    I want to get the mopar neoprene like seat covers for my 2005 Liberty Sport. Unfortunately I can only find 2002-2004 sport seat covers. For 2005 I only found Renegade and Limited seat covers. Is there really a difference between the 2005 highback Renegade seats and the Sport seats?

    According to the 2005 Liberty brochure, the highback seats appear to be the same for the Sport and Renegade. However, the Jeep website indicates that there are two types of highback seats, one for the Sport and one for the Renegade (see the build and price feature: options).

    Has anyone had postive/negative experiences with the Mopar neoprene seat covers? Are they easy to install or do you have to pay the dealer extra $$$ to install them?

    I was thinking the 05 Renegade and Sport seats looked the same as well except for the cloth pattern. I think I will give the Renegade seat covers a try and see if they fit.

    Quick update: I received and installed the 05 Renegade high back mopar seat covers in my 05 liberty sport. Fit is not exact but very close. Close enough that I am not going to worry about it. Where the fit is not perfect is:
    1) The seatcovers go just a little above the top of the front seat integrated headrests.. but not much and not noticeable.
    2) On the rear seat where the metal part hooks under the seat there seems to be a little slack in the material (again not a lot). It seems to be staying though.

    But all in all these fit and look quite nice. And they work out to be cheaper than wet okole for both front and rear seat covers.
