I am looking for a good set of seat covers. Not because the cracking is so bad, but because I get dirty out in the woods and I would rather plop my dirty behind on an easy to clean seat cover than the nice leather. I was looking at SOR and I only saw the Tuff duck seat covers. Are those the ones you have?Skillet said:Nice ride.
Mine has leather and I put some ballistic nylon seat covers on them from SOR, due to cracks. Love them, easy to clean, custom fit and very stain resistant.
They make them for all rows of seats and they color match. Just an idea.

I've looked at my truck for this, too. There is an 'L' bracket on the front of my air plenum that looks like it could be for a second cable. I don't have cruise, so maybe that's it's intended purpose. Anyway, I wonder if it just bypasses the pedal completely and pulls the throttle body butterfly directly? I may certainly be misunderstanding how the hand throttle works on the Cruiser, too. I would expect that a Hilux would have a hand throttle option pretty commonly, since they are used often as commercial trucks that might have accessories. I dunno, maybe not.Brian894x4 said:I wondered the same and looked at my '89 truck. There's a hole in the dash as well. But I didn't see any bracket on the pedal or near the pedal that would make it an easier bolt on like on the Cruiser. Tonight, I'm going to do a short write up for my site and I'll take some pictures so you can see what it looks like.
I'm just not sure if the mounts are an integrated part of the pedal or bolt on to the pedal. There's another another bracket that mounts near the pedal and I didn't see that on my truck either. That's probably just a bolt on part.
Worst case, the cable, the bracket and possibly a new gas pedal is all that should be needed if one could source the parts from a foreign Toyota pick-up/4runner. I'm not sure how popular the hand throttle was on overseas trucks, though.

Just some interesting reading on the topic...
