Re: Katzkin leather

I've never seen it in person but all reviews say its the highest quality aftermarket leather replacement... it had better be for the price!! super expensive stuff right there

Re: Katzkin leather

Yea I remember for the mustang which was an extremely small vehicle in comparison it was going to cost me a shinny penny. Like anything though you get what you pay for.

Re: Katzkin leather

My buddy is a katzkin dealer i have installed a few of these covers..I know usually front and rear seats it usually ran the customer about 950-1500 depending and what type of vehicle, pattern , leather type and stitching.. Then another 500-700 for install but don't quote me on that .

They are beautiful seat covers. You can do them yourself you just need a nice set of Hog ring pliers and hog rings . When you take your old seats apart you will see how they go back together . Or you can take them to your local upholstery shop .

I'mnot sure but i remember hearing something that katzkin makes the jeep leather seats?

I bought the Limited/gathered. It's the exact same that I saw in the Limited GC. I paid $800 for my Katzkin from ShopSar. I didn't get the add on piping or logos.

Re: Katzkin leather

i had mine installed by a dealer doin it again id probably try myself it doesnt seem too difficult, i know the one problem area is the head rests. the installers have a tool that like shrinks the foam so the leather fits over nicely, doin it yourself you have to fiddle with it and stuff

how did the side bolsters hold up on the katzkin seat cushion? this is where the factory seats crack.

Yay! My Katzkin came yesterday. Install the Wednesday after Christmas. I didn't order the seat heaters because I can't afford it but the invoice had a warning on it I couldn't install heat on passenger seat because of some sensor. Guess it was a good thing. I will take pictures of it when I open the box up.

Re: Katzkin leather

I used to install Katskinz for a shop and its amazing quality but some times a PITA to install if you dont know what you are doing. You wont be Disappointed.

Re: Katzkin leather

When I bought my 2010 Fusion my wife wanted leather but the car that we decided we were going to buy didn't have it. We got the dealership to install Katzkins leather as part of the deal. I couldn't be happier with it. Very good quality and no wear yet in the year and half we have owned the car.
