Re: Is the Dash actually Leather

Durable is good.. How should i go about maintaining it leather cleaner and conditioner or just a damp cloth?
BTW Scott your GC looks great I usually don't like cars with black rims but damn yours looks great.

Re: Is the Dash actually Leather

I love this site. I have a '14 Summit and was wondering how to clean the interior as to what was leather and what wasn't.

I'm assuming the seats are leather as well - does that include the backs of the seats too? I know some maunfacturers make the seating areas leather and then put faux leather on the sides and backs. Just curious if Jeep did the same.

Also Scott, do you know where I could order a black grill insert like you have on your SRT? My Summit is white and I'm thinking that would look super on it.

Any help you could give would be appreciated.

I treat my entire seat like leather FYI...so I clean it with blue magic leatehr and vinyl cleaner and then condition wiht the blue magic conditioner cream.

You can get the altitude grille altready painted gloss black from justforjeeps.com Use code jeepgarage5 for 5% more off their already low prices.

They also make a leather and vinyl cleaner that you can use on the entire wk2 interior to clean it. It smells really good! I also find it easy to find at most autpo parts stores like autozone, advanced auto, walmart etc.

Re: Is the Dash actually Leather

I use Lexol products (since we already have it for our saddles and bridles) but something specific for leather care is best. Stay away from stuff with silicones, etc.

Re: Is the Dash actually Leather

If the inside of your windshield gets a light film on it, it is probably the chemicals evaporating.
When dashboards were metal, only cars with smokers got that film.

Appreciate the feedback.

I guess I'll have to wait a while to get black grill insert that will fit the '14 Summits. The only one I could find for Summit's were for the '13.
