2006 super duty seat material?

I was wondering what material the seats are in my 2006 lariat. Are they a real leather or some type of vinal material? Its tan and I'd like to dye/paint it to a dark grey or black. Also any advise on what product to use? Thanks for the help.

Not sure of the correct name, but I call it "pleather", as in a mix of plastic and leather. Only the King Ranch trucks have real leather.

The direct seating surfaces only (where your rear & back touch) are Genuine Leather ... all other areas are vinyl.

as 98Surplus said only on you rear and back is actual leather

it is a pigmented/protected/top coated/painted type leather also known as TYPE-P

you can dye the leather but the rest of the seat that is vinyl will not take a dye, they do make vinyl paint, but again this wont take on very well on the leather parts.

I haven't tried it yet for my project, but I hear good things about Colorbond. It's supposed to work for leather, vinyl, plastic, fiberglass, etc.

I've had good luck with the Color Bond on plastic parts.
