    So, I bought my truck with a cigarette burn on the driver's seat bottom.:eek: Additionally, the driver's seat is starting to wear quite a bit where I slide in and out of the truck. I really don't want slip covers in this truck.

    The Katzkin leather kits look nice, but I really would be happy with just some fresh OEM seat upholstery. The dealer wants around 350 for the seat bottom and 375 for the seat back.:rolleyes: Is this just a fact of life, or does someone here have a hookup on a reasonable price for the OEM stuff? Hard to accept that a complete leather kit for a double cab truck is only a couple hundred bucks more than factory cloth for ONE seat.

    Does anyone make aftermarket cloth covers that go on like the Katzkin stuff?

    I put a set of semi-custom sheepskin covers in my '08 SR5. They are not terribly expensive and are supremely comfortable summer or winter. The install will leave your fingers sore, but is doable by most anyone. Many colors are available...I chose natural:

    Man you must be covered in fuzz from those things. Especially when sweaty.

    No fuzz and the lamb's wool doesn't hold odors...standard practice for many pilots, motorcyclists, and truckers.
