I have full OD on my copperhead. It's a true OD. The color in the pics looks lighter than in reality. I assume this is from the sheen of the material and the ISO of the camera increasing the light.

Maine JK They are definitely top notch. I have had mine a few months now and they are holding up great.

I had to tuck my original seat cover skirts inside the back. After having asses in the seats for a few days, it made it easier to be able to velcro the back. Grabbing the lower part with vice grips in the corner and pulling down on the back to get it started also helped.

Me too. I got the Weathertech tan liners and they are close. Since they don't touch the dash, they are close enough in color so you don't really notice. In the back, they touch the console and you can really see the difference but I don't sit in back so that's my kid's problem Best part is the saddle interior matches 5.11 Tactical Rush 72 coyote color perfectly. Now my get home bag matches my interior. Very important

I'm still processing. Ordered on the 28th so it's almost three weeks today. I'm patient.

Scott2373 I'll be happy when I finally get mine...been waiting about a month and a half. Mitch is a nice guy, but really lacks in the commo dept. I talked to him several times over the last month, then again yesterday and inquired as to when mine would be shipped. He said he'd email me when the production guys got back from lunch, but haven't received anything from him. I'm getting rather impatient...

brighton That is surprising that the quality is not there, considering the high quality of the seat covers.

The lumbar support is a plastic bladder with a blood-pressure-style air inflation bulb.

The apparatus itself appears cheap, and quality is poor. To me, it is in stark contrast to the obvious quality of the seat cover material.

The fitment of the apparatus within the seat covers is poor, and appears as an afterthought.

My biggest complaint is that it will not hold air for any extended period of time. Certainly, it deflates overnight. I can accept that. But, having to constantly pump during a short drive is disappointing. I am not that big a guy that my weight is causing deflation.

The support while inflated is actually ok.

The summary is that for the money, I could have found a more functional solution.

That said, none of my alternatives would be as aesthetically pleasing as the Trex option.

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

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.
