    Now that most of my mechanical upgrades are done... I am looking at focusing in the interior. Has anyone done a leather conversion to your seats? If so did you do it yourself? I am a do it yourself guy... and really like the katzkins products but do not know if they sell the kits to anyone who is not a licensed installer.

    Also, what is everyones thoughts/experiences with leather seat covers? do they fit snuggl

    Ive used Katzkins and a few other brand replacement seat skins on a vehicles, my preference is Katzkins.
    They always fit correctly, Ive never had a bad fit with them.
    Quality and wear has aleays been superior to other kits.
    The only complaint I have is price, but I guess you have to pay for quality.

    Tom......x2 on going with Katzkin, I Bought and Installed my Katzkin Interior for my Truck last year, and I Could Not Be Any More Pleased with the Fitment of this Interior...and the ease of the install.

    Looks like they do very good quality stuff, just did some surfing on the web and came across quite a few happy customers, looks like a great install below.

    Had these on a CJ7 that I had in High school they worked great on keeping water off the seat. Fitment was good also with the top off all the times it helped keeping the seat somewhat cool the jeep had those old vinyl seats that were hot as hell when the sun would just touch it for 5 mins.This was 20 years ago dont know about how quality is now

    I have not laid hand on the katzkin yet, anyone know what mill the leather is, they do look like the best offering out there at this time. also the side air bags are still operable if I am thinking correctly? They cost some bucks, but they are on my truck bucket list.
