    Default Ordered those smittybilt GEAR seats.

    I wanted the rear seat cover by smittybilt, but I think that having to slide in and out of the front seats is going to make them rip sooner or later. I ordered two of the front seat covers last night. This should work out good for the rides because it will allow us to store more stuff within reach without having to have my wife climb through the seats to reach some of the stuff in the back for the kid.

    Do they fit nice a snug to the seat or do they move around when you get in and out. I have a set of camo covers in my tacoma and the drivers side looks deformed where I get in and out of it alot.

    i have them in mine and like them. sort of. The concept is great,the quality in my opinion is not.Right out of the box,the stitching on one of them was already ripped,luckily I can fix it myself. The other thing u will find with these is that u have to find a way to "secure" the portion of the cover that sits at the "hinge" of the seat.Most of your hi quality covers have a "tab" that passes from the front of the seat and thru the hinge going to the back to secure the cover "underneath" the bottom of the seat henceforth,keeping the cover from "ballooning" when riding down the road with the doors off.I cured this by wrapping a strand of nylon rope around the cover at the hinge portion of the seat and secured it at the back of the seat. Like I said,GREAT concept,just could have used a lil more "real world" inginuity. So if u are thrifty enuff,they are kinda cool. lil overpriced for the "chinese" quality u will b getting tho I think.
