I like my "SRT" seats too!!!

Re: WK seats = JUNK!

btw - forgot to ask, regarding the "SRT" seats...did they come in any color other than black? Not that it would look *bad*, but would be nice if it came in a lighter greyish color to match existing. Well, not that I can afford anything like that for the Jeep just yet (too many other projects )

Speaking of the WK seats, I put some more leather softener/conditioner and that really helps the feel. I want to try leatherique one of these days, as it's supposed to work well. Just avoid those cheap "shiny" sprays; they seem to build up a waxy, cheap feeling surface and reminds me of the dealer details, where they think everybody likes amor-all everywhere, ugh!

JeepnJeep, Thanks! that's my DD when it's not motorcycle weather here in MI. Might sell off the bumper one of these days and get a new one from JCR offroad.

the 06-07 seats are medium slate grey and the 08-10's are dark slate grey. Check my threads for the medium slate grey....its a light grey

Re: WK seats = JUNK!

I kinda know what you mean. I've sat in the WK Limited at my dealer and thought the seats were dead firm and uncomfortable compared to the WJ. I figured they'd wear better though as there is less movement creating less cracking over time and you'd get used to it.

Must admit though the S-Line has awesome seats - very comfortable!

Sorry to keep this off topic, but glad to hear that, thanks. Although I need to stay away from you cause you keep tempting me to spend $$$ btw - I did a quick search under your name, but haven't been successful yet...You have any pics and/or about how much they cost? Doubt they'd match the back good enough to save some $, either, ha ha

Re: WK seats = JUNK!

So the seats in the the S-Limited come in what colors exactly? I hate the seats that came in my 06 Laredo, but I don't know how well I can match up that horrible khaki interior color.

Re: WK seats = JUNK!

Funny... when I had my Charger SRT 8, the seat would give me the hip pointer he is mentioning. I really didn't like them all that much. The side thingy was cool for fast cornering but other than that, I didn't smill all the time I was in it. have pulled 3200 miles 4 times so far in trips to and from AZ and the WK seats don't really bug me at all.
