Appreatiate it man!! Bery happy with them only thing i wish i wouldnt have got was the gun tote it is worthless but other than that it is sharp, great fit, a damn comfortable too. Gonna have to paint the rings around the odometer, door speakers, and other thangs then itll be up to your level. How hard is that to do by the way disassembly and all?

It isn't that hard, just takes a bit the first time around taking it all out. The tweeter rings are a pain because you have to removed the entire door panel, it's 2 screws (one by the lock and one by the grab handle), after that just pop it off starting at the bottom and work your way up. With the odometer rings, remove the kick panel and behind it up top is a 10mm bolt, there are 2 plastic screws at the top of the odometer (be careful, those break easily) after those 3 pieces of hardware are removed stare popping it off by the kick panel just enough to disconnect you switches (fog lights, locker, etc) then work your way around slowly popping the tabs out. Make sure you steering wheel is lowered to give you more room to work with. There are a few threads out there on this so you can use those as reference as well.If you have anymore questions just hit me up.

Damn that looks hot with the red piping!!! But you guys are driving me nuts! with your backwards headrest covers! If you look at your first pic...your front seat headrest cover...the thick seam at the bottom of the headrest that's facing the rear...should be facing the front!...I dunno...maybe it fit better backwards? ....sorry...my OCD is getting the best of me!

I just thought that the thick seem went towards the back so it doesn't show when you look at the seat head on. I did the same thing with my driver side headrest, you look at the front and the thick seam sticks out so I turned it around.

I know what you mean...but I think the seam was meant to make it look more finished. If it looks good to you...that's all that really matters!

FINALLY they are at the WO store in Honolulu now I just need to get my wife down there so they can install them. Looking forward to seeing them in a few months!



Less than stellar follow up service but with a 200+ group buy I guess it's bound to happen.

Got mine delivered yesterday. They were supposed to be here on Friday, but were delayed due to inclement weather. I have mixed emotions about these covers, so here's my little review.

Out of the box, they look great. The smell wasn't that bad to me, as some people reported. I installed them today, total time took 2.5 hours. I highly recommend taking the seats out, I don't really see how you could strap them in tightly without doing so.

I started with the front seats, but if I knew better I would have started with the back. They are easier to install, and it gives you a little practice stretching the material and all that.

The rear seats fit very snugly, I am super impressed. The front seats are a little looser, I was slightly disappointed. Not sure if it's just my OCD talking, because I do understand that something aftermarket that is as detailed as these can only fit so tightly. The inside of each of the front seats is pretty loose. I took off the plastic trim and tucked it, and it's still loose. You can't really tell since they sit so tight to the console, so not a big deal, but I was a little put off. Once everything was fit snug, you could tell that they just weren't contoured properly to the seat.

The slit on the side for my airbags leaves a little to be desired. The slit is super loose, and hangs open. I don't know if that is required for the airbag to deploy properly, but it looks a little stupid. One thing to be noted about this as well... If you look at the picture, you will see the overlap of fabric at the top and bottom of the slit- the front overlaps the rear, wouldn't you think it would be the other way around, because the airbag deploys forward?

Overall, I am happy with them. I didn't realize the amount of padding on the underside, and I was pleasantly surprised with how much more comfortable these seem than the OEM set up. I'm curious as to the levels of swamp ass I will get when it's 100 degrees out. The finished product came out pretty nice, I am defnitely a fan! Pics below.

You and me both. It hasn't warmed up too too much yet, but so far the days that it has been toasty, I've been pretty pleased. They definitely tend to warm up, but the swamp ass has yet to get me. The covers say 'keep you warm in the winter, cool in teh summer'...but I've heard a lot of guys say they got swamp ass pretty quick... Then again, I'll probably be eating my words come another month or two when its 100.

After reading all the posts I was dreading the install. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. I didn't have to remove a single bolt or screw, let alone a seat, front or back. Granted, a macaque would have been helpful but not necessary.
