    I have a white 2012 DBL cab with gray cloth right now. The dash in Charcoal and the floor mats more of a black. The dealer normally puts in light gray in all the trucks but I have the option to do:

    1) All Black
    2) Light Gray
    3) Charcoal
    4) Two tone combo at no extra charge. I was thinking light gray trim pieces and charcoal on the inserts where you sit.

    What would be your vote as I need to tell them soon?

    I was thinking two tone since it is fairly unique and normally a premium price. I am hesitant to do black as all of the plastic on the seat is light gray and also why I was thinking two tone. Light gray for the whole interior seems a bit boring and may also show more wear.

    I'm actually doing this at the moment, well not at this particular moment, but the truck is in my garage all torn apart. I did all black leather, couldn't wait the extra time for 2 tone. I'm also dyeing black the center console and all the plastic trim pieces on the seat to match the leather. I'll take more pics as I get further. But here are a couple crappy cell phone pics, it's all I had at the time.

    What it looked like yesterday afternoon

    I went with the katzkin. I went two tone charcoal surround with ice grey centers. And I threw in a splash of red contrast stitching.

    Anybody sell their OEM fabric seat covers after installing Katzkin leather? Wondering if there's a market for them to offset cost of the upgrade.
