    Default Convert leather to cloth seats

    I have a 97 suburban that I am trying to make more comfortable and it is LT trim with the leather seats. I am thinking of replacing them with cloth since the leather is cracked and is cold in the winter. Since the front seats have all the electric positioning, do I need a cloth seat with the same features?

    If I was you I would look at getting electric heat installed in them. My father's last Tahoe had it and we both miss it severely. When we would wake up early mornings to go hunting, we'd start the truck up and let it run for 5 mins with the heat and seats on. I have cloths seats but wish mine were leather.

    Look at Katzskin, in addition to leather they have cloth seat replacements, their one of the best on the market.
    As far as the electric positioning it shouldnt affect the seat cover much at all, as long as the new covers are for the same style seat you should be good.
