    Bought a 05 TRD Sport SB CC 4X4 2 years ago used with 87k, I liked it so much I just broke down and went down to the dealer last night and Bought a 2011 Same exact truck but in Speedway Blue, I'm excited!
    The wife tring to talk me into puting two tone leather in it DK Charcoal, with pearl white insert what do you think? Any other suggestions?
    Once I decide I will order it and install it. U will notice I put leather in the 05 just DK Charcoal, she wants it to look sport with two tone color...

    White inside a truck would be a very bad idea for me :) Congrats on the new rig.

    Yeah, I'm thinkin' charcoal with a lighter gray inset, rather than white. That'll give you the two tone look, without the maximum-stain-visibility feature.

    People will try to convince you to mount black rims on it. Don't do it! SWB looks best with a polished wheel.

    Welcome back, I have not seen you around in a while. Hopefully soliciting other peoples opinion on your truck works out better for you this time. :thumbsup:

    Go Katzin with heat!

    Two tone.....not for me :D keeping white clean?? not sure about that.

    Homertaco has an excellent DIY thread if you up for it. Do a "leather" search. You will get some great ideas.

    ^ that looks awesome! Can't go wrong with that.

    does the Katskinz leather covers go over the existing cloth ones?

    No, the OEM cloth must be removed. I chose to have it done by a professional leather installer rather than learn as you go.

    As mentioned a above, a member on here Homertaco has a very well done thread for installing leather yourself if you feel up to the challenge. I just did not have the time.
