    The TRD seat covers at http://www.tacomapartsstore.com/ look pretty decent. Not sure if the 2008 covers they list will fit 2010 TRD though. Anyone know?

    Also, have been looking at Wet Okole for years, since before I had my first Tacoma (06 Access Cab), but that's just a hefty price. Anyone have any input on the OEM v. Wet Okole, pros/cons?

    Thanks -

    I bought seat covers for my 2011 DC from GT Covers. I waited about 2 weeks to recieve the covers, because they are custom made to fit your seats. It takes a little time to install, but I highly recommend these seat covers.

    Care to elaborate? I've been looking into the TRD covers recently. Are they poor quality, bad fit, etc???

    I've had the Trd covers for four years...I barely take care of them and they are still in great shape. Fit is also good...a little tough getting them on first time though. They don't even really look like seat covers IMO, more like a factory option.

    ^^^^ Just noticed this

    I have the TRD neoprene. They are indeed a perfect fit, like it took quite a bit of effort to get them in the right place, but once you get em there they look amazing.

    My issue was with the Neoprene, its like a rubber, your ass and back don't breathe so you end up sweating on long drives. and in cold weather it's something awesome nice and cold to sit on when you first get into your vehical.

    so is the TRD neoprene different from the wildly popular WO in compostion, so that it does not breathe as well? or is this just the tradeoff with neoprene covers?

    Pics Marcel?

    I think it is an issue with all neoprene. I recently installed WO's and noticed they do make you sweat. I wasn't aware of this with neoprene. Winter is upon us now so this won't be a problem for now, but I suspect during hot summer days I may be removing them. They do look & fit nice, but what good is that if they make you sweat your ass off?

    I've had the TRD cover's on for a few years now and they fit like a glove. As stated they are a bit of a pita to put on. I've never had an issue sweating because of the material...I guess it's more of a dry heat here. One drawback of OEM TRD cover's is they don't make a set for the rear seats.
