    Hello i'm a noob here and not sure if this topic has been brought up before, and i appoligize if it has! Basically i am in the market for some quality seat covers. i would like to know your personal opinions on wich covers are better wet okole or the trd covers. price isnt a real big deal as i would like to get the best covers. please tell me about fit an finish, ease of installation, and overall how the product holds up in real world situations! i drive my truck to work and usually have diesel and oil on me on the trip home and would like some covers that i can take off and throw in the washer! thanks

    enough to get me there
    You get what you pay for. The Wet Okole are by far the best out there. The material quality is excellent, and the workmanship is excellent as well. They are made to order. Adds little more cushion to your seats to. I am local to their store/factory, and I just had them install it for me for free, seemed like a lot work. Two guys worked on my truck at the same time. They did it under a half hour. Given, they do this day in day out, but if I were to to do what they did, probably take me two hours or more. Worth every penny. You should wait for a group buy. Get a better deal.

    As far as the TRD ones, I think they are just average. My buddy has a set on his 05 Tacoma. They are lot easier to install than the Wet Okole, and that's because they don't encompass the whole seat like the Wet Okole do. They are more like slip ons. And they don't fit as snug. Snug is key, if you want something that looks good and is comfortable.

    I did not like the big black rubber matting running down the middle of the TRD seat covers @ 1st,but the 1st time I sat in my truck w/a screwdriver in my back pocket I was sure glad I bought the Toyota seat covers...............................:cool:

    Oh ok, before i got my seat covers my seats would get muddy and dirty all the time, with the seat covers i just take them out and wash them off with the water hose and let them dry and put them right back in

    I seriously considered the TRD covers but my understanding is that they don't make them for the rear of the DC....That was a deal breaker for me. Love my WO's btw.

    X2. My WE's have been awsome. Its the first mod I do to any truck I have. They resist punctures, are water proof, and dont hold any smells.
