Finally got some pics of my new covers. I love 'em. I got mocha half piping with seat heaters in my '01 Tundra. They match the Oak interior pretty well. Thanks so much for setting this up!

Hey guys, so I had my covers installed recently (double cab sport). The other day I went to fold down my rear seat and noticed that the passenger side rear cover does not have an opening for the 'release tab' (next to the head rest). I can't fold down the seat back.

The cover on the rear driver's side has the opening, and I can fold that side down; but the passenger side does not.

Did they give me the wrong cover for that section of seats? Do you guys have the opening there? Seems like a no-brainer to have the opening, especially since there is one for the other seat. I am not about to cut a hole there either.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Mine had cutouts for both. They can be kind of hard to locate. I'd double double check just to make sure you didn't miss it. But, it should be there.

Finally got mine (had to send it back originally since I got the wrong seat pattern for the front)

Here's one for now ... not sure why my interior looks tan in this picture


Not impressed with the map pocket. As I was stretching the material to hook up the velco - part of the netting on the map pocket came apart
I spent over $550 for these...

Will get more pictures tomorrow when I install the rest and in better lighting

Graphite with full black piping

Call them and they will replace it. I had a few different issues with my covers and they are fixing them all.

hmm.. I will give it a shot. Just dont feel like waiting again to ship them have wait another (2-3) weeks before getting them back

But, I did get a chance to install them. Fronts fit nice and snug
The rears however are pretty loose.

What color combination is this? Charcoal with light gray logo and black piping?

Graphite with full black piping.
"Graphite" logo ... although it looks light gray. It's a weird color, kinda like felt. It changes color depending on the angle/light when you're looking at it.

Thanks I really like your color choice. Is graphite a new color? I don't see it on Wet Okoles site.

are ur front seat covers "light grey" or "charcoal?" Im looking at ordering some and thought the best option was light grey, but I think we have the same interior and if ur ordered the charcoal center colors, then its definitely the right one.

Thanks!

As far as the rear headrest covers, I didn't see any issues with them. Mine came with holes for the levers and they seem to fit perfect. There's no gaps or anything and they cover the entire headrest perfect. I did get black headrests instead of the charcoal and I really like them. I noticed on my invoice that they did not charge me any additional for requesting the black headrest covers over the standard charcoal. I thought they had charged me $10, but I noticed shipping was $30 instead of the $20 I thought it was (I was thinking two sets were two entire sets, not front and rears being two sets).






As someone mentioned earlier, the rear covers really make it difficult to access the behind seat and under seat storage areas. The covers are so thick that they want to "bunch" up when you move them forward and backward. The seat bottoms are also very hard to lift up because they are so tight. This is one aspect of the covers that I'm a little disappointed in. I think they would be better if the foam padding wasn't so thick. Other than that, I'm a satisfied customer. Here's the final product.

Mine are charcoal centers with the standard black, no piping. I also did all black headrests. If you don't specify, the center back headrest will be black and all the rest will match whatever color you choose for the centers. I think the all black headrests are sweet. I also did the "TRD" logo in black and asked them to leave off the small "Toyota Racing Development" part of the logo. Light gray are really light. The charcoal matches my interior almost perfect. I think the light gray would show dirt a lot easier than the charcoal also.

I do have a 2012 which changed a lot of the interior gray color, like your 2011, to black. But, my daughter has a 2011 and anything that is gray in both years is the same color.

Folks how are you getting the lower front sear covers so tight? Mine look loose compared to all of yours.

Thx

Make sure the straps are clear from the tracks of the rails, then just tighten the 3 straps as hard as you can. I guess?

Just remove the front seats from the truck. For the 10 minutes it takes to remove each seat, it makes the job so much easier.

They're like most electrical connectors, sometimes they can be a little stubborn. Just lift up on the little catch a bit and work back and forth until they come off. Driver's seat you have to pull one wire snap harness and unplug 3 connectors. Passenger's side you only have to unplug 2 connectors. Just work them a little. They will come apart.

Also, go ahead and take the 4 bolts out first. Then you can lean the seat back and get to the connectors a little better.
