    i got tired of the stains and bs......the light grey stains really easy and the black shows the salt. so i go tthe worst of both worlds lol....when i bought the truck i found out that you cant order leather or nav radio etc in a standard cab truck:dizzy:


    i bought the factory seat covers from the local GM dealer for about $500and it took about 25minutes and it looks great.....so what do ya think

    Looks good!

    How would you rate this on the difficulty scale? I have a crew cab with cloth - but would love to have leather. It just wasn't available at the time of purchase - plus I wanted the 60-40 split like yours.

    it took about 25minutes and was easy easy to do. the total cost was $547

    but it takes a really good parts guy to figure it out. it's not as simple as just saying i want black leather......they have to find a truck's vin that has the color and style you want. so make sure the part's guy is 100% confident in himself

    Looks good PJ, I wonder why you can't get leather in a reg cab because you have the same seat as my crew cab. Must be nice to have all that extra money lieing around.
