    Alright guys, I did some searching and couldn't find anything like this...if it does exist, just axe this.

    I had seen about 500 different opinions on which color matched the 2nd Gen Tacoma interior (graphite), so here is a comparison.

    The only two colors that Wet Okole offers that are even close to matching is Light Gray (21) and Charcoal (11). Here are some pics using those two swatches, and a black one for contrast, in my 2011 graphite interior. They aren't the highest quality pics but they do a good enough job of comparing the two. I took two pics of each (for the most part), one with the flash on and one with the flash off - just to help give the "natural" look.

    After looking at the swatches in person, and in the pics, I have decided that I am going to go with the Light Gray (21) and black. The Charcoal (11) to me is just too dark - if I was going to go that dark, I would just go all black.

    I hope this helps some of you that, like me, were undecided on what color(s) to get.

    Cheers,

    No offense but was that taken with a cell phone camera? It's quite grainy and the colors seem way off. I think pics with as much natural sunlight as possible with a good color-corrected camera is what we need. I love the idea though!!

    Not a cell phone, but not a real fancy camera...I think it's an 8-10MP Canon.

    Either way, I think it at least gives a decent idea of the difference.

    You can also see disparate coloring in various batches, so while this isn't 100% accurate, I think between our sets of pics, people can get an idea of the colors.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread, but how much does a set of Wet Okole's generally cost for a 2nd Gen Double Cab?

    those look pretty damn good.

    are the WO's thick? I just read their site and it said it came "bonded with 1/2" of foam". I am a big guy and the Sport seats were already tight .. will these make it tighter?

    They are thicker than your standard seat covers, but I can't imagine some foam is going to cause real big issues for you.

    Maybe slightly noticeable difference at first but after a while they get worn in. I love mine! Just wish I would have went with a different color. But still love them :D

    These are pretty awesome seat covers! I got mine back in 2008 and the piping where I slide in out of the truck all the time is starting to wear out, just the piping not the actual cover. Also if it's a hot day these things are gonna make you sweat somthing fierce!

    But the're sweet, I was out hunting once with my new puppy Boxer, he was only about three mons old at the time. After I Parked my truck and getting ready to hike in, I let my dog roam for about 45 minutes.
    I came back about an hour and a half later, the poor guy just could not hold it anymore. There was doo doo and piss through out the eniter cab! Cealing, dash, steering wheel, every imaginable crack, EVERYWHERE! Thank god I had some weather tech floor mats and these seat covers! I hosed them off through them in the washer and presto! Good as new. No smell or any thing.

    The pictures are blurry because im trembling with anger..... I wanted to punt that dog into the woods.

    What color did you go with?

    I think those look better than the charcoal ones, they seem to be a better match to the factory color. I'll probably end up going with these. Thanks for the pic!

    As long as you use one of the stock logos that Wet Okole has in their catalogs, you get them for free (one on each of the front seats).

    Which part of that do you not like? The black on black or the white TRD logo?
