Just got a new truck. And since I'm too cheap to buy leather interior, I need to pick up some seat covers to protect the interior from the dog, kid, and snow / mud trips.

I need something that looks and feels good, that can be removed and washed.

Any recommendations from experience? The neoprene is looking good so far.

Yes, the neoprene wet okele or cabellos etc. are the way to go. Look good, waterproof, they may stink for a couple of days when you first put them on but they hold up well and you can get them in just about any color combination to match your truck.

Seat covers are soo '84. I think you should go sheep skin.

I got one of the dog slings for the back of my truck. Works killer. Keeps the mutt, mud, fur where it belongs. Mine was from Cabela's.

I had the Okele seat covers in my jeep for years and really liked them. The only beef I had with them was they faded after time and they got really hot. Granted this was mostly due to the top being down, but the heat thing got annoying on 90 degree days. But they do look and fit great.

Thanks guys! Sounds like I need to check out the Okeles. I like the idea of neoprene.

Without a doubt, you're going to want to get camo ones.

Alright, so I priced out the neoprene seat covers. For the set I built on the website (complete with gun tote :-) the cost was $700 with tax and shipping.

That seems a little steep.

Scott, I have dog, a kid, and frequently visit the mud and snow. The interior of my last ride was trashed. Got to protect my investment somehow.

Dood, just get some weather tech mats and the dog sling for the back seat. That should pretty much get it done.

The gun tote is definitely worthwhile if you go that route. Ha, ha, ha.

Weather techs are already in!

I have to put some on the cloth seats to catch the dirt and dust.

Wait...couldn't you just have gotten leather for what you're going to have to pay to get good seat covers? :-)

Probably Eubanks. Actually I can have leather interior installed now for a little under 2 grand. To get leather on the original purchase, I would have had to upgrade to the premium trim package. It was a lot more expensive.

Hey Evan, can you give me some details to that "sling" you mention above? Just got a Golden and am going to need something to keep my leather pilot seats in the Yukon safe.......

Thanks

I think this is what Evan is refering to. My girl has one for her dog, works great.

Scott - word, thanks.

Yup, that's what I was talking about. I got mine at Cabela's. It was only $40. I'm not sure how long it'll last, but it works great. My golden is a baby. She tries to climb into the front seat while we're driving. Probably didn't help that she would ride up front on the bench seat when I had my F250. With the sling she lay's down and stays put.

Congrats on the Golden, man. They're amazing dogs. Mine's basically like my kid. Makes me smile everyday.

For sure. Have fun. If yours is anything like mine,then he'll love being on the boat. Trouble is keeping her out of the water everytime the boat stops.
