    Hello All,

    Thinking about getting some Okole seatcovers. Looking at the many threads they seem like most are happy with them.

    For those that have had them in service one or more years, are they staying tight, not stretching out from heat or anything?

    I have an '09 so I need to get the ones with the side airbag slit. Are those still a snug fit?

    TIA

    Mine are still perfect. Fit even better than when new. They are 2.5 years old or so....The ones on my First gen looked just fine after 4+ years.

    09 with the side airbag slit, no issues, the flaps overlap each other so there's no ugly gap... very well built..
    Get them if you can afford them. There is no substitute for quality.

    One thing I am wondering about them - is it easy to whip 'em off and clean them?
    Can you throw them in the washer?

    I dont think you should throw them in the washer....I just use a garden hose, and a shop vac. while they are in the truck..

    You wash them in the truck. They're waterproof. That's actually what the care instructions say to do.

    Interesting. I will still probably take 'em out for washing. I may rethink that after doing it a time or two. But I will need to get them out to hose off dog puke.

    Thanks for all of the responses. I am sold. Now to put together funding and lock down on a color.

    Thanks again

    You really really wont' want to take them off to do that lol... It's kind of a pita to get them on as they're very tight (this is a good thing btw), and getting them aligned takes some time. I guess you'd get better the more practice you get but.. honestly washing them in the truck is no big deal. I haven't had mine that long, what 6mo but no complains thus far.

    Black exterior with charcoal center and half piping btw:

    It seems to be Wet O's closest matching combo for our trucks.

    Black/light grey looks really good too. It basically depends on whether you want the seating area to be slightly darker (charcoal) or slightly lighter (light grey) than the grey parts of the truck interior.

    Either one works well - I will say pictures of light grey WO's LOOK much lighter than they actually are because of the flash. They look almost white in pictures, not the case in reality:

    But hard to go wrong with either one :p

    I'm very interested in these and the group buy for them. I want ones like Kyouto42 posted. Except no TRD Off Road badge. What about the back seat? That is where I need these the most. Kids and a dog can wreck the seat in no time.

    I would be in on a group buy, but it would need to happen pretty soon. Camping and fishing season will be here before I know it.
