    I do a lot of mountain biking here in the PNW and about half the year I'm covered in mud after riding. I just got a new Tacoma and am shopping for some seat covers that can be quickly removed/installed to wash the mud off. How long does it take to intall a set of Wet Okoles? They sure look great, but guess they are not too easy to remove.

    Alternatively, does anyone have a recommendation for some cheap plastic ones that go on and off super fast and can be stuffed in the rear storage bins when not in use. I need to take things beyond the hefty bags I now use.

    Install isn't too bad, there's 3 straps that go under the seat. The top and bottom are separate pieces. The back is easy to remove has 2 clips that hook onto the bottom, the bottom section may be more tricky if you tucked the cover into the panels.

    Are we talking about 10 seconds or 10 minutes? Thanks,

    I've used bath towels on the seats since buying my truck new in July 2010...install & remove in seconds. I keep a few extras to cover the seat back when necessary.

    Removed, seats look factory new.

    OK, thanks... I love the look, but that is about 1 hour 29 minutes and 50 seconds too long for me.;)

    I got Wet Okole seat covers and while they are great, they're definitely not the type of covers you take on and off frequently to wash. That would be a major PITA. I took both front seats out to install more easily and the whole process probably took 1.5 hrs. Your probably better off using towels or garbage bags for seat covers when you're really muddy.
