What you doing next?
Probably adding ATC and either the Altitude headlamps or the SRT headlamps may just do the Altitudes and call it a day as I like the black bezels in the Alt's housing.

Re: Overland grille and katzkin leather

Nice! Did you upgrade your climate control to the auto with the integrated heated seat buttons?

Re: Overland grille and katzkin leather

Looks great. I upgraded mine to full leather, two tone, white stitching, for $875 installed here in Jersey (the regular leather not Tuscany or heated seats). 2 years later still look like new. I believe they are charging $975 now. I have referred a lot of people.

Re: Overland grille and katzkin leather

Yes. They order the covers from Katzkin in California and install them.

Re: Overland grille and katzkin leather

Just want to re-iterate that the base level Katzkin ($895) uses synthetic leather for the seating and back surfaces and real leather for the side bolsters only. You will have to upgrade to their mid or upper level products for 100% leather -- which is what the OP did and why his package cost alot more.

Scooterha- Wondering where you decided to mount the seat heater switches and if you went w/ the Katzin seat heaters or the MOPAR heaters. I picked up a automatic climate control with the factory heated seat buttons and I going to try and retrofit the Katzkin heaters to the OEM switches... Wondering what your solution was...

The place here in Chas WV did an awesome job. has really made me gain a new respect for my vehicle. I loved it before, even more now.

I did tons and tons of research on this and the wiring got complicated. So I went to a friend who is an electrical engineer and she said not even to mess with it. So I just had them install the katzkin brand seat heaters.

Zolt the wiring and everything got wayyyy complicated to try to wire the seats to a ATC w/hs. They are the Katzkin seat heaters and I had them mount the button the side of the seats. I did not want to clutter anything up in the dash or around the cup holders with more buttons. I will take some more pics today. I need to clean my slush mats I will take some pics after i get those cleaned up!
