    Everything about my new 2016 Tundra Limited is fantastic. That said if I was able to change the seats from grey to black I'd quit.

    Is it possible to take these covers off and have them dyed black or is that impossible and I just need to bite the bullet and buy new Toyota Leather?

    I have seen guys on some forums with leather seat covers from http://katzkin.com

    I believe the guys were happy with them, but obviously I would dive into reviews etc.

    You may be able to sell your factory leather covers to recoup some of the expense.

    Thanks RR I'll look at that. I take it they are installed over the current leather seats?

    Good luck, keep us updated. Do you have any pictures of your current grey leather interior?

    I replaced the fabric in my '07 w/ leather. I found a kit on ebay, about $500, that said they were oem, not Katskin etc. The old fabric came off and the new leather went on. Took me at least a day but it came out great and I'd do it again.....But, bought the new truck with leather.... Maybe I really wouldn't wanna do it again ha ha. It'd be a good time to add seat warmers too.

    No pics. I could. The truck has < 2000 miles.

    Ebay OEM! That's interesting.

    Not necessary, just curious, thanks.
    I have cloth in my truck, some days I like it better, some days I wish I had leather..
