Sorry for the long post, but I want to give a through review on RedLine Goods and the product I just purchased from them.
A while back I read a post about RedLine Goods, who produce custom shifter boots, e-brake boots and steering wheel wraps, among other leather goods. In the post were a host of pictures of their products, but there were only a few of these products shown on a Jeep. Since I’m a sucker from customizing, and the look of there products intrigued me, I let my addiction get the best of me.
I decided to reach out to see if this company could produce a custom set off boots and steering wheel wrap for my rig. I was looking to do a matching set of black leather with red, white, and blue striping, to show a little American pride in my rig. I received a response the next day from Maciek from RedLine Goods stating that they would be more than happy to assist me in creating something that would help to distinguish my Jeep. We exchanged e-mails for a few days, and came to an agreement on what I was looking for. I ordered a full set, shifter boot, e-brake boot and steering wheel wrap for my rig.
A little over a week passed, and my package arrived. In it were all the items I had asked for, along with the smell of new leather. I inspected the pieces taking note of the quality of the manufacturing. The stitching was superb, the lines were perfect and the leather quality is outstanding. The two boots were lined up perfectly and the color for the striping was crisp. I could tell that these products were crafted with great care and pride.
The following Saturday I decided to install the items. Installation is quite simple; the e-brake boot simply slides over and tucks into the console with ease, instantly adding a pop to the bland jeep console. The shifter boot install is just as simple if you follow the instructions that are provided on RedLine Good’s website here: Jeep Wrangler 2007-10 shift boot installation - RedlineGoods leather shift boot store
. The only modification I made to these instructions was I used black plastic compression screws instead of bolts, to keep the look more in line with the factory.
I was the fist to have a steering wheel wrap made for the Jeep JK, so I can’t say how easy it was to wrap. (although they have instructions for this as well.) Since I was the first, RedLine offered to produce the wrap for free in exchange for my feedback. In our communication, we agreed that they would procure a wheel locally, produce the product, wrap wheel for me and ship it completed. In return, I agreed that I would install the new wheel and ship back my old wheel once complete. A fair price indeed!
I have to say that my experience with RedLine Goods and their staff was outstanding. They are very professional and accommodating. Their products are superior and the craftsman ship is outstanding. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase from them and I recommend that if you are in the market, or your feeling the itch to do something custom, you give RedLine your business.
