    Got mine installed this last friday. Ordered on 12March and recieved 05April. This is my second set, the first set I had was on my old 08 SR5. Thanks to the OP again for setting this up!

    I don't have pictures of the front put back in the truck... just had to go drive with them in and forgot to snap pics. They fit like a glove! Install took about an hour by myslelf. I will say that I will be calling Wet Okole to let them know of a slight design flaw. On the front seats where the bottom two flaps are suppsed to velcrow together, it's impossible to do on my seats because of the carpet covered plastic flap attached to the seat on the very bottom back. What I did was tightly tuck the front flap of the seat cover between the seat back cousion and bottom cousion and then velcrowed the back flap of the seat cover to the carpet covering that curved plastic flap. I think I had that same issue on my old covers as well. Anyone else have that issue??

    Another thing I am going to recommend to Wet Okole is that on the seat cover bottoms they install 2 tightening straps to go left and right instead of one. This goes for the back bottoms and the fronts. The one strap seems to hold it OK but on my back driver side the cover sticks out a little and I feel a second strap would fix that. Hope that makes sense...

    Other than those 2 very small issues I am very happy with the quality and fit of these covers once again! The seat warmers work great as well and I have to agree as said before that all 3 settings feel the same. I will have to look into hard wiring them soon and placing switches in the blanks by the A-TRAC switch. Now just to wait for that new neoprene smell to wear off.....

    Got my tracking #. Covers are supposed to be here Friday. So if I am understanding this right, it is much easier and quicker to take the seats out to do the install. Is it the same for the standard buckets? Thx

    Oh yeah, It is way easier to take the seats out. They are light and don't take long to remove.

    I carried mine in the house and worked on them.

    Ordered 3/19, arrived 4/8. Included a care kit AND a console cover for free. Seat heaters, back pockets, and 2 sets of headrest covers were ordered. Installed in truck this morning in 35 minutes, fit is perfect. Very happy with the whole package, and seat heaters came just in time, it's 15* here...

    Guess that makes me feel a little better then. Seeing people that ordered after me and already got theirs, making me anxious and I won't even be able to see them for another 8 months!

    Sorry I missed this thread and posted my pics on the group buy thread, but I'll repost them here. My covers were ordered the day after the GB closed and came in on 03/30. I installed them two days ago. The installation took about an hour only because I was being careful not to get my dirty hands to smudge the covers.

    Anyway, I think they look great and rejuvenate the look of the cab:
