    I have looked and am depressed that a platinum doesnt have the option for redrock and 2nd row bench seating. I have 3 small kids and think putting three in the second row would be best for trips for the whole trunk to be packed. I was almost sold on the limited but then realized it wasnt available for the pearl white? wtf. Super white is hideous to me. So im back on to the platinum with redrock which is what i wanted.
    Anyway does anybody know or researched buying a junked cars 2nd row tan seats which seams to only be a couple hundred dollars and finding a place that sells the redrock to reupholster these to match? i see someone is selling this middle bench in redrock on ebay but whats the point if it can fit between the captains chairs?

    I too cannot seem to understand why Toyota would not offer a full bench option 2nd row for the Platinum trim. It's literally the only reason I went with the Limited trim or else I would have gotten a Platinum.

    Also, i know the platinum 2nd row seats have arm rests as where the outer 2 seats on the Limited trim do NOT have arm-rests. Reason I mention this is that I don't know if only getting the middle seat from a Limited will directly drop-in between the captains chairs.

    no it wont i understand that this isnt possible unless the whole system is swapped from sr5 or limited. i just cannot find a website to oem match a leather red rock seat for the middle row

    you might have to go custom and have an upholstery shop color-match it

    Buy a limited or sr5 bench leather seat and have it professionally dyed to match

    I also went with Limited Sequoia because we prefer the bench seat in 2nd row. While the platinum model is nice with the captain chairs, the bench seat is more useful for our family. I have red rock interior in my Tundra platinum, also having a hard time finding replacement leather. My driver seat is showing some wear and I got quote for $700-1000 to re-upholster the whole driver seat. Like someone said previously, your best bet would probably find a bench 2nd seat and have it dyed or reupholstered to match.

    Another idea is to get the Limited and then get an aftermarket leather kit like katzkins in any color you want.

    Maybe just removing the armrests off the captains chairs is enough to get them to fit

    no the seat cushions are supposedly like 2" wider or something.
    I think i decided to find a red rock interior and find a limited tan bench and refinish it to match the redrock. I watched a couple videos about it and in one they changed from tan to cinnamon for a bmw, it looks very tedious but its worth it. video
