cloth to leather conversion

Is it as hard as people say it is? i have a cloth 2006 lbz with power drivers and manual. My carheart seat covers for cloth just came in today but I also have the chance to buy all leather seats console and everything for like $600. but i have heard there is lots of wireing. do I install the carheart seat covers i have already or do I do this leather conversion? ( if it makes a difference I am a mechaic)

if you want the heat to work, yea it could be time consuming. then you will need the door panels too. but they should bolt in. im sure the power supply will be different too

I am currently in the middle of doing this. I have the seats, heated seat switches that go in the door panels, and my wiring harness should show up today. I hope this is all I need.

I finished the install yesterday. Between my factory harness and the donor harness I bought off ebay, I was able to get the drivers and passenger 8 way power seats working, and factory heated seat switches working. I had to do some modifications and wiring to make the air bag module work right with no air bag service notification. the only thing that doesn't work, is the memory function. I'm hoping my local dealership can flash that with their computer.

This is sort of a thread-jack, but it's related.
@Mathalika & mods: just say the word, and I'll take this to a new thread.

I'm thinking about going the other way. bought my lbz with leather, thinking about going 6-seats. I don't need it to look OEM, but I do want to keep my power and heated seating. I'm hoping there's a DOT-approved way to get the shoulder strap adjustable (classic '07 has the belt in the seat) and the middle seat to have a shoulder strap...anyone done anything?

Stock except the previous owner put 285/75r16 on it and i added a new double-din head unit.

Just purchased Oct2017, working through some pre-known repairs over the next few months.

Usage: my DD (29m/day), utility trailer, will buy an RV, major "yard work", occassional equipment rental.

Planned changes: Curt 15703 hitch, possibly a goosenech/5th wheel combo depending on RV chosen, probably change out the leather for 6 seats, maybe with a way to get my shoulder strap higher and have a shoulder strap for the front-middle if possible.

Clazzio leather seat covers. I couldn’t justify the $3000 for katskinz on a 13 year old truck. So I had a new bottom foam installed on drivers seat and purchased a set of perforated leather seat covers from Clazzio for ~$680. Also splurged for the seat heater kit. With the interior out of the truck it’s very easy to get these covers on and looking nice. I’m very happy with how it’s going. I’ll post pics once complete.
