    Look great J88logue, thanks again for the group buy! RealTree AP with Gun tote drivers side...

    Was pretty painful to install the 1st seat, however, 2nd front seat and back seats were a breeze thanks to help from a friend. Kinda feel like air is trapped in the back rest on the front seats but I assume thats normal/typical. Dog loves them, I love them, and they're just what I wanted.

    I've never owned a set, only see them in other folks' rides. I can't wait, though I'm a bit nervous about the install! I'm in the same boat as you, as long as they prevent the dog from tearing up my seats anymore...worth it.

    May want to search through the buy/sell/trade threads if you haven't already. I may be mistaken, but I believe I saw a few sets for sale recently...

    EDIT: Also, you may get lucky with a 'used' set if one of the guys from the group buy went a different route this year. If not, I would imagine a set would surface in the next few months..

    Just finished installing mine. Took about three hours total. Don't think I have enough posts to be able to post pics yet.

    Yeah I was surprised at the amount of time that passed. I hope that the Husky floor mats I ordered don't give me any trouble.

    When I ordered the fronts from the last GB it took me 2 hours to install them, that includes removing and reinstalling the seats so about an hour each. Hope the rears are just as easy.

    Those look great with the red center. I almost ordered mine that way(20 years ago I would have). I got the e-mail today that mine are on the way. I've been waiting since Nov to put a set on. I'll post pics when I get them on.

    Thanks again Jonnie for setting this up.

    Agreed, it's just a little bit, but I definitely notice the difference.

    I'm sure it will flatten out shortly with your fat arse.

    Ha, totally cut my finger on the install too :mad: I can't seem to do anything on the truck without some sort of blood drawn though....:rolleyes:

    Anyway, installed! :D Kinda boring, but I don't wanna overdo the blue ya know. Was gonna get the piping but looked like A LOT of people have said it didn't wear too well over time.... Anyway, I am happy with it :)

    [​IMG]

    Ended up taking the seats out to install. After an attempt to avoid removing the seats, I broke down and did it. Much easier. The fit is pretty good. A couple of spots with extra fabric that it's but quite 100% perfect. Probably will get better over time as the fabric "breaks in". The neoprene is pretty thick.

    My roommate saw them and thinks they look awesome :D I am just super OCD about my truck and anything that I work on and notice little things.

    I was out working for about two hours... but I also cleaned up my bedsides and put some stickers on in that time too. Probably about an hour on the seats.

    Overall, very happy and the seats are nice n waterproof... just in time for huge-ass puddle season here in AK :D
