I think if I had to do it all over again I'd still do wet okoles. My dad has katzkins and I dont like them as much.

Im still leaning towards the wet okoles myself. I just like the color combos and custom stuff you can do with leather. Could probably make it match and go better with the tacoma interior with leather. Thats really my only reasoning for the leather.

I dunno, I've got this plan rolling around in my head to wrap my center console in neoprene, could be sick. Not sure yet. If I do that though, I think it'll look waaaay better than stock.

Agreed. Thats the other reason Im leaning towards wet okoles. I plan on the center console cover and the armrests to tie in more black.

My .2 cents is for the wet okoles. The waterproof feature has saved my seats from certain destruction. And they are easy to clean

If we had met when I was in AZ, you'd fully understand why it's gonna be orange lol. I'm still trying to figure out how to convince Stefen to swap interiors with me
