wet okole covers

If i get some wet okole seat covers for my ranger, and decide to take them off in a few years, will they thrash my stock seat upholstery from friction of the material? or are they soft on the underside?

Soft underside. Had mine on for at least 4 yrs and you can't even tell they were ever on there.

Thanks guys..

So to wash them, do i need to pull them off and throw them in the washer, or can i use water and a rag/ or cleaner?

do they suck up dust? i work in construction, so thats my concern..

I used to wash mine in the washer, but did wipe them off from time to time when I got mud on them. BTW, you don't have to use the WEt Okole soap, you can just use some stuff from a local dive shop. Anything that is neoprene safe.

On side note, anyone want some used black and tan ones cheap? They matched my tan 01 interior. I don't use them anymore as the wife now drives the truck and it really does not see offroad anymore.

They are stained (as you can see in the pics), but would make great offroading covers...pics....

If you have the cash, get the WO covers. If not, get a set of "pleather" ones off eBay. I've had mine for 4 years now and they still look as new as the day I bought them.
They are made of a thick leather like material and have a foam backing on them. The stitching is really heavy duty and the covers hold up to everything.

I've left screw drivers in my back pocket before and they don't tear or poke through. Best thing about it, I only spent around $120 and it was shipped to my door.

There's a lot to be said for eBay finds.
