TRD seatcovers vs. WO

Hi:

I need some seat covers. I see most of you have either or.

Can you advise and best place to buy?

The WO's are water proof, and more durable.

I prefer the WOs.

The TRDs *could've* been better, but they did them backwards. You see, my WOs are starting to wear slightly on the left side bolster of the bucket seat from where I slide in and out of the truck.

And my truck isn't my daily driver...it has just over 6k on the clock and I've owned it for a year...it sees about 20 miles a week, tops, usually a sunday cruise to keep it healthy. 3000 of those miles came in the first month driving it all over the state to show it off to friends and family. So it's not like I'm in and out of it all day. I've had the WOs on since last November...about 9 months?

If TRD had rubberized the OUTSIDE of their seat covers instead of the inside, I'd've probably sold the WOs while they were still in good condition and gone to the TRDs.

As it is, I'm going to run the WOs til they die and then go custom leather.

Hmm, not trying to thread jack. But it might be relevant if anyone else is seeing premature wear issues with there WO's.

I went TRD because it seemed that a good percentage of the WO's which were used on a daily basis had wear spots.

I bought WO in the past group buy and I am super pleased! Worth every cent. I can't believe how well made these covers really are. They don't even look like the average seat covers, look more like seats. I think this is the most useful mod that I can think of for everyday use of my truck. I'm glad I did my research and listened to the majority of people on this site. I can't thank you guys/gals enough. Not even the slightest sign of wear on mine and I drive this truck a lot

I have ran WO's in 3 of my trucks, and put over 100K on them.....Never had a wear issue. I have about 40K miles on my newest set, and no wear is showing....

Just to clarify:

You do have to look very closely to see it, but the nylon is fuzzing more on the outside of the left driver's side seat bolster, I think because of how I turn in place to exit the vehicle.

Right now, you have to be looking for it to see it. My question is, will it still be that way a year from now?

We'll see. Otherwise, I have nothing bad to say about the WOs, but this does concern me.

I have 43k on the clock and have had the TRD's in my truck for all but about 2k of that. They are showing no real wear at all. I was going to purchase WO but just never did. My Only complaint with the TRD's is when it is hot out the rubberized center will torch your ass... That being said for 125 at my local dealer I would buyt then again in a second and actually wish they made them for the rear seats as well. Just my .02

I have TRD seat covers made of a thin flexible rubber, and neoprene (I believe thats the material). Gray and black, with red "TRD" emblem.... they look great, keep the cloth from roughing up over the years, they feel great, I can wash them easy if something spills.

I love mine. Ill get some pictures soon if anybody wants....

There are mine. Sorry about the quality of the picture... too it with my phone.

the GRAY is neoprene (stuff that wetsuits are made out of)
the BLACK is a thin flexible rubber, slightly ribbed.... ah... for your comfort...
riiiiiight...... anyway...

they are super comfortable, and a day after I put them on, a friend spilled a taco all over the passenger seat. I took it off, washed it, not a mark on the seat, and cover looks like new now.

they look good
they make a comfortable ride
they clean up nice

just like a good woman!

Light colored leather, heavy window tint, sunshade FTW.

Too hot for leather was my first thought too (not that it mattered when buying as Toy doesn't offer it on the Taco), but the more I think about it the more sense it makes for me.

I won't be converting any time soon, but it'll happen eventually.

Bite the bullet and pay for the WO's. They really go with the interior plus they hold up very well. I promise you will not regret buying them!
