    I really have been enjoying my Katzkin leather interior with the heated option. If you have a little disposable income, I would highly reccomend leather and heat.:D

    what did the leather and heaters cost you for the double cab? I am strongly considering the leather upgrade once I get my truck. I am thinking two tone and would like to do some type of red stitching. Just looking for a ballpark amout

    Professionally installed...100.00 per seat, (front only) well worth it in my opinion.
    A TW member HomerTaco has a DIY leather install which is very helpful if you decide to go this route. I decided to have the pros do the install which took them 4 hours.

    Hope this helps.

    Is that the cost of the labor to install or everything from the leather, heaters, switch, install and so on?

    Yep of course, 100.00 for both front seat heaters/100.00 per install both seats.
    Fronts only with switch install. :D well worth 2 bills to me.

    what color is that? is it just black or does it have some crazy name. How does it match the rest of the black in the truck? looks like you got solid leather? I'm considering getting perforated for the center panels.. what do you think?

    No, not even close..$200.00 for install of seat heat only. You are looking at probably 1200-1300 for everything. Heat, leather, switch. Not cheap, but as I said if you have the disposable income to do it, you won't regret it.:D

    Read my thread on the install, this should answer any questions you may have- I did not care for perforated panels, personal choice.

    I just brought my Tacoma Pre w/access home today with fresh Katzkin. I am simply blown away with how good it looks. Total cost including armrest and contrasting inserts was $1067.00. I did not get the heated seats cause I put Compustar Alarm with Drone and I simply grab my iphone and push the start button. I arrive to a "toasty" interior and a warmed up engine ready to go.

    Really have loved my Katzkin with the heated front seats! It is a bit pricey but very worth it! I did put mine in myself and saved some money by doing it that way. If your handy and dont mind the effort its a great addition to your truck. I give Katzkin two thumbs up. I have never done this kind of work before and it [​IMG]turned out great. Great product!!!
