    I clicked where it said enlarge picture and it just showed me the same damn pic in the ad. If they are anything like the TRD covers toyota sells, their is no need to remove the seat. Come to think of it, of all the seat covers I have installed in the past 20 yrs or so, I have never had to remove the seat. It seems to me that a seat cover is usually a user friendly product...meaning easy installation with little or no hassel at all!

    I just did the Toyota TRD neoprene seat covers.

    The trick is to put the tube in between the seat and back FIRST, then do the back then bottom.

    If you follow the instructions that say back, tube, bottom, then you've got a struggle ahead.

    dsds..no tube with these. I got the back on(driver side) and holy s**t it was tight going, and looks good. They are apparently "custom made" The problerm is the seat and some velcro straps that need to go between the cushion and the plastic along the bottom, these fasten side to side, as well there are straps that buckle front to rear in a fashion like a motorcycle helmet strap...hence removing the seat or tipping it forward. I dunno...maybe I'm missing something, but yeah I agree seat covers are usually user friendly.

    I think it's because things are always tighter in NS. My seat covers were very tight too. A real struggle that left my hands and fingers in pain.Maybe you can email the maker for help?

    Will it make it any easier to remove the plastic around the bottom of the seat?...Well come to think of it, when had to remove the plastic around my seats in my 2000 prerunner, I had to remove the seat. Well for all of you that have removed toyota seats b4 its fairly simple. 4 bolts and maybe the wire that connects to the seatbelt chime!....Looks like from what you discribed above about the velcro straps that you may have to remove the seats. Is their any way to install a "S" hook on the end of that strap and hook it underneith the seat some where???

    Just wondering if you or anyone has installed the part #T918-N16 for the rear 60/40 bench? How does it look? Material quality, comfort, value, etc.?

    I am thinking about the TRD covers for the front and the T918-N16 for the rear bench.

    Any input would be much appreciated.
