Yes. you can't have a Lariat unless it has leather seats.

You can't have leather seats unless you have a back seat.

You can buy the leather package and install it yourself. I just left my 02 truck have the cloth seats. They're holding up fine, and you don't have to heat them in the winter!

Thanks, everyone.

I really don't know that much about these trucks - we were looking for a Ford or Chevy 3/4 ton to tow an Airstream, and we came across this baby (at the Chevy dealer, no less...) at a price we couldn't refuse. It wasn't precisely what we were looking for, but now that we have it we're thrilled with what we got.

It actually has a gooseneck hitch, too, along with a second 7-pin trailer connector in the bed. At 5 years old with 100,000 miles, gooseneck hitch, and a Rhino liner (or Line-x, I don't know which), it is clearly a truck meant to work, probably towing horse trailers. We weren't fans of the gooseneck ball sticking up in the middle of the bed, and I'm convinced that cost the dealer $5K - but after we got it home, I was looking at it, and I realized that there's a lever you can pull to flip the ball upside down so you have a flat bed again. Now I sometimes forget it even has the gooseneck hitch. (We put a cap on it, so towing a gooseneck trailer would take a little extra work now.)

Anyway, back to the Lariat - it does have leather seats and the Supercab, so everything that was said about that in this thread agrees with what I have. I am a bit surprised (and disappointed!) that it doesn't have the seat heaters, though. Sounds like a good use for two of those upfitter switches.

Here are some pics I took right after we got it. That was pre-cap. Here it is a month or so ago on Skyline Drive, towing our Airstream:

LOL - I just noticed, in the background of one of the pictures, you can see: The '04 Impala we sold shortly after buying the truck, the '91 Airstream B190 we sold last fall (replaced by the trailer), and the '01 Saturn my wife brought into the relationship that we recently replaced due to transmission issues. All three are gone. The only car we had at the time that you can't see in the pictures is the one we still have - my '99 Cougar.

Thanks. We love it. A friend of ours gave my wife driving lessons with the camper, so she did some of the driving on our trip to Disney back in January, and plans to do some driving of it tomorrow on our way to an Airstream rally.

I have this awesome picture of her driving the rig from the Disney trip. Pay no attention to the speedo.

Nice! I have always loved airstreams!

The seat heaters were an extra cost option. The controls actually mount to the seat near the power controls. Should be a pretty easy retrofit.

Glad to meet you RJ.

We have a Jayco Discovery here, but it hasn't left the yard since I got hurt last year. Maybe next summer, I'll be able to take 'er for a spin again!
