    That sounds like a custom job to me. I haven't heard of any kits to recover with leather. I know some Amish craftsmen in Ohio that can do just about anything with leather, not sure if thats in your wheelhouse or not.

    A friend of mine bought the "KatSkins" seat covers (leather) for his ext cab f150 and they looked and fit great. I would recomend them just on his experience. Other than that, it may well be a "custom" job. Good luck!

    I have the Katzkin seat covers in my truck and I love them. My truck is a crew cab, and had the front and rear seats done for $1,000 out the door. They are basically high priced seat covers, but they are very high quality!

    Another thumbs up for "Katskinz" I've used them on a few vehicles. They cost a little more but the fit and finish is great, wear is good, and if you do have a problem customer service handles it fast and friendly.

    Default have you tried this

    EBAY, click on the leather kits on ebay and if you dont find the one you are looking for. contact the seller, they can make you what you want. very food prices too.

    I actually have a buddy who wanted leather in his 06 Dodge Ram. He looked around and got quotes from auto uphosterers and everything. Finally he decided to get creative. He started calling junkyards and came across one that sold him the front and back seats for 600 bucks which was much better than the 1500 quote from the uphostery shop. Not to mention a little bit of luck. I tried doing the same thing for my Silverado with no luck, but you never know. It's worth a try.

    I got lucky with mine...I found a set on ebay a few months back. They came out of a wrecked truck. I can tell b/c the seatbelts were locked up and there were glass fragment in some of the nooks and crannys. You might get lucky. I know they sell leather kits on ebay. They're around $400-500 last time I saw them.
