    I'm looking to pick up a set of the factory TRD seat covers for my '07 and wondered if anyone had any experience installing these things? Is it an easy thing to do or does it involve disassembling everything to pull them on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I got them.. and love them!!! especially cause I have my white pitbull in my truck sometimes and it's easier cleaning the hair off the rubber part... they were really easy to install and haven't had a problem


    however my mom got the same set on her 07 taco... and some reason hers keep sliding out of the socket... she had to tight a string to it and shimmy rig it ... (shrugs)

    I had them and got rid of them. I liked the look and the feel but during the summer they didnt breathe.

    I didn't really have a problem in the summer... (shrugs)

    when I lived in CA... and now that I live in NM... where the summers are hotter... maybe if I was wearing shorts it would sting a bit at first.. lol...

    but taco's have SWEET A/C's that kick in pronto! :)
