    So I got a killer deal used set of GT neoprene seat covers off Craigslist this morning. I got back and got kinda confused. I've only tried the passenger seat so far but I don't understand how the pieces wrap around the seats. And I'm kinda of confused which piece goes to which seat.

    How do you put them on?
    And is the back of the passengers seat not solid like the drivers seat is?

    Thats what I thought when I read the ad for them. The company is called GT Covers. I googled "GT seat covers tacoma" and nothing came up. Took me a while to find anything on them. They offer these at Toyota dealerships I guess.

    I dont have pics of the ones I just bought. These are pics of a set somebody was trying to sell on here. Mine are the same but all black. I have the back seats too.

    Does anybody have these? I've got them all on but my problem is the passengers seat. Besides the fact that it has a huge void in the back of it unlike the drives seat, the seat bottom is missing any velcro to connect the seat top, and it seems like it's too small. I think the passengers seat I got isn't made for my truck or something.

    I dont think those covers are for a TRD model. I think those fit the standard seats.

    Doesn't the back of our passenger front seats have a plastic tray-like thing on them? Maby thats the "void" you're talking about.

    I don't have any plastic tray things. The back of both of my seats have pockets. The drivers seat pocket is completely covered (solid seat cover) and has a neoprene pocket sewed in. The passenger cover I have looks more like the back seat covers. The enire back of it is open exposing the seat pocket.

    I think the guy I got it from "forgot" to tell me that it's not the right cover or something. That one don't look like it's made for the seat.

    Removed the steering column surround and the keyed ignition.
    If they don't fit, you could always sell them here/elsewhere...post a link to the manufacturer's website on your ad (they look like quality covers).

    Most likely because of what chris4x4 said. Here is a pic of my passenger SR5 seat.
