    Looks great! Wondering if they have options for covers plus "more comfort/cushion"... The seats aggregate my back problems...

    How do you just buy the kit, and install yourself? I can only find dealers that will only sell to me if they install.

    here is a how to. its prob the most complete next to the thread homer made about his. self install is very straight forward. here is a blow by blow, including the mistakes i made. if i had to do it again, i would. i appreciate the leather and seat heaters every single time i use my truck.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/te...b-katzkin-leather-installation-pix-heavy.html

    my local shop wanted around $800-$1000 for the installation if i just brought them the seats.

    Check for auto/boat upholsterers in your area. I went with a shop that installs only leather seat covers and sunroofs for auto dealerships, but also for private owners.

    ^^^this.

    Wow, that's high, though one high-end shop quoted me $800 also. I paid $500 and frankly, the install was outstanding, better than I believe I could have done as I have no experience. but quite a few guys here have done it :D

    Thanks :)
