Heated work ok, a little slower and not quite as strong. Have not tried yet but I hear the cooled don't work at all. Will see.

I have the neoprene covers from Wet Okele. Expensive, but really nice fit, covers for everything. They are very comfortable and you can still feel the heat come thru. I'm in Seattle, so havent tried the cooling yet. LOL

Which one did you get? I've been looking at them, but am unsure what to grab. I have the leather seats, and am thinking about just putting the cover on the back seat.

Just got two lab pups that I'm sure are going to yield a ton of hair.

Did you ever get seat covers? I too have dogs that ride back seat and leather.

You were not asking me but .........

I have three dogs in the back seat and the carharts work great and look good also. At first i was disappointed on how they showed the dog hair but it comes off pretty easily. the 4th dog rides on the wife's lap.

I did. I got the Carhartts from my Ford dealer (only place I could find at the time that had them). They are fantastic... They do show the dog hair, but I vacuum them regularly during the heavy shedding seasons (they are blond labs).

I have the 60/40 split, with the center armrest/cupholder and three headrests. I think the price was about 170 for just the back, band they fit perfectly, and are washable if necessary.

the other good thing, in retrospect, is they hold the dog hair and clean up well. As opposed to the nylon ones I had before and dog hair was always blowing around in the Truck.

Try a Company Called Head Waters

I installed Realtree AP HD front and rear on my 2011 250 CC and they fit very well. Strong and solid built tailored seat covers including the air bag option. I had a very good experience with the company ... thumbs up!

I still have the covers now but I have leather seats in my 2012 don't need them.

Mine are leather too but that is what I am trying to protect when I am dirty and sweaty. Never had leather before, am I worrying about nothing?

No worries

I've been told that even though the seats are covered they still need to be cared for...ie treated periodically.

I have leather as well. I still like protecting the seats. Re-sell for one and I do take them off if going out or long trip without dogs.

OK, spoke to dealer to get a price on Carhart covers. They said, since I had a King Ranch, "there is leather and there is King Ranch leather and the KR leather scratches very easy" and that I should not get the Carhart's since they are very stiff and may do more damage to the leather than protect it. And I paid a premium for this fragile leather! So now I am confused more than ever. Is this BS or do I need to be extra careful with this crappy leather? The leather is nice but not the reason I bought the truck. Never had any problems with cloth seats.

Look online

There are others covers around and IMHO those Carhartt covers are Butt Ugly. I would put them in my Dodge but I sold it for junk 20 years ago.

Most of the upscale covers manufactures have an option for leather seats it does make a difference. When I ordered my covers from Head waters they asked me what type of seats I had.

If you can afford the KR then spend some $$ on custom - quality seat covers. Quit messing with the el-cheapo one size fits all crap...just sayin
