Marathon Seat Covers: Armor for Your Upholstery
These durable, snug-fit covers protect your vehicle's interior and look great, too.
Back in the day when my 1973 Land Cruiser FJ40 was my only hunting and travel vehicle, cleaning it out after a trip was easy.
There was nothing but vinyl, rubber and painted steel inside, so I just took it to a do-it-yourself car wash and power-sprayed the entire interior—much to the amusement of those in adjacent booths (“Hey pal, you’re supposed to use that on the outside.”). Dry off the vinyl seats, pull the plugs and let the water drain through the floor holes. Done.
How different it is today. Our trucks now have interiors that wouldn’t be out of place in a luxury sedan. Fine fabrics or leather are standard on all but the most basic models.
And that’s great if, like so many urban truck and SUV owners, you never get that interior dirty. But what about those of us who still use those vehicles the way all the ads show? Like, you know, in the outdoors?
Sure, we can just make the choice to ignore ground-in dirt, mud and blood, but the interior will start looking — and smelling — pretty bad pretty quickly, while the trade-in value plummets.
It’s better to armor up that upholstery, which I recently did for our 2012 Tacoma with a set of covers from Marathon Seat Covers.
