Seat covers?

In 3 months my wife and I will be having twin girls. I currently have cloth seats in my truck and am worried about spills and stains, and stuff soaking in the padding underneath. I am wanting to get leather or faux leather installed. There are many options out there. Get it done at the dealership, custom shop, Clazzio seat covers, Coverking seat covers, and many more. In your experience what will be best? Is leather worth the extra $1000? What will hold up best? Where can I find the best prices?

I have 2 girls and a dog. The easiest to clean are the wet okole. They are waterproof and clean up nicely. Good Luck.

I have the Clazzio "faux leather" in my Tundra. Put them in myself and am very happy with how they turned out for the money. Have had plenty of experience wiping off kids drinks and food on some long road trips. They work great. Will take and post pics in the event you haven't seen any installed. Just let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

I like my Caltrend Neosupreme that are made of a stretchy rubber material that is the same waterproof stuff dive suits are made of (neoprene).

Mickw has pictures and reviews on this thread:

CalTrend Neo Supreme Seatcover Review

Also, if you want real leather with a custom fit, I recommend KatzKins. You would probably get the best deal through your Toyota dealer where you bought your truck. My father had them put on his Dodge 2500 and the fit can't be beat. The dealer took off his original seat covers and told him that he could sell them for almost as much as he got his Katzkins for. I think he paid around $750, but that is for a standard cab truck.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.

http://www.tundratalk.net/photopost/...=35692&cat=500Struggling rotating these images in the gallery. Wanted to get them up since I offered a couple of days ago. Will search for the "how to upload/edit photos section" next! Please let me know if you're able to get to the photos through the url.

Also, don't know if you have bucket seats or the console. The only fault with the design of the Clazzio's is the piece designed to cover the backrest of the folding middle seat/console. It is not a clean look and as you see I chose not to install it on mine. Not a big deal because I use it as a console and not a seat and it looks just fine without it.

I ordered from TRD Sparks. They are $269 now. Real leather inserts in the center panel take the price to $450. I went with the $269 vinyl and am happy with the look/ease to clean. I ordered grey because they were in stock. Custom color combinations look great but take a good while to receive.

BamaTrav, I see the pictures just fine. Those covers look sharp! Wish I knew about them with the leather before I ordered my CalTrend covers.

I watched ebay for a couple months and came across a new set of oem leather from this seller.. maryjon95 | eBay
I made a offer for $350 shipped and installed myself. Came out great and looks better than seat covers.

A question: how do seat covers interact with the in seat airbags?

Regarding the Clazzio's-they are supposedly designed and tested to not hinder deployment of the seat-located airbags.

Caltrend has an opening with a flap so the airbag can still pop open. Not sure about the others.
