Re: WK seats - what do you think?

good luck getting your back seat out! it is a PITA!! the bolts go all the way through to bottom of the car so they are rusted in there. i had a garage remove mine with a stronger impact gun than i owned. they didnt charge me, so that is something you should look into to save some aches and pains. i will do a step by step on replacing the front seat because of the different wires between the different years. for the back seat, just follow this........... http://wkjeeps.com/interior_trim.htm#REARSEAT

Re: WK seats - what do you think?

I hate the seats in my 08 overland. I love the color, I have the saddle brown, but the leather sucks! It's so thin and seems like it would damage easily. The quality of the leather is definitely a disappointment.

Re: WK seats - what do you think?

What is a good price to find a pair of SRT8 seats? Are they a direct replacement or do you have to make some mods for the SRT seats to fit in a 05 WK? Thanks.

I saw a couple sets on ebay this week for $1600 and another set for $1200 I think. Just do a search on ebay motors for "Grand Cherokee Seats" and you should find them.

I miss how snug the seats in my 06 GTI kept me.

If you have a Laredo, then srt seats aren't stock for your vehicle. Getting katzkins or something similar would actually be less dramatic IMO. The srt seats are embroidered at the top, have beefy bolsters bottom and top, and more hamstring support. I thought about katzkins but it would be almost a thousand bucks just for the front row, however they do dealership ordering with Chrysler so they should fit like a glove.

I have the limited leather seats, which are really like 30% leather and the rest vinyl. The vinyl on the driver side is already flaking off so I actually contacted a local upholsterer about a repair. We started talking, and he can actually replace all the vinyl bolster pieces with leather and beef them up with padding like the srt's so I'm not sloshing back and forth in the seat. He quoted me 250-300 per seat, which isn't really bad at all. I'm actually considering putting some ballistic cordura nylon there instead of leather so I'll never have to worry about wear. A local shop might be cost-effective for you too.
