    Installed leather seats from a 2002 4Runner Sport, big improvement over original seats.
    Had to removed the bottom rails from the Tacoma seats and installed them onto the 4Runner seats. The 4Runner rails were just not right but after swiping rails they bolt up and operate perfectly.

    Sub'd, nice looking 2000! How much more comfortable are those 4Runner seats? May do that since it didn't seem like a big hassle to swap

    And what year are those mirrors?

    The seats are night and day difference and the mirrors are for a 2003 model, much easier to see whats behind you and I think they also look better.
