    They fit a lot better than off the shelf type of seat covers, which is the only other types I've tried in my vehicles. They actually are quite tight when installing them, specially for the back piece.

    Some people have complained about the smell on them new, but I didn't really notice it too much. Then again, at the time, they probably sat in the truck for 2 weeks before I drove.

    As far as installing, I took my seats out to install them. After almost a year, I can tell I need to re-tighten some places on them, as its starting to slide away from the place it should be with all the ins and outs. Probably just need to reattach the velcro. Thats ok though, as I need to toss them in the wash anyway. (Drivers side is clean, but I guess I let dirty people in the truck or something)

    Anyway, overall, I'm very glad I got them (and the weathertech floor mats) due to being off road in the rain. They have saved me quite a bit in clean up. Its very nice not having to worry about either you or your passenger messing up your truck after tromping around in the mud.

    If your truck is a mall crawler, I think they're a bit expensive for not being used, unless you have kids, eat in the truck, etc.

    i put them in my truck and i love them! i didnt take the seats out and just took my time. took only an hour or so. i have already taken mine out, washed them, and put them back in. no big deal at all. the fitment is great! you will have a few wrinkles at first but as the website says they will work them self out after being installed for a while.

    I have some with the TRD emblem on them. Great buy! I left the seats in the truck and just tighten the straps took an hour or so but no biggie. I have had them for 5 or 6 years, still look like new. Just keep them clean and your good to go!

    sweet thanks guys! this helps a lot... my big issue is i got a tan interior... and i HATE tan haha... but black and red seat covers will look good with my truck... it already has a bit of black on the interior with the center console and my rubber floor mats i put in... i may look at getting some of those weather techs u were talkin about too... i love the way they fit perfectly... can you get them in black? cuz ive only seen grey and tan ones...
