Hellcat/392 Red/Black Seat Covers?

I really wanted a red interior with my GC, but the closest thing to that is the Red Vapor edition which is a bit expensive compared to what I paid for my Jeep, plus I'd get killed on trade.

The red interior of the Chargers and Challengers look way better too. The seats look REALLY similar... think it'd be possible to just buy the seat covers and swap them in? If not I guess I could always try to get the Red Vapor covers, even though they don't look nearly as good.

Why not get custom Katzkin leather? It's higher quality then OEM and you can get any color under the sun.

From what I see on their website, they don't even offer anything specific for the SRT. Looking at the Laredo options, it screams bland design. The leather may be better quality, but I'm not a huge fan of the look. Maybe they have more designs somewhere else I'm missing?

Give the a call. They can do anything you want and Even add embroidery's.
Also check out Alea leather.
Alea Leather - Best in Industry, OEM/ Customizable Leather Seat Cover, Premium Italian Leather

Almost every custom leather you see is done with one of the above's products.

Alea leather looks like a Chinese based company, so I don't know if I want to go down that road. I sent Katzkin an email, but they don't even list the SRT GC as an option.

The Red Vapor edition seats are out - well over $2,000 for both seat covers alone.

I found the proper codes for the 392/HC red seat covers, along with the foam. Depending on the parts I'd need, it'll run anywhere between $900 to $1,500~. Question is, would the foam base/back fit onto the frame of our seats without a problem? I'd like to think so, but hard to say...

You say Alea looks like it's Chinese based but do you know where the OEM Jeep leather comes from?
The Jeep product is garbage compared to was it used by Alea or Katzkin.

I'm not saying they're bad quality, but right from their website - "Alea Leather Specialist is a subsidiary company of Sunguard Group of Hong Kong."

I'm not trying to deal with poor English speakers to create a design I want. In fact, I want a clone of what the SRT seats currently are. I don't know if they specifically have a US based office or not, but I'll look into it.

EDIT: So I called and the US office is definitely a US office, but I still question whether or not they can replicate the Hellcat/392 design. I have never been so enticed by a seat before...

Any decent upholstery shop can can replicate a design if you're willing to pay for it.

I hope so because the designs on the sites are not too appealing to me.

Called a local guy who does Alea - thinks they should be able to replicate. Should be getting back to me next week. Plus I'll have front and back! I'm stoked.
