    I do wish I had gotten charcoal, It most likely would have matched the interior better. It is too late to change that though. Another bad thing about the light gray suckers is that they're dirt magnets!
    Will the covers "settle" in, because they form like a pocket of air underneath them if your not sitting on them.

    That's light grey with charcoal piping, right? I got the exact same with the Tacoma logo too for my '04. I was torn between going with light grey or charcoal so I had them send swatches. The light grey seemed to match well with the current seat fabric and the charcoal matched the dash and carpet. Mine haven't arrived yet so I'll have to wait and see if I made the right choice.

    Yours look good though. The light grey almost looks like a nice leather.

    I'm kind of in the same boat. The light gray looks good but those sections of my seats do attract stains easily. Like I mentioned earlier - they all come out without too much trouble but they do get dirty quickly. GLW Seats.

    Here are mine. I may need to snug them up a little bit, I did not take the seats out to install and probably will at some point in order to get the fit perfect.

    Here is a comparison pic with the driver's side installed and passenger side and rear stock.

    Here is the back. I did not install the backrests. I'm not sure if they sent me the right size nor am I too sure how to install if it is the right piece. I think I'm happy as they are currently.

    I did BHLM afterwards because it goes with the Wet Okoles so well.

    Your covers came out nice...but FYI...I think you may have all of your headrest covers on backwards. If you take a look at the cover, the thick finished seam is what should show from the front of the headrest, from your pics...it looks like they all show on the back side of your headrests, including the rear...except for your driver's headrest that's on backwards!:D

    Another tip...the holes where the headrests insert into the seat, tuck the edges of the Wet Okole fabric under the little plastic pieces that the headrest spikes insert into. Fiddle with it a little, you'll see what I mean. It'll look more finished.

    Sweet! I had to drop out of this one, because of well...billies, pro comp 7031's and new grabbers. Will you be doing the next one OP? Anywhere we can sub now for easier reference?? ;)

    P.S: Those black and green covers look sick!

    Only the driver side headrest is on backwards...oops, lol. As for the head rest slots, one on the backseat head rest came off when I took off the headrest. Was probably like that when I got it since it was used, but I keep all of my headrest down all the way so it doesn't bother me much. Thanks for the tips though! I may take the back seats out again and tug on them some more.

    Thanks, yeah it was very easy. I think it took me 20min per arm rest total.

    Drill out the arm rest. Pull off the oem material cut fabric to match. 3m spray adhesive. Work material from the center out (very easy to work with compared to vinyl). Screw arm rest back in with washer and short metal screws.

    Right on! I know there is a member on here who tried and it cost him $1600 because it ruined his door panels, just don't wanna make that mistake lol. Did you leave any stock fabric on the armrest or just take it down to the plastic? You should make a write up :D

    I should've snapped pics along the way. I took it down to the plastic, sprayed the plastic with adhesive and the material waited five minutes and wrapped. The only way to ruin them would be to over drill the armrest, or use too long of a screw that will pop out the other side.

    The seats are sweet BTW. Truck looks so much better.
