Anyways I'm just saying that the Limited seats would look better IMO, because it would match his interior better. AND putting SRT seats in a V6 WK that have the "SRT" logo on them is like putting a 5.0L fender badge on a fox body Mustang that has a 4-banger under the hood. And i knew someone who did that LOL!
After all the Limited seats are comfy, durable, great looking and they don't stain like cloth, which is the issue that this guy has with his seats. I'm just offering suggestions as it will be a lot easier to find Laredo, Limited, or Overland leather seats at a wrecker than it will be to find SRT.
It will definately be easier, i sold my old leather (vinyl) seats for $200 to another member on here. The stock seats cause you to slide around alot, that is why i like the srt seats. They have suede and better bolsters on the sides

Re: I hate our seats!!!!! Ahh!!!

yep their custom made for the specific seats you have, they have the back seat with the tray in the middle too, im pretty sure but my truck just did come with that back seat unfortunately (although our commander has that back seat and the middle one is super uncomfortable because the cup holder makes it the back rest super hard)

i had mine installed by a katzkin installer but if i did it again id probable do it myself. they take the place of your current seat covers, meaning that you take off the cloth seat exposing the foam under it and the katzkins then get installed back on replacing the oem seat covers. instillation seems not terribly hard and youll save a ton of money doing it yourself. the only part that seems like a pain is the headrest because its a tight fit to get over it, the installers have some vacuum thing that sucks the foam in the headrest in so the cover slips over it but there is a method to get it over if i remember right. this is the video i watched to learn how to install them, wish i would have seen it before i paid to have it done
