    Guys,

    I have a 2006 tacoma. Let's be honest, your seats look terrible.. so, fix it. I looked around to see if anyone did it cheap. They dont.... order the parts and rebuild it yourself. My wife and I did both seats in a few hours..

    Soo you read this far, here is the "trick" decide which parts of each seat you need. They are expensive.

    Once you get them and take the seat out. Simply cut the metal orings holding the fabric to the seat. You don't need them. Your replacing them with zip ties.. omg... we fought and fought with the oem rings... give it up. Unless your a flyfisherman who can bench press 200 pounds do it my way.....

    Nice.. I needed you about 7 days ago.. the zip ties accomplished the same effect. Thanks for the update

    FYI, you have to shut "crawl control " off. While being toed... it would be nice if they ever said that.. it causes the software to panic.. ill upload video sometime.

    16FD43B9-D281-4786-BFB9-3A3FDD8BC95E.jpg No they weren’t pre wired. I bought a kit from this company. Ive been using this company for about 10 years now installed them in my old jeep and my canyon i drove for a year. Once you have them you will always want them
    Just call them and get a universal kit I always opted for the flat switches. Theses seats get f- ing hot!

    Better shot of switches. I just used the stock blanks and cut a slot for the ribbon cables to go through there a little extra work for the flat switches over the round rockers that they offer but more factory looking in my opinion
