    I missed out on the GB but I did end up ordering a set for my 2005 Access Cab. Got them today and installed. I took the cover to the center console completely off and installed the cover and then screwed everything back on. It held it all in place very well, does make the latch stick a bit with the extra material.

    I noticed a few other people metion that their covers had a bit of a hollow fit to them in the curved section of the seat. I experienced the same. Tried to pull it around back but it bunched up too much. Not at all a loose fit, I guess with some of the other problems people had with getting them onto their seats I was expecting a VERY tight fit intially. That wasn't the case. All went on perfectly. Only issues was getting the OEM rear flap clips off and the new seat clips on tight.

    All Black with Grey piping and Grey TRD

    I want to remove my front seats to install the new seat covers in my 2013 Tacoma. Does anyone know the torque specs for the bolts on re-install?

    I just cranked em back down to hand tight and then went about another 1/4 turn. Checked em a few weeks later and nothing loosened up. YMMV.

    I finally got my pics up from the last group buy. These are great. They make a huge difference in the comfort of the seat. I've spent a few hours in the seat both with and without them. They make it feel so much better to me and look better too. I now think I could have lived with the centers being red. Next time if these ever wear out. I guy I work with checked them out and he's ordering up a set for his new Camaro SS he picked up last week. Looks like the GB did it's work for WO. Thanks again Jonnie.

    Does anyone have trouble doing the full back seat fold down with these installed?

    Its a very tight fit in the current stock, so wondering if the extra fabric makes it impossible to complete the whole fold down (where you pull up the seats and then fold down the backs to show the flat plastic surface in a level position)

    If the fitment is good, I want in on the Fall GB - $100 is worth waiting a few months for :)

    I missed out on the Group Buy as well (ordered before I joined TW and realized there were all these awesome group buys.

    Anyway, got mine today and got them installed. I think they look great, and weren't too bad to install, took about 45 minutes.

    In true squirrel fashion I cut myself installing one front seat and bled on the rear. As soon as installed put the woman and the dog in the truck and took a 2 hr drive. After the weekend and the dog going in and out with dirty paws they look nice. Without even wiping them down the dirt flakes off and is almost unnoticeable. Feel like they already saved me some anxiety from the pooch possibly ruining the seats and that makes them totally worth it.[/QUOTE]

    Just an FYI, I would not post pictures of your offspring shooting birds on the internet...its a federal offense and can be prosecuted under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act...
    I'm a hunter myself but I think you should be teaching her to appreciate wildlife - not kill it for sport.

    Cheers

    $380 for custom seat covers and I'm the one lucky bastard who gets full piping...hence not refundable or returnable. Look at the side and tell me if you would recommend this product to ANYONE when it costs that much to improperly measure shit.

    So in summary I'll take the diciplinary action for cussing in the forums(I am a sailor) and say: FUCK WET OKOLE AND THEIR LOW STANDARDS. I'd rather donate cash to buy a cyanide laced pack of smokes then deal with their shitty product.

    Their quality control division should have booked a vacation on Malaysia 370.

    A. I assume you purchased these in the 2014 GB not the 2013.
    B. Did you even call W.O. and talk to them about the issue? clearly they weren't cut correctly and they should firmly stand by their product.
    C. I'm sure 99% of the customers on here are 100% satisfied with their product, sometimes there's a customer who isn't so fortunate.

    I'd recommend getting in contact with them, if you already have, what did they say? it looks to me like the piping has nothing to do with the way it was cut.

    Mine were very similar but yours do seem a little long there though. if you take the side panel off and run it underneath and then tighten the strap it should fix that issue. Also calling wet ok ole pipping or not I've seen them take care of anyone I've heard of that have an issue. Always sucks when a mistake is made but I'm sure a call to them will fix this.

    I appreciate everyone help and suggestions.

    I'm not able to return them according to my inventory sheet. I will look into tucking them under the plastic side covers, and I haven't called Wetokole yet because I've owned them 2 hours now and a second UPS truck showed up with my Black powder coated Toyota horns. Not a total loss of the day:)

    Again, make sure they tuck inside the plastic, use this thread to view other installation pictures of the same product.
    [​IMG]And if you're still not satisfied, give them a call.
