Hey, guys. Today, I'm here with the Smittybilt G.E.A.R. Front Seat Covers in black, fitting all year Wranglers. So sometimes adding some utility as well, some functionality to your Wrangler, does not always involve big and expensive modifications, sometimes the little ones really make a difference. So this Smittybilt G.E.A.R front seat cover is gonna be a perfect example of that, while adding a ton of protection as well as a ton of storage. So these are gonna be for the Wrangler owner looking for that heavy-duty protection with this heavy-duty material here, that I will tell you about in just a moment. This is also gonna be for somebody looking for a custom seat cover, a custom style feel, this is gonna have a very military and utilitarian style feel to it. And it's also gonna come with a MOLLE and PAL style attachment system with seven storage bags. So this is gonna offer a ton of different storage for you, for your everyday adventures or your adventures on the trail, which is something that you don't get inside of your Wrangler. We all know that storage space is very limited. This will also come in a tan option if you are looking to go down that route. So, at the moment, these are gonna be just south of $150, which I personally think is a very good price for what these are, even though they are universal.So those other less expensive options that you may be seeing on the seat cover page will be roughly $30 to $50. Those are gonna be for other universal options. However, those are just gonna be throw-on covers that are gonna provide temporary protection as to where this offers you a ton of different benefits, not just protection, Then you have all of those other more expensive options that can range anywhere from $150 to even $250. Those are gonna be year and model specific, that are very formfitting designs, similar to an upholstery type feel, or a full-out seat cover. Now, for what this is and what this offers, I definitely think that is worth the price. And there's really nothing else like it on the market right now and I think that really stands out about this seat cover. So install is gonna be a very easy one out of three on the difficulty meter. It's seat covers so these shouldn't take you any longer than 20 minutes to install. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. So the first step to our install is just to pull the seat all the way up forward so we have a little bit more room to work with and we can remove our headrests. So around the sides, there will be a string similar to a shoelace. All you're gonna do is just loosen that up. So we can slide the seat cover over the top portion of the seat.So you do have a bunch of extra string so you can just loosen the drawstring and loosen the sides up, just like a shoe. So, as you can see here, they give us a bunch of extra string and this is just gonna be here so we can adjust this, make sure that it fits the best. So even though this is universal, I do like how this fits. It is going to have this drawstring on the side that you can adjust, making it a little bit more fitted than a lot of other universal seat covers, which is really nice, in my opinion. So you're just gonna have to mess with the drawstring and adjust it as best as you can. So I do wanna make sure that we can open up the top here to make sure that this is adjusted correctly. That is looking good and centered. So, once that is in position, we can go ahead and grab our drawstring and tighten that up the best we can. So after putting this on, I do like how it fits. It's not going to be a form fit design per se like a neoprene seat cover but that's not really what this is used for. So this is gonna be used for protection on your seat, to protect your leather seats while you're out on the trail and it's also gonna be used for storage, adding a little more utility to your Wrangler. So speaking of protection, this is going to be rugged but pretty comfortable. Like I said, it's not gonna form fit to the bucket seat but it still will be comfortable made of a 600 denier polyester with a PVC liner. So it's gonna be rugged but it's also going to be pretty comfortable for you to sit on while you're out on the trail or even out on a camping trip.So now that this is on, let's move over to the other side and get that one on as well. So we're gonna do the same thing on the other side. We're gonna move the seat forward and then we're gonna take off this headrest. So once that's off, you can set that off to the side and then we can go ahead and loosen up our drawstring as far as we can. These are gonna be super easy to install, super easy to take off. If you ever get them dirty, you can spray them down with the hose, wash them, they will ready to be reinstalled again, very simple. So when you're going to loosen this up, I would start at the bottom, work your way up to the top because we do need to loosen up this top area so we can get our headrest back on there and pull it down fully so it fits correctly. As soon as you get them sitting where you want to, making sure that these strings are out of the way of your headrest, we can go ahead grab that drawstring and tighten everything down. So I just tied this up here. I just wanna make sure that these strings don't get stuck in our seat rail. So as soon as have that on and tightened down, and in position, we're gonna pop our headrest back on, making sure that these are out of the way. This one's gonna... And we're all set to go. So, really, the main purpose and benefit from these seat covers is all of the storage that you're getting inside of your Wrangler, once you attach all of the attachments that this comes with this. So this comes with seven different attachments and you do also have a couple attachments that are sewn in down at the bottom. You have a big pouch here on each seat cover as well as a bag. It's kind of...your passengers can use this as a trash bag or you can use it for really anything else depending on your setup. So all of your attachments will come with heavy-duty buckles. They'll come with MOLLE and PAL style attachments to attach to this grid system here and heavy-duty buttons. So these do seem pretty solid, pretty tough, and really ready to stand up to whatever you're willing to throw at it. So all you have to do is unbuckle these and attach them, really, wherever you want. And it even has a tab in here so it's gonna be rigid enough to stick through these straps here. So what I do really like about these seat covers is the fact that it gives it a military-style appeal. You do have this military style American flag here. I do really like how you can attach any Velcro attachments. But if you're not American and you're Canadian, they also come with little Canadian flags. And I do really like this, it gives it a really nice touch and a really nice feel to these seat covers. So that's gonna wrap it up from my quick review and install on the Smittybilt G.E.A.R. Front Seat overs in black, fitting all year Wranglers. For more videos like this, keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.
