    I recently purchased my truck from a construction company, I am slowly fixing it up into an daily driver. The carpet on the inside along with the seat skins both need to be replaced. Any ideas of where I can get a good deal on these items.

    Its tan on tan inside, any feedback is much appriciated...

    The only place online I have seen replacement carpet is JC Whitney. Its not OEM but its vehicle specific. (At least it was when I got it for my 98 taco about 5 years ago).
    I think I would just get some Wet Okoles for the seats. If not that then get some junkyard seats. I have seen custom leather seat jobs posted here before.
    Try to search-search-search.

    Thanks for the response, the seat covers are they good? I noticed they were a little expensive. I'm not against getting them if they are worth it.


    Do they fit well?

    My dealer sells the seat covers that match the existing seats.
    It's a Toyota part.
    Most any dealer should be able to get them for you.
    I'm getting a set but don't remember the price. Reasonable if I remember right.

    They have fabric samples at my parts counter.
    I was able to match my fabric with the seat covers.
    I just took my headrest to the parts counter and find the matching fabric.

    I want to protect my seats. Nothing wrong now but I want some protection.
    I can't find any 60/40 seat covers for small trucks in the stores.
    Toyota has them......

    The customer service at W.O is really great.
    When you reach someone on the phone they are very nice.
    It takes a little bit of time for them to make the covers but really worth it.
    The material is waterproof so you can wash them off right on the seat. On a reasonably sunny day they will dry of in about 15 minutes.
    I did buy a bottle of seat shampoo and conditioner from somewhere and it makes a big difference to maintain them.
    Give us a buzz when you get them and we'll help you put em on, too.
