    OK. Here’s my next “Ima Gonna”. I’d like to have leather seat covers installed on my JKU. Have seen some advertising for Katzkin and others. Black or charcoal gray, maybe a silver or light gray insets, with white stitching.

    I’m in SE Texas, if that helps. Any suggestions?

    If you want the best look at Katzkin leather car seats. IMO bit pricy but better overall quality than OEM. Unless you can find some leather Jeep seats in the pull-part places......One vender: https://www.carid.com/katzkin/

    I've installed Katzkin, but not in a Jeep. It's a great product.

    Think hard about leather in a Jeep though, IMO bartact covers are a better solution.

    Good luck!

    Yaassss. I love the look of leather. But I try to look at certain things with a ummmm....without getting my ass burned. A. Buddy at work has a 15 GC. Loves them in the winter. Puts a towel over them in the summer so he doesn't get 3rd degree burns. :eek:.

    It’ll be hot for sure. My GMC 2500 has leather too. For me, leather is more comfortable. I can shift my weight around without sinking down into it, which to me, makes it hotter. Leather is easier to keep clean, especially from dust (hate the way the black cloth seats look brown or gray)
