Anyone install Katzkins ?
I am considering seat covers for my Laredo. Anyone have an opinion on Katzkins ? Looks like about $900 for front and rear (two tone/perforated). Color suggestions for a gray interior ?

Ive installed KATZKINS in my old jeep wrangle.r. 2007, added heated seats.. it was pure 'perfect' ! fit and finish is better than expected.

I got a full set.. from E-bay. for like 75.00 bucks.. took me a few hours to install. hog ties etc. (no special tools) and I sold my jeep cloth skins on forums for 75.00 bucks.. so it was a free upgrade.

Check it out, I think they 'katzkins' has colors, extra etc.. they post on Ebay.

in the end the fit and finish is amazing, and you will have stronger fingers.

**remove each seat, bring inside etc.. you cannot do this inside the jeep** my 4 door wrangler sahara had side airbags in the seats.. make sure you get the right covers for your jeep.. also.. this company makes seat covers for chrysler.. quality product.

Does anyone know what color the gray console cover lid is in a Geystone 2012 Laredo ? Does it match a standard Katzkin color ?

ps Ones I see on ebay are $750 not $75.

As always, ebay is a cr@pshoot. I bought a set for my previous vehicle for around $300 with shipping. Generally, you will find lower prices when you find sets that were purchased by end-users but never installed, or by installing dealers that bought multiple sets on spec and have left-over inventory for aging models they wish to liquidate.

Those covers look better than the factory leather!

The Katzkins? They ARE! Wish I had thought about that before I ordered my Overland w/Saddle.

I guess I was just tired of constantly modding my last vehicle (factory power-retracting antenna, upgraded factory sound system, leather, LED rear lights, voice-dialing/bluetooth-streaming via factory sound system, upgraded dual-visors, etc).

Of course, now I have a bag of hog-rings and the pliers left over, with nothing to do....

If you are not sure what color combo you want go ahead and order the swatch book for $20 you can get them from most vendors that sell Katzkins

this is where I ordered my set from....

Also the covers for the WK2 don't use hog rigs so don't bother buying them.
