    I ordered some GT-Seat coves and put them on today. I am not happy with the fit or the look. I have had them before and they have been fine. I think I am going to send them back. Does any one have thoughts on an other brand?

    I agree, go with Wet Okole. I bought three sets for our work/military F-250's when they were new. We abuse the seats pretty hard, getting in and out of them with wet suits on or muddy clothes a lot. The trucks are now four years old, but the seats still look like new (so do the covers after a washing). If they don't already make custom covers for your seats and you live anywhere near Orange County, CA, stop by and they will make them and install them on the spot for you. The only down side to some people is that they make your car smell like a wet suit for a few months and depending on your seat can be a pain in the but to put on. The custom fit ones fit really well though.

    I am waiting for some more information on the next compressor station that they are installing in the field, so I have a lull in my work. My brother finally flew home this weekend, and my wife is at work. So, I am taking a break to catch up with all my friends on here.

    It's nice to take a break! :D

    This is my third pair of GT covers and I am just not happy with the fit and the way they fasten on my sport seats. Not tight or snug as custom covers should be. They were fine on my other two trucks, just not this one. No, no pics. I called GT covers today and I am going to send them back. I still have a set for an 07'08' tundra that are 4 months old I can't sell.

    I go to ebay and never sold with two tries. I am just going to look for someone with that truck and see if they would like to buy. Or I might try Toyota nation.
