    I just Finished (almost) installing my new seat covers. I could find no feasable way to get the front-upper cover to wrap around the seat back bottom and velcro to the back of the cover?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Which seat? I took my seats out of the truck to install them. Saves you some time, and makes installing the covers much easier. :)

    It is both front seats- the upper portion of the cover. The seat back seems one piece and I could not see how it is possible velcro the front to the back?

    Might be different depending on the seats you have, but on mine...the on passenger seat you had to stuff the front flap between the crack in the seat (where the seat folds forward) and tug it through then it will velcro to the back piece, it's a snug fit. On the drivers seat you have to unhook the flap on the back of the seat that goes underneath the seat and fold it up then pull the cover through the crack, you will leave the flap of the seat folded up and put the cover over it and attach it to the under side of the seat...confusing huh :confused:... over on ToyotaNation there is a thread with pics and install tips..

    Unattach the factory "flap" bungee/hooks from under the seat and then fold the "flaps" up (I used two small pieces of duct tape stuck to the inside of the seat pouches, otherwise they kinda stick out to much under the covers), then you can slide the covers over and wrap around the seat crack. Thats how wet okole said they were designed to install.
