2014 WK2 Armrest Cover

My center armrest got all scratched up from my dog and looking to find a cover for my 2014 before this happens again. Anyone have suggestions for covers? I can't seem to find too many out there for 2014. Would you suggest neoprene or some other material?

I found this one... but obviously not for a grand cherokee.

Re: 2014 WK2 Armrest Cover

I was worried about the same thing when I bought my 2013. What I did was just take a small black towel, wrap it around the armrest and tuck it into the top layer of the console, and then close it holding the towel. I can still use the larger Bin and the towel stays in place really well. My dog loves to stand on the armrest with his front paws and it gives him a non slip surface in traffic.

Exactly my dog loves to stand on it to look out the window. I'm long for an option that I can still use the top part of the cover and the armrest cover is more attached.

Re: 2014 WK2 Armrest Cover

Well, I started using the towel as a short term solution, but it really does work well. It doesn't move at all, easily washed, it was really cheap, I can still use the armrest, and in the hot summer it feels way better than the leather on bare skin. It has become my permanent fix.

Re: 2014 WK2 Armrest Cover

This is the "cover" I got It looks much better Black on Black. I like it a lot and it's also a tad safer.

Amazon.com: Backseat Pet Barrier: Pet Supplies

I have a crazy dog and was jumping all over the front. They can trash the back seat but not the front.

I also got one of these for the back seat. I like it, except it is not water proof. How do I know, don't ask. Wish they had it in black.

Kurgo Bench Seat Cover, Black

I got this for the back seat and it's outstanding for keeping the seat in good condition. As got the front armrest that barrier is a bit extreme for my purposes. My dog is pretty good about laying down and hanging in the back while the vehicle is moving.

I just ordered that cover. Thanks.

My dogs are fine while moving. It's when we stop it's a problem.

It is a great cover. Just make sure to unclip the belt that goes around the back of the seat before lowering the seats. I made a mistake and tried pulling it off and ended up tearing a little bit at the connection seam. Nothing a little bit of dental floss and duct tape didn't fix though.

Thats not a cover (for the armrest), thats a barrier to keep the dog from getting in the front.

Re: 2014 WK2 Armrest Cover

Nice!!!

Just ordered the black one. If it is crap I'll return it, but anything is better then the leather getting torn up from her claws.

I am not sure of what other options are really out there. I do like the feel of the leather, but with a pet it takes a beating.
