Hey everyone. Ordered katzkin leather for my truck. Loved the look of the Mojave grey leather and wanted to lighten up the interior, so I went with the cement grey with the Jeep grille logo in the front seats. Getting used to the change and wanted your opinions. Not bad for $1700 installed.Shout out to sew unique in Smyrna who was one of the recommended katzkin installers in my area.

For $1700 it's well worth not dishing out for an upper trim level. Will be doing this on my 24 for sure. Any difference in comfort?

Just got them installed Monday. First impression is that the seats feel fuller, not stiff but more padded. They have softened up a bit in a couple of days, and the leather is starting to tighten. Love that if you get the jeep approved logo stitched then the seats come with a Mopar katzkin label. The match is so close that I really think katzkin makes the factory leather that comes in the gladiators.

In my experience katzkin is more padded and softer than OEM leather.

Did it still feel that way after a few months? I self installed, and seats felt the same after a bit. Just curious on the different Katkin lines.

I sat in oem leather quite recently before my install, but haven't in a long time so it's hard to say.

I really think there isn’t any difference between katzkin and Mopar leather. I’ve compared them both, and Mopar makes a leather option that can be installed at the factory and purchased through parts after the sale. I did a lot of zooming in on pics of the Mojave grey oem leather option, and the color and grain look almost exact to what I had installed.

Looks great and a value IMO at $1,700.

Do you install these on top of leather?
