let me rephrase, i want to know if anyone has an 09+ truck with trd seat covers that has been in an accident or bought the truck with them on... my issue is my dealer (kingman arizona) sold me a truck with a potential hazard in them. what if the SRS bags deployed and killed me or my wife?
I am looking to see if there are other model trd seat covers for 09+ trucks due to the side curtain airbags.
Wet Okole's are a whole different league of seat covers than the TRD covers.
If you don't need seat covers, then I would say sell the TRD covers you have and call it a day.

This is exactly what would happen.
The airbags would deploy but would be rendered useless given that they would not be able to penetrate the sides of the covers.
I would say given that the truck was purchased three years ago, there is not much you can do as far as getting the dealer in trouble.
The short answer for your situation is that if you want seat covers (which would be implied by the fact that you have the TRD covers and you just reinstalled them, or attempted to), then you would need to find some other brands of covers (Wet Okole, Coverking, etc.) that are compatible with Side Air Bags.
