Awesome!

Your welcome John and Thank You very much for the great pics and awesome setup.... Gotta love the piping

Canadian guys plan on paying the same plus $60 on the shipping and yes the TRD embroidery can either be applied to the lean backs OR the headrests your choice (please specify when ordering)

Yes although Katzkin doesn't show the Regular cabs available on their site, I can get them. Plan on $650 for just that single row.

I bought Katzkin seats when I bought my Prerunner at CarMax. My seat heaters have rocker switches on the sides of the seats. I would love to get these front controller switches. Any way to buy just the switches and wiring?

I can get em however your probably into them for about $70-75 for the pair just for the switches. Because they have the roller switch there is an additional Heat Distribution Amplifier that is needed as well..

I bought my kit from John last summer,

Just wanted to say he gave me great service and replied to my questions promptly when I emailed him, and I love my leather seats!

Thanks John

What I would really like is to have an indicator where this would go that would remind me that a seat heater is on. Granted, I know when to cut mine off, it's warmer than my wife's Explorer seat heaters. When my wife rides in my truck, she sometimes forgets to cut the seat heater off. I'm fine where my on-off controls are now, and really don't need the roller switch. Is there something I could get that would fit into those areas and serve as an indicator?

Are these being left on when the vehicle is shut off?
If so reroute the Power wire to an Accessory Power only. This wire should only be HOT when the ignition is in the ON position.

How do they justify charging the same amount for an access cab as the do for the double cab? That's quite a difference in material being used and time.

No, it's wired properly. They are off when the truck is off. I only catch it when I'm using my truck on sales calls, and I put something in the passenger seat and notice it feels warm, and then I find out she left it on.

I only use mine when its dang cold outside, and then only long enough to warm up and off mine goes.

Something in that area under the AC controls saying the seat heater is on would be cool, but not necessary.

Oh Gotcha... Maybe just a simple led light in-line would work?

As far as Katzkins pricing on their kits I've bitched a quite a few times. Not only do I pay the same for the Access Cabs as I do the Double Cabs but I also pay the same on a Regular Cab (single row) as I do the Doubles

On occasion if I just need a single row I turn to Roadwire as it is a lil cheaper however I kick myself when for whatever reason it just doesn't fit as well.
