    Has anyone added leather to a double cab? How much did it cost, where did you go, how is it holding up?

    Costs around $1300-$1400 for the Liquicell stuff, installed through the dealer. Mine's about 8 months old and there's discernable wear on the driver's seat outside edge. That's where I always make first contact in and out. Everywhere else looks pristine.

    HAD to have a leather interior this time around.

    I got it as a dealer installed deal. I've had it since March and still looks as good as new. I think it was 1400 with heated front seats.

    Toyota does not offer Leather from the factory. They have leather inserts, but no full leather.

    2009 model year, leather is available from the factory. Previously it was a dealer installed accessory.

    My dealership in Knoxville is going to install for 1400. I would have bought my truck with leather if they had it at the time. At least that price includes 3 years 36K mile warranty.

    I installed Clazzio leather covers myself, I got them on E-Bay for $450 to the house.The inserts are perforated, so they breathe a little more than the solid panels, you don't "stick" in the hot weather It was fairly easy, just a couple of hours, and some tightening up here and there is after a couple of hot days to let them "shape". Clazzio offers a "black" set. I got the grey and it's a nice dark grey match for the rest of the interior. I thought about the black but the grey lightens up the interior. I've seen solid leather covers on E-Bay for $300, but only grey, and sand color. Clazzio is the only black covers I've seen, they fit/ look pretty nice.
