    I have them, they are very high quality for the price, i was very surprised.
    Its nice thick leather and feel like quality stuff to the touch.

    fit wise, the lumbar could be more form fitting, the center part kind of floats unless you put your back on it....maybe as it wears it will stretch and sit properly...it doesn't look bad though, you only notice it when you push on and realize there a gap between the leather and the seat.

    My other caveat is that for the TRD sport seats, the flap thats supposed to connect to each other on the seat cushion part doesn't work on because its designed for the plastic back of the access cab...not sure if they sent me the wrong ones but since it came in a sealed box with the rear seat covers to i doubt that. OR i just put hem on wrong? very possible ;)

    But in the end, i do like them a lot and so far everyone that sees them think they're OEM.

    I also put in these seat heaters while at it

    Thats how I got mine. They only have blak and grey in stock. Any changes to that requires special order and they say 8 week wait.

    got any night pics of those heated seat switches? i saw those on ebay months ago. just curious as to what exactly lights up. the shape and styling are very similar to the oem ones, but i wasnt sure if they lit up the same.

    nevermind, checked out your link. different brand than what i was looking at, but very similar idea. different companies, same switch. kinda wish that the seat icon lit up separately. better set up than trying to use oem switches bc a bunch of guys have tried it with little to no results bc of resistance differences.

    the way the work is that the green light comes on when you turn your lights on...thats their backlight if you will. then when you turn your seat heater on, the red square light goes on. I wish it wasn't green, but its not too bad since its down where there hop other lights so its not too out of place...but white wouldve been much classier.

    the wheel has 5 click positions...i highly recommend taking off any or as much padding that the clazzios come with. they have a pretty think foam on the inside that not only makes it a bitch to put them on, but makes the heaters VERY isolated from the surface... id don't see why you would need this foam if they're going over the existing seats already. Maybe if your were replacing the factory seat covers it makes more sense.
    Anyway, once you do that, its a very nice graduation of heat setting.


    i looked into the OEM switches and the wiring and potentiometer debacle was just ridiculous to try and make it work. These fit perfect i the slots and aside from the party green back lights, they're perfect.

    heres two more shots, better view.....nevermind my pooches paw prints on armrest, thats his copilot area. Here you get a sense of how the lumbar center section doesn't quite sit on flush, it floats over the center section. I think the leather will stretch with time and be more form fitting though. It stretches very easily to it when you sit and lay on it, there no weird pressure on your back or anything.

    Looks great. I'm gonna go w/ the round switches since I have an 08 and don't have that location for the switches.

    Thanks for the info. I have been pondering for quite sometime wondering about these Clazzio custom fit leather covers. Saw them on ebay for quite sometime and could never pull the trigger. Your pics have really made my decision to move toward getting them muc more of a reality.

    Will post my pics if and when I get them.

    I came over from an '08 4Runner where I purchased the Clazzio covers for my rig. Clazzio is actually thru Toyota dealerships and put into cars where leather was not an option. They are high quality and if you want to buy them I recommend purchasing them thru trdsparks.com (http://www.trdsparks.com/displayparts.php?Mdl_dtl=833&Part_cat=32&parts_id=4334) They are a toyota dealership out of South Carolina and can order these things quickly for you. Keep in mind, these covers are custom ordered from Japan and can take up to 4 months for delivery. Middle insert options include: suede, leather, PVC vinyl.

    I can tell you from handling the PVC's in person that they feel amazing!! The leather ones actually have the PVC material out the outside and just the middle insert is leather. I've asked Sparks Toyota a few questions regarding the durability of both and was told the PVC feels similar to leather and would probably hold up better. Comparing prices you're looking at $450 vs $270....I'm about to order me up some PVCs again. Just know that it'll take a few months to receive them regardless of what you choose. Unless you a.) order off of eBay or b.) call Sparks and ask what they have in stock and you may get lucky that they have your combo available.
