    Not sure where to put this question, so I opted for the products section.

    My husband and I may start a family this coming year, and I'm trying to decide what to do about seat covers. Not sure if I want front and back or just front. Will back seat covers impede any future use of child carriers/seats? If so I'll just do front covers.

    Thanks!

    most decent brands are compatible. the TRD ones for the front seat work, i have those and the Wet Okole also will work. Im sure covercraft will as well

    it works perfectly for my little brother. It is an Eddie Bauer and is only $20


    Good luck!

    I have the ones mtnbiker pictured under the car seats. They work great for preventing wear and tear on your upholstery caused by the child car seats. They don't do anything for spills and stuff though. If you want bombproof, you need to buy wet okoles.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm thinking I may blow for front seat covers in the near future, and then down the road when I plan on having a little passenger in the back, just get the back seat covers then. Budget constraints being what they are, it's a little much for both rows at once, whichever brand I go with.

    I like the idea of the smaller cover, but I'm probably going to have this truck for the duration, so the full seat covers are probably what I'll end up getting.

    If you're going to have kids in your car on a regular basis, get some Wet Okole's or comparable seat covers. My daughter rarely eats in my truck, but somehow manages to still make messes with whatever she has with her.
