Congratulations on the purchase. I would love to see some close up pics as you install them and once installed. I am looking at going with some type of seat cover once I save up some more money but havent made up my mind on which ones yet.


BTW........a write up on the install and finished product review would be helpful

Please post pictures when installed. The photos on the Autoanything aren't flattering (though the woman is cute). Because the ballistic fabric doesn't stretch like neoprene does, there looks to be a lot of wrinkles where the fabric has to wrap around a compound curve.

I read some reviews of past tacoma owners that seem to love them so i thought id bite the bullet and take a change. I've got a redheeler that loves the water and a newborn so i know the backseat is going to take a beating the next few years. The Cordura-Ballistic fabric is really tough stuff and easy to clean. I didnt wanna get the Wet Okoles just cause they're out of my price range since I'm a new Dad. I'll try and post some install pics. I'm not the greatest when it comes to adding pics I only know how to do the thumbnails. Can anyone help with that?

I ordered these a couple of weeks ago here are some pics of the soft inner material and the freshly installed product. I took these pics earlier today and been on the drivers seat for about 10 minutes since then and the wrinkles are coming out.

They were an easy install, look decent, and feel pretty tough. I'll upload more pics later on as they wear in. For the money,($150 shipped) I am very satisfied. These were a second choice to the wet okoles that were crazy expensive and I recommend these to those of you on a budget as well.

Two month update bump!


These are some tough seat covers. Not only does my coffee bead up on the seats so I can wipe them off, but they actually have kept my ass cool in this Florida heat. I've sat in them with screwdrivers in my back pocket and they come up unscathed. They've actually formed pretty well to the seats, as well. I'll probably upload some pics tomorrow to show you guys.

I've had the CoverKing Neoprene seat covers for almost 2 years now and I love them! They are not the same fabric but the fit is is awesome. They have taken some abuse from many camping trips and dive trips. No wear yet.

Save 10% off the total bill and get free shipping if you spent more than $150, use coupon code REFUND10. (works great if you're buying both front and rear covers).
