    Has anyone replaced Gen. 2.5 SR5 cloth seats with leather seats from a Limited model? Are SR5 's prewired for the heated seats?
    Thanks for any responses.

    I don't think the SR5 is wired for heat either.
    Besides that, the OEM seat heater switch is in the dual-zone climate control in most 2.5 Tundras.

    The Limited leather is cheap.
    I had Limited seats put in my SR5 when I bought it new.
    It started flaking apart after 3 years and I replaced the front with Katzkins.

    As others stated, buy leather seat covers for your existing seats.
    You can add seat heaters as you replace the fabric with the leather.
    I tapped into the 12v plug wiring for power and mounted my switches in the console.

    I used 2 of these..

    Amazon.com: Rostra 250-1870 Carbon Fiber Seat Heater : Automotive

    Several threads on seat covers and adding seat heaters..

    Yes, like the others have suggested. You're probably better off adding aftermarket leather and heaters to your existing seats. And plus you can customize it with different colors if you like. My old Tundra was a SR5 and I did custom leather with custom stitching, looked great!

    You would have to switch to dual zone digital ac controls to get the seat heater control button.

    This would requiring changing the AC ecu and I don’t think dual zone ac controls/ecu would work well on a single zone ac truck. You would loose temp vent control on the passenger side.
