Advice, opinions on OEM leather change over QUICK!


Recommended Posts

Been wanting leather in my truck from day one tired of the lint magnets. I can buy a set of OEM leather for 300 to put in my crew cab. I assume the cloth has to come off and leather installed. Any special tools needed or sewing required? I consider myself to be a good parts changer but not a upholster. Can this be done myself?

yes you can do it yourself. its mostly clamps and zippers and a lot of tugging and pulling! i chose not to install it myself simply because i wasn't charged for installation, just the cost of the leather.

 

one tip i can give you is get some self tapping screws and bolt the front seat bottoms to the frame where they attach. i have aftermarket leather and the place i had it installed had to do that to keep the seat bottom attached.

i think this is what the factory leather seat TSB is about. the front seat bottom comes unattached, and the only way to keep it in place is to bolt it down. you'll know what i'm talking about once you break it apart!
