Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

Just had mine done at the same panel spot, 250$ cdn, just find an upholstery shop and stop panicking and wasting your time in junkyards lol. He added leather because he said it would last longer. I was surprised when he told me they were vinyl, I think vinyl on the side parts of the seats, not sure.

Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

I have an 09 limited with two tone leather/suede. I have a few cracks just like that in the same spot. I hate it, because I see it every time I get in or out the jeep . Cant find any srt8 seats around NYC.

Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

I have an 06 Laredo with almost 130k miles, and no cracks or wear lines in my leather. I use Lexol Leather products to clean and condition all the seats on a regular basis, for me this has worked wonders.

Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

My drivers seat has creases but no crack yet. My thinking is to swap the drivers side seat with the passenger side seat before the crease turns to a crack. Probably do that his summer assuming it can be done.

Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

My 2005 Limited has the same 'leather' package, which turns out to be just the center panels, typical Chrysler corp corner cutting, what do you expect, just like the trail badge on one side!!
