Best Jeep Leather UV Protector

I want to protect the "premium" leather on my Jeep when the top is off and was wondering what you guys used to UV protect your leather from the sun.

I guess going along with this question is a question about Jeep's premium leather. Is it finished or unfinished leather?

Thanks guys

All automotive leather is "finished" but it is a living thing...so it does degrade. You can maintain it with a quality leather conditioner like Lexol which will keep it hydrated, but if you are running topless all summer, the best idea would be to get some nice seat covers.

I have heard good things about Lexol cleaner and conditioner, so I will definitely look into that. DO you guys know of any UV protectants. I dont really like the idea / look of the seat covers I have seen.

+1 for Lexol.

No need for UV protectants if you keep the leather well conditioned. Save that stuff for the plastics/vinyl, and use 303 Aerospace

Lexol does have UV protection in it, so that's what I would recommend.

My wife uses the Lexol on her fancy seats. She loves it. She always keeps her vehicles spotless. When I got her the Lexol cleaner and conditioner she had already had her Jeep for a year and was using a different product. When she used the cleaner, she thought it was going to be a waste because her seats weren't dirty. Boy was she surprised how much stuff was on the rag. Now she won't use anything else.

As most guys have stated... the most important thing is to keep the leather hydrated. This can be done with wet rags or using a product like Lexol.

If you want THE best. Look no further than Chamberlain's Leather Milk: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007ZD...&robot_redir=1
