Well I spent the last 2 days looking for a staple gun that would accommodate 4mm leg staples. I figured that is what I would need to do the console lid. Finally found a gun and staples on Amazon for relatively cheap. Then I went out to measure my console lid thickness. I decided to take out some of my JT21 6mm staples with me and I'll be damned, they will work. All that fuss for nothing. I just hope the seller on the Katzkins is wrong when he said they are black with white stitching. The box shows black with stone stitch and the console cover is black with stone. I think they will match up perfectly. I'll know for sure on Tuesday.

Also got TRS to warranty my 7443 LED bulb, but doubt I ever install it. Seems to be a sub-par product.

You're going to love the Katzkins. I hope the color is what you're wanting. I ordered mine off of ebay and they couldn't get here quick enough. I don't even think the UPS guy was back in the truck before I was tearing my truck apart.

Katzkins are here! I'll post pics but not sure they will show. The stitching is tighter and a little lighter than my center console cover, but after the seats are covered, I'll give it a go. These things are thick and paddded!

Nice...Those look to be the same style as mine with the perforated center panel. I think that's an upgrade.

Those look nice. I just did mine and I was very impressed with the quality and thickness. You'll be pleased.

They are definitely black John. As stated, they are well padded and perforated. If that's an upgrade, then the $450 price seems pretty good.
