Yes, there's a youtube video showing this. Simplifies the process SIGNIFICANTLY. Works great.

Hey man, I got them in mine. If you want to come to Dedham and take a look, you're more than welcome. Maybe I'll have your former top put on by then. I will be away for the next three weekends, but maybe we can figure out something during the week.

Dueeast I'm slowly putting mine on today. No instructions, but after looking and some figuring, you really don't need them. I forget who, but a previous poster recommended covering the velcro with masking tape. (Great idea)!. My only criticism so far is the headrest velcro flaps, etc. are a little cheesy.
IMPORTANT ! Make sure you got the stuff out of the factory seat back pockets before you start the seat cover installation

Coyote is not a perfect match but it is close enough. I am pretty picky when it comes to aesthetics and it works for me.

Sounds like Trek Armor was to hear back from the testing lab on the 27-28 th of March and provided ambiguous responses as to if this will even come to market like "we hope so." They say they are pretty confident but I don't want to get my hopes up just to hear the lab provided bad news or something.

My other concern will be what airbag compatibility will do to price. If fronts go to $350 or something I don't think I can swing over $650 for seat covers. I could easily see why they would bump price due to r&d costs but I have a hard time with $550 for seat covers let alone $650 or more.

Me too. I did some searching and supposedly the olive is a very close match to Commando. I'll post pics in a couple weeks.

Yeah, I got those strings, too. I was able to yank them pretty tight on the front seats and tied them in a knot. Pointless when I think about what I did. I didn't think about cutting the front to make the Velcro reach. I'll have to give that a shot. Had to unbolt the seatbelts on the 4 door. Looks good in the end, though.

Good luck!
I had to trim mine. Made the hole a little larger to get the Velcro to reach.

Nice color combo. I went with all black and now starting to wish I didn't change it up. Check out YouTube videos. That whole bag trick was a lifesaver. I'm interested to know how the bottoms of your covers ended up on your back seats, if you were able to get them to tuck under. Also, if your front driver seat fit well around the seat adjustment arms.

Good luck!

jeeprjoe Installed these a few weeks ago. Worth every penny, look great. Rear installation was a pain, couldn't get the seatbelt unbolted and needed a larger impact wrench. Totally worth it, though. Mitch was very helpful. Was interested in different colored stitching. Money wasn't an option but he basically talked me out of it. 100% recommend these.
03-27-2014 11:49 PM
Doctorsti Last I heard they were hoping to hear back from some testing lab with results today or tomorrow. I assume results on prototypes with the appropriate thread and stitch pattern.

Lycian Lack of side air bag compatibility is the only thing hold me back from a set of Trek Armors. It's one of the last big (expensive) mods I want to do.

Loki9 My fiancé got me Trek Armor for a BD gift, I love them. Mine are Coyote/camo, they are so nice, fit is perfect, couldn't have done it any better.

They took a while longer because of being special order with color, but well worth the wait.

I think when you are dealing with a smaller company, more detailing, it's worth all the wait for the quality in return.
