Lariat package, leather or not? for work use?

How many of you guys use Lariat packages with the leather option as standard and use it daily and get dirty? I dont want a dark interior, so i wouldnt get black leather in the Lariat. Yet the tan looks nice and would stay cooler, HOW THE HECK does it stay clean? I like a lot of the parts of the Lariat package but want the same captains chairs in the normal stiff cloth. My dads got an 03 F150 with this setup, i like it, you dont slide all over the seats and the extended cab seats hold things on it.
I cant see the leather allowing you to throw some light tools etc on them and not flying all over.

Does the leather wear out fast? I have a 91 F150 now with standard old blue cloth tirm in the xlt lariat from almost 15 years ago, a tad worn but still looks nice.

Is the leather really vinyl that can clean up easily or is it real just like a cadillac or something? I know that would be a biatch to clean all the time.

Can i order a fully loaded xlt Lariat at a dealer and get the captains chairs and rear bench seat in the extended cab in the xlt cloth or do they not allow that? I want the white faced gauges !

I got the gray interior and don't get "muddy" and I don't work in the body shop anymore, however it get's plenty of sand, dirt, leaves, stuff like that in it and since it's silver, or light in color it hides it well. I clean my truck about once every 2 weeks... and blow it out about once a month... thats about it.

Got Leather here too Tan (honestly doesn't stay any cooler than any other color), clean and condition regularly and you'll have no issues. Put the rear seat up to haul tools!

I have the tan leather, and I work construction. Gets plenty dirty. Cleans up good, (except for pine gum).

As for the tools and stuff....Its a truck...use the bed.
