Leather seats

Postby AJM21 on Sat, 27 Jun 2020 6:11 +0000

Hi

I have a 2019 hilux SR. Love it and it’s serving me well.

I spend a lot of time in Piggeries and the cloth seats with canvas covers retain the smell.

My wife is now making serious requests that I get leather seats to reduce the smell!

Does anyone know of a source of leather seats that I can retrofit?

Regards

Andrew

I should add that it’s a dual cab. Ideally would get all seats (wrecker) but just fronts would do the trick.

Thanks in advance

Obviously the leather SR5 seats would be a plug and play (seatbelt dash lights etc.) but I don't know if the wiring harness will connect the electronic seat adjustment. Likely easy to find from a wreckers, so just check with your local Toyota dealer re wiring.

I'm currently also looking to change my SR seats as I'm 6'4 and the stock aren't the best ergonomics. I'm considering some aftermarket sports seats or some Toyota 86 seats which are more supportive, so if anyone has done I'm also keen to learn.

I’m 6’5” and fitted a Recaro Ergomed. Worth every cent. Makes getting in and out harder but easy once you know how.

Connected the Recaro airbag up to the Hilux harness using a donor plug off a crashed Camry seat.

I bet that's made a difference HK1837!

I've read that Recaro have sliders to fit most vehicles (?) which is good. Also interested in air bag, although I'm not too fussed on having air bag in mine... (Expert L is on my short list)

Has anyone got experience with these?

They look cheap. Is this just because they don’t have a retailer margin on them?

There are a number of aftermarket kits available to auto trimmers
I had mine done here in NZ, but not cheap

Id go this route. Personally i dont like the factory leather seats. ( i have the pre perforated type)
Get a trimmer......Maybe i dont like them because with the factory leather option it means electic power seat.
It just sux
