    Anybody done any interior upgrades like heated and or cooled seats ? What about audio upgrades? Considering some upgrades if I don't trade for a 3/4 ton.

    Only upgrades I did was LED lights throughout the cab, LED front turn signals. Also leather stitched steering wheel wrap. Not a big deal but definitely an Upgrade from factory. The leather wrapped steering wheel turned out really nice.

    Did it myself (1).jpg

    Where did you get that and how difficult was the install. It looks great.

    I bought the cover off Amazon = https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QLWTZ0W/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. The one I chose was back leather with black thread. I thought the red thread would look good, but would show more imperfections than the black. They offer the cover in black leather/black thread, black leather/red thread, black suede & leather/ red thread, black suede/red thread. I wanted to keep the wheel looking as much like factory so I went with the black leather only.

    As for the installation, it's not hard, but be prepared for a days work. I started with the wheel on the truck. Once the wrap was in place and centered perfectly, I removed the wheel, took it into my kitchen where the light was much better and proceeded to begin stitching. Don't get in a hurry, the whole process took me about 4 1/2 to 5 hours, but it was SO worth it. For $55.99 there's no way you can beat this upgrade. Glad to know the 2020 PRO's are now coming with a leather wrapped steering wheel.

    There are quite a few really good YouTube videos on how to install the leather cover. A member here called WronwayUp has a really good tutorial about it.

    I have completely changed out the audio in my 2019 DC and also had Katzkins leather installed. Be happy to share any recommendations/opinions if you need.

    The only thing about the Loncky Leather Steering Wheel Cover now is that won't be shipped until April 6. That tells me they are still over in China, not a great place to buy products from right now. The one I bought was also from China, but was in an Amazon facility here in the USA, and was here within two days after the order was placed. It had probably been here in the states for quite a while.

    On my '14 SR I replaced the radio HU with a Pioneer 7200NEX which was a big improvement over the stock HU. But you may have a better unit than what was stock in mine.
    I got my Tundra used and it already had leather seats. I did install an aftermarket wood dash trim kit.
    Not sure if to call it an interior upgrade, but I also added a 4 camera system for use when going off-road. 1 camera in front of the two front wheels, one in the grill for seeing over the hood, and 1 mounted looking forward on the rear axle.
    A small item I added was a camera quick release mounted to the dash so I can keep my DLSR handy when traveling.
