    Hey guys,

    I'm gonna be pullin the trigger on some Katzkin leather seats first of the year, but am stuck on what color combo. Need your guys Input and opinions.

    Option one: all gray with perforated inserts.

    Option two: gray with black perforated inserts.

    Now the thing is, I'm going to have the armrests covered as well, and was going to go with black. If I do black armrests with all gray seats, will that look dumb? Or should I get black armrests with option two?

    OR, should I do gray armrests? Lol.

    Help me out guys, I'm goin crazy.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    This wasn't listed, but I would do black seats and black armrests.

    I have all black Wet Okoles in mine, and I love the look.

    Thanks Fink. I was originally going to go with Wet Okoles but for just a couple hundred more, I could get leather. I definitely don't want to do all black, I think it would get too hot here in Az.

    Im getting there......
    I think two tone leather seats look really cheap especially grey and black...that will just look trashy...also it won't match the interior plastic of your truck....I would go all grey and armrests you could go grey or black I think it'd be up to you given that the doors have black trim already.

    That's what I was thinking too. The only reason I'd want the two tone, is to match the black armrests. I definitely prefer the solid gray, I'm just not sure how the black armrests will look.

    Will it look ok since the doors have black trim? Or should I do gray armrests?

    I have Solid gray/black leather katzkins in mine, In no way do they look trashy. They are very nice, Love the heated seats and have gotten nothing but compliments on them.

    Depends on what options I get, and if I want to drive down to Tucson (4 hour drive round trip) to have them installed instead of shipped up to me. Probably between 8-1k

    If I was doing leather, I'd do all black with smooth sides, perforated centers (maybe do a red or something in the center if anything). Otherwise all black.

    I say Color match to your truck, Except white. HAHA get the centers red if you have a red truck, Or blue if you have a blue truck... You get my drift. That way you can paint everything else to match and have it look really sweet!

    Not trying to sound like a douche.. but why does everyone like all black? Serious question. Lol. It would get hot, show wear more, and imo doesn't look as good. I'm leaning towards option two. Nice balance of both colors

    Yepp, I thought about doing white inserts... Then i remember i actually get dirty everyday and get in and out of my truck and that pretty much Squashed that idea. All black with white stitching would look good, Thats what i should have done but went with solid gray to keep the stock look in the cab.

    Myth. My G35 had all black leather interior and it was no hotter than any other, in fact my wet okole's are probably hotter. Why do we like it? Cause it's pure sex, it's like having 5 half nekkid swedish girls in your truck, only drier.
