Wow that took a strange turn after an 11 month thread hiatus.

Yeah if someone can't find seat covers for a 4Runner his Google Fu is seriously lacking...

Iím having difficulty deciding between OR versus ORP and mainly cloth versus Softex (Sunroof is plus or minus for me). I have a 50# dog and an infant. The cloth seems better for the dog nails but softex is better for baby spit up (and thus clean up). Just wondering if ppl with the softex (and no seat protectors) thought it was still holding up with dog nails? Iím currently leaning towards cloth. Thank you!

No problem with nails, but there's one stubborn muddy paw print in the front seat that doesn't want to clean up. From 70lb lab.

I'm new to the 4Runner world, but I have three dogs who are very energetic and go with us everywhere that we are able to take them, weather permitting (it gets HOT inside of vehicles here in AZ). They were used to riding with their paws on the center console of my Jeep Liberty CRD before I got the 4Runner, so they like to try to do the same thing now and are always popping their front paws over the folded rear seats to try to stand next to us in the front. Initially I freaked out about trying to keep their paws off the console until I could find a cover for it, but a little over a month in I have already realized that the Softex is way more resilient than I expected. They regularly ride with their paws on the center console and our smallest dog, a ~20# Jack-Russel/Schnauzer mix, occasionally scampers over the console to jump down at my wifes feet to lay on the floor for longer car rides. After cleaning with some synthetic leather cleaner and wiping down with the ECP Softex protector from Toyota, you cant even tell that there have been dogs in the vehicle!

On top of that, we went out camping a couple of weeks ago and someone out in the woods was firing a gun off, which scares the crap out of the aforementioned dog, so we decided to let her jump in the car to "hide". She decided to make a "nest" in the driver seat and proceeded to scratch at the seat for what was probably 60 seconds or more by the look of things. The whole seat was scratched up and had that whitish-grey disturbed look. As a new-to-me vehicle, I was pissed. After camping, we loaded up and headed home. By the time we jumped out of the vehicle 4 or 5 hours later, and much to my surprise, just our butts moving in the seats had "polished" the scratches out and you couldn't even tell they were there. Another quick cleaning and protectant coating and they seriously look like the seats out of a showroom vehicle.

Needless to say, I am very impressed with the Softex upholstery and based on the look of the cloth seats in my buddies Tacoma (with 2 dogs and now 2 kids), I would never settle for cloth seats expecting them to hold up better than Softex. Alone it may not be worth the upgrade to Premium, but if thats whats keeping anyone on the fence, I would recommend the Softex.

Our dog used to chew the seat belts, and we would get very annoyed with that. So, whenever we had to travel around and take him with us, one of us had to keep him still to destroy the seat belts. It was pretty challenging at the begging cause he would also puke while in the car. My husband then suggested we get him a Dog Rope Toys he'd seen online, so Rex can chew the toy instead. We would always give him the toy when we had to go on long road trips, and we would play with it for the entire time. So, that's our story. Might want to try it out yourselves!
