Always a fan of leather ... but on new Jeep, I have questions

in a normal car, on a sofa, a chair, whatever i always prefer leather. thats my opinion. but for a Jeep, i notice many people still get leather even though Jeep seats don't live a typical vehicle seat lifestyle.

how do they hold up if they get wet?

wouldn't they get extremely hot if you have the top off or anything like that?

is it worth the extra $$$ for the upgrade?

are leather trimmed seats better option?

i know very few Jeep owners and none of them have leather currently so there is no one else to ask. what does everyone here prefer?

If you like bacon, I guess you can have the leather seats with the top down for a day.

from what i read around the forum, people advise against it due to the heat during the summer. My parents truck has leather seats, and during the summer theres nothing like burning the back of your legs on nice, hot leather

im not sure...but you cant go wrong with fabric. Plus you could always pick up some leather seat covers.
