Well got my seats done up today. Couldn't pick it up until after dark because of other commitments but I took some night pictures of it. Absolutely lovin' them. I got the black with olive wings and Olive stitching, that's as close as I could come color wise to matching the gator. I'll take some day shots tomorrow.

Katzkin is amazing! Nice color combination! Once I get some other commitments taken care of, I'll be looking at replacing my cloth with them. I installed them myself on my previous Chevy Colorado and made a huge difference.

Thanks. They do fantastic work for sure.
Yep, I was real impressed with it. Looks and smells factory. Only took my installer like 4hrs to complete.

We also went with the olive stitching. Very close match to the Gator color. We purchased them at Jeep Invasion and ended up driving back over to Knoxville to have them installed. We made a weekend trip out of it. It was the middle of October in the smokies so we had a great weekend.

Is the Katzkin an upgrade over factory leather? Do I get a quote directly through the Katzkin website?

I'm not sure how factory leather is in a Jeep I've never had it but the Katzkin leather is of equal quality to my Wife's 2017 BMW X5 50i and I consider it to be high quality. Also yes you would go through the website or contact them directly. Also ask if they have any promos. Mine would of been $2300 if I didn't get the 20% off promo for the custom. The regular just solid color is like $1725 I think. Best to build what you like on the website then contact them to get the best price and once you lock in what you want they will set you up with a installer in your area.

Looks great! Love the color combo.

Did you do heated or no heated? Or if not, did you get a price on adding heat? I'm planning on adding leather and not sure if heat is worth it or not here in NC. Any input appreciated!

I didn't do do the heated option because honestly I don't think I need it in NC, especially in the Charlotte area. We have heated and cooled seats in BMW but I rarely have used them. Had both in my 2017 mustang 5.0 and never used them either.

It's $500 a seat to add the heated option so if you did the front your looking at a $1000 add on. They gave me the price because they try to get you to add it. I didn't ask about heated and cooled price but both are available. Didn't seem worth the extra $1000 to me, especially in NC. We probably have seen our coldest days over the last week or so, you know how it is here. 8° with a high of 22° a week aga and Monday it will be close to 70°.

I did add the heated option for both front seats. My installer in Knoxville did them both for $500. I had them put the Rocker switches on the knock out panel in front of the gear shifter. Hidden but easily accessible.
