    Ive already put in for the group buy feeler...and am fairly certain that Im going to go through with it...but I do go back and forth. Its a decent chunk of change that I could be putting towards something else, so Im trying to determine how valuable you owners have found them to be.

    Id very much appreciate any reviews, pictures, etc. Yes Ive gone through all the current threads ;) It seems people really love 'em, but they never say why! Do they feel different? More comfortable? Just look better? Piece of mind towards protecting the stock interior? etc.

    Thanks!

    you definitely feel the difference in comfort ability. with the stock material it was good enough to hug the body especially on long road trips...but because wet okoles use neoprene...its like using temperpedic but for cars and truck...because its water proof the neoprene tends to fit to your body even better then before but once you get off the seat the neoprene moves back to its original fitting...

    nobody likes mildewy and stained seats...need I say any more about wet okole's using neoprene...its like a wetsuit/condom for your seats...fits perfectly while keeping them dry...

    they look awesome as well...especially in person...there are countless color combos you can put together for your liking...

    good luck on your choice and keep us posted to what you chose to get...WET OKOLES FTMFW!!!

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    When I got mine, I definitely did not expect them to make the seats more comfortable but they do. And they are completely waterproof. And they have keep me from staining the stock seats already. And they look good.

    So in short, If you got the moneys, get them.

    They do add a pretty nice cushion to the seats...They hold a bit more heat than the stock seats, but it's not that bad. The look shit hot. They protect the seats from water, dirt, whatever, They look shit hot.

    and did I mention they look shit hot??

    If it's the difference between buying food or paying bills and WOs...It's obvious. But if it's one mod over another...You gotta decide which one means more to you.

    i enjoy not having to care how dirty me or the dog are when we get in... but somehow i got a tear in the passenger front... might have been with the dog while trailing or the laptop foot and idk pushing it... well the cover has a peeled back corner and the neaoprene is exposed

    I love that I can replace them if they messed up and it's not as expensive as getting the OEM seats redone. I love the material and how it's waterproof. I love the fit and the fact that you sit an inch higher, it really helps out.
    The quality is awesome and it looks great!

    theyre not expensive. You pay $500 and you can sell them for $200 when you get rid of the taco because they are always in demand so reallllly you're only losing $300 AND saving your stock seats

    What part of them makes you sit higher? I'm already struggling to see stoplights, and this comment makes me skeptical.

    I had a set of Wet Okole's on my last taco & they where great. I have these on my truck now, they are neoprene also, from the stealership for $200. Just another option.

    Exactly.
    This the 3rd truck I have had them in and everytime I sell the truck outright I let the buyer know the seat covers will cost em extra or they stay with me to sell outright. Not one of them have balked at this.

    These covers are comfy, functional, & look good.
