I'm gettin' ready to order some seat covers, but realized that I think there's an air bag mounted in the seat back...correct?

Has anyone heard of an issue using seat covers on modern seats w/ airbags??

:hmm:

Wet Okole's

Just ordered them after finding the section where they are air bag compliant.

Last time i used seat covers, it was on a 1977 model...things have changed a bit!

Does anyone else have any issues with the way their stock seats are WEARING?

I've almost worn a hole in the left side of the drivers seat back already (20-k miles)....

The driver's side seat back, lower, outboard bolster has been showing signs of wear since bout 5K, the material is a little frayed and the black has worn off and looks light gray.

I got a snag on my passenger side bottom cusion within a few weeks because that's were I always put my laptop bag. The woven fabric may be good for letting it breath and dry out from getting wet, but it snags easy, wares easy, and hair gets stuck in it easy (dang dogs). Seat covers are defiantly a good idea.

I ordered WO covers for the front seats. Black with red piping. Is the seatback storage an option or does it come on all of them? Haven't decided if I'm going to do the rear. I never use the rear seats, so I may just remove them and build a custom rear bed and storage drawers.

Seat wear

Hey DEWFPO.. I'm thinking we'll all need to buy WO's at some point:D I'm sure the outboard bottom side will wear out on mine. I keep the seat high and slide in and out over the thing. Seat back storage would be nice. I used vests on my Jeep seats and it helped. Ron

Why would you put seat covers on your new seats? So that when you eventually sell it someone else can enjoy the new upholstery?

No, so that when my fat ass wears through the same spot again, I can just replace the seat covers!

Or, if my fat asss takes a WHILE to wear through, I'll have new looking seats @ 100-k!!

SELL?? First I love my FJ, and who wants to buy a truck that's gonna be ripped apart (to replace fender aprons)??
