    Has anyone put different seats in their truck? The stock seats are crap and they just don't fit me. I also wouldn't mind having power seats. I put some Ram SRT10 in my other truck and love em.

    The seat swap is difficult because the passenger seat turns on the air bag.

    In theory, you could disassemble the seat to pull the sensors out of it, then put it in whatever you wanted. Ricarro seats are interesting. Seen them in a Taco

    I like the front seats. The back seats I wouldn't mind swapping for something better

    Matching buckets in the back would be cool.

    Some nice recaros or Brides would be pretty cool, but who likes the airbag issues that come along with a seat swap. I would rather re-upholster the inside wtih black leather anyway, im not a fan of gray interiors (or anything but black)

    x2 I have done with plenty as well with prior driver seat swaps. Passenger's side it is usually just a matter of relocating the "pressure" sensor/box underneath the new seat...at least it has been in all of my prior cars.

    ...and if you need quality affordable brackets ---> http://wedgebrackets.com/toyota-tacoma-05-seat-brackets.html.

    They have made my brackets for number of previous cars. They can customize them as well for extra $$$ (or at least they have done in the past)

    So anyone else have the issue with water stains on the front seat?
    I'd be interested in wrapping my seats as well anyone else done it before? Anyone change the back seats out for something else?

    That's what double was saying. The "covers" replace the stock fabric. Take seats out. Peel off factory seats and re install the leather ones
