    The dealer just called. He has a 2017 TRD PRO with leather interior coming in before my TRD PRO that was ordered with cloth seats comes in. How will leather hold up to my surf fishing trips? Is it actually more durable if cared for properly? It might be more comfortable in the winter (heated seats). Thanks for your feedback. Rick

    If you have pets or kids and have the option for leather would do it - IMO leather cleans up easier vacuuming wiping down, pet stains, food, sand just gets ground into the cloth seats. If you take care of leather it will take care of you.

    From 1960-67 I owned a British Riley 1.5 with leather upholstery and that stood up to dogs, cats, mud, blood and shite with no problem. I'd take real leather over the imitation leather in our 4R Trail, but only if the quality was top notch However, there are many different grades of leather and, in the meantime, the imitation seems to be doing fine. - Ted

    The more I look at the brochure, the more I believe leather is not an option on the TRD PRO. I may end up not having the choice
