    Good find on the wheels. Are you using the Flaming River U joint? Those seats look incredibly clean. I'm almost to the point of needing my leather reupholstered.

    It's not a flaming river one, but it's the same thing. Just generic off ebay for like $30.

    Dang i'd love some leather seats!
    Some of the stuff you find at the yard looks ridiculously clean, all the stuff at yards near me is crap.

    I used one of those eBay covers on my Denali driver seat. Looked great and wasn't too hard of a job - but I didn't keep the heating element. That's a lot of work I wasn't worth putting into that truck since I was getting ready to sell it lol

    I followed a tutorial on it, it's not hard at all! Basically you cut it out of the old seat, get down to just the element and make it as minimal as possible and lay it between the seat and new cushion. There is a good video on this site.

    Even with my hatred for leather i would still offer either testical for your truck, and as always, nice work.

    I really enjoy the look and feel of cloth, however the leather is less prone to stains/spills. And being heated.... That is what I was really after.

    Next step is to heat the rear seats and add lumbar.
