The back seat cover looks like it'd cover the whole back seat but I didn't put them on because If I wasn't going to keep the fronts then I wasn't going to even try the back seats but it looks like i'd cover it all

They look OK but I am not so sure about covering my better looking seats with plain grey ones.

Hummmm...they look pretty good. You don't get much for $50.00...maybe you should be the beta tester!

Come on guys. They are seat covers for $50. What did you expect. You spent almost or more than $30k for your truck. Spend the extra money and get something you'll be proud of and actually like.

Or buy a dog hammock for the back seats.

I hear you man.

Well I ended up buying the seat covers from tacoguy for shits and giggles, I'll get in the mail this week. I'm planning on upgrading once I can afford it, but until then I'll try to make this work.
Too bad they don't protect the whole seat as well as the more expensive options but it protects the parts most likely to get torn up and will be better then nothing.
I'll post here when I put em on.

Look pretty good, how .

My opinion on the best seat covers is marathon. www.marathonseatcovers. c o m They aren't leather, but as far as durability and all that for a seat cover, they are the best out there in my opinion. I've had them on my ford superduty for over 4 years and they still look great and fit great. Lot cheaper than wet okoles

In my experience with seat covers you really get what you pay for. Most only last a year. I just installed my new superhides by marathon. They are bomb proof and I purge them to wet okle because they are more durable and you don't have the back sweat issues you have with wet okle. I will put up some pics when I get a chance.

$30k truck, $50 seat covers? All you have to do is go into autozone or pepboys or whatever and see all the seats covers there, they are almost identical to all the other cheap seat covers sold. Think about the material, how much is paid for labor, shipping, etc...you tend to get what you pay for in most circumstances.

Im highly considering Cover Kings atm in the Kryptek Thypon camo print located here http://www.carid.com/2002-toyota-tacoma-seat-covers/coverking-camouflage-seat-covers-16381241.html

Ive been looking for / considering seat covers for a while now and this thread was an interesting read. Anyone have opinions on CoverKings? This is the CoverKign site link as well with the Kryptek on the seats http://www.coverking.com/custom-seat...s/kryptek.html

Let me know,

I have Cover King ballistic grey in my 2014 standard cab. The only negative response I have is that the method of securing the seat back does not take into account the wiring harness for the side air bag. I noticed when I was installing the seat covers that there is a plastic shield running up the back of the seat (bench seats) in my truck. This plastic shield I take it is there to ensure that the wiring harness does not get damaged in everyday use of the vehicle. I left it in place and, because of this I was unable to secure the Velcro strip which is supposed to keep the seat back cover in place. This was mildly disappointing but, the cover fits tightly enough that it has not been an issue.

Other than this mild oversight by Cover King, and the length of time I had to wait for delivery ( It took six weeks) I am very pleased with my seat covers. They match the interior of my truck so well that unless I point out that I have seat covers no one even gives them a second look.

By far the best seat covers on the market are from www.coverking.com if you ask me. My wife has a 2008 4Runner with 117k and seats look brand new and hers are waterproof for trips to the lake and beach with the dogs. You wont be disappointed but they are a little expensive.
