Katzkins Installed...

Justs wanted to say a big thank you to the guys over at Katzkins...They have been great helping us out with both our 2 and 4 door projects. Here's a few pics to give you an idea of what they can do...

Genuine rawhide lol...Our seats were done in leather. They also make them out of Tuscany, Suedezkin, Exotics and Barracuda...google their name and you'll see all the options.

These are covers for the stock seats. You would need to remove the factory covers to install them...I do not have pricing on them but if you look up their web page or give them a call I'm sure they can quote you...

I wondered where you got those but forgot to ask when I saw you.... those are the best looking covers that I have seen. I like that yours have the Jeep logo on them.

Were they a PITA to install and $700 was for the front two, right?

$700. is a great price. This was the least expensive place I had found http://www.autoseatskins.com/Jeep-Wrangler-s/325.htm $750. for front and rears. The install is not hard once you figure it out. And you do have to figure it out since no install instructions are provided. They assume they are being installed by a shop. Took me a few hours for the first seat then less than 45 min for the rest. They really are not hard to install once you get into it.

And you are going to crawl into those seats covered in stinking bottom mud after you have pulled yourself out of the place you got stuck last time????

They look great. Look like the wifes Cherokee Limited seats. Not in my "Lucy".

Actually the leather cleans up easier than the cloth from mud and dust. Worrying about getting the seats dirty is like worrying about a little pin stripe on the shinny paint.

If they clean up then no problem. They look great. I may have to reconsider. Lucy would look fine in black leather.

I saw a Sahara at the Dealer today with the KatSkins pre-installed ... katSkins is even listed on the window sticker. They looks GREAT in person ...
