01-04 Leather Seats ???

Does anyone know where to get these? Like if i watched ebay or something would i ever see them? I have never seen a tacoma with leather but i read on another thread that some one had leather! I want leather!

I was planning on ordering some leather/suede Corribeaus (spelling?) but if i could get Toyota seats that would be better

Thanks

well i have have an 03 and now an 02, the seats in the 03 were CRAP. They were super uncomfortable. But the truck i have now has really nice cloth seats, way better than the 03 had but its still no match for leather.

Leather was an option on 01-04 Tacoma Limiteds. I have never seen one, though. Try a local upholstery shop. or http://www.katzkin.com/main.html

Well, no ...

Leather seats were never a factory option on the 1995.5 - 2004 Tacomas, not even with any of the factory trim packages.

Some dealers offered leather upholstery as a trim accessory at the point of sale (done locally, not from the factory).

If I'm not mistaken, one or more of the regional 'special edition' Tacomas of that period (usually in Gulf States or Southeast regions) included leather, but this also would have been added at the port or dealership.

I stand corrected.

Me too! And yes the stockers are a little uncomfy after a few hours...

My 03 DC has leather front and rear. The window sticker has leather interior listed, it looks factory, even the door fabric is leather. I find them really comfy but the driver side seat is starting to tear at the seams.

My 02 had leather seats. To the best of my knowledge it was dealer installed or aftermarket.


There was a thread on TW where I had posted the company name. The front seats and the door inserts were gray leather. The rear jump seats (xtra cab) were cloth.

My 03 is the exact same way. I haven't had any problems with it starting to tear yet, but I just bought it in February though.

Leather is hot in the summer and cold in the winter! Why would you want it other than to look cool for having leather seats? I have a Limited DoubleCab with cloth seats and love it. I would hate to have leather in my truck.

Hmmm, I'm the opposite, this is the first truck I've had with leather and would really hate to go back to cloth. I do a lot of ww kayaking and love it because I can jump in wet if I need to and it doesnt soak up the water like cloth. Its also great when the kids make a mess!

There is a local shop that re-worked the front seats a in 4Runner that I used to detail on a regular basis. They were amazing... 2 tone tan leather, and they even changed the padding in the seat. They were 10 times more comfortable than the stock seats.

I think he paid about $1,200 to have them redone.
