sounds like you can organize it! it was a fairly big production organizing this one and i really had no part in that aspect. there were several hundred rows ordered, and wet okole were pretty specific how things would go down... and granted i think everyone got their covers eventually, the communication was sloppy at best from wet okole, and frustrated many. but, seems that's how group buys go

"We" will be in highlights as Chris did everything.
Chris came over and helped with my install today (160 degrees out). "We" took out the front seats and then started on the center console.






"We" took apart the console cover and then disassembled the mechanism.



Slip the cover on and...







...let Chris do his magic...(he was trying to get out of the pic but I caught him)



Wa La!





Awesome install Chris, thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it *looks* like you didn't put that plastic piece back over the straps - is that how it's done? that's where i was struggling, it didn't seem like i should put that plastic piece back over the inside of the lid...

so the 4 screws & that plastic cover on the bottom are left off, and that's how you tuck it! i'll try that out.

please correct me if i'm wrong, it's just how it looks in your pics!

No, the strap is cut off and then the plactic piece is put back. Everything gets put back together.

Yes. You tuck it in uner the pastic cover. Be carfull, as the plastic is soft, and the screw can strip easilly.

I put mine in a few weeks ago, but just took pictures today. I plan to re-do the console cover the same as shown above later today. I got the black w/ charcoal, half-piping and black TRD Off Road logo.







And w/ the one who really owns the back seat...

i don't know too many people that would want a wet okole ad on their seats... i'd rather nothing than that... with that said, i did pay extra for the TRD offroad adverts!!

soooo i redid my console cover... wow that was a pita. maybe it would be easier with someone helping, but it was not easy alone. i think i stripped one of the screw holes, but oh well. it's in there pretty snug. i didn't get it tucked quite as much as i would've liked, but it's impossible to get the piece of plastic on while the top console is disconnected. that would've made it 10,000x easier, but not possible.

i like these seats - the only downside is they don't breathe as much as the stock trd buckets do. so i do end up sweatting more, which is disappointing, but not the end of the world. i may take off the backing during the summer (at least for my seat) but only if it becomes a bigger problem. now the black leather in my maxima, i would've LOVED these seats in that car haha!

I re-did my console cover, too, and it was definitely a pain in the ass! I have a console safe, and one of the five screws that holds the plastic part on the cover fell behind the safe, so I'm down to just four holding it on. It's working so far, though, and it looks a LOT better.

These seats don't breath like regular cloth, but they're 1000x better than the TRD seats I bought (then sold) last summer. Those have a rubber material in the middle and I would come home w/ sweat on my back every day. These are nothing compared to that.

I drove an insane amount of hours this weekend and noticed that I would sweat more with these seats. I don't think its a deal breaker by any means. I also spilled a Chic-fil-a Peach Shake all over the drivers seat. OMG, I could not have been happier with the ease of cleaning them. No stains and no issues. After wiping them off I poured water over the seats and wiped them down. These are the best covers I've ever purchased. They clean easily and don't move or slide when I get in and out. No bunching up under my a$$ causing discomfort. Best bang for the buck period!

My orange Gatorade was no match for the driver seat cover.

Worried me some regardless of the 'waterproof' claim, until i wiped it and saw it dry without staining. Took a peak under and no stain on the 'real' seat either.

That was the first real test.

Verdict; Pass

WO Group Buy

If another group buy for these covers does come up, I would definitely be interested. After hearing all of the positive comments from the current buyers, I regret not getting in on it!

I have a 08 Access 4x4 TRD Off Road. What specifics would I need to order? I don't know the difference in seats. I might just order my own but don't know exactly what to get for type. They also show rear covers for the access but it still confuses me. Anyone help?

You should be able to call them and have them help you thru it...I'm pretty sure the TRD Sport and Offroad have the same seats-Bucket Type.

And yes..they have rear seat covers for the access cab- They take a bit of work to install on the backs...The seats are pretty easy.
