    About two weeks ago I received and installed my new Wet Okole seat covers. It took about 2 hours for me to install. Some words of advice: When you place your order expect to wait about 6 weeks to receive them. Once I did receive them, I did not receive any installation instructions so I looked online and found some info. I did not remove the seats as the online info suggests and didn't have any issues installing them. When you are installing them, do not pull too hard on the straps when you are tightening them or you will risk the straps tearing away from their seams. When you order them, make sure you call them back to confirm they received your order correctly, especially if you want any logos. Before ordering I called them to find out how to get TRD embroidered in the seat backs and they said to specify color and a logo code they provided in the comments section when you put your order in online. I did that and they claim they never received my request for TRD. Anyway, I still think they look great and they are very comfortable.

    Thanks. Those look nice. Are they the charcoal or the light gray?

    Ordering mine from the group buy coming up in a couple weeks. Way excited!

    They are the light gray. I was going to wait for the group buy but I have two kids so I wanted to get them ASAP.

    The seat covers for the backrests don't have straps. They have a flap that tucks thru between the seat bottom and backrest. If you look at the back of the front seats toward the floor you will see a curved hard plastic piece that blocks any access between the seat bottom and backrest. You have to release two hooks under the seat bottoms and fold the hard plastic piece upward and tuck it into the seatcover. That will enable you to have access between the backrest and seat bottom. For the back seats, my seat bottoms fold toward the front and provide for an easy install. For the backrests, I kept the seat bottoms folded up and then tilted the seat backs slightly forward and that provided just enough space to push the flap thru at the bottom with one hand and reach around behind the backrest and grab the flap with the other hand. Then I let the backrest fold forward and I was able to pull the flap up and attach it to the seat cover.

    Sorry for the delay in responding. If I remember correctly the site asks for truck info at the beginning of the process (make/model) and then provides choices for front seats and then directly below that it provides choices for back seats under each type (solid color, full piping, half piping, etc.).
