    I need some help. I got some universal seat covers and I cant make the back work right cause the back doesnt fold down only the seat part folds up. Anyway does anybody know if the custom covers work better before I go spending the money. Thanks guys

    Wet Okole seat covers are awesome and should fit nice and snug. Haven't installed yet in my tundra but have in the wife's jeep. They are perfect.

    Installing a set of wet okoles right now and very displeased with the fit and finish - so much so that I'm considering taking it off and shipping it back. Not what I expected from all the great reviews and price.

    Anyone have any tip or tricks to make them fit better?

    2 main spots of concern are the lower to mid back (as tight as i can get it right now) and then the door side hip behind the plastic trim on the seat bottom. There are clips there that have to holes cut in the covers to allow a better fit.

    Thats the feeling I was looking forward to.

    Just finished driver side and....yeah. Maybe once they are all installed - I will be too tired to give a shit and just remember this experience for the next time and do more research before ordering another set.

    x2 on Clazzio. I had universal seat covers for a while. They sucked. Clazzio still looks great after 3 & 1/2 years.

    I am kind of confused on the option for seat size. None of them show the console but in some of the pictures it shows the console has a cover also. So I don't know which seat option that would be????

    I contacted them about this. There is only one option for the 14+ It's weird how it reads on their site. The "2212" product numbers is what you want for a crewmax. If I remember correctly it comes with the pieces for both bench and bucket. I had a couple left overs.

    They are kind of a bitch to put on but I love them and they are worth it. Everyone who's been in the truck has commented and few believe they are covers. I pulled 4 finger nails back and lost some sweat installing but in the end the fit and finish are great

    These were installed in my Tundra.http://www.precisionfit.com/ I actually thought the previous owner had the seats re-upholstered in leather. Faked me out at first. That good of a fit. I think mine run around $400.

    I purchased clazzio seat covers on my wife's jeep in July this year based on feedback on here (front seats only). They were tight going on but manageable. They are tight for a reason, to make them look like they are stock and not a cover. They really do look factory after installed. Wife loves them. Easy to clean.
    I would highly recommend clazzio if you are wanting leather.
    She previouly had wet okle. Decent covers but the lighter color in the middle started to look stained and we're getting worn in some areas. Think she had the wet okle covers for 3 years. Could have used them longer but the lighter color really want looking very good and she really wanted leather.
