Black Leather with Graphite Interior (YES or NO)

I'm in the process of waiting on a Magnetic Gray Metallic 2013 Crewmax TSS Off-Road edition due to arrive in 3 weeks. (The truck has all the options that I wanted already installed except it's missing leather).

The interior is Graphite (meaning it's gray)

The Dealership is going to order the leather for me and send it out to be installed once the truck arrives.

He stated I can choose whatever color I want. I want Black Leather.

Problem is (if there really is a problem), this truck has Graphite Interior and not Black Interior.

So will it look weird/out of place if I have black leather with a graphite interior?

Based on all the pictures that I've seen online - the only part that may look out of place is the base of the front driver and passenger seats.

I believe with a Graphite interior the base (plastic) part of the two front seats will be gray as appose to a Black Interior where the base of the front seats will be black.

Also the truck has the SR5 package - so it will be bucket seats with the huge center console. Question - is the lid/top of that center console wrapped in leather or is it just plastic?

If it's plastic then more likely it will be gray in color - now that would look totally stupid with black leather seats and the center console top be gray.

I'm going to stop by the dealership tonight and take a look at some of the Crewmax on the lot and see firsthand if Black Leather with Graphite interior will work. But until then - any ideas?

Also I believe all the plastic on the dash/door are all the same regardless if the interior is Graphite or Black correct?

It's mainly the carpet and seat covers that determines the interior color - right?

Another option is to wait and see if they can get the exact same truck but with Black Interior but I'm still driving my Trade-In car (2007 BMW 335i - Fully Loaded 6-Speed )and want to complete this transaction quickly as they gave me an awesome deal on my trade in and the truck for that fact (Almost $8K of MSRP)

I have graphite interior with black/red Clazzio. The interior is not entirely graphite but mixture of graphiite/gray/black. It has enough black to make it work. I also have black Husky WeatherBeater.

I think that all black would look fine, however, in-line with what chphilo said, two tone leather would probably look better. Here is a pic of mine to give you an idea of Grey/Black.

I say get what you will be happy with or you will regret your decision. I think all black on most colors would look great. Only bad thing about black is that it gets hot if you dont have dark tint.

I think it will look fine. A lot of the body panels, etc. will be black. Carpets might be black as well.

I just got a '12 Crewmax and it has the Graphite Leather interior and there's still plenty of black in the truck.

I plan on putting black leather in my truck too so post pics when you do it!!

They are both Clazzio leather seat covers. Several places sell them, including TRDSparks which is a site sponsor and excellent vendor. No matter where you order them though, you can expect to wait about 8-12 weeks to get them.

Just came back from the Dealership - looked at several Crewmax with Black Interior and Graphite Interior.

They had some Graphite Interior with Gray Leather and Gray Cloth and Black Cloth.

None had Black Leather (I think that's only available on the Platinium Package)

I think all Black Leather may work just fine - But will also consider Gray Leather as option 2. I still have about two more weeks until the Crewmax is here so plenty of time to search the internet for picutes.

Thanks All.

I've noticed that the two with black on black that their center console lid is also black and most part of their door are black.

I'm just afraid that if I go all black leather with the center console and part of the doors being Gray may not flow right??

Black Leather with Graphite Interior (YES or NO)

I've thought the same thing if/when I put leather in mine. I'll probably hit the junkyards and try to find a black lid in like new condition. If I can then I'll probably go for black. If not probably a grey/black combo on the seats. I'm looking forward to your results.
