    Ok so I went to Toyota and they are telling me 1300 to install leather w/o heated seats and $1800 with heat. They do not know what type of leather the company uses and I lose the truck for 3 days. Should I just buy katskinz and attempt myself? Need my fellow tundra forum family's honest opinion before I pull the trigger.

    Or buy the Katskinz and have them or another authorized, and trusted vendor install it

    I got quotes from an authorized katzskin installer for hented/ventilated replacement upgraded leather for less than what you were quoted.

    That's what I figured, I really want a reputable company install for warranty purposes.

    I got Katskinz done at the Toyota dealer for $900 on a CM. I have a family discount, but that tells you what they are able to do.

    I'd call around. $500 to add seat heaters seems way too high. You should be able to go under $1500 easily.

    Today is the first time I've seen the DC ones. Maybe because I've been searching a different year. Not sure.

    Looks like a steal

    Clazzio (from what I've heard) is good but not the same as kayskinz. I have 0 experience with either so don't base anything on that statement. It's what I was told when I was looking. Other things have taken presidency is why I held off. Keep me posted though

    Trusted me I've messaged and zoomed in on the pics. He is an upholstery shop so it's probably items ordered by people or stock he keeps on hand
