Got any photos of the finished product?
I'd have to dig through the archives. I have since upgraded to Scheel-Mann's!!!

I highly recommend the Katskin kits for the 80 series. Great quality and well fitting product, I find it superior to stock. I absolutely do not recommend L-seats, simply not worth the apparent savings, inferior product and customer service is terrible if you have any problems.
I checked Katskin's site the other day and there wasn't an option for Land Cruiser.

I'll say this again, Lseat.com is garbage. The covers are leather but the quality is crap. Customer Service? they don't have any.

History: I installed Lseat leather on my front seats in 2017 right before our great American road trip to Arizona. The leather was soft and supple and convinced me that $300 was all that anyone needed. The new leather made the road trip that much more enjoyable. Fast forward to 2020, right before the pandemic, and I'm noticing cracks in the leather. The passenger seat is getting crispy even with legal tint on the side glass and a windshield cover. There's wear on the edges closest to the doors and the color is coming off. 2021 and the leather is toast and now I'm looking at threads like this for replacement leather.

Mosley is my first choice. Do it right the first time.

What model are those and options? Where did you purchase? And did it add a significant amount of leg room? I’m 6’1” and it’s brutal on long drives. They look great.
Hit up @Delta VS Dave. He's a distributor. He can go over all the options. There's quite a few. I got mine fully loaded with heated seats, arm rest and map pockets. Mine are the R model. Leg room is absolutely incredible. I'm 6'8" but legroom for rear passengers is tight to say the least. So depending on that situation you may need to pull them forward a bit to make some way. I've been in these seats for 12+ hours at a time and had absolutely no issues. Complete comfort.

Thanks for all the responses team @dirtfinder did you put Katzkin (katskin to help with search) seat covers in your LX?

Anyone put Katzkin covers in their LX450? I think that's what I'm going to do, and common sense tells me that the FZJ80 covers are EXACTLY the same as an LX, but wanna see if anyone has put them into their LX, which I'm sure someone has!

OEM Pattern is different on a LC VS LX450. However the one Katzkin should fit either one. However it does not replicate either factory pattern, if that matters to you.

Yes, Katskin in the LX, its listed for sale if you want to see pics. Its the 1997 with 2uz swap. And as noted, lx and lc are different seat covers and cushions. The covers I have are specific to the lx.

So I actually bought a new bottom cushion from Toyota so that'll be good. I suspect there's no material difference to the LX bottom cushion so I'll likely just re-use the passenger side seat bottom cushion.

I'm going to get the Katzkin set for the FZJ and get 'er done...

Let your intended use of the vehicle be your guide. And your risk factor for MI and or CVA the next time you get in the driver seat with a screwdriver in your back pocket or your dog does a burnout on the second row lower cushion prior to taking a nap.
