    Just got the new '09 with the in-seat side air bags...

    We wanted the graphite interior but could only get the tan interior and are already dreading the first stains.

    Does anyone know of a seat cover that won't interfere with the air bags built into the seats?

    Coming from a '94 Nissan truck with NO airbags/safety features (yes, it had a windshield and seat belts!), I'm loathe to put on seat covers that would keep the air bags from deploying if needed.

    Thanks.:spy:

    I think Wetokole (wetokole.com) makes seat covers that take in seat air bags into account.
    They are a bit spendy compared to average seat covers- but they are really nice- Plus you get alot more options.

    I bought tan sheepskin seat covers from Costco that are designed for side airbags. I think they were $40 each.

    We ordered seat covers from Toyota, but they weren't sure they worked with the seat side air bags...

    Thanks for the input.

    Got any pics of the covers? I'm in the market and looking for something of the sort. Seems the neoprene are the more common ones... any reason you went with those?

    i will try and post some pics during the day. Well like you said a lot of people use the neoprene ones, so i went with the water proof ones instead. Plus i like that it is all one color.

    I would like to see pics as well. How is the fit/quality with these covers? Price seems reasonable.

    fit is exact fit like it says. And i mean exact fit. its three pieces for all the seats. Head rest, back, and seat. I was sweating when i put these on! Only because it fits really snug. Pics coming soon (sorry my wife drives the truck more than me, and i don't have it today):(

    these are top quality, no doubt about it.

    I love them. Easy to maintain, comfortable, etc. I wouldnt own any other seat cover. :) Install is easy. Much more so, if you remove the front seats.
