    Anybody got any good suggestions for seat covers?
    I want something that looks nice-not like I went to the autoparts store and threw some covers on the seats.
    I have a blue interior and covers in this color are hard to find so I might have to get some other color (probably black). Any pics would be great!

    I am not a fan of the Wet Okole things. Had a pair on another vehicle, couldn't understand all the hype. Waste of a lot of money to me.

    Anyone got any good (non wet okole seat covers)?

    try the search function, there are a lot of threads asking the exact same question

    edit: asking about seat covers, there are a few recommendations that aren't wet okole, i for one like my wet okole covers

    I know there are some leather ones out there, i am sure someone will pop up with a recomendation for those

    Will try and search again. Everything I have seen is either about Wet Okoles or is for second generation Tacomas.

    If you want leather, katskinz (I think that's how it's spelled) seems to be a good bet. Install is a little more involved though.

    I guess I should clarify my needs. I don't want neoprene (which eliminates almost half of the seat cover related posts).
    I am probably looking for a set of sub-$200 seat covers.

    i got Marathon Seat Covers and love them. Held up great for the past 4 years. Cordura is waterproof and doesn't make your butt sweat like neoprene does. Mine are camo but they do offer solid colors like black, khaki, blue, grey, etc.

    Ok I think I found a good deal on some Endura covers from www.exactseatcovers.com through their ebay store. Unfortunately they are black (my interior is blue) but they only cost $80 shipped. I will post back when I get them installed.

    More than the wife knows!
    just got mine in from camotruckcovers.com they are made with the same material as marathons but include the headrest covers and console cover also in the price. They even have solid colors and are quilted unlike marathons. Its just another item that will have to wait to be put on my truck untill deer season lets up.
