Hey, guys. So today we're checking out the Smittybilt GEN2 Neoprene Front and Rear Seat Covers in black, fitting all 2018 and newer four-door JL Wranglers. So if you are looking for a set of seat covers that is going to give you a premium look, premium fit, and is also going to do a really good job of protecting your interior, this option by Smittybilt is going to be a great choice to take a look into. Now, this is obviously going to come with the front and the rear covers giving you full coverage for your interior, whether you're driving your Jeep on the trail and you want to protect your seats from any mud, dirt, or dust on the trail or you're just taking it on your everyday adventures and you want to keep your seats looking brand-new from any spills, protecting them from any spills or muddy paws getting in and out of the Jeep. Now, obviously, these are going to be made of neoprene, as it says in the name, which is going to give it a very form-fit design, but it's also going to do a really good job at protecting those seats, especially from spills, and it's going to wick water away very well while also being very comfortable. Now, the neoprene is going to be very comfortable to sit on, very stretchy around the seat, of course, to give it that form-fit design. It's also going to have a foam backing, so when you're driving around and especially on longer drives, it's going to keep you cool and comfortable inside the Wrangler for those longer periods of time that you're spending in your Jeep. Not only is it going to give you a very good fit, a very good look, but it is also going to have a premium aesthetic to it with the actual construction of the seat covers. This is going to have some nice red pinstriping that is going to give you, again, that more premium look, and it's also going to come with multiple storage, not only on the front of the seat but on the back, so you do get some organization and storage with these seat covers not only the protection aspect of it, which I do personally like.And when it comes to price, these are going to come in at roughly $225. And I personally think for the seat covers that you're getting that that's well worth the price. Now, again, these are going to be a more premium-style seat cover. You're going to get that sporty look. You're also going to get the additional pockets and storage and just some extra bells and whistles that some of the other neoprene options don't have to offer. And then we can take a look at some of those less expensive choices that are usually going to have more of a universal fit. They're not going to fit as tight as these. So, again, I think if you're looking for something that's going to look very good and almost factory when it comes to the actual appearance of the seat cover and you're also looking for something that's going to be comfortable and cool and also give you those extra bells and whistles that you would want out of a seat cover, then this is going to be a great choice. Now, when it comes to install, I'm going to give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. These are very easy to install. It'll probably take you about 30 minutes in your driveway to get the job done. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now.So to kick off this install, we're going to start in the front. Now, the front seats are going to have three pieces. We're going to have the bottom piece, the top piece, and then we're also going to have a cover for our headrest. I'm going to start at the bottom. Now, there are going to be two for each side, driver and passenger. There is going to be a zipper up at the front. This is actually going to be a pocket, so we're just going to use this as guidance on how to fit this on the bottom of our seat here. So I am just going to place this over the front, making sure that the buckles are over the seat or over the front, at least. And then we're going to take these shorter buckles in the back, and we're going to stick them through the crease of the seat so we can secure them underneath the bottom portion of our seat. Now, we can take the longer portion of our buckle that we had up at the front, tuck it underneath the seat to meet with the back one. We can buckle those both in place, and then we can tighten them up, making sure that they are form-fit to the seat. So on either side of the seat, we'll have two hooks. What we're going to do is hook them underneath and secure them down, making sure that the seat cover is sitting tight to the seat. Next, we can take out our headrest, pressing the button over on the side. What we can do next is take the top of our seat cover and place this over the top of our seat. There's going to be a flap up at the front that we need to pass through the crease of the seat just like we did with our bottom piece. Pass this right on through. Now, up at the top, you just want to tuck the top of the cover around the bezels for the headrest.So what I do recommend is to pull up this portion of the seat. This may not be true to all of the JLs, but this portion does have a couple of bungee cords that are attached underneath the seat. If you pull that up, it's a little bit easier to access the bottom part of the top seat cover. I'm just going to pull that through. Make sure that that's accessible. And then once that is through, what we can do is pull this down and tuck it to our seat cover. We can re-hook these back into place. There are specific hooks underneath the seat for that. We can also take these corners, and we can hook them as well. You can hook them to whatever underneath the seat. Just make sure that it's not a moving part or a wiring harness. There's one on each corner. So after the top portion is secured down underneath with the bottom flap as well as those two couple of hooks and straps, what we can do is re-install our headrest. So what we can do now is attach our headrest cover. This is just going to go right around the headrest. So once this side is complete, we can repeat that same process for the other front seat.So the back is going to be very similar to the front as to where we have a bottom portion and a top portion and we also have a cover for the headrest up top. Now, the bottom and the top are, again, going to be the same when it comes to the construction. We're going to have the two long middle straps, and then we're also going to have some bungee straps over at the side. Just make sure that it's form-fit. So I'm going to start with the piece of the backseat that has the single seat. So this is going to be the smaller portion. The other side is going to be the larger portion, so we'll get back to that in just a second. But I'm going to start with this side, making sure that these straps go down in the front. We're also going to take that bungee cord, and we're going to stick it between the seats. Now, you're going to have a lever on the back here to pull it forward. That will help you out. So at this point, what we can do is wrap the buckle up at the front and secure it to the buckle that we just tucked through the crease of the seat. There is going to be two up front, and then we can secure the little bungees on the side. So once you tighten them up, you should see the top of the seat kind of fit to the seat cover there. Then we can take the bungee over at the side and tuck this up and under. So there's going to be two on the outside and one on the inside. This is just going to keep the side secure. And then we can repeat this process for the other side on the bottom. So, now, we can work on the top portion of our backseat. I'm going to be working on the larger portion first. Now, there is a zipper that goes up the back of the seat cover. This is to get it underneath the seatbelt to make sure that the seatbelt is over our seat cover. So I'm going to completely unzipper this, and then we can slide this underneath zip out here. There's a bunch of Velcro. We're going to have to undo. Then we can essentially just wrap this around the back of the seat.Now, it is going to be helpful to lower and raise the seat while you fit this. Now, you're also going to have a flap down at the bottom that you need to tuck through the seat, so you can do that simultaneously. Now, I'm going to take out this middle portion because we do have a part of the seat that comes down. So this is actually going to fit over this middle part. I'm going to figure that out in just a second. Now, what we can do while we're back here is start to zipper this up. And you want to make sure that this flap that covers up that gap in the seat is pushed back, and we're not getting that underneath our seat cover here. What we can do now is pull that flap up. That's going to secure the Velcro on the back. So if you do utilize this armrest as well as the cup holders, you have it down often, and you're looking to keep that feature, what we can do at this point is attach the Velcro on the inside to make sure that the seat cover is tight. This is going to include Velcro in the kit. What I'm going to do is place that where we need it on the inside here. We can wrap this around. And this is just going to keep this part of the seat cover secure to make sure that stuff like this is not going to come out. And these are going to be pretty sticky, so you can ensure that they'll stay in place. We're also going to have two up at the top, so we can take these smaller strips of Velcro, place those in the middle there, then we can wrap this around. When you're finished, pop this up, and you can just continue to fit our seat cover.Now, we can repeat that process for the upper part on the smaller side, except for it's going to be just a little bit less considering that we don't have a centerpiece over here. It's going to be very similar to the front install. You can just pop this over. You might want to pull this forward a bit. Last but not least, we can install our headrest, making sure that the SB, Smittybilt, is facing outward or forward to this side. We can do the same thing on the other side. So as you saw earlier, I took out this middle portion here that was attached by Velcro as well as a couple of buttons. Now, if you have the part of the seat that comes down for an armrest as well as a cup holder, you'll be utilizing the two covers specifically for that. If you do not have this portion of the middle back seat, then you'll be using the cover-up that goes in the middle here. It's going to give it the same look as the neoprene that we have on the rest of the seat covers. This will as well. It's just specifically cut to the cup holder and armrest itself. So what I'm going to do is pull this down, and we're going to take this part of the headrest out. Once that's out, we can take this piece here. We can slide it over. This is going to be like a mini seat cover for your armrest, which is nice. Now, this portion is going to tuck up under. Now, just like the top of our front seats, this is going to also tuck around that portion of the headrest. We can take this little strap that we pulled the center part down with. Pull that through. I'm going to get it as fitted as possible. Take this strap, pass this underneath, all right, and pull that as tight as we can and Velcro that down at the bottom. All right. Now that that is on, what we can do is to put our headrest back into place. Last but not least, we can attach this piece of the headrest to our cup holder headrest here. So this is actually just going to tuck down on in. Pull this around. And this whole entire part is going to be open. I'm just going to buckle this behind and tighten that up. So that stays on there. There is also a clip to hold that strap there, and we can pop this back down into place, pressing down on the button. Pop this back. And then you just want to go back and adjust anything that seems out of place. However, after that's on, your model is set the go.So that is going to wrap it up for my review and install.
