Ryan: These Rugged Ridge Ballistic Seat Covers are for those of you that have 2011 to 2018 JK that are looking for both front and rear seat covers that are going to be very strong and offer a ton of protection. These are seat covers, so of course, they're going to install very easily, a one out of three wrenches, and we'll talk more about that in a second. So, I stress strength and protection with these seat covers because that's really what these are all about. It's not about the look. It's not about waterproof. It's not about other features and pockets and places to put stuff. This is about a seat cover that's going to hold up really well, be very strong, not wear out, and offer some really great protection to your seats.So if your seats are still in good condition and you wanna keep them that way, this is a nice option. If you already have some damage and you wanna go with a seat cover that's just gonna hold up and last a long time, these will cover up that damage and also offer that really nice protection. So I think that this is going to be really good for those of you that are using your Jeep on an everyday basis, maybe those of you that are going off-road quite often. You're in and out of your Jeep, you're dirty, you're messy. These are going to offer some great protection to your interior. These are a durable 840 ballistic material that's going to hold up really well against a lot of abuse that you can throw at it.Now, your seats do take a lot of abuse. You're sliding in and out of them, you're bouncing around in them, you're dirty, you just were laying on your back doing a trail repair, you get back into your Jeep. For all those reasons, you may be looking for a seat cover that's very, very strong, and this is going to do that for you. Now, this is going to repel water, not be water resistant, but in the same way that a neoprene material will have, a water drop will bead up for a period of time and you can brush it off, it's gonna do that. It's also going to repel dirt, so it's not gonna sink into this material like it would a traditional cotton seat cover. So again, it's all about the strength, it's all about durability with these covers. These covers come in at $150, and I think that is a fair price for the protection that you're getting here. If you are looking for a seat cover with more functionality and more pockets, more storage, maybe something that offers some additional padding like some of those neoprene ones, or different colors and different stitching, for something that has more of a visual impact, we have all those options. Most of them are going to be a little bit pricier than these. These are going to be all about function and all about protection, and if that's what you're looking for, I think these are priced fairly. Now a member of the install team will show you how to get these put on the seats in your JK. Man: We're gonna begin this installation on the driver's side. We're gonna slide the seat forward and remove the headrest. So to remove your headrest, you're gonna press this button in here, and press that one in on the other side. We'll just slide that up and out. Now, these seat covers come with a side flap, in case you do have a side curtain airbag, so we're gonna take that and we're gonna unzip this back side. Then we're gonna place this over. And then we'll slide it all the way down. So this piece, here, is just gonna slide under that section there, and then we're gonna Velcro this on. So now, we're gonna tuck this front section in. Then we're gonna pull this out the back side, let that hang, and then we'll zipper this up.So now, we're ready to install the bottom section. We're gonna disconnect our buckles, here. Place it over the front and then we're gonna have to shove these buckles through the back of the seat. So next we're gonna run our straps under the seat. Now, you wanna go in between the seat and the release lever for the slider. So next we're gonna take this side strap and hook, we're gonna bring that around the lever, and then we're just gonna hook that on the underneath. Next, we're ready to install our headrest, so we're gonna go ahead and slide that back into the seat and then get the cover on there. So we're gonna open up our headrest cover, slide that up and over, and we're gonna push this section through the front. Wrap these around. You're gonna follow the same procedure for the other side. Make sure you tuck your airbag flap in. So now that we're finished with the front, we're gonna start on the back, and we're gonna install the upper section first. So we're gonna pull on this tab here, and pull the seat forward. And you're just gonna loosen this Velcro, unzip this section here, then we can slide the cover on. We're gonna push this bottom section through and out the back. I'm gonna push this through and out the back of the headrest. So we're gonna pull this flap up, lay that down over there, attach our Velcro, and we'll get this side zipped and we'll get our Velcro up here. So now that we have our upper back section on, we're ready to install our bottom. So once again, we're gonna undo all of our buckles, then we're just gonna tuck that in between the two seats. Wanna get this buckle down there, too. And these buckles are gonna go through the back side. And then this one is gonna go around the side of the seat, so we're gonna pull the seat forward slightly, again, and we're just gonna tuck that back in there, wrap it around, then we can pull these other ones out of the back and then send them under the seat. Now we're gonna push our seat back and install our headrest cover. We're gonna do the same thing for the other side. You're gonna unzip this section. It's a little bit different. We're gonna have to go around the seat belt, so we're gonna take this around there, and we're gonna go through that zippered section, up and over the seat, and then down and around. And we're gonna push this piece through for the headrest, and we'll push these bottom sections out in the back. Then we can fold our seat forward and attach the back. So we're gonna go ahead and reattach our zipper up here. And we're gonna pull the bottom pieces up and attach our Velcro. And we'll get these sections in by the headrest.So now that we got the back installed, we're ready to install the bottom. Same thing. We're gonna undo all these buckles, tuck it in, and then clip them underneath. So once again, we're gonna take that foam side and we're gonna shove that in between. And we're gonna take our back side, we're gonna go in between our seat belt, shove these buckles through. There's gonna be three buckles total that go through the back side and are gonna wrap down under. Fold the seat forward a little bit, and we can pull these the rest of the way out. And then we're gonna shove these two buckles underneath as well. The last piece to install is the headrest. So there's a wider section on the front and a smaller section in between the seams. The smaller section's gonna go to the back side because of the taper. So with everything tightened down and adjusted, that wraps up our review and install.
