    I wouldn't call them an alternative to leather, they're different functions. Leather looks and feels nice, Wet Okoles are water proof and dirt proof. Great for people like me who transport wet and dirty retreivers in the back seat and don't want their stock interior destroyed. They're very well made, easy to install and hold up well to abuse.

    First of all, there are so many threads about them isn't not worth making another.

    But, they are great. Nice to have something water repellent and easy to clean when you're off-roading and hauling dogs around.

    Personally I don'tlike them. I installed them in my TRD Sport 2011 DCLB and I just don't like the way they look. Nearly impossible to attach all the straps..............may be for sale soon. black/grey with trd logo.

    Expensive, but look and fit like factory installed covers. High quality product that I like very much.

    They fit great for me; snug as a bug in a rug.

    As for getting them, I had compliments on people saying where I got those seats that match my truck. I told them they were seat covers and one guy didn't believe me, until I showed him. They take a bit when you first install them, but after that it wasn't as bad; when I took them off to clean them. If you pour water on them, it just slides right off!!

    My leathers are easy to clean, even with muddy dogs and bunch of random shit.

    Maybe you're trying to clip the straps into the wrong connectors?

    You can enlongate the straps as well.

    Love mine, Went from Coverkings to WOs and the WOs are a huge difference. Better build quality, better material, better fit (as good as it can get for a bench seater and that weird indent in the middle of the seat)

    Really dosen't get any better for Seat covers.

    Stock for now
    Like Quaker said, to get the straps attached I would adjust them big. The seat bottoms have the a loop sewn inside to pull. Get the cover pulled on as much as you can using the loop.
    This helps to get the majority of the cover set. Then I would add the straps. The side ones are a tad easier if you loosen up the plastic trim on the seat to feed through then it is snap the strap connector & pull.
    My finger tips were sore.
    Now the back seat on my DC tacoma was easy. Not so much on the Tundra. I had to take the back seat out to get the straps attached.
    Some folks do that with the tacomas but I never did.

    As far as OP question, I really like my W.O.'s. It is one of the first mods I do.

    Right now Autoanything has 15% and free ship which is almost as good as a group buy. The GB gets a console cover, care kit, more choices, logo choices.
    My only "complaint" is my last set UV faded a green tint in places even where the windows were tinted (like the rear slider). This was after about 4 yrs installed. The black areas did not fade. So I went with black on black this time out.
