    Well after nearly 3 years, 13,000 views, 50 pages and 150+ kits distributed through the last Group Buy, I've decided to refresh it up a lil bit....

    Katzkin continues to offer me great deals and unbeatable craftsmanship on amazing looking factory and custom designed kits. Below you will find pricing and a link to my website in which I can be contacted via phone/text or email. Or if you like just PM me directly through the forum. I can get kits for any late model vehicle (1995+) and the same options and pricing will apply.

    95% of the Tacoma kits distributed were installed by the members themselves with the help of HomerTacos DIY Thread right here on this forum (Thanks Homer!!) but if you decide to have it installed locally, I can provide you with a Katzkin Certified Installer in your area. Delivery can be expected in 10-12 business days and payment is accepted through a detailed PayPal Invoice from myself or any major Credit Card.

    BUILDING YOUR CUSTOM SEAT
    Through my website below you can build your custom seat. NOT every color is available is in this link as Katzkin offers 130+ colors and various textures including a Carbon Fiber look, ostrich, gator, suedezkin just to name a few.

    http://azautoleather.com/index.php



    PRICING IS AS FOLLOWS
    • Standard Kit $750
    • Premium Kit $875
    • Two Tone $60
    • Contrasting Stitch $40
    • Piping $75
    • Perforation $40
    • Liquicell $100
    • TRD/Toyota Logos $25/each
    • Heated Seats $60/each
    • Install Kit (Hog Rings and Pliers) $20
    SHIPPING WILL BE $25 ON ALL ORDERS :)

    Thank you all especially Andrew H. who have helped make the Katzkin Leather Mod soooooo much fun.
    Sincerely,
    John Huey

    I just bought a kit from John and got it installed this week. The quality is top notch, and he was willing to answer an install question even on a weekend. Highly recommended.

    Do you have more details on installing the seat heaters? Wiring, switches, etc?

    Turned out very nice.

    I'm just going to say this is an amazing deal if you're inclined to put them in yourself.

    I just did the math and for everything I just ordered for my truck his price would be $1,065.

    I am paying $1,395 for mine. So basically install is costing me $330. If you're good at DIY projects I'd jump on this.

    Standard vs. Premium

    Both kits are complete and include the matching door panel inserts.

    If you are ordering a two tone kit for an Access Cab the rears will be a single tone to match the outside wrap color of your front seating.

    Awesome, not to bad but I think I'm going to install myself. Last question before I decide how to burn this tax return. Does "each" in your price sheet mean $60 per seat or per front and back pair?

    I assume pricing is for a double cab. Correct?

    Pricing is the same for both the Access Cab and Double. Also option pricing is for the Complete kit. Ex. $60 will two tone the entire front and rears.

    This stuff is the REAL DEAL. This price is incredibly good. I did not use the group buy because I did not want to do the install myself. If you are inclined to do your own install, jump on this deal. Hell, even if you're not I am sure you could find an upholstery shop that would do it for a reasonable price.

    Hey Shawn Thanks for those nice pics!!
    I assume that is the New Cobalt Color?? Looks great with the Black logo as well. The Liquicell is a gel pad that is seen between the leather and 1/4" foam that Katzkin already applies to each kit. Works well with heaters kits and tends to firm it up a bit.

    The upholstery shop I use charges $200 for the seats only. Extra for armrests and doors. I thought that was an amazing price.
