Ordered mine the last day. Got them in today. Install wasn't too bad. Didn't see a need to remove the seat at all.




Couldn't for the life of me figure out how to get the top part of the rear "seat" out. So still have that part to install.

I was worried about the black with the blue/gray interior. In person it looks good. Pretty happy

Very nice, it looks great. I have two questions though.

Did you get the passenger cover snug by the door, how?
And did you get the part snug where the bottom of the driver seat and bench join/ form an inward curve? How?

I believe the passenger side is snug. Did you tuck it into the plastic and route the snap through the plastic. It was a tight squeeze, but I feel it helped tighten it up.

The inward curve isn't 100% tight. It doesn't look like it's hanging or bunched up. It just appears they didn't cut the fabric back enough, so the inward curve is kind of hollow.

The place I couldn't get to hug is in the arm rest cubby. There's no attachment points, and the cloth is suppose to just kind of sit in there, but it's not firm enough to hold the form, and kind of sits loose.

I need to fix my passenger side just a bit. The inward curve is kinda hollow on mine too. For the arm rest cubby the fabric is cut right, it is just not held in place by anything. I have to hold onto the edge of the seat cover when I fold my armrest up, I just pull on it a little because it is a tight squeeze.

I have posted pics of mine back on page 1 of this thread. I do have a question about the console cover. Does the strap go in the back or the front? It seems like mine doesn't fit quite right either way I put it on. I still see part of the strap on the left side because of the push button to open the console. Other then that they look great, can't wait for the smell to go away though.

My console cover that came with my order doesn't have a strap.
The one I had in my 2006 did & would interfere with push button of the console like you guys mentioned.
Anyway I thought it was weird at first but installed it like a bonnet.
It worked better than my last one with a strap. Why two different versions of the console cover?

You can always order through auto anything & save 15% free ship.
After getting you order confirmed you can call wet okole & add a seat emblem or piping stuff you can't do through auto anything's online choices.
I have done that in the past when I had missed a group buy.

OT - I got my covers on Friday installed today.
I had placed my order a day late probably one of the last to order, Wet Okole still let me place it
Just basic black on black with seat pockets.
The seats are comfy now, no more mesh & side scrunching.
The 2013 factory seat design/seat foam is lame & breaks down very easily on the side.
I hope the covers help.
Will post pics tomorrow...but am sure you all know what they look like by now.

They had no piping though fwiw, a little bit of uv fade in places.

Don't know if you have the same style console cover that I was sent but mine is like a matress sheet in a way and has an elastic band all the way sewn around. What I did was unscrewed the plastic plate on the bottom of the console lid and carefully tucked it between the lid and that plate. It was difficult to get the screws back in having to push the cover aside at screw spots but it really made the console cover fit great. If I remember I will try and take some pics and post them.

ordered on last day of gb, arrived today!!!

i was so excited when i saw that the tracking info said they'd arrive today. first i cleaned the garage so i could fit the taco inside (mad snow). then i disconnected the battery, removed both front seats, and detailed the entire interior. i brought the seats inside the house to clean, and ups knocked on the door. o boy, was i pumped. i opened the box, double checked my order confirmation with the packing slip and began to lay out the new skins. wtf, only one seat heater? and it's on the passenger side? sweet. it was too late to call them...

guess i'll just put the seats back in so i can get to work, and see what they say...

anybody have experience with them "fixing" their mistakes?
