    Not really sure where to put this. I'm looking for seat covers for my 17 crew max. Not really wanting leather or neoprene. I had cordura in my Tacoma but can't remember what brand they were. I'm wanting a custom fit, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I live only a couple of miles away from GT Covers. Everything is custom made. My Precision Fit seat covers are nice as hell but the drivers side has some burn holes that were there when I got my Tundra. And tan color.Needs to be replaced before hunting season. Great quality. Not cheap but doesn't break the bank either. GT Covers.com

    I may call them now and get a quote on a Camo set. Thanks for reminding me......

    I just called GT. I basically explained what I previouly posted. That I need some new covers and that their product has not come up ever on our forum. I explained our forum is ad free but we do have approved vendors that occasionally give us group buys and\or forum discounts and reviews, good or bad..... Any hoo...Monday after work I'm meeting with Chris, the guy to discuss this with. I'll be the first guinea pig on this.

    In the mean time...check out GT Covers.com

    These are the covers I had in my Tacoma for over 8 yrs. I think I'm going with these again. The endura covers.

    Cool. I literally drive by their mfr plant every day. Occasionally when I drive buy they will have special sale. Never had a reason to take advantage until now.

    It would be nice to get a discount or something. I'll be glad to give an unbiased review.

    My Precision Fits were already in my truck. Great fit and great fake looking leather. I'm not into leather unless it's with Heather...:rolleyes:. I do want something very durable. Gt's will be self install. Going to ask to get a tour thru the place.

    I've found that most mfrs nowadays make seat covers air bag compliant.

    It's really interesting that this thread exists because I have been researching seat covers for the past few days and was almost set on Clazzio before seeing this thread and your posts.

    I'm going to hold off on ordering to see if you can get a group buy going. If you can get something rolling I'm almost certainly going to participate.

    I want to see up close how good the GT's actually are. I may have time today to go over to GT. Had to work late yesterday.

    Dropped by GT Covers. Going back at 4 to discuss possible GB with the person that can make it happen. I did get a chance to see several display seats made with various cover material. Definitely custom fit. Maybe I can get a walk through in the manufacturing floor. Definitely Colorado made.

    Just got back from GT Covers. Great product. I really like my "Precision Fit" covers but need to convert to camo. Turns out my P Fit covers are made right here at GT. Wow!! Didn't know that. I talked with Chris about GB and T.com discount. I relayed info to @Sean. Hang tight. Let's see how this plays out. The quality is top notch. Stitching, materials, finish is what you would expect from a hand made quality product made right here in Aurora, CO. I've seen it first hand. Once again...check out GT Covers.com

    I'm about 2 buy a set. I'm leaning toward the GT's, like I said before I had the same covers in my Tacoma for over 8 yrs and they never faded or lost there form. My factory seats looked brand new when I traded it. But I'm still on the fence because I'm thinking I would like some leathers either Clazzio or Katskinz. I can get a deal on the Katskinz and they wouldn't be that much more expensive than the GT's. But a group buy for the GT's would be nice. Decisions decisions.

    Hang on until tomorrow. Too late now for me to take a pic of my Precision Fits...If you want to check out my build thread... I know there's pics of the seat covers early on the thread.

    It's all about the material you want your seat covers to be made of. Changes pricing quite a bit. Me...I like the Camo Endura cover. Of course leather will cost more. GT also uses the same OEM cloth seat material if you want that. A lot of us here are on a budget and want best bang for the buck. I don't want to buy cheap that looks legit. I want legit quality and get a good deal. Saves you some scratch to spend on the significant other so you can justify more money on your Tundra. Got to play it both ways. Just sayin

    Yeah I don't have to be sold on the quality of the GT covers as I've had them before and they are excellent. I had the Endura in grey and black. The price for those for my CM are $476. I can get the Katskinz leathers for about $550. Not really that much of a difference. Maybe if we could get a group buy or a discount that would be great. Just not sure if I want the leather or the Endura. Wife has factory leather which is nice but it's hot in the summer. And without putting seat heaters in it's cold in the winter.
