Katzkin leather
 
Hi. In getting ready to get Katzkin leather interior kit installed. Anybody have any experience with it? Does it look nice? I should have bought the GC fully loaded but was trying to do the right thing and save money. Now I am totally regretting my decision. This is my first car with cloth interior and I hate it. Any thoughts on the aftermarket leather would be appreciated. Thanks.

Never used it, but I have heard that it is top notch

Thanks Hemi05. I'm getting mine done right after Christmas. They quoted me $1400. I don't think that included the heated seats though. Are you getting the heating elements? It will be slightly cheaper if I get the leather kit from eBay. Can buy for 749. Also what are you getting? The Limited/gathered?

I would assume the 1400 includes installation...My Jeep has factory heat, so I'll be re-using those. My jeep also has the factory two tone light/dark gray leather. I am installing Katzkin Tuscany with Suede inserts (similiar to SRT seats) Dark Body / Light centers. I have a picture of one of the rears that the installer sent me, I'll upload it later.

Looks great. Love the color combo. Eases my mind a little bit to see it and hear that others are doing it.
