My dogs are beginning to reek havoc on my leather seats in my 97. No rips yet, but I want to avoid that situation!!!

I am looking to get some of the endura type covers for all three rows as they tend to jump around a bit. Weimaraner's don't sit still long, and are large enough to do some damage!! (2 of them: she is 65# and he is 85#).

It seems that www.gtcovers.com and www.great-covers.com are two very reasonable companies to choose from. The prices are the same and the material looks to be the same.

Can anyone give me pros/cons for either of these? Is it worth the money ($450 for the whole truck)? Do they stay in place or slide around a bit? How hot are they to sit on?

Thanks for the input!!

WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!! It is the SAME company! The sites look very different (gtcovers looks better IMO), but the phone numbers and copyrights are the same.

:doh:

Ok, so ignore the one versus the other question. How about fit, sliding and heat questions??

I have them in my 4runner, they are the best seat cover I have ever seen. They are sold locally by the Toyota dealer, so I was able to order them without shipping charges and it is the one thing they sell that they don't markup much. They are good quality fabric, and fit the seat perfectly, there is one piece for the seat bottom and one for the back, it looks pretty much like a factory seat, most people wouldn't know it is a seat cover.

They stay in place great when used on a cloth seat, not sure how it will do over leather, but they are the most custom tailored cut I have seen for a seat cover, so they will probably do as good or better than anything else out there. They are just like a cloth seat as far as heat is concerned, comfortable in heat or cold.

Yup, you are right GT and Great Covers are the same, they may even have another name...

The fabric is very good, but the fit on my front 80 seats is not very good. Does someone have a picture of front '93 or '94 seats with GT covers?

Stress, they are sending me some sample swatches I requested last week. I'll bring them over when we do the work to your truck. :cool:

Many moons ago (~2 years) I posted pics of my 2nd row seats with fabric covers from Great Covers. Let me know if you would like to see the 2nd row pics and can't find them with a search.

Swatches won't tell you how they fit ;).
Very true but with swatches I can figure out which fabric has the best bling per buck :grinpimp: Others have already commented on the fit.

I have had covers from Great-Covers in my 96 LX450 for 2 years and they still look new. They survived the terrible 2s of my daughter and look great now with my 9 month old son.

They fit perfectly and take a bit of effort to install. The fronts have pockets on the front, back and sides.
