    first you need to set the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral. remove the shifter knob and transfercase knob.
    [​IMG]

    then you remove the 5 phillips head screws holding the console in place. then you remove the 4 black phillips head screws that holds your boots into place.
    [​IMG]

    then you remove the 4 12mm bolts holding the shifter tower into place
    [​IMG]

    next you want to take 2 flat head screw drivers and turn the shifter collar counterclockwise while pushing down.
    [​IMG]

    after it looks when it comes out
    [​IMG]

    then you pull the shifter socket out. make sure you get the rubber gasket too.
    [​IMG]

    out with the old seats in with the new seats
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    next you can replace the socket. pull it off off and push the new one on
    [​IMG]

    then you can put it back together in reverse

    Its just clothing fabric. I got it at a fabric store. I was looking for max4 but not any luck. Just make sure you use good adhesive. I used the locktite brand

    was looking over the Tacoma the other day and found this. looks like rear springs and contacting the rear shocks when flexing. anyone else ran into this?
