    I don't know why John Huey isn't an official vendor of this site yet but he should be. We have a lot of vendors but none that hook us up with Leather Katskin kits. He hooked me and many others up with bad ass leather kits for our Tacomas. Customer service was great and many others have had awesome experience dealing with him! If you want leather I definitely recommend working with John.

    +1 vote for John and Affordable Leather.

    Very good person to deal with, answers questions promptly and works his damnedest to help YOU the customer. Very patient also.

    If my dealings with John, I found I was making a few changes, and he worked with me every step of the way so I could get exactly what it was that I wanted and complete the look I was going for perfectly.

    I would recommend him to anyone.

    YES I love my leather. Great service, fast shipping and kept me up to date throughout the whole process. I've had nothing but nice compliments about my leather and it's one of my favorite mods.

    Great guy to deal with. Pricing was lower than anywhere else and you're getting Katzkin which is the best leather interior supplier out there. He'll also hook you up for other makes and models as well. Can't say enough good things about the whole process.

    John's a great guy to deal with. My only disappointment with my purchase was that I couldn't get the embroidered logos but I stress that was not John's fault. Katzkin's wasn't doing the logos at the time, they are now though. I recommend the leather kits to anyone, quality is super and I can't wait to order another kit for one of my other vehicles.

    This is the only guy that voted no and he never elaborated why; don't even think he has ever spoken to John either so don't pay attention to it.

    Douche was just trollin'.
