Really looks nice.

And if I may ask, what are those seat covers?
They just look like the euro lights on my camera phone at night.

Package from GB arrived today 4 out of 5 made it. 5th as a single looks like it was dropped and the lip bent. In any case the other 4 are perfect.

Wow, Wetokole has come far. Had them on a 2001 Escape when new and these look much better. Thx.

Thx and agree which is why I took advantage of living over here and purchased them. Shipping wasn't pretty, yet, not too bad. Hassle is going to be what to do about the damaged one.

Looks like you stayed with the OEM tire for the spare. Did the same with mine as carry a Safety Seal kit if I do puncture a tire. We took out the CD player and placed an amp for the radio which also was replaced although now I can't play any of my cassettes lol. At least there is a connection for the i whatever for music.
Pop quiz - what is rectangular space behind the small speaker enclosure on the side panel for? In Europe you have to carry a safety triangle for when you break down and that space was designed to hold it so it is easily accessible. Or so I was told by my local LR dealer who has been in business forever.

Like how they cover the armrests and what colors/trim did you pick?

There isn't to much info on the website where I'm looking... pretty vague.
I assume its their captains chairs for the front
and the 60/40 bench for the rear?

I didn't want to leave a giant hole there. Also, I don't think mine came with the changer. It's wired for it and the bracket is (was) there but no changer. I've heard some of them didn't come with it.

Color code was 235? I think. I forget the name of it, but I ordered the same color for the covers and piping. It's a much better match than the Kexby tan color was. Anyone reading this with confusion should check out the Wet Okole order page, it will make more sense.




Will be at URE tomorrow... with my new (to me) KVT/Roversolutions rack

Typical SWB with seat cushion trim busted all to hell.

Discovery 1 had same trim, but improved mounting arrangement.

Requires drilling two holes. No more floppy trim.
How about a new e-brake boot?

Didn't need one, after cleanup it looked great.

I want to see those seat covers this weekend. Need something for the efftwofiddy 40/20/40 seat. Wet Okole has them for $320 with a drivers side pistol pocket.

Those seat covers look great and as mentioned we had them in the past on our Escape. Just a quick comment they sell Oder Eater product for a reason. Ours did start to smell after awhile so we had to remove and wash them with the OE solution.

Depending on how wet you get them over what time period will determine the frequency of washing. With us carrying 2 wet Labs in the back most of the time, it was about every 2 weeks.

Ours were really comfortable and were still looking good after 3 years plus the leather underneath was perfect when we sold it.

Certainly true. My truck came with Wet Okole covers and they smelled a bit like soured laundry. Comfy but they brought a new meaning to swamp ass.

So if you had a choice between covers made of neoprene or Carhart canvas which would you choose ? Wet Okole definitely seem to fit better than any other product.

Would be interested to hear how much people snag on the neoprene-I've never had good luck with that stuff but that's a slightly different application.

Also worth noting I've had zero fitment issues with all the 'carhart' covers I've put on D1 & RRC's, it takes a minute to get a good fit but they fit well.

I'm not snagging. Erik rode shotgun last night and he didn't snag.




Truck is doing great.
