wow that's a lot of $$. Kudos to you though they look sharp. My jeep needs a lot of things more than seat covers that cost over $1K. One day though when I got my wish list smaller I will look into these.

Wow. I do like them. Well love them but man that's a lot of dough. Maybe if I buy my wife a bunch of stupid ass purses she will let me get them.

Yep they look nice, but that is a lot of money. They better be made out of real cats for that much. I will stick with my Besttop seat covers.

Those look great! If I had a tricked-out Rubicon, I might pick up a set. Probably overkill for my plain 'ol TJ. Lipstick on a pig, so to speak.

Well it was time to do something! The seats were tearing....and I will last WAY longer than buying seat covers every few years

I put Katkin on my Avalanche seating and the fitment was very tight, like brand new. Your leather looks like it may be a bit loose, so you may want to make sure you have them all on correctly and properly secured.

My seats were in terrible shape in the Wrangler, so I just got Corbeau seats. My TJ is a 97, so the seats were ready to go, and the Corbeaus REALLY hold you in there offroad really well. And I got a great price on them.

Did that price include heated seats? The local guy by me quoted $1345 out the door for heated. He did tell me that he puts the switches up by the rest of switches like they do in the factory. Said they'd be $900 without heaters.

I've heard that leather isn't optimal for wheeling in that you slide around on it more than cloth... cloth holds you in place better. I can imagine this being the case but don't know from experience. Anybody know about it??

Could just rip down all those stupid a$$ purses and sew them into seat covers!

Those Katz look good. Had those in my old 4Runner and they held up great over the years.

Yeah I rented a wrangler in Hawaii that had leather seats. We slid around a little just on some of the winding roads on Kauai, I'm sure it would be much more slippery doing some heavier off roading. I'd just throw some towels down. Unless Trek Armor decides to release covers that fit seats with air bags, I'm leaning towards some black and red katzkins. I think red looks bad ass in the anvil Jeeps.
