    Just like the title says.

    I'm thinking of a set for my rig, but Wet Okole is $$$$$ /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Am I wrong in thinking that over $200 is a little pricey for my rear bench? I'm thinking that if I did this, I wouldn't spend more than $125-$150. Thoughts?

    Who would LIKE to have them but why don't you have them?

    Are there any OTHER companies that make them? I'm hopeing that if I can find SOMEONE that can do them, it will be reasonable.

    Does anyone else want them at a decent price. I may have some leads on a few other places, but I don't think they make Blazer specific stuff. f I find a place, who would be interested. I'm not trying to do the group buy thing, just curious if it's just me...


    Who would be interested? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Any info/help is GREATLY appreciated..../forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have them in my 2001 truck, and I would not buy them again.

    1. They stink like a new wetsuit for the first few months.

    2. The rip pretty easily.

    3. Dog hair sticks to them like crazy. I originally bought them to cover the factory velour seat covers because of the dog hair. That velour that GM uses in the new trucks is a fawking magnet for dog hair. You can hardly get the hair off them even working them over with a good shop vac. The Wet Okole seat covers are almost as bad.

    4. They stain pretty easily, and are not real easy to clean. I even bought black/dark gray, but they look pretty bad already.

    I would look for some other kind of seat cover.

    I guess they would be OK for an open top truck for weather protection, but they do soak up water. I am not sure if they would totally protect the seats from getting wet.

    Nothing beats good old vinyl for weather protection and ease of cleaning.

    My truck is open top most of the time, and in Oklahoma, you NEVER know when it's going to rain.

    I have vinyl, but I also tend to wear shorts one in a while and have lost a precious amount of skin FROM the vinyl. That's why I'm hunting for something better. I don't want cloth, for the above reasons.

    Thanks for the input. Good to hear real life experience /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I looked at them too, but that is way too much money.

    How much WOULD you pay? I'm thinking that I really want/need these things.

    Like I said before, I've got a line on a company that is "thinking" about making these, providing there is some interest. Their pricing so far seems to be a LOT less than Wet Okole's

    Thoughts?

    If they were high quality I would say around $100. I paid $30 for my two front ones. They aren't waterproof, but they are good seat covers /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
