    Hope you don't mind my asking, what heated seat kit did you use? I've been looking into this for a while and those look nice, whole seat bottom and back. Thanks!!

    not like you actually used it anyway... still isn't wired up is it?

    in the group buy there was a lot of cst problems and the vendor ended up switching to just katzkin. mine and craigs cst seem to fit fine, but some others did not.

    Homer,

    Wanted to thank you again for the encouragement earlier this year and most of all for your detailed write up.

    I decided to try this myself since i couldnt find an installer and these turned out fantastic. Not hard at all. Just took time. I did them with seat heaters and wfused and wired them with relay to only come on with ignition. I put the switches on the center console and now that winter is here... the seat heaters are awesome. My son loves everything. I could do this without this write up.

    Thank you again.

    I did this DIY upgrade 2 years ago with Homer's help and it has been the single best upgrade I've done to my Tacoma. I was looking to install leather in my wife's 2011 4Runner but it looks like maybe Classic Soft Trim changed their business model? The clearance list is gone but even on the regular site I can only find what Item # to choose but no where to buy it direct. Does anyone have any input on this or possibly a good alternative?
    Thanks!
