velcro strip right here is what's gonna bite onto this.Okay. In your kit, you're gonna have four headrest covers. The two for the front seats are the ones with these Velcro straps in the bottom of them. As you'll see here in a minute, the headrest covers for the backseat simply slide over. There are no Velcro straps in the bottom of, so that's how I can tell which ones go where. So go ahead and grab your headrest and where the tag is here, we're gonna put that towards the back. And then just simply Velcro it closed. I'm sure you have it nice and snug on there with the posts coming down through those openings. Just go ahead and reinstall your headrest. All right, guys, then just go ahead and repeat what we just did here in the driver's seat over on your front passenger seat.All right. Like I mentioned earlier, we have a number of straps on the larger 60% section for our seat bottom here in the back, just to make sure you have enough slack on all of them. Most of these straps go front to back, but you do have this long one that's gonna go side to side. So once you have the slack paid out, go ahead and disconnect them all. And we're gonna start by feeding these straps through the backseat here. And as you see, you have these little cutouts. That's gonna go around your hinge points here for your seatback.And then to snug it up, I'm just gonna reach underneath and pull the straps down. That'll help snug this seat bottom to the back. Now, it could be a little bit snug where the seatback and the seat bottom kind of come down together and get close to the floorboard back here. So if you need a little bit of extra space to get these buckles through, just lean your seat for just a little bit, and that should make it a little bit easier.All right, guys, once you've fed the straps down through the back, I pulled them back towards the front, and you just kind of wanna count them out and line them up. Make sure you're getting all your straps accounted for and just start at the one end. All right. Now, we're just gonna go down and tighten them up. All right. Now, all of our front-to-back straps have been clicked together and we've got them cinched up. So go ahead and grab the one that goes laterally. You got a lot more slack on this end. I'm just gonna run it through and then we'll click it up and tighten up.All right, guys, now for the seatback over here on the 60% portion of our backseat, there are two adjustments you can make with the seat cover. One, you have the zipper here. We're going to undo that and then the Velcro along the bottom. And we'll kind of pull that tail out a little bit. The one tricky thing here is you need to get the seat cover behind the seatbelt that's kind of built into the seat here. And that's why you have that zipper opening right here that's gonna allow us to do that.And then the zipper part here, we're gonna flip around the back, undo this Velcro up top here because we can't remove these headrests. That Velcro we just disconnected, push it through. Once you have this all started, we're gonna move around to the backside of the Jeep. All right, guys now put your seat back for just a little bit, and we're gonna wrap this around. That's gonna fit that nice and tight. And before we go any further, start your zipper up top here.All right, guys, go ahead and cinch up this Velcro here. Readjust these side ones if you want them a little tighter. Now, go ahead and grab the tail of it that we stuck through the bottom. Pull that tight. And again, this has the Velcro here. So you're just going to tuck this up. The Velcro is gonna bite on that tail nice and tight just like that. Okay. Now we're on the driver's side backseat and there's seat bottom here. We already got everything paid out slack-wise and the buckle was disconnected. Just gonna set it down and get our straps fed through the seat bottomAll right, go ahead and put together your straps from front to back, and cinch them tight. And then finally, we'll do the one that runs side to side. All right. For our final seatback cover, go ahead and open the zipper. All it's gonna do is open it up and make it a little bit easier to get this fitted on under your Velcro at the bottom, and then under your Velcro at the top where we're gonna slide it over the headrest. And again, if it's a little bit too tight here between the seats, go ahead and tilt your seat forward.Kind of pull this tail out a little bit and then we can tuck it in. All right, now, down here, we're on the backside. Let's do that tail, nice pull, and we'll tuck it in here. All right. And then we'll tighten down those Velcro up here by the headrest. All we have left is we're gonna slide on the covers for the headrests themselves and then we'll be done.All right, guys, that wraps up this review and install of these TrueShield Neoprene Front and Rear Seat Covers in black for all 2013 to 2018 JK Jeep Wranglers.
