I'm also curious about this? I've thought about installing it myself.. It doesn't look terribly difficult but not practiced in this type of work.

Re: Installed Katzkin leather interior

The base leather kit is around $815, average price installed is around $1400, but that's usually negotiable. For seat heaters, add on another $350. You have some choices for things like stitching and insert design. The OP used black stitching and gathered insert. I used white stitching with gathered insert. Another member has one with a perforated insert.

Looks good OP!

On a Katzkin standard kit:


the seating surface that your butt and back touch on the front seats are leather. The rest is a high quality vinyl.

The rear seats are only leather in the sections where the leather is gathered the rest is high quality vinyl.

So may bawk at this but may OEM seats are done like this.


On the Katzkin premium kit: Starting price for premium is $250 more than standard.

The fronts seats have more leather content.

The rear seat have the seating surface that touches your back and butt in leather and the rest is high quality vinyl.

Re: Installed Katzkin leather interior

It cost me around $400 to have everything recovered at my local upholsterer. I chose the Katzkin premium kit w/o heated seats for $789 on sale, inc shipping.Nothing fancy,I wanted to mimic the oem look that i saw in a Laredo X, i actually like this leather better than the oem imo.
