    Yeah I've been doing more searching and it seems most the decent ones run $250-$300 for a set... more than the $150 I was kinda hoping for. My truck is not pretty or fancy so it's hard to justify the dough. I'm not crazy about seeing some of the sides and back of the seats with these Greek ones, but if they seem durable and fit well for $130 I just may go for it. It's all riding on you JT!

    Ya if they are decent and fit snug for $130 then I think they will worth that, but will let you know as soon as shipper gives me some kind of update...:tumbleweed:expecting one hopefully by this mid-week.

    OP, your talking seat covers for a 1st gen correct? I'm waiting patiently for the next Wet Okole group buy but until then, I ended up snagging some cheap $25 black thin polyester seat covers to hold me over. I would consider these as the "best seat covers for the price" :D

    disclaimer: they are not durable or high quality and they cover the back pockets -a quick set with scissors can fix that- , BUT they are cheap and better than nothing while you look for the perfect covers. :)

    Here's what the covers look like on my build: HERE

    BigOly, those don't look terrible for $25. It's another option to consider...

    But still really interested to see how JT rates the Greeks... if the fit is good and they seem pretty durable I'm still leaning that way.

    Only picture I got before they sent it, gives you a quick idea of quality....so far so good. Need to see how the covers will fit now.

    I am new to this forum and I have a question about ordering Wet Okole covers. My truck is a 2006 Tacoma extended cab and I am going to buy a front set of charcoal covers. The passenger seat folds flat and each seat has a head rest. On the order page there appears to be two selections of the same category. Based on the pictures here, these look like high quality covers, much better than the cheapo covers I have now which have endured too many trips through fast food joints and need to go.
    Thanks, John

    Welcome to TW John, as for those wet okeole's i wish i could say i already bought a set and this is what you need to do, but cant....best bet would be to email them directly.

    My seat covers have side wings built into them and make the seats so much more comfy and stabilize the passengers in the center of the seat. Never seen anything like them before.

    Nah bro, not yet. Hopefully I have a slip when I get home after my shift tonight. They were sent on the 22nd with a two week delivery estimate. So must be getting close. As soon as I get them Ill update here, then post pictures some installing moments later.

    :cheers:
