If you were to upgrade interior seats to leather

Oils you order the car from jeep custom made with leather or customize it after you buy it

when I ordered mine, they did not offer black leather so I went with Katzkins, if it would have been available I would have ordered factory black leather. which by the way you can order it now.

Get IGGEEs, goes over your stock seats and looks/acts/cleans, just like leather, unless you're hungup on the social status of "LEATHER"

It's about 15% the cost of leather

Actually the reason I asked this is because I'm going to check out a jeep tomorrow and the seller said she didn't get the leather seats installed by jeep she got them after she bought it because jeep didn't not have color she wanted
She said she paid 3500 australian for

I just want to see what would be better quality

While I really *like* leather seats in general and have had some very excellent ones in various rigs over the years.....somehow leather seats just doesn't seem 'right' to me for my own Wrangler. Having a Sahara I'm already perilously close to the 'unREAL Jeep' the way it is.....

Check out the Jeep and see if you like the seats. Some people like Leather some dont. If for some reason you choose to not want leather, you can always buy seat covers and be the first to start a thread on how you covered your leather with neoprene or some other material.

Vote for Iggee's

One question--do they smell like leather??

The lowest price I've seen for dealer installed Katzkins is $1200 US. The leather
just replaces the factory fabric so IMO--it sorta a "cover"

Igees are around $350-$400 and from what I've seen look just like leather installed.
